LETTERS FROM RO
Letters From Ro is an ode to the subtleties of care and friendship, through paintings of letters sent between myself and German artist Rosanna Maravilla. Meeting during an international exchange in 2011, these letters served as a physical continuation of a long distance friendship that was founded in the mutual appreciation of art making. Ordered illogically, and exhibited en masse, the painted reproductions of Rosanna’s written musings, poems, photographs, collages, catalogues, objects and handmade books constitute a sensitive portrait of the contemporary subject.
