Rosalyn Bodycomb: Cassandra
to 5 PM
1626-C Hi Line Drive , Dallas, TX
Start date: Saturday, January 12, 2013
End Date: Saturday, February 16, 2013
Rosalyn Bodycomb’s figurative paintings capture modern-day Greece—and, in many ways, a universal humanity—in all its vividness and complexity. The works, at once kinetic and peaceful, are full of light and water and life. But an undertow of sadness, loss and impending chaos tugs just below the surface. Or, in a work like the metaphorically apt Samothraki II, a broken chair lying amid a lush landscape, a sense of ruin is right there on the surface, the trammel of history already visible amid the timelessness of lived life. The paintings were inspired by Bodycomb’s 2008 visit to Greece. "My impression was of a beautiful ancient country with a troubled political past, an unsure economic present, and a disenfranchised population," she says. She titled the show Cassandra after the royal beauty whom the god Apollo cursed with the agonizing gift of prophecy that will never be believed.
