About My Father’s Room
My Father’s Room is a memoir from artist Roland Salazar Rose who draws on his life’s history and relationship with his father, which has been strained and the impact of his divorce in the process. In the included companion work The Four Seasons of the Master Myth, he discusses his influences as an artist. With much to ponder about what creates us, My Father’s Room is a strong addition to memoir and art collections.”

About The Four Seasons of the Master Myth
Commentary by filmmaker and editor Jef Taylor on the DVD The Four Seasons of the Master Myth, written/narrated/produced by Roland Salazar Rose:
“The Four Seasons of the Master Myth is a unique combination of words, images, music, and video of the artist at work in his studio that captures the thoughts, philosophy, and art of seasoned painter Roland Salazar Rose. Written and narrated by the artist himself Salazar ruminates on his Four Seasons of the Master Myth philosophy and how it ties into his work particularly the 1000 images he created during his years in Mexico, while video of him painting in his studio in Maine is interspersed with photographs of his work. The four sections of the video each reflect a “season” of Salazar’s life, in which he reads from his memoir, My Father’s Room, and reflects candidly on his “Four Seasons” with both humor and insight. It is a fascinating and compelling portrait of a man—Roland – looking back on his life, and an artist—Salazar—discussing his life’s work as we watch him create new work, and continue his path through the Four Seasons of the Master Myth.” See Trailor here.
