Arts In My Community: Rosemary Wessel's Resonances
Through her paintings, Rosemary shows the energy she perceives coming from people. The paintings are not portraits in the traditional sense. She takes her subjects up a notch to the energetic level. Her training and experience doing energy work feeds into her visual manifestations. Rosemary uses models, including herself and makes molds of their face and/or body parts. From these casts she creates interesting portraits of emotions, feelings and energy. Sometimes I saw myself reflected in the emotion coming from her work, sometimes I saw other people I know reflected back to me. I can relate to what Rosemary is saying through her images, colors and textures about the energy and emotional landscape we as human beings are all a part of and all experience. I've never seen work like hers.
