August 2021- Featured Artist - Dawn Rossbach

My work often evolves out of conversations I have sparking ideas to express on canvas, mixed media or hand pulled prints. Sometimes, they are simple images that represent nothing more than the sheer enjoyment of an object or our environment, sometimes they are conveying a louder message that should be heard.


Polar Opposites exhibits the two separate bodies of work I created at the same time, but both take on completely different approaches as direct results of the pandemic. The Abstract Landsape Series was an exercise in finding a way to deal with a toxic environment that challenged me on a personal level  I found when I painted the landscapes the focus became the color, the contrast, and the brushstroke which kept me balanced and less anxious which ramped up the last year. Silent Screams became a cathartic process of finding a release for a collection of voices that held anxiety, frustration, or anger.  While sorting through old drawings,  that I deemed no longer necessary to keep I began to repurpose the paper and gessoed over them.  As I explored, I ended up washing portions of the drawings  to remove what I considered ugly and chaotic.  At that point I felt like it was too chaotic much like our current world and society, so I decided to try and organize and unify the work. Much like how we trying to get back to pre-pandemic days.  As I blocked off areas when working on the first one of the series, the emergance of the portrait came through with the square shape of the open mouth waiting to scream.  At that point I began to collect “screams” including my own, that were shared with me through the various means; mail, private messages, written on notebook paper left with me.  The words are what they wanted to scream out in either the workplace, home, or the community as a whole, but would or could not because they would risk their job, family or place in community.  It begs the question –  “Does freedom of speech really exist?”
