Satiate your midsummer origami cravings at Brea Gallery's 'Paperworks Refolded'

Nikki Rosato’s dissected images use vintage road maps’ thoroughfares, roads and highways, whittling away at their land masses, until they create two people gazing into each other’s eyes (Couple: Boston, MA). It’s the kind of art that dazzles the mind, making you wonder how someone could have possibly come up with such a brilliant idea. I’m grateful she did, as her genius metaphors for connection, internal emotional maps and personal travel histories all connected deeply with me.
