Works On Paper
Since Rozanne can remember, she has painted, drawn and followed her passion for the arts. After graduating UCLA and Art Center College of Design with distinction, Rozanne became owner of Arc & Line Communications. She also taught at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Rozanne’s artwork was selected into the permanent collection of the Library of Congress, won Best of Show in the Yosemite Renaissance XXIII exhibit, Best of Show in Politics (Not) as Usual, 1st place in the Pacific Prints exhibit, and 1st place in the Beyond Cancer exhibit by the Canary Foundation.
For twenty-five years as a visual artist, I created imagery that spoke of brand messaging and humanizing technology in the commercial world. The power of the visual message has always intrigued me and it inspires my fine artwork. Unlike computers, we are capable of seeing beyond the obvious, absorbing implicit meaning of ambiguity and symbolism. Visual communication is an intimate experience between creator, subject and viewer. We share the same wavelength for a few moments in time, transcending the differences among us.
I have an intangible connection with each subject I paint. They dictate my creative process and affect the choices I make. My artwork invites the viewer to start a conversation, to explore another identity, and to surrender personal truths. I am interested in exposing the imperfections and impermanence of contemporary life.
As I search for release in quiet natural spaces, I also capture moments away from daily limitations where nature gives us permission to heal.
