Artists point the way, like a visual signaler on a runway. I sometimes use humor to make a difficult story palatable.
When I am making marks on paper I am focused on noise, the process allows me to sort through that noise. My images range from memories of the past to todays news, action and reaction, where the past and present meet and are processed.
I am drawing, scribbling, sketching with ink, charcoal, smearing paint, gluing torn pages from magazines, bibles and medical books.
My photographs are studies of light and dark.
My work is autobiographical, figurative, but not literal, diverse, introspective, emotive and provocative. I hope my personal stories and memories invite you to remember your own.
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.
"If you cant have a conversation with someone, make them something." Cookies. Art. Something deliciously beautiful.
