Adriana Rostovsky, ‘Resiento’, 2016, Elisa Contemporary

Born in Uruguay, Adriana Rostovsky trained as an architect. Her art is informed and driven by a European history of conservation. This childhood penchant for collecting “unusable items” evolved into an adult passion for treasuring day to day objects and giving them new life in the form of combined media in relief.

As an adult, Rostovsky has traveled around the world, immersing herself in different cultures. As a visual artist, Rostovsky is drawn to transforming into art discarded materials that bring extensive history with them. She has been engaged on an international basis in many interdisciplinary projects, with focus on sustainability. Her artwork has been in group and solo exhibitions in Uruguay, Holland, CT and NY and a recent exhibit at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
