Fractured Landscapes & Joshua Trees
Artists Rose Gonella and Kris Holladay-Fregoso. Thursday, February 18 through Sunday, April 17
Rose Gonella began making collages in her early 20s, inspired by her aunt’s collage work. She creates her pieces using pictures clipped from calendars and magazines. Some are inspired by a story or song lyrics, others are color studies or simply constructed with a particular theme in mind.
After receiving her Master’s in Art for Assemblage at CSUN, Kris Holladay-Fregoso decided it was time to start working on a series of Joshua trees that had been on her mind for quite some time. Largely influenced by Expressionist Franz Marc, Kris appreciates his fantastic use of color. Joshua trees are amazing and a challenge to paint, but having fun with color is what brings her joy.
