"Pink is a chronicle of a daily art practice written in graphic form. Comprised of several hundred sketchbook drawings created over the past two years, the book charts the construction of a personal cosmology by the simplest and most immediate of art-making tools: drawing. A fascination with ugliness, the grotesque and dark social satire informs these pieces, whose focus recurrently turns to the human face: wide-eyed, warped and awash in viscous tears. This compulsive point of study suggests a psychologically deep tradition – from the totemic mo’ai of Easter Island and the eviscerating gaze of portraits by fellow Missourian James Edward Deeds (a.k.a. the “Electric Pencil”), to painterly influences such as Philip Guston and Dana Schutz. Throughout Rosenblith’s work, the color pink prevails – not as the precious, saccharine hue as it’s now popularly known, but as a color turned sour and raw, vulnerable and nauseously unsettling. It’s Sienese red perverted or a modern-day Renaissance, through which the observable world is translated by the unhindered id- riven mind." - Jessica Baran
