Art for art is not honorable object.
Art is a universal language,

to reveal consciousness and sincere emotions

OUTLINES

Charles Rosberg sought to free himself from restrictions and boundaries found between art movements. Thus, he founded the VISIOMENTAL ART SCHOOL that breaks through these barriers.

He never strayed from representing the human figure as his main theme, though he did not present their features based on appearance. Their character is structured from a blend of “gestural abstraction”, which he named “the mental contrast of the character”, or the act of capturing the inner man.

Charles Rosberg became a master at blending in a unique expressionistic signature, the abstract and figurative, in a solid construction, based on the mind’s eye perspective—the VISIOMENTAL PERSPECTIVE.

His subjects impose their shapes and colors with their exact value, all structured in a dynamic energy.
For Charles Rosberg, art is life on a stage

DÉFINITION

VISIOMENTAL art is one in which subjective artworks
are presented in their original VISIOMENTAL perspective,
projected directly from the mind’s eye, without interpretations or readjustments imposed by the standard of our optical measure

BIOGRAPHIE

Born in 1955, Charles Rosberg’s artistic calling budded early. At the age of fourteen in secondary school, his art teacher chose him amongst few others to attend free art lessons on weekends, where he discovered the mysteries of his paint brush lay before him.

Later, his passion drew him to study art in alternative schools. He also attended various art studios run by experienced painters who helped further his skills and technique, allowing him to forge his individual style.

Indeed, his own research soon thereafter led him to find his own personal theory. He became convinced that the dialectic of modern times would persuade our human nature to turn the page on the stagnant, synthetic, contemporary art that has instilled itself in art since the sixties, toward an advanced art style that emanated from the “mental” eye.  An art style that inspired, and was itself nourished and germinated from the perpetual motion of the experience of life, much like poetry. Such sources of inspirations are endless. They bear the fruit for authentic and sincere artistic creations.

At the age of eighteen, Charles Rosberg finished school and took part in the family-owned commercial business, as he was still unable to devote himself to art. In his line of work, he frequently travelled on business trips to crowded, bustling cities around the world. Meanwhile, he also attended conferences in art institutions. The cadence of this life consumed him for many years. After the shock that settled over the world post-September 11, 2001, which took place while he was in Manhattan, he decided to consecrate the rest of his life to his art.

LA FONDATION

The years during which Charles Rosberg experienced unsettling life, were in fact, the foundation on which he built his art and the sources of his inspiration for his VISIOMENTAL subjects. On account of his countless travels, at times he lived through disturbing conflicts, harsh conditions, and deeply upsetting disasters in many countries. The emotional tension of those events marked his memory for life time.

Besides his personal research, he also met a number of painters, stemming from all corners of the globe, who captured his attention. Some inspired him to push the boundaries of his artistic ability, especially in his early years.

His art was deeply influenced by Picasso and Francis Bacon, masters he held in high regards since he was a teenager. Later, he highly admired the creative temptations of Jackson Pollock, Jean Dubuffet, Joan Miro and Robert Rauschenberg.

SUMMARY

From Charles Rosberg’s undefined artistic creations emerge an unusual aesthetic atmosphere of unknown dimensions—the VISIOMENTAL.

He fused, through his audacious artistic pursuits, the “figurative abstract” by coalescing Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism, as well as their execution techniques, thus bringing them together in an aesthetic dialogue generated from his inner-man feelings.

His style captivates the mind, like the movement of a New Wave symphony. His works are retrospective reflections composed by the perpetual motions of life. His inspirations are endless and timeless. VISIOMENTAL reveals the eternal paradox of art, sight and memory, both overtaken by the contradiction of appearance, projected in a visionary wink.
