Artist Statement

In Roz Sommer’s paintings, expressive qualities of paint, particularly oil paint, connect the various bodies of work. Thick, juicy, textural color as well as dramatic light and shadows emphasize the intensity of the images. In some pieces the content is emotional, such as the paintings of the aftermath of disasters; physical, global catastrophes or personal interior struggles. In other work, the subject matter might be tranquil; still life paintings of foods and everyday objects, or scenes from nature, but Sommer’s paint application, energetic brushwork and gesture can still be troubling or ominous. Yet, emanating light brings hope and expectation into the darkness.
