Ocean Art Gallery, Joni Mitchell inspiration, and RoAnn Elias: the perfect art show! One of our newest and freshest artists is RoAnn Elias, from St. Augustine. Known for creative use of color, she loves to experiment with how paints react to a variety of textures and techniques. She then combines the experimental with her chosen subjects to encourage the dichotomy between them, thereby creating her signature style. This is a further example of the growth of Ocean Art Gallery as we pursue the new and different, seeking excitement as we travel new frontiers.
Inspired by the captivating essence of circles and time, RoAnn emphasizes the shared emotions of joy and spiritualism, speaking to the ideas of birth and rebirth through her newest collection. As quoted by Joni Mitchell, “We are captive on the carousel of time (a circle). We can’t return we can only look behind from where we came, and go round and round and round in the circle game.”
