I am a self-taught artist and my vision is to let the flow pour from within my soul to bring forth into this world objects of wonders as art is like magic to me.

Ceramics and drawings are my main focus, they are generally abstract in form and colorful. My work has been described as introspective in its essence.

My latest works, were born after a physical injury where I wasn’t able to work for a year. It made me realize that one cannot take for granted the ability to create, and every piece of art I create is somehow, a miracle. My recent work tell the story of a broken spirit’s journey. These pieces express my fears and sorrows, yet ultimately my infinite joy in bringing forth into this world a bit of love.

#StayHomeOpenStudios with Rosa Naparstek

NoMAA presents a series of studio tours with Uptown artists each Thursday at 7:30pm.
Open Studios are a much anticipated part of the Uptown Arts Stroll. NoMAA is continuing that tradition with our series of virtual tours.

Rosa Naparstek’s artwork explores both the emotional roots of the world we create personally and politically and our culturally acquired templates through which we view the world. She works with found objects to create mixed-metaphor sculptures that challenge our accepted meaning of things. Rosa is interested in the connection between art (the aesthetic experience) and its power for personal/political transformation. She presents her work in conjunction with “Circles of Engagement”, a community building process she helped develop that allows participants to explore their own feelings and deepen connections with one another.

Naparstek came to America as a young child, a refugee of WWII. Much of her work centers around childhood memories and experiences and is concerned with questions of cruelty and its source within us. She has come to believe that the primary source of evil lies in our ability to deny our own pain, fear, and vulnerability. As a student, she was a political activist and became an attorney in her commitment to social and political change. Rosa is a co-founder of the Uptown Arts Stroll, and has participated every year. She is a founder and director of Artists Unite, an arts organization which has organized the MTA-Artists Unite Subway Elevator Poster Project for ten years, the only community art project of its kind in the city.

UPCOMING ARTISTS

Emmanuel Abreu is a New York City based photographer who has been collaborating with his Uptown community of Washington Heights/Inwood since the start of his career. His images tend to capture the raw joy in almost any situation, and this is why his work led him to become a professional wedding photographer. His travel photography focuses on landscape, street, and sometimes portraiture, just like in his neighborhood. Some of his work has been featured on media outlets like the local Manhattan Times, New York Times, and Local Blogs, as well as sites like HuffPost and Gothamist. He hopes to continue capturing the love and beauty of his community for years to come.
