San Antonio artist, Rhonda Kuhlman, uses symbols of nature – birds and bunnies, flowers and hearts, and intersperses them within the repetitious patterns of Victorian wallpaper to create a delicate balance between what is presented and what is not. At first glance, her drawings seem decorative, however on closer examination one finds that the nuances of technique or artistic prowess create a balance and assist her in the creation of a mysteriously tranquil setting – without depth of field or foreshadowing. Her symbols or "playmates," as she likes to call them, weave in and out of the intricate patterns in an attempt to negotiate space, time, perhaps existence itself. A bird can fly away at any second; dandelions only last in the stillness. Then, poof, one suddenly wonders if it’s all been but a dream.

As the month continues Rhonda will slowly add sculptural elements to create a physical and conceptual dialogue between all the pieces.

For the closing reception, July 28th, the artist will unveil the exhibition in its entirety complete with an installed, mirrored, magic beanstalk in the center of the room. Stop by just for fun and to see what’s up. The gallery will becomes less of a gallery space and more of a reflection on itself, and those who enter the space. Saturday, July 28th, you won’t be looking at the drawings anymore – it will be the mirrored illusion of the drawings reflected upon you. What will you see then?
