Coniunctio, is an exhibit of new works by Oregon artist Ila Rose this month at Rising Room Gallery (2222 NE Oregon St, Unit 212). Rose has created murals and album covers for many artists and is the artist who painted this year’s Oregon Country Fair poster.

Rose writes: “Coniunctio is the sudden realization of the union of opposites, much like the concept of Yin/Yang…The whole canvas of existence is made up of coexisting dualities, which vibrate to and fro endlessly along a spectrum between poles. To eliminate the opposite is to cut the whole in half and to deny the full nature of being.”
