Harold Rosario

Harold Rosario is a Miami-based contemporary artist. Although primarily focusing on the medium of painting, he also has branched out into the digital format creating works like“Going for the Arts” a digital photomontage consisting of over 1000 images to create a single image. Rosario’s work has been exhibited at a variety of venues in the Miami area including the BAC, Artcenter of South Florida, MOCA’s guests corridor and Redbar Gallery.

His most ambitious work is a series entitled “The Opposite of Missery.” In a subtle play of shapes and forms the expresses intimate thoughts  and memories. The following excerp is an abstract from his thesis explaning this extensive body of work:

What is happiness? For me, it is something I can only imagine with the aid of knowing its opposite. Taoism will tell us that the path to happiness is through harmony. Nothing symbolizes this Ying Yang concept more than the union between a man and a woman during love. A Chinese proverb tells us “on the one side yin (a ‘man’) on the other yang (a ‘woman’) this is the essence of Tao.” Thus, between a man and a woman insists the same harmony as do day and night. These paintings chronicle a state in which I used art to imagine the opposite.
