YVETTE ROCK/ INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL EXPLORATIONS/ NCA GALLERY/
SEPTEMBER 7- OCTOBER 26/ OPENING AND ARTISTS TALK & FILM OCTOBER 24, 2019, 5:30pm
Four years ago painter and mixed media artist Yvette Rock had her first exhibition at the NCA Gallery entitled “Conversations”. Her works since that time reflect a new clarity of theme, materiality and design. Focusing on a sharpness of image, she pursues avenues to incorporate organic forms, fibrous materials, and processes of painting and drawing. Photography has found its way into her repertoire to encompass both performance and installation. Yvette Rock furthers the conversation on her art practice. - Shirley Reid, Director of National Conference of Artists
Thoughts about recent work:
"There is a constant movement and synergy between my internal conversations and observations of the world around me. These works reflect the exploration and relationship between in/out, interior/exterior, internal/external. These conversations lead me to create works using a wide range of materials, media, and approaches, including painting, drawing, performance, video, and installation. I ask questions about how my existence and internal self is affected by the world around me. I explore what was literally inside of me (four human beings over the course of five years) and how social, political, and geographical systems around me affect human beings and the human condition. Series that reflect these explorations are One, Money Head, and Cord Dance.”
This exciting exhibition opens Saturday, September 7 and continues to October 26, 2019.
