HANOVER, NH.- Cynthia-Reeves New England presents its concluding summer solo exhibition by Jane Rosen, titled "Full Circle", currently on view through September 22, 2012. Rosen's ability to evoke both enigma and precision with her work, as she subtly and elegantly reconciles the relationships between nature and culture, are what make her artworks resonate with viewers. She senses the movements beyond the physical world, and tries to understand it through her art-making process. "One of the reasons for making art is to express that for which there are no words...for something to be really art, not social commentary, it has to engage more of the viewer. It has to activate what can be felt, what can be sensed, and what can be thought." Her chosen subjects, animals wild and tame, are used as vehicles to explore ideas of instinct and innate intelligence. For Rosen, understanding animal nature is a key to understanding human nature.

"Art is not just about making things; rather, art-making is a noble pursuit that enables a higher sense of awareness, of being alive." Rosen is fascinated by the cultures of the Eskimos, Native Americans, and Egyptians, for whom art was a by-product of an investigation into being and mortality, rather than an aesthetic pursuit. Rosen excels across many media including drawing, sculpture, painting, printmaking, and glass blowing. She uses non-traditional mediums including coffee, animal skins, and a self-created "marble mix." Her manipulation of these and other materials reflects her ideas of forms, shapes, and figures, as she strives to "engage her viewers in negotiating the relationship between perception and cognition".

Rosen was selected by the American Academy of Arts and Letters for inclusion in the 2010 Annual Invitational in New York, a prestigious exhibition juried by some of the greatest artists of our time. A masterful and sought after teacher, as well as a prolific artist, Rosen has taught at numerous elite institutions including the School of Visual Arts, Bard College, La Coste School of the Arts in France, Stanford University, and the University of California at Berkeley.
