Art in Place
Nearly 4½ decades after arriving at the Kansas City Art Institute from his native South Wales, Warren Rosser stands as one of the city’s creative masters. The works of the acclaimed and internationally exhibited artist are featured in the Library exhibit Coloring Space, a collection of series he has created since receiving a Charlotte Street Foundation award in 2000.
Rosser, the William T. Kemper Distinguished Professor of Painting at KCAI, discusses those works and what they convey – how each series of paintings carries on a conversation with each other and the crucial role of color and color adjustments in intensifying various movements and setting rhythm. He is joined by musicians Thomas Aber and Dwight Frizzell, whose compositions have taken inspiration from Rosser and his art.
