& JAMES ZAMORA
February 7 – March 8, 2013
Saturday, February 7, 7-10pm
Ro2 Art is pleased to present For Real, pairing two Texas-based contemporary realist painters, Sarah Atlee and James Zamora. Working from plate to palette, Atlee delights viewers with colorful and creative food and drink pairings, exquisitely painted on canvas using surrounding patterns and wild tablescapes. In contrast, James Zamora aims to portray the technical complexities of everyday life, working to reflect through painting, the characteristics of visual relationships recorded by our eyes during encounters with the material world — and the subconscious imprints these experiences bring.
