About the event

Rolph sent us this enigmatic communication:

Hello! So, I’ve been making all these little books full of drawings and writing. It’s been a lot of fun. I like having things that I can almost mass produce and I don’t have to be so precious about. I wanted you to have this one. I think you’ll know what it’s about. I hope you’re well. I miss you. I’m sorry I don’t keep in contact as much as I’d like. It’s just not how I am. Ironically, this letter will not get to you, but I’d like to pretend. Anyway, I’m sure you’re killing it over there, and I can’t wait to come visit some day. Stay well, and I’ll see you soon hopefully. -Rolph 

Rolphs work deals with forgetfulness, grief, fate, and things of little consequence. His interests lie small communities, story-telling, and classic Russian literature. His practice is process-based, and comes about as the product of much endurance and little deliberation.
