We are familiar with the most common form of expression: language. With the “Duologue” series of small paintings Roxanne became more interested in the way certain body movements and gestures serve as a form of non-verbal communication. Roxanne started by asking visitors to her studio if she could take a picture of them to be used for a small painting. With the answer “Yes” becomes the start of a silent duologue between the pairs. Whether conscious or unconscious their movements, postures, gestures, looks, silent signals, and decisions on how to pose seemed to express attitudes and personalities in their familiarity and relationship.. This is a section of what became over 100 acrylic paintings and video of the non-verbal language of pairs.
