Abstract art on display in Fragmented Dreams
Submitted By Dorsi Diaz
Bay Area artist Rochelle EliasÕs exhibit, "Fragmented Dreams," is an accumulation of artwork completed over the past five years. Abstract portraiture and other abstract designs dominate the exhibit and are inspired by her fascination with the variety of dreams people bring to the fabric of America. Other abstracts included she alludes to simply as fragments of her creativity, existential snapshots of her frame of mind at a given time.
Elias grew up in the Bay Area, obtaining a degree in English Literature at UC Berkeley before spending a decade working at a variety of non-profits.
ÒI create because it is one way of exploring different mediums, unleashing my humanity in a world full of mystery and struggle, navigating the plights of so many in search of truth, in abstract or in reality. It is my hope that through my work, I can understand and be understood at some level.Ó
EliasÕs solo exhibition is on display now in the Ken Cook Room of the Sun Gallery through December 17. For more information, call (510) 581-4050 or visit www.SunGallery.org.
