Rozsi Adean Moser
Works and lives in Sudbury, Massachusetts
I was born, raised, and educated in the midwest in a home filled with artists, musicians and writers, and with people from all walks of life. I loved coming of age in the late ‘60s and was very lucky in my choice of parents who were broadminded (mostly!), interested in everything, and we had a home where conversation and debate was a daily occurrence.
As kids, my siblings and I were encouraged to read, ask questions, play music of all genres, challenge conventional thought and wisdom, with each of us truly becoming our own person. Music has remained a constant passion in my life, and from an early age I had a passion for appreciating and now creating art.
As Chagall said, I work in whatever medium likes me best. I love the freedom to monoprint collage papers one day, paint the next, and marble fabric the next. In my studio, I’d say versatility is one of the primary components of my artwork. While my mixed media pieces can range from 4 to 12 inches square, I have also done paintings as large as six by six feet. Almost all of my paintings can be considered mixed media, though, as I also include many types of printing and mark making in my work with graphite pencils, handmade stamps, crayons and pastels.
I love to teach, and I’ve led workshops for the last ten years in journal making, gelatin plate printing, marbling, mixed media classes, and abstract painting workshops.
I admire so many artists from the Impressionists to the Fauvists and many, many others. Strong early influences include Rouault, Soutine, Macke, Delaunay, and also the works of artists such as Pollock, Herbin, and Sargent.
I welcome any comments or questions about my work!
