Abstract Artist Rosalind Brenner exhibited her artwork this past weekend at Ashawagh Hall
Springs in East Hampton.
Rosalind Brenner is owner and president of Manor Art Glass Studio in East Hampton, New York. Her unique designs and master craftsmanship have won her continuous commissions, including new work and restorations in ecclesiastic settings, homes and department stores throughout the country. Her art glass is in landmarks buildings in New York, such as The Chrysler Building, as well as the New School, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and others. Her paintings and art glass are in many fine homes. She runs a busy studio where there are many works in progress, new as well as restorations.
Rosalind has painted on glass and created gouache presentations for her stained glass since the inception of her studio in 1972. She worked under two mentors, Benoit Gilsoul and Robert Cariola, who shared their knowledge of glass art and painting with her and she had a three-year apprenticeship at The Greenland Studio in New York City, where she worked on the restoration of stained glass from the Cloisters and the Metropolitan Museum.
In 1992 Rosalind began painting in watercolor, oils and acrylics, and experimenting with collage.
Rosalind's art pushes painting into the realm of the contemporary by blending her own re-purposed artwork and materials and experimenting with techniques to explore concepts and ideas. The work is a fusion of the observed and the purely imaginative. She enjoys painting inner landscapes, which range from luminous and evocative abstraction to forms from nature, women, calligraphy, figures, creatures and music. Her stained glass background is evident in her use of color, line and shape. Rosalind received her MFA in poetry from Sarah Lawrence College and often begins a visual work with a verbal concept drawn onto the support that becomes partially obscured as the image emerges
Rosalind is a published poet currently creating books with her images and her poetry.
