Visual arts: Portraits far from traditional in Brandt-Roberts Galleries exhibit

Nikki Rosato of Washington, D.C., uses road maps to create fascinating faces. In “Connections” and “Couple, Boston, Ma.,” her slightly elevated, cut-out maps placed against a white background form human faces — in the case of the latter, a man and woman looking at each other. Like the locations on maps, these humans are connected yet separate from one another.
