Moscow-born, both classically and conceptually trained, Alexandra Rozenman brings a canny and charming mysticism to her life and art. Rozenman came to America from Moscow, Russia as a political refugee at the end of the eighties, when again through history the world was changing its shape and purpose. Today her art explores the absurd tragedy of human life and society through a mixture of autobiography, symbolism and philosophy. She creates her personal and often surreal world, where shapes, colors and objects are utilized like words in a story. Rozenman studied in Russia with well-known dissident artists, and later received her Masters degree in 1997 from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, under Gerry Bergstein .
