Artist Rosalind Revilock-Frost Gallery Talk Thurs, Dec. 1 6:30pm

art-practical

Please join us as Rye Public Library welcomes artist Rosalind Revilock-Frost for a “gallery talk” event.  Rosalind will discuss her unique soft -sculptural artwork which currently hangs at the Library.   Rosalind tells us: “ I make soft sculpture cloth constructions. By incorporating fabric, batting and wire, I create a three-dimensional wall hanging that dances off the wall and moves out into space”.  She feels that art gives an alternative avenue to view things one doesn’t normally see. This expands visual context and makes life come to life.

Rosalind’s works are meant to be visually exciting as well as sculpturally tactile. There is a juxtaposition and play between the pliable softness of fabric and the hard superstructure and movement created by the wire. The basic technique she uses is traditional hand-piecing and hand–quilting methods. Yet these are anything but your grandmother’s quilt.  “By manipulating the wire my sculpture moves, twists and snakes around, dances. In fact most people want to interact with them by touching them and I don’t mind that at all. Color also brings a tremendous visual vitality to the work. I have a deep connection with color. The play of color adds a pop and gives a rich focus and depth to the work.”
