Rochester NH –
Maine native Rhonda Mann will be showcasing some of her recent abstractions at the Ben Franklin Gallery in Rochester, NH. There will be an opening reception opening on Sunday, November 6, from 2-4 .
Rhonda’s work features abstract figures and shapes with sinuous movement and connectivity. There are often complex raw textures incorporated within the forms and background, making the paintings appear to subtly hum with an internal energy. The forms sometimes are interconnected through oddly articulated linkages, creating an otherworldly feel. Sometimes the overall effect is rather like staring into the mind’s eye of an alien visitor. At other times her work is reminsicent of the surrealist paintings and frottages of Max Ernst, but abstracted into a thoroughly contemporary and individual statement.
Some of Rhonda’s work can be previewed on her blog “Mindscapes”, here.
