Dreams of Reality & Mortality

DREAMS OF REALITY & MORTALITY, a portfolio of 20 images featuring pictures which engage the audience's emotions so that the viewer becomes personally involved. Rosenstein's subjects appear to hide both inwardly and outwardly until they become ghost-like and shrouded. Exhibiting a mystical, supernatural quality, the images give a sense of veiled, deep inner emotions encouraging the viewer to imagine the story behind the effigy. Her photographs range from painterly, classical studies with the figure painted in light to infrared visions of allegorical mysticism. This body of work builds on the artist's previous figurative portfolios. Her newer images, including those in this portfolio, have become increasingly more narrative. Secretive and occasionally troubling, her photographs often reveal her hidden fears and Dreams of Reality and Mortality.
