Artist Rosemary Marchetta has a multi-disciplinary approach to making art. She draws, paints, makes prints and collages, and takes photographs. Sometimes she combines multiple media in a single piece. “I use the tools or medium that seem to be right for whatever I want to get across,” Marchetta says. She uses collage both on paper and in Photoshop.
At the BankRI Galleries, Marchetta is exhibiting photographs – imagined landscapes, combining real locations with unusual juxtapositions.
For Marchetta the idea of place is more complex than a specific location. Palm trees may not grow in Rhode Island, but they do appear in her photographs of the National Grid power plant on Point Street. The state house is not surrounded by water in real life, but it arises Venice-like from the waters in her photographs. Constructing and deconstructing as she works, Marchetta is all about creating the reality she wants to see.
