> DESCRIPTION

Things In Themselves is a selection of paintings, drawings and other two-dimensional objects by Rachel Roske. Her work employs subject matter as a means to an end of exploring the nature of representation, perception and abstraction. Trompe l’oeil painting techniques, manipulations of surface and physical supports and collage are among the devices Roske uses to exploit the contradictions of the canvas as both literal, physical object and conceptualized pictorial space.

 

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 18th, 6–8pm
