Two metro exhibits highlight the work of FSU Studio Art alum Robin Rose.
In Washington, DC, through April 12, you can see his piece Cleave in Catholic University’s exhibit Under the Influence:Reverberations of the Washington Color School. Washington Post reviewer Mark Jenkins remarked “One intriguing surprise is the appropriateness of a painting by Robin Rose, who’s known neither for bright colors nor filmy textures. His “Cleave” isn’t a departure from his usual thickly layered style, but within the picture’s branch-like patterns are nearly bare areas that almost seem lighted from within. Rose didn’t imitate Louis or Nolan to make “Cleave” but the painting’s glow does suggest an enduring sensibility, if not a direct influence.” “http://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/museums/under-the-influence-celebrates-the-washington-color-school/2014/03/27/8642832a-b323-11e3-bab2-b9602293021d_story.html
