Stacey Rozich Illustrations Folk Art

Stacey Rozich’s illustrations live in the woods of our imaginations, in the tales of our ancestors and the drawings that have come out of our folk traditions. Through her contemporary take on tradition she has created her own mythology, her own stories that borrow freely from the indigenous tribes of America to the traditional costumes of the Balkans from West African tribal masks to the matryoshka dolls of Russia.

Her work varies from bold folk art in watercolor and gouache,to simple pen and ink line drawings in which pattern and textile design predominate. It is art inspired by the likes of early German woodblock prints, Paul Gauguin, Egon Shiele, Gustav Klimt, Henri Rousseau and Dan Clowes.

Here’s what she has to say about her work:

I’m working to create a narrative about an early culture and their relationship with nature and animals. Besides that, I like the viewer to come up with his or her own interpretation of my work. Usually it’s a very nostalgic reaction, a sense of these tales being long forgotten yet hauntingly familiar.
