Alfonse Borysewicz (born April 27, 1957) is a Brooklyn-based painter. He received his B.A. from Sacred Heart Seminary and M.A. from St. John’s Provincial Seminary. He later attended the Studio School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (1982–1984). He is the recipient of two fellowships from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation (1987, 1992)[1] and a Guggenheim Fellowship (1995).[2] Gregory Wolfe, an editor at Image, calls Borysewicz "one of the most important religious artists since the French Catholic Georges Rouault.”

 

According to Joseph Masheck, formerly Editor-in-chief of Artforum, "Borysewicz is essentially an abstract painter, but on behalf of a religious thematic his works have long been able to accommodate iconographic signs (Western sense). At the same time, as one who has executed an altarpiece and a processional cross for the Brooklyn Oratory (spiritual equipment, one could say), Borysewicz has always struck me as the contemporary painter best attuned to the Byzantine, and then Orthodox, icon as a highly abstract image capable of tendering a spiritual, even devotional, stance in virtue of its highly stylized semiotic.".
