Artist/Educator multi-disciplinary media arts
Rozita Fogelman is a Russian/American conceptual artist and eco-art activist. Born in 1964 in Tbilisi, Georgia, she immigrated with her family to Israel in 1975, and since 1998 she lives and works in Berkeley, California.
She studied dance and music in Tbilisi, Georgia; graphic design and sculpture in Jaffa, Tel Aviv at Avni Institute of Art and Design, and in 2011 she pioneered a new multi-disciplinary media art graduate program at California State University East Bay with emphasis on multimedia, communication and contemporary studio practice arts.
Influenced by dance and jazz, shamanism and Zen, dada and Art School of New York, the ancient Jewish Kabbalah and Gutenberg's Movable type, science and technology, I distinguish visual communication and sound as my first language out of five.
My work is conceptual, experimental, abstract representational often triggered by language, and use of multi-media times study of a single hue or a minimal form of structure using contemporary and traditional media... I love to try.
"Style of Fogelman's work is mainly abstract expressionist with emphasis on experimental use of unconventional tools and techniques. The work's primary focus is on energy, color and surface exploring metaphysical concepts." -- Grace Munakata
