From the Studio February, 2010

The latest from the studio. Actually completed last month in time for entry into a show in Seattle.

I like the aesthetic of this piece, which is actually a re-work of an earlier piece that sold (the only one that sold!) when I showed at Redtail Gallery last year. That show, called Paradise Lost and Found, was a collection of assemblages dealing with gender issues, including the mythologies of relationships, romantic love, etc.

This piece has a bit of an edge to it. I like that. It's not what it appears to be. Things rarely are so simple, right?

This is called Free Love.

For Immediate Release

The Dark Room: Welcome Obscura

Roger Ralston will construct a Camera Obscura, or dark room in the gallery. This is an investigation of the projection of images from our world into a dream space constructed in the gallery. A camera obscura is a Renaissance period construction used to investigate light and perspective. Roger will also exhibit drawings he uses as investigative steps in making sculpture. Bronze cast plaques will be a part of the exhibition. His work approaches drawing and casting using a subtle poetic set of forms structuring a conversation of nuance and relationship in story telling.

Lisa Nappa and Chris Tillia will exhibit recent work. Lisa will exhibit ceramic constructions continuing her work with water as a theme. She will have a number of constructions made from cut and modified prints using water as an initial source of imagery. Chris Tillia will exhibit his continuing work with ceramic materials. Chris works with ceramic materials to create sculptural forms through non-traditional shapes. He has been working on a set of cast
