Terry Rosenberg: Figuring Motion
As the dance advances, so his own performance dissolves and re-shapes from one moment to another, peursing new pictorial variations until it reached resolution. The outcome is neither a portrain nor an arvitrary effusion, but a particularized, intensely felt trace of two energized human beings in conjunction, now summarized in paint.Richard Kendall
Terry Rosenberg has explored the human form in motion for more than twenty years with a unique emphasis on dance. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited widely, in the USA and abroad, and can be found in numerous distinguished museum collections. Working directly from figures in rehearsal or in improvised movement, he integrates the explosive energy of dance with the emotional intensity of action painting, creating a synthesis of light, color and dynamic structure. His focus has included many leading dance groups such as: American Ballet Theatre, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Mark Morris Dance Group, and Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.
