In order to make sense of the world, people are naturally driven to look for repeating patterns in the events, structures and behaviors around us. Perhaps artists are particularly tuned in to recognize and translate those patterns into visual form. Both Roscoe and Roe seek to learn about the world and its perplexing patterns by photographing it.
Areca Roe is presenting her series Housebroken, photographs of unusual pets in their domestic environments. The images explore why and how people are drawn to create a relationship and share a home with creatures like snakes, bearded dragons, potbellied pigs and parrots.
Bob Roscoe’s involvement in designing re-uses for older buildings provides a close up view of certain configurations of materials and shapes in the built environment, often within aging metropolises containing structures and fragments of landscapes in disintegration. He intends to reveal to us how certain fragments and glimpses possess aesthetic qualities in their own right.
