Known for his enthusiasm for outsider art, Roche has been an outsider himself. He is keenly aware of division lines between the privileged and the disenfranchised, the “haves” and the “have-nots.” Although the world is fast becoming a global village, Roche celebrates a Southern heritage: his very specific sense of place is a homing beacon. Through “Glory Roads,” he displays maps of art, documenting many of his motorcycle rides throughout the country. Using mainly pencil on paper, he creates a visual recreation of roads and memories.
For more than 30 years, Tallahassee artist Kleinbard has explored through her work folk medicines, scientific advances, the environment and the unsettling role of humans in the balance of nature. In “Nature’s Corridors,” a series of meticulously rendered and richly colored low relief, collage constructions, surfaced with paint and pencil, the self-taught painter has turned her focus to a visual statement concerning the irreplaceable biological heritage of sensitive habitat and refuge lands. The individually painted pieces of paper, when assembled, pictorially form an idealized ecological breathing system, sometimes embodied into the spirit form of an animal.
