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 as a political refugee at the end of the eighties, when again through history the world was changing its shape and purpose. She creates her personal and often surreal world, where shapes, colors, and images are often utilized like words in a story. Living in the Soviet Union, Rozenman studied with today, well-known dissident artists, and was a part of Moscow's alternative cultural scene of the 1980’s.
She received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Since1989, her work has been represented nationally and internationally. In 2006, she was awarded a MacDowell Foundation Fellowship. She works in a wide range of schools, using art as a tool for personal growth.
