Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that abstract artist Roxanne Fawcett has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 30 days.
Roxanne started her artistic career somewhere in West Africa, playing with wild dogs and avoiding poisonous snakes, whew, it was a lot of work! So her folks up and moved the family to Beverly Hills…movie stars, swimmin’ pools…no lie! Learning to surf in the California sun was way easier than avoiding wild beasties and harvesting coffee beans…
Well…a couple of encounters with Great Whites – near misses every one…until that last one…we won’t go there…and it was inland for Roxanne! She surmised, correctly, that painting marine life would be far less exhausting then actual interaction. So…she painted fish in the desert, then painted the desert in the mountains and then, of course, painted the mountains back at the Coast.
At least thats kind of how it was remembered. A few details might be mixed up, like the wild dogs, or the great whites, or even West Africa or Beverly Hills come to think of it… Okay…the reality is that Roxanne’s artistic journey started out with a generous and patient family, some crazy days at UCBerkeley and a wonderful West Coast life.
If asked where her art comes from, she would say it comes from a lot of creative genetics, a smattering of really good teachers, a couple of interesting encounters with the judicial system, a healthy fear of quicksand and a natural avoidance of the traditional career path.
In describing her art Roxanne would probably use such words as ‘colorful’, ‘textured’, ‘graphic’, ‘interpretive’, possibly ‘transitional’ or ‘natural’. She tends to work in series…acrylic on canvas or paper, mixed media occasionally, messy and loose. These are examples from some of her series…
Landscapes and Abstract Landscapes: landscapes, loose and free, inevitably lead to an exploration of abstract thinking. Acrylic on canvas and Mixed Media.
Painted Ponies: Horses present an amazing opportunity for the communication of power, motion, movement, and a fairy tale grace. Acrylic on Canvas.
Backyard Poppies: Florals can almost be an abstraction in and of themselves. Acrylic on Paper.
Do You Play Jackrabbit: Whimsy, calligraphic, colorful, expressive. Mixed Media on Canvas.
Circus Girls: Yes they are! What a life they must have led…the adventures, the heartbreak, the sisterhood…and Elle The Magnificent! … Acrylic on Paper.
