USA United States of America
Amy Rice and Jonathan Nelson are two of The Rosalux Collective’s newest members, but they are no strangers to the Twin Cities art community. Rice is a regular at Outsiders and Others as well as other Twin Cities’ galleries. She is known for her bold stencil creations, inspired as much by Pop Art and Japanese Printmaking as the Graffiti Art movement. Minneapolis Mayor R.T Rybak has cited Amy’s mural work as an example of how art has participated in the rebirth of Franklin Avenue.
Amy is also known locally for her advocacy role on the behalf of artists with mental illness and recently received a national award for her efforts. Jonathan Nelson is known primarily as an innovator in the realm of appropriation-based sound collage. His primary project, Escape Mechanism, is known worldwide for its creative re-use of fragments of previously recorded work. His nationally-syndicated radio program, Some Assembly Required (airing locally on 770 Radio K – Saturdays, 2-3PM), keeps him busy every week, but he’s found the time to create some new work for Now Showing, which will feature two sound collage installation pieces by Escape Mechanism, in addition to over a dozen works of visual collage and assemblage by the artist.
