ABOUT Roxanne:

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work realizes my primal journey toward truth.

Fabric layers perform a literal evolution of the creative labor encompassing the hand and energy of the maker and the unseen dimension of idea. In my work, I attempt to expose ordinary truths throughout the whole and in the subtext of the spaces between.  I hope to enlighten the viewers' participation through their own discoveries provoked by the metaphors.

 

With or without a sketch, I gather scraps intuitively.   The pieces - hand-dyed cloth,  things made during prior experiments, photographs, words, paint, threads -  become meaningful as they find their places in the composition.    I map the relationships among the pieces into a narrative that represents the nature of memory.   It is often blurred, obscured, muted, stained with glimmers of color and clarity.  The work becomes a window into important meanings - place, transformation, paradox - inherent in personal history and helps me navigate to new discoveries and support the continuum of my practice.
