Homeland, by Stacey Rozich
Opening Reception February 14th from 7-9pm. Please join us for this event, Stacey will be in attendance.
Artist Bio:Stacey Rozich is a Seattle-based artist and Illustrator. Old children's books, graphic novels and comic art are some of her biggest artistic influences; yet Slavic folk tales are the largest driving force behind this series. After studying Illustration at California College of Arts in San Francisco she has come back to her own homeland to continue producing and developing several series out of her studio in Pioneer Square.
Artist Statement about the series: In a nod to her Yugoslav background, "Homeland" works traditional costumes and folklore into a storybook world of warrior women and ghoulish monsters. While using a bold and simple palette for her folk pieces, a cartoon-like quality can be seen in the character design and execution. Striking patterns set off the delicate features in each portrait. Likewise with the creatures, texture and color are used to convey intimidation and reverence. Each piece stands alone in meticulous craft and all together as a vibrant tale waiting to be told.
