    Marcos Rosales holds an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and a BFA from University of North Texas in Denton, TX. He has recently exhibited work at Peres Projects, Los Angeles, Angstrom Gallery in Dallas, Steven Wolf Fine Arts in San Francisco and staged performances at The Kitchen and Movement Research @ Judson Church in New York. He has won numerous grants and awards including The DeGolyer Grant from the Dallas Museum of Art and a grant from The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation.

    Marcos Rosales was born in Waco and raised by an adopted family in central Texas. His background is reflected in his deeply psychological work that is both cryptic and sardonic. Earlier works documented his search for his biological family with several pieces relating to an actual letter found in his adoption files. This emotional and apologetic letter from his biological mother was covered with black ink scribbles concealing all pertinent information. In Rosales’ world, colored by a rural upbringing of witchcraft, Santeria, tarot cards, and faith healers, the logic of autobiography leads not to the concrete but to twins, doppelgangers and multiple personalities.

    Rosales mines his collection of stream- of-conscious writings lifting words and phrases from his poems, stories, and monologues transforming them into scripts for his numerous video works, as well as transformed into songs by the electronica band Experimental Make-Up. Other texts reemerge in his paintings as barely recognizable references, more abstract imagery than words. Their cryptic messages and surreal proclamations subliminally inhabit the stark white surfaces of his paintings. His works serve as documents of translation upon translation, passed through numerous filters of Rosales’s own attempts to make sense of his experiences.
