Roxane Hollosi uses mixed media to produce detailed, multi-layered, textural images of organic forms and shapes. See more of her rhythmic and healing art by visiting her website.
My work is about bringing visual form to feelings, rhythms and ideas that live in and around me. It is a journey where I weave together my internal emotions with my external realities and have them meet on a safe platform, the canvas.
My inspiration is its own internal flame, fueled by the need to bring a visual voice to the intangible ambiances around me. The meditative and healing nature of the creative process combined with the organic forms of nature is at the heart of my inspiration.
I often speculate that my shapes, colors and textures were influenced by the clothing, jewelry and totem poles I saw as a child growing up in Pipestone, Minnesota, near a large Native American population.
I am continuously working on several ideas and materials at the same time, one idea simultaneously fueling another.
Every material and technique has a unique visual vocabulary, and my curiosity activates much experimentation, so while working on a painting I get inspired to explore how the idea might translate into a collage, drawing or wood assemblage.
My series I Hear the Feet of Rain Approaching is about being steadfast in the droughts of your life and embracing the conviction that there will be rejuvenating rain on the horizon.
A couple of my other series, Dancing Thru the Canyons and Ebb and Flow, symbolize the highs and lows of life. I use colors, patterning, curves and edges as a metaphor for life, which is not smooth, flat or stagnant. It is full of color and complexity and, just as a shape lacks definition without edges, curves or points, so does life.
In my Spirhouette series, I am searching for a visual form to represent the intangible energies that are in and around us. I combined the word Spirit, representing the internal essence and unique identity we posses with Silhouette, representing the external bodily container that we live in.
By using lively mark making, a vibrant palette and rich textural surfaces in my work, I invite the viewer to hop inside and walk around awhile.
