GREENVILLE, SC.- Art & Light Gallery has opened “Cloud Games”, a solo exhibition of recent work by Art & Light founder, artist, and textile designer, Teresa Roche.

Inspired by travel and the beauty of the ever-changing landscape, the body of work included in “Cloud Games” explores the various modes of expression of the sky and the observation of clouds. Roche sees the work as a narrative of many skies, both remembered and imagined. Each piece in the series offers a particular psychic perspective and serves as an amalgamation of moments from travel and from memory. Roche’s sky landscapes connect past and present, combining memories of playing cloud games with her son in the past and now with her grandchildren.

A recent trip to Barcelona heightened the artist’s interest in observation of the clouds and sky. After flying into Barcelona and viewing clouds from different angles, Roche was taken by the layers of color. A visit to the Picasso Museum in Barcelona made her start to think about paintings as a record of a specific time and a place. The landscape that Picasso experienced very long ago remains very much the same today. It was in the way that Picasso painted skies that Roche became inspired. She says, “The chromatic treatment, luminosity, and loose brush strokes that he poured into his paintings will forever be ingrained in my memory - as well as the clear day skies, the menacing clouds that start to cover the blue sky. The sky and the clouds are so interesting to me - I'm enjoying an abstract approach to making work about clouds and I am finding that there is a lot of hidden meaning in a conversation with the sky.”
