As an emergent artist, Jonathan Rosen has established his stable and recognizable style in the early stage of creating. Seizing the power of visuals and words, at the same time, delicately observing the inner part of people. Rosen exposes the desire that people tend to hide in the deep of mind through collaging and carving away the words “I WANT …”. Leaving an unfulfilled dream both conceptually and in structure. Rosen’s work grant viewers a safe space to reflect on their own desires. He believes love is the basis of wanting. If these remain untold, they will never have the power to manifest.
