As a life-long lover and collector of art, I believe that art has a vital and important role in leading a life that is full of imagination and beauty.
To that end Rouge will be featuring a talented artist in the salon every month in hopes of exposing their work for all of us to benefit from.
This page will showcase the featured artist and examples of their work. You can enjoy their art here or come into the salon to see these works live!
This Months Featured Artist
Magic is at the heart of Katina Desmond's artwork. Her images are both mysterious and mystifying, revealing multiple dimensions beyond the surface. In their unique design and strong composition, the viewer can sense the influence that surrealists and abstract artists such as Man Ray, Max Ernst and Kandinsky have had on her work. Desmond shares their uncanny ability to enliven the inanimate and to create a feeling of enchantment in the ordinary.
Exploring transcendent themes of time, place and memory, Desmond's work reveals an inherent affinity for the complex urban and natural environments we inhabit.
Desmond works in several media including photography, painting, collage and photomontage.
