Cloudy shades shift and slice in angular currents,
contrasting brushstrokes boiling at the heart of
Rozalyn LeCompte's visions.
These turbulent abstractions represent the chaos of life.
They are the center of most every piece.
Layering colors, lines, shapes
near these formless fields,
provides a daily medicinal salve for the artist.
A balancing practice,
mimicking her multi-faceted life as a
mother and full time entrepreneur .
she has created over one hundred designs
using upcycled drum cymbals for her accessory brand Secondline Jewels.
When the pandemic shut down live music,
she picked the paintbrush back up .
As a self-taught artist,
she exercises the power of surrendering to the present,
in an unending attempt to continuously uncover her style.
Each piece is unplanned.
A time capsule.
