Lot Details

Edward del Rosario uses painting to explore a narrative that deals with power struggles and the aftermath of a post post-colonial world. His paintings, oil on linen, consist of a cast of characters staged on minimalist color backgrounds. The cast of characters is numerous but finite and the compositions and backgrounds vary from painting to painting. The compositions are snapshots of characters engaged in some ambiguous comedic or dramatic scene drawn from the narrative. The scenes often redefine the narrative, and over the years, have modified and transformed it into an organic meta-narrative.

Del Rosario was born in 1970 in St. Louis Missouri - he studied painting originally at the University of Kansas and later at the Rhode Island School of Design. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
