Last months issue of Yen magazine brought to my attention the awesome work of Stacey Rozich. It reminds me a lot of Tara Marynowsky's pieces in that it's the product of a narrative being told, and also the fact that they both work with the beautiful medium of watercolour, but Rozich's is in more of a controlled manner. The works show tribal influences and boast gorgeous combinations of organic and geometric shapes and marks. The characters are adorned in brightly coloured, layered costumes that create a basis for the narratives being drawn. This informs Rozich's subject, which is folklore from around the world. Each image looks like the set of a play and as the viewer you manage to feel the movement and energy of the performance. Extremely impressive work!
