ARTIST STATEMENT:

In the pain, there is pleasure. I enjoy looking past the obvious and focusing more on what isn’t easy to show: the different journeys of mental anguish. Each piece has a different meaning, but they all come from one place within me that is trying to heal. Most of us can attest to facing some kind of burden or dilemma where the knots holding our sanity together come undone. I believe a lot of my pieces are examples of those knots being tossed to the side for the hell of it. Letting my stress and problems come out through my paintings. Electrifying colors, gaunt elements, and melodic textures. I invite you to get lost in this maze I call my mind..

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:

I’m Roxi Belieo. A studio administrator by day and an experimental artist by night. Growing up, I was always surrounded by various forms of art. I gravitated toward music and poetry, though, since they’d been forms of peace for me. However, art was an outlet that I’d often turn to when things got rough. I knew that when I had paper and a pencil, I controlled my life. But eventually, I stopped painting and focused more on where life was taking me. On my journey, I dealt with depression, grief over losing my father, isolation, and suicidal ideations, which only got worse once 2020 rolled in. I was lost and felt like I wasn’t doing anything that truly brought me happiness. While trying to figure out who I was, going to college, and dealing with the pandemic, I got that desire to make something positive out of the negative. Life’s problems and stresses feed my inspiration to paint. I picked up my brushes, bought some canvases, and started ranting. Making abstract paintings allowed me to be free of rules, societal pressure, and my own mind. Each time I get to make something unique, I feel like I am escaping from the pain and taking control of my life again. With “Mini Fragments” being my very first gallery, I am extremely grateful and hope my pieces convey a message of finding a peaceful and creative way through the madness of life.

About the branch

Considered to be one of the finest Carnegie Libraries in the West, this 8,900 square foot library has two levels. Since its opening in 1918, it has been an important part of city services to Westside residents. The Chapman Branch was completely renovated, including an updated HVAC, following the collapse of the roof during 1993. A major remodel of the basement level meeting space in 2002 resulted in a much improved children's area and expanded service and collection space for adults on the ground level. A small meeting room is available for public use, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library. Street parking is available to the south of the building, and an external book drop is located on the east side of the building for returning library materials after hours.
