Born 1954 in Hartford, Connecticut
Terry Rosenberg has explored the human form in motion for more than twenty years with a unique emphasis on dance. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited widely, in the United States and abroad, are included in numerous distinguished museum collections. Working directly from figures in rehearsal or in improvised movement, he integrates the explosive energy of motion with the emotional intensity of action painting, creating a synthesis of light and dynamic structure. His focus has included many leading dance groups such as: American Ballet Theatre, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Mark Morris Dance Group, and Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.
A lifetime Yankees fan, Rosenberg has also produced a series working directly from the baseball players. Terry worked with the UNO Wrestling Team to produce this series of lithographs at UNO. He drew directly on aluminum lithograph plates while observing the wrestlers in action to produce each image. The result is a suite of prints that seem to be a mixture of action painting and calligraphy.
Terry Rosenberg lives and works in New York City.
