Ross Rolshoven


Palamino Moon

Quirkiness is everywhere: "I remember getting stuck on the ferris wheel at the Mandan Carnival" conjures up the childhood fears of all ferris wheel riders, and testifies to Rolshoven's desire that the viewers bring into play their own memories of past pleasures and fears; humor and nostalgia shine in "Fish Lies," a whimsical assemblage of a fisherman's tall tales; "Captain Midnight's Secret Squadron" is a boy's delight: plastic planes under glass bring to the viewer dreams of the world of planes and adventure; "Travel Signs 1942" features emblems and stickers from many states and bygone eras.
