Ro2 Art will present Ray-Mel Cornelius: "Atmosphere." This body of work is influenced by the artist’s memories of growing up in rural Texas, as well as Precisionism, Symbolism, Surrealism, and Pop Art movements. The color palette is one of optimism. Cornelius begins with a field of purple with each work, and then brings light to build up the visual elements in his compositions. This creates a vibrating effect when paired against reds and oranges, and a deep richness to cool hues.

In these works, the majority of the canvas is dedicated to skyviews, where clouds, comets, fireflies, and the moon rule the domain. They are grounded by the tops of trees, roofs, or slender landscapes existing at the very extreme bottom edge of the compositions. Figures and buildings are dwarfed by the atmospheric expanses.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through October 9.
