> DESCRIPTION

Rita Baragona explores the dance of perception in her paintings and sketchbook pages.  The closer she looks, the more complex the process.  For her, it is not enough to be an eye.  The eye only gathers sensations, which the mind codifies.  Baragona’s intent is to make tangible the patterns of energy found within matter’s solidity.  She struggles with maintaining outward appearance while finding a visual language, which gets past the cultural preconceptions so ingrained in everyone’s mind.  She is intrigued by the fact that our eyes move in erratic fractal patterns not unlike those she sees at the edges of form.  The process of seeing for Baragona is an interaction between inner and outer perception, knowledge and feeling.
