about

Miga Rossetti’s unique artistic method involves “mental mapping” through running and walking, establishing a deep, physical connection to the land. This interaction enriches her art, infusing literal and metaphorical exploration into her work. Rossetti’s paintings meld the external natural world with her inner emotional landscape. Her dynamic compositions are not mere depictions but vibrant explorations demonstrating a profound engagement with her environment.

Working impulsively on wood and paper, the artist employs acrylic paint, plaster, and mixed media on varied substrates. Materials are applied urgently with fingers, brushes, rollers, credit cards, and scrapers, reflecting a life lived messily, unconventionally, yet boldly. Initial high-contrast shapes, colors, and lines evolve through layering and excavation, building rich, textured surfaces where movement is palpable, capturing the subtle clues and dynamic energy of the landscape.

MIga Rossetti holds a BFA from the University of Michigan, School of Art & Design and studied at Fortman Studio in Florence Italy. Her career includes solo and group shows spanning thirty five years. Miga’s work is in art collections across the globe, most recently included to the Permanent Collection of Chateau d’Orquevaux International Artists & Writers Collection in France. Born in Detroit, Michigan she lives and paints in Wilson, Wyoming.
