Artwork

A tranquil hidden portrait emerges from expressive strokes of luminous blue and electric green. "I was inspired by the current need for and loss of social interaction behind today’s masks," says artist Rozanne Hermelyn Di Silvestro.

Rozanne's working method straddles the fields of painting and printmaking. To create this piece, she painted freely on a smooth acrylic glass plate using oil inks. Then she printed the image onto rag paper using an etching press, resulting in a one-of-a-kind monotype. Finally, Rozanne mounted the artwork on a custom wood panel. It's important to note that even though the image is printed, it can only be printed once.

Artist Rozanne Hermelyn DiSilvestro exposes secret inner turmoil through the sweeping brushstrokes in her portraits. Her art career traces back to her childhood and the support of her mother, who was a fashion designer and seamstress. "She taught me to sew from a very early age," says Rozanne. "At twelve, I begged her to sign me up for the adult education figure drawing class in the room next door to her painting class. To this day, I still participate in weekly life drawing sessions." Rozanne continued to study art and design in college, and then worked for several years in the creative industry in Los Angeles and San Francisco before opening her own design firm. After twenty years running a successful design business, she felt it was time to transition and express her voice through fine art. Today, Rozanne finds inspiration for her artwork during trips to museums and poring over books. "When I accidentally came upon Russian-American painter Sergei Bongart, my creative life finally clicked," she explains. "His words, 'art is more than a product of your efforts; it should be about feeling, life, attitude, soul,' still inspire me every day." Rozanne's work has been acquired by the Harvard Art Museums and the Library of Congress, and her paintings are published in Reed Magazine, California's oldest literary journal, and in The California Printmaker journal.
