Ro2 Art is proud to present new works by artist Marilyn Waligore. Stop by our Downtown Pop-Up from 7-10 PM for the artist reception at 1508 Commerce, Dallas TX 75201..

Marilyn Waligore creates images using reclaimed aluminum forms to develop new sculptural structures in an absurd comment on the potential possibilities for the reuse of post-consumer waste. Her work in Post-Convenience forges a link between photography and sculpture and reflects on our societies complex relationship with consumption. The artist collects her aluminum objects during walks through her neighborhood, seeking materials with characteristics that resist manipulation, yet remain malleable. Waligore presents her images in a high-resolution format, often found in product photography and portray objects as something of value. Post-Convenience emphasizes an embrace of conservation, and compels a reconsideration of our daily habits and their global impact.

My work is about play.

By focusing on personal narratives and my experiences of growing up as a first-generation American, I touch on themes of nostalgia and th e in-between. I create as a way to make a space for myself. Here I am free to explore memories, now that I have the language to describe them. The work is manifested in paintings that combine recognizable objects and parts of the body, especially hands. I use hands to represent the ties I have in both of my cultures. At times, they are just snippets or combined recollections. I see them as a puzzle, where I am carefully attempting to line up each piece to make sense of the whole picture.
