ROCKELMANN& is pleased to invite you to ‘Complex Relationships’, an exhibition of the abstract relationship between the works of Jens Heller and Megan Stroech.
‘Together I feel that Jens Heller’s work and my own make for an interesting dialogue on multiple levels. Heller’s paintings incorporate highly rendered visual texture, using sheen and reflective surfaces, allowing the viewer moments of pleasure and intrigue. Concurrently, in my work there is often a play between visual and actual texture where manipulating each material becomes very important. In each of our works, shifts in scale can serve as a point of departure for the viewer, providing clues for a larger narrative. Odd pairings often produce a sense of humor or absurdity; Heller’s with the use of toy characters and smiley face motifs and mine with collaging pool floats and brightly colored carpet. While our work is inherently different, Heller and I utilize many of the same visual strategies and elements of play, creating seemingly simple, but ultimately complex relationships for the viewer to investigate.’
Megan Stroech, 2014
