Rosette

@Charlie James Gallery, Curated by Mary Anna Pomonis

Mary Anna Pomonis has curated a thoughtful and nuanced exhibition entitled Rosette in the project space at Charlie James Gallery. Working with the central idea of the constructed image of a rose with all its itinerant histories and meanings, etc. the works in this exhibition, which include Mark Dutcher’s lovely albeit sorrowful rosebush made of colored wax and Sabina Ott’s Mater Rosa I from a series of lithographs that depict the rose as a strangely regressive shape, mirroring the circle, in some way echo both the fragility and decadence of the rose as a central and narrative trope in our ever-shifting human history.
