BIOGRAPHY

Rosalie Lang's work has always focused on the fine details of surfaces natural and otherwise. Lang's current paintings feature indepth studies of geological elements. In retrospect, she credits the direction of her work to a range of experiences: endless rock hunts, the appearance of a seashell-impregnated fossil in her backyard--a fragment of a vanished underwater world, and many return visits to photograph dramatic coastal areas of California.

Lang studied art and art education at Queens College, City University of New York, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree. She focused on oil painting and photography at Pratt Institute, NY earning a Master of Science degree. Awarded an NDEA Title IV Fellowship, Lang went on to research Art Education methodology at New York University where she earned a Doctorate of Education. As an Assistant Professor, she taught Art Education at The College of New Jersey, Ewing Township, NJ and at San Jose State University, San Jose, CA.

The Formations Series has been an encompassing experience for Lang bringing together geology, photography, rock collecting, intricate patterning, and, of course, painting. The overall concept of this series paves the way for Lang to explore and then visually bring forth the complexity of lace-like surface configurations. An important element in Lang's journey is the photographic record she maintains of her visits to coastal areas. Many of those photographs are included in an album documenting the location and appearance of each selected rock formation and its corresponding painting. The Formations paintings are exhibited at and included in the collections of the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC and the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, Pacific Grove, CA.

In addition to gallery shows on both coasts, Lang’s exhibition record includes: Monterey Museum of Art, Monterey, CA, Art Museum of Los Gatos, Los Gatos, CA, New Jersey State Museum, Trenton, NJ, Morris Museum, Morristown, NJ, and Jersey City Museum, Jersey City, NJ. Her work is represented in numerous public and private collections.
