Please join us for “Nature and Form,” a showcase of recent works by artist Edmond Rochat. On display are portraits, interior scenes, and mural designs. The artist's interest in diverse subjects is evident, but on a deeper level the variety reveals his conviction that there is a profound mystery at the center of all things. This mystery is the true subject of his work. Rochat strives to demonstrate that through the crafted form, this sense of the enigmatic can be more fully known.
