APOTHEOSIS | Kelsey Rolling 

HP SATELLITE GALLERY | SEP. 3 – NOV. 2, 2020 | RECEPTION: N/A

The Holand Project Statiltle Gallery is thrilled to present, Apothesis by Kelsey Rolling.

“My work examines the representation of Black people and people of color throughout the African Diaspora, specifically focussing on Black America. I want to examine both the limiting aspects of the ways we have been portrayed in the spaces that we occupy, and where we are most widely seen (these primarily being entertainment spaces; musicians, artists, athletes). My style is intended to encompass the continued evolution of how we are seen and where voices are heard, through its use of mixed media and contrasting levels of rendering and completeness. I’m inspired by classic black portrait painters like Kehinde Wiley who shares the beauty and profound dignity of blackness, which needs to be seen more. As my work has progressed throughout the years it has intended more to evoke strong emotions through its use of bright color and surrealistic elements. Ultimately I choose to focus on what I do because of the feelings of both inherent connectedness I feel with people of color and the lack of or interchangeability of my identity through representation.”

 Apotheosis will be on view September 3 – November 2, 2020, in the HP Satellite Gallery located inside Cafe Capello at 248 W 1st St #250, Reno, NV. HP Satellite Gallery is open Mon-Sun, 7 AM – 5 PM.
