Brenau University Galleries is proud to present, Excerpts in Paint, an upcoming solo exhibition of dynamic and colorful abstract paintings created by internationally known artist, Ferdinand Rosa. 

Using the essence of the landscape as inspiration, Rosa cultivates an abstract aesthetic through the simplification and distortion of representational elements while being surrounded by the energy of the earth’s natural terrain and wildlife. His unique translation of the landscape while visiting places like Costa Rica, or San Miguel’s, Eternal Spring, is captured in multiple layers of paint, revealing bold gestural marks and energetic color fields. Each captivating painting reveals not only a sense and spirit of place, but a poetic implication that is deeply soulful and full of mystery. 

Rosa hopes that by sharing his love and dedication to painting, a sacred encounter may ensue between his work and the viewer- deepening ties to life’s metaphysical components, while also awakening the spiritual avenues one can only experience through art.

Don’t miss this captivating exhibition, highlighting the works from Ferdinand Rosa’s, Costa Rican Rhapsody and Tsunami Eulogies Series.

Excerpts in Paint, will be on view from Jan. 16th – March 23rd in the President’s Gallery located upstairs in Brenau University’s Simmons Visual Art Center.
