We just got the great news that our extraordinary exhibition, Eastern Poesia, will travel in March to the Zhu Naisheng Research Center in Beijing, China and be on display for two months. In conjunction, we will be hosted by the American Embassy in Beijing for a small exhibition of works from the Eastern Poesia show for a cross-cultural discussion panel concentrated around Monique's paintings and their role within the context of contemporary art.
The Curatorial Department
This far "eastern" inspired exhibition, Eastern Poesia by native Delawarean Monique Rollins, is featured in the Carole Bieber and Marc Ham Gallery. Monique Rollins' abstract paintings and collages take on an expressive aesthetic appealing to memory, unconscious, and mood, reflecting her extensive experiences from traveling abroad. Every gesture, color, line, and biomorphic form predicts the artist's interest in human emotion.
Monique Rollins received her BFA from Syracuse University and her MFA from The Pratt Institute. Her work has been selected for numerous solo exhibitions across the globe, and can be found in public and private collections across the eastern seaboard and abroad. Rollins' exhibitions include Metroquadro Gallery in Rivoli, Italy, Emerge Art Fair in Washington DC, Art Basel Miami Context, Andre Zarre Gallery in New York City, the Beijing American Center in Beijing, the National Museum of Taras Shevchenko in Kiev, Ukraine, and a solo show at Art Central, Hong Kong. Her works can also be viewed at numerous sites throughout the city of Wilmington, Delaware.
