DISTRICT Arts is pleased to present the works of hand cut paper artist Rosa Leff. For her exhibition, Leff has created a site specific installation she calls “Perfectly Misunderstandable.”
Rosa says, "'Perfectly Misunderstandable' is about how we perceive the people and places around us. It’s about both acknowledging and delighting in just how much we don’t know. When I cut paper I reduce a complex image, with all of its depth and shadow, down to just two solid colors. While the result is something akin to realism, I am interpreting the image for you. What I cannot do, is determine which experiences, languages, and histories you bring to viewing it. It is my hope that you find your perfect balance of familiar and bizarre somewhere in this eclectic collection of international images."
Rosa is best known for her obsession with powerlines and urban landscapes. Each cityscape is cut from a single sheet of paper using Excel Blades.
An opening reception with the artist will take place on Saturday, August 3, 2019 from 5 – 7pm. The exhibit will run from July 31 through September 1, during which works by the gallery’s 30 artists will remain on display.
This exhibition is free and open to the public. All are welcome. Visit our website for gallery hours.
