Godeleine de Rosamel: LIFE:STILL
2525 MIchigan Ave., B-2, Santa Monica, CA 90404
Jun 18, 4 PM - 6 PM — ends Jul 30, 2022
Godeleine de Rosamel’s first solo exhibition at ROSEGALLERY, LIFE:STILL, highlights the complex role of her forested scenic designs. Bringing her backdrops into the foreground, the exhibition considers the paradoxical symbolism of trees as both a source of life and forests as a space shrouded in danger and secrecy. A special installation in the neighboring gallery positions de Rosamel’s trees in conversation with tree-themed artworks by Manuel Alvarez Bravo, John Chiara, Bruce Davidson, Elger Esser, Masahisa Fukase, Dorothea Lange, Barry Salzman, and Graciela Iturbide.
