On-site installation and prints by Rosane Volchan O'Conor
April 23-May 28, 2011
Artist reception April 23, 6:30 pm
Kirk Hopper Fine Art opens spring with a (Big) Bang with Rosane Volchan O'Conor, a native Brazilian artist currently working in Houston after a stint in Belgium. Her monoprints and sculpture have been shown in cities as diverse as New York, Santa Fe and Rio de Janeiro, and her Dallas show will take place April 23 to May 28. The opening reception will be held at 6:30 pm on April 23 and the artist will be in attendance.
Volchan O'Conor refers to her work as "organic" and understands it as "polyphonic": each "melodic line has an autonomous function but also synthesizes perfectly within the whole." Volchan O'Conor works on micro and macro scales. She views her pieces as vacillating between intimate, cellular structures and massive forms, such as geographical formations, planets and galaxies.
This is work that has been described as organic and linear, large and detailed, harmonious and chaotic. Her pieces are often site-specific and present a challenging and unusual new addition to the Dallas art scene. Mr. Hopper stated, "Our opening began with Mac Whitney and we intend to maintain the same level of excitement and interest with each and every show. Volchan O'Conor is a terrific addition to our gallery and the work Dallas is showing at large." Volchan O'Conor's work is a hybrid of cellular and string theories, delivered via color, form and texture. Hopper added, "Think of this show as a Big Bang Theory for feeling people."
