Eileen Roscina

July 2024

Reaching towards infinity, mirror-based toys such as kaleidoscopes simultaneously expand our perceptions and elicit a sense of wonder. Using a combination of scanned, fresh, pressed, collaged and photographed flowers, Roscina uses reflective tools to deconstruct floral arrangements and reassemble them into new moving image forms.

Roscina is represented by Walker Fine Art and some of the visuals are rooted in a previously exhibited show.

Semblance is part of Summer Haze, the July 2024 program curated by Libby Garon.

Summer Haze intertwines organic matter with the built environment of Downtown Denver. These four contemporary digital artists: Karl Orion, Bryan Leister, Eileen Roscina and John Lake interweave cutting edge digital video work with nature's essence, enhancing Denver's industrious cityscape with spellbinding light. Through glittering fractals and temperature swings, Summer Haze leaves Downtown starry-eyed. Experience Denver at the heat of Summer with mesmerizing projections of augmented nature.

Eileen Roscina is an artist, experimental filmmaker and naturalist from Denver, Colorado. She holds an MFA in Art Practices from the University of Colorado, Boulder and a BFA from Emerson College in Boston, MA, and also trained at the School of Botanical Art and Illustration in Denver. Through biomimicry and the study of biophilia, her work examines human’s spiritual and social (dis)connection with nature, and seeks to raise questions about realizing a radically different metaphoric mapping of time, space and our place in the world.
