FAITH LA ROCQUE: chisel to carve light thoughts

Faith La Rocque,

September 13 - October 11, 2014

Opening reception: September 13

For her first solo show at De Luca Fine Art, Faith La Rocque presents a collection of sculptural works informed by the subject of alternative health therapies. For the past 7 years, La Rocque has explored the interplay of belief, ritual and consumerism involved in the healing process. The works at DLFA reflect her interest in the body, emotions and psychological states. La Rocque’s relationship to materials is key to her practice, and for chisel to carve light thoughts she debuts work using obsidian, marble and electronic components. Each piece is illustrative, and lends itself to a theme of coping with both the process and the possible.
