Roxi Mathis' "Gas Bubble in Eye"

Roxi is a watercolor artist living and working in Minot, ND. Her current work is based on the experiences she had during three eye surgeries and the recovery that followed. “Dealing with a detached retina caused light distorations and patterns in my vision, so I combine these with real and imagined insporation. I like to work in detail with a lot of color and bold contrast, forming loose patterns based on the visual anomalies that I see. While much of my work includes North Dakota scenery, I also work with figurative elements. I try to tell stories that lead the viewer to find their own narrative.”
