This is a new series of paintings through which Roehl attempts to acquaint herself with other parts of the color wheel. Inspired by the Abstract Expressionists, Roehl’s work attempts to gain access to the inner workings of self as an individual, and on a larger scale, as a sentient being and member of larger communities, both local and global. Roehl’s intention is to learn another language, one that speaks outside of the intellect, and to recreate an experience of self-discovery through mark-making. Roehl explores the things that make us each unique, as well as those things we hold in common, and to somehow render with paint, and other mark-making devices, where and what the boundaries are.
