Roe LiBretto

I was born into a family of empaths in Brooklyn, New York, and studied art at the Brooklyn Museum and the School of Visual Arts. My early career abstract works appeared in juried exhibits in several cities, including New York and Paris. During that time, I enjoyed commissions for kinetic installations from the New York City Cultural Council and the Massachusetts State Council on the Arts. My figurative works, like those shown at Ghostwolf Gallery, are exhibited internationally.

My works are reflections of images that appear before me, in the between-space of day. They are visual reminders of universal opportunities for inner growth. They manifest in grainy texture, like bad TV transmissions. They're as distorted as our century, as The Scream was in Munch's time, but with a grain of salt. American humorist Leo Rosten said, “Humor is the affectionate communication of insight.” I think the cosmic consciousness is hip to that.
