"It's Not Time For That" / Opening Reception

Aviary Gallery is pleased to present It’s Not Time For That, an exhibition of paintings by Rosie Ranauro at our location, 48 South St. Jamaica Plain, MA.

It's Not Time For That explores the endeavor to inhabit the body in the present moment. In these works, the figure wraps and unwraps as parts of the whole come together and release in a conversation with one another. The artist uses a personal language of symbols and repeated motifs to explore the tension and balance inherent in this process - the figures are joyful and sorrowful, protective and open, at rest and in movement. Ranauro often leverages humor as an access point for the viewer to engage and converse with the works.

This evolving body of work is a gentle call from the self, to the self, to say "Don't go away, stay here, you're here right now in your body. It's not time for that.”

Rosie Ranauro is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores how pain informs the self. Her works are created during exploratory cycles of performance and painting, making use of touch and play to access embodiment.

Ranauro holds a BFA in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and lives and works in Boston, MA. She has shown locally and internationally, most recently as an Artist in Residence at The Ou-telier in Duncan, British Colombia.
