Paula Roland has a new exhibition, Navigating, currently running alongside the 9th Encaustic Invitational at Conrad Wilde Gallery in Tucson. Paula’s ethereal monotypes have their visual roots in her childhood on the Gulf of Mexico. There is something both loose, expansive and yet delicately structured in these prints. They seem to roll like the sea, and the way they are mounted off the walls heightens their sense of breath, in and out, like waves.
