mixed media drawings and sculpture
January 9 - February 10, 2011
Rosemary Luckett juxtaposes sculpture and mixed media drawings in her solo show "Altered Terrain" a lively interplay between real and surreal expression. Continuing with themes from recent “This Land, Our Land,” collage drawings, she pairs the unexpected: nooses with mega-coal-mining equipment, forks with purses, and Christmas lights with asthma inhalers. Her works are metaphors for American culture and commerce. Each piece is built around a single real or symbolic object or group of items that seem unrelated to each other. The fun for her is in trying out unusual combinations of forms and solving the mysteries of the links between them. Finely honed technique and a strong concern for the environment pair up with a personality characterized by a questioning bent and a sense of humor to form these stories of the American landscape and our consumption of it.
Luckett, who teaches at the Art League School in Alexandria, has over 30 years of studio experience in painting, collage, and sculpting. She has exhibited in the Woman Made Gallery (Chicago, IL), Hoyt Institute of Art (New Castle, PA), National Museum of Women in the Arts and Catholic University in Washington, DC, Delaplaine Art Center and Tevis Gallery in MD, Grounds For Sculpture (NJ), Visions Gallery (Albany, NY), several university galleries, and numerous other venues around the country. She is represented by Touchstone Gallery in Washington, DC.
