Fort Worth Community Arts Center will present Rene Rocha: "Waves.” Adoption, separation, and connection have always factored heavily in Rocha’s artwork because he was adopted. Over the last decade, his artwork has focused on his separation from his biological family, and his connection with his adopted family. He uses the art elements, line and color, to illustrate these concepts. He ponders his identity, and often wonder who he would have become had his journey been different.

His current work explores his journey into fatherhood. The concept of the wave was conceived during his son Zachary’s birth. An erratic heartbeat due to an infection, reminded him of water. More specifically waves, because of their up and down nature. He began to think about water, and what it represents. Water is the basis of life. Water has the potential to nourish and to be destructive. He finds the wave to be a perfect symbol to represent his emotional response to this most important life event.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 28.
