Gary Rose: An American Artist
Gary Rose was born in New Rochelle, New York. His family moved to Los Angeles, California in 1951 and he has been drawing and painting as long as he can remember. Gary attended El Camino College, and served in the United States Navy from 1966 to 1968. As a Vietnam Veteran he reentered El Camino College graduating in 1972 with an AA degree in Business. While in the business field, he entered California State University, Dominguez Hills, graduating with a BA degree in Studio Art with a focus on painting, sculpture, and a minor in Art History with an emphasis on 20th Century Art. Gary’s hard edge works display a strong formal design background. His works are icons or symbols of his own personal experiences and expresses this through the art elements of light, color, form, line, and space. They are meant to be positive and uplifting and reflect the American tradition of organic, mechanical or architectural majesty. He currently resides in Calaveras County, California.
