This exhibit, formed by Trinidad-born roycrosse and New Zealand transplant Ruth Pettus, combines drawings, paintings, sculpture, and installation. roycrosse's contribution, titled "War and Piece" is a series of several installations reflecting upon the contemporary political climate and foreign policy. Pettus provides wall art and a unique exhibit with shoes.
A pair of artists’ works poignantly complement each other in the current two-person show at Area 405. Conventions, which pairs the installation and drawings of roycrosse with the sculpture and paintings of Ruth Pettus, maps a curious terrain where the past and world-at-large present coexist in a beguiling, sometimes disarming personal moment. Imagery of decay or violence gets reconfigured, and the results are strangely calming.
