Michael X. Rose: Saints and Specters
Gold, Icons, and Altarpieces
April 11 - 26, 2020
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 11, 5:00-7:00 PM
A body of work that explores sorcery and necromancy contrasted against the light of the Truth.
As a wayward teen in Brussels, Belgium, Michael learned to live off the streets and his wits. He spent his days inside the great museums, and could be seen always drawing from the Old Masters, especially Rubens. A patron assisted him in travelling to America to attend art school at Pratt Institute in NYC.
Michael lives in a 17th century farmhouse in Bruynswick, Ulster Co., N.Y. with his wife Kristina and their eight children, most of whom were adopted during repeated voyages to the Far East.
