Ursula Roma | The Masterworks of Ursula Roma: Heroes + Villains
Opening: October 6th, 6:00-9:00 PM (Will run through October 29th)
"I have been making found-object constructions for over 25 years. My appreciation for the elegant beauty of common objects inspires me to create art from discarded or broken items. This work is a bit of nostalgia mixed with a practical blending of natural elements using ferrous and non-ferrous metals with wood. Composed of diverse pieces, my constructions combine an array of unrelated items into a unified work. The shape of the object helps determine its fate as it guides me in creating its ultimate destiny.
This series is a combination of figurative and abstract constructions – some with stories, many with scars." -Ursula Roma
