Exhibit Review - Herald Tribune Newspaper, July 22, 2006 by Marilyn D. Carpenter
"With the works of four artists on display in the Goff Gallery, Vilma Rohena is the shining star. Rohena is an artist who creates using her camera and the computer. Her works show that she, herself, is doing the thinking and creating rather than simply feeding a photo into the computer, clicking on an icon and letting the software do its magic. Her pieces would be more appropriately called artworks rather than photographs.
Rohena's works make use of multiple images, distortion, color changes and artistic additions. Her large piece, "Magically Delicious", makes use of all these elements. Upon close scrutiny, the image of a wok is apparent, but it is only the springboard forthe artist's imagination.
Some of her results are eerily strange, such as "I'm a Living Doll." It depicts a young girl in a dance costume holding a marionette of herself. Both the girl and the toy are in the same position. A floating geometric background design serves to emphasize the somewhat surreal subject."
