Rosemarie Chiarlone and Susan Weiner: Obstruction
This collaborative effort of visual artist Rosemarie Chiarlone and poet Susan Weiner, investigates women’s struggle for authenticity through a variety of formats, combining photography, poetry, and book art. The imagery is subtle, and the text is aggressive in places and restrained in others. The contrast emphasizes solitary moments, confines of time and space, and ambivalence. The work references the “glass ceiling,” imposed by societal constraints which influence female relational identity.
The Project Room exhibition series highlights superb emerging regional talent, illustrating South Floridaâ€™s evolution into an ever-expanding center for the creation and exhibition of contemporary art.
