Melbourne artist and original member of the revered Everfresh Studios, Rone, is set to showcase his latest exhibition in San Francisco. Entitled Darkest Before the Dawn and presented by White Walls gallery, the show will feature works on canvas, brick, and paper, varying in size from 3’x 2’ to large-scale works measuring over 6’x 6’. With the face of the same wide-eyed and sharp-featured woman starring in each portrait, Rone’s interpretations string together a narrative which offers a medley of patterns and textures, which embody the continuity of time passing, while the woman in the midst of it all personifies grace overcoming deterioration.
“We all have moments in our lives that make us who we are. These may be both tragedies and great moments that change the way we see the world. ‘Darkest Before the Dawn’ explores the concept of our darkest moments will eventually become our strengths, told through stylized portraits of a modern heroine.”
