Exhibition by Lucille Nava at ROOTED Armory Café On View Until August 7, 2022

Form and Transform 3″ 2018 30×40 Acrylic on Canvas

Artist Statement by Lucille Nava:

“From the early 1970s through 2012, I made art despite full-time employment in another professional area. After that period, and up to the present, I have worked full-time in my studio.

I paint to convey the contradictions I see in daily life—emotional, psychological, environmental, political—color and line work together, yet they emerge as opposites of what I know about the immediacy of place.

The seductiveness of color is often in juxtaposition to the context of forms. The forms are sometimes projectiles, and at other times pieces that have broken off from their anchors. They may be grounded or float, but I always want them to defy logic, to provoke, to challenge the
world of rules and conformity.”

ROOTED Armory Café is open Tu – F 12pm – 7:30pm, and Sat 9am – 7:30pm. The Café is closed on Sundays and Mondays. Please check the event schedule for additional open hours outside of regular hours.
