The Endangered, Can Art Save Them?
An International Art Exhibition
(November 7 through January 8, 2021)
Roxana Rojas-Luzon is a contemporary artist born in Peru. She moved to the United States in 2002. She is fascinated by the art of collage, which she studies independently. Rojas-Luzon started exploring this technique in 2000. Her first solo show in Maryland-US was held in 2014. Besides Maryland, she has exhibited her work in Buenos Aires - Argentina, and the states of Virginia, Washington DC, and New York. Many of her pieces have being acquired by private collectors in Germany, Peru, and the United States.
My interest in art began in childhood with drawing and painting, but it was when I first became pregnant that I began to explore the art of collage. Toxic paint fumes could have harmed my unborn child. Glue and paper were on hand and provided the freedom to create light, motion and contrast in my pictures.
I use snippets of magazine paper, fabric, paper painted by my children or by myself, photographs, my own pencil drawings, or anything that enriches the texture and color of my images.
My inspiration comes especially from my family. I am the youngest of 11 siblings. Frequent fiestas (parties) taught me to dance and paint. Traveling as a journalist showed me the world. Raising two girls motivates me every day.
