Alan Avery Art Company, an Atlanta art gallery, presents an amazing new exhibit featuring new artworks by renowned artist Rana Rochat.  artGuide Magazine is pleased to present a little snippet of Rochat's latest body of work.


Rana Rochat’s latest body of work furthers her pursuit of evocative, fluid mark-marking in the encaustic medium.  Her paintings are not bound by material choice, however, as the artist continues to push her visual vocabulary with richly modeled surface textures in delightful contrast to sprawling arrays of drips and lyrical lines.

In the words of the artist: “The forms and marks are natural and seemingly familiar, yet they are nonspecific, not easy to label.  I intend for them to be fluid, without fixed meanings.  Within an environment of deep light and color, my goal is to create an experience that is preverbal, promoting pictorial awareness prior to any explicit formatting of perceptual experiences into narratives.  I like to think of my paintings as visual poems.”

Rochat’s work can be found in collections world-wide, including: Alston & Bird, Atlanta; the Dubai Consulate; Pacific Peninsula Group, San Francisco, CA; Saks Fifth Avenue, Miami, FL.
