About The Exhibit

Exhibited throughout the United States and internationally, Rossitza Todorova makes a return to the Reno area with a show titled “Intersections” at the Sierra Arts Gallery in downtown Reno. This exhibition will run from August 6, 2013 through September 6, 2013 with a free artists reception on Thursday, August 8 from 5-7pm sponsored by Wild River Grille.

“Driving is the main inspiration for my artwork. I’m interested in the space between destinations and the experience of navigating highway systems. My intent is to capture the visceral sense of movement while in transit. In my mixed media drawings I present the complexity of infrastructure as seen from the road. I attain a sense of motion within each piece by layering lithography, graphite, colored pencils and gouache on paper. To construct the experience of travel, I reference physical locations, manmade structures and looping paths, and intermix them with psychological and emotional journeys. Each piece in the exhibition has visual intersections that can be navigated in multiple ways. I invite the viewer to traverse each composition’s many paths, on their own personal journey.” – Rossitza Todorova
