Anti-conformist expressionist painter
Solomon Rossine is the artistic name that Albert Solomonovich Rozin took in the midst of the 1960's while he worked as a school teacher in one of the villages in Arkhangelsk Region. That time had been had been defined the basic subjects of his art that was close to the aesthetics of Non-conformism.
Solomon Rossine aspires to understand the drama of the Russian history of the 20th century as the reflection of the dark and tragic sides of the universe and its deep incomprehensible essence. A humiliated and suffering "little man" whose image frequently appears in the artist’s works is able to turn into the majestic or tragic hero. The sensation of anxiety conveys the emotional manner of painting, the contrasting combinations of colours, deformations and displacements of forms. It is no mere chance that many of the presented works may be apprehended as the spiritual self-portraits of the master who reflects on the fate of a lonely and unprotected man in the huge world.
"In Russia, the sun does not always shine. A strong wind drives the yellow leaves along the earth and a threatening motif wobbles through the tall firs, like strings. This is vulnerability. That which is dear, that which is beautiful, that which is a stunning revelation."
