For Dani Roach, painting is more than the art of representation, it is the art of storytelling. As poetry employs rhythm, Roach uses color and form to punctuate her compositions. The artist explains, “Many artists and writers include rituals in their studio practice. Over time and through numerous artist residencies I have developed my own habits. Poetry has been a studio companion of mine for years. Considering the parallels in poems and paintings serves as a great muse — and influenced the title of this show.”

 

“Trips to Scandinavia and Ireland provided a library of scenery that served as source material. However, reproducing those landscapes was not the primary goal. Rather, like poems and stories that contain far more than the words included, working on these paintings has reshaped my memories of those trips.”
