BIO

Rana Rochat received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. She has exhibited throughout Canada and the United States and her work can be found in numerous public and private collections including Bureau of Cultural Affairs, GA, Hyatt Hotels, DC, Peninsula Shanghai Hotel, China, Saks Fifth Avenue, FL, Nordstrom and Cenovus Energy, Calgary, to name a few.

Working in the encaustic medium, Rana Rochat’s paintings aim to capture the delicate balance between order and chaos, reason and spontaneity. These earthy encaustic paintings result from this search and take place within the richly layered surfaces of vividly colored wax and transparent layers. The sense of depth is built into the encaustic paintings through the gradual addition of forms and textures.

Swirls, lines, and drips are formed within the luminous layers of each painting. While appearing natural and familiar, they are at the same time non-specific, refusing to adhere to just a single meaning for viewers. The freedom in the shapes allows viewers to get lost in thought and generate their own meaning from the artwork.

In her paintings, Rochat creates what she calls “an experience that is pre-verbal, promoting pictorial awareness prior to any explicit formatting of perceptual experiences into narratives” and refers to her own artwork as “visual poems”.
