Diamond Sea (2017)
Diamond Sea is ROLLVNDO’s first solo exhibition, an exploration of the self and the many facets of the soul. ROLLVNDO invites the viewer to look inside the work to discover oneself through fleeting self-reflection. Miroir entices with your own apparition, as it captures and projects the many different versions of yourself. The mirrored surfaces embedded within the collages reflect and catch the layered and ripped images; your distorted profile becomes part of the work for the brief moment posing a question of vanity, self-absorption and the ideals of beauty.
Exhibition Run: 12 October – 12 November 2017
French artist Julia Fraile-Rollando is ROLLVNDO a mixed media artist living and practising in London. Taking inspiration from popular and contemporary culture, ROLLVNDO’s work evokes a sense of lyricism and raw beauty. By ripping images and mixed media from magazines, books and other found objects, ROLLVNDO explores the poetry and process of creating a new object from something pre-existing. Escaping from reality, both the artist and the viewer find themselves projected into ROLLVNDO’s works.
