Denise Rouleau’s imagined archeological vignettes created in clay and mixed media provoke questions about about  life, death, and human nature; the impact of generations, whose bones, relics, and vain dreams of immortality fill the earth under our feet. Denise’s sculpted mummies and remains are multi-layered in story and significance. She reveals an unsettling beauty in the macabre and addresses current political, environmental and social issues with strands of humor and irony.


Denise will hold guided tours of the show. Enjoy complimentary cookies while you learn about her process and what inspires her.
