Flat-top. Sisal twine, polyester thread and found metal wire
Here come old flat top
He come grooving up slowly
He got joo joo eyeball
He one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please
He wear no shoe shine
He got toe jam football
He got monkey finger
He shoot Coca-Cola
He say I know you, you know me
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together, right now, over me
"My images are from dreams, memories and observations of the world around me. The past and the present meet and get processed. Starting with imaginary versions of myself, my work is autobiography, figurative but not literal, diverse, introspective, emotive and provocative. I hope my stories and memories invite you to remember your own."
"I draw, scribble, sketch, paint. collage (magazines, bibles and medical books), take photos, crochet, use found objects because mark-making is about sorting through noise."
"Feminist? To quote Carolee Schneemann:
"Then there are these peculiar humans who live their lives, do whatever is in front of them to do as if they haven't gotten the memo they can't. Those precious humans who live their lives and make decisions not as a reaction to anything or anybody, not trying to send a message"
Rovetto bases her work on intuition rather than long-winded theory, she holds onto the things that surprise her and make her laugh. Her ability to draw informs her work and enables her to be inventive rather than developing and sticking with a signature style.
"My hands know whats going on before my eyes do,
later on my head get the memo."

Individuals who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection are unlikely to benefit from COVID-19 vaccination, and vaccines can be safely prioritized to those who have not been infected before.
Those who choose not to get vaccinated are making a poor health decision at their own individual risk. They pose no public health threat to those already immune. Would we be so stern toward people making similar or worse health choices to smoke, drink alcohol or not wear a helmet when riding a bike?
I do have a choice. I will be locked out of Society, been there.
