      Rockland artist Jimmy Marseille shines the light on the love and intimacy black people have for each other in his exhibit Love & Intimacy. From a social concern, the artist feels that black people are often not seen as beautiful or are portrayed as being angry or violent, especially black males. Much like artists/activists Gordon Parks or Charles White, Marseille focuses his work on the soul beauty of a race, black as beautiful. By showcasing the beauty and tenderness of black love, he hopes to open new perceptions from the grotesque stereotypes that still affront us in books, motion pictures, newspapers and social media today.

      Jimmy Marseille is an artist, photographer/filmmaker in New York. He's been photographing for the last 6 years, showcasing the beauty and the madness that is life. For the past 4 years, with the Trilogy project, he’s been able to tell stories with photography and film in a unique way that grabs viewers’ attention instantly and makes you curious for more. He uses color and the absence of color to further document the world around him with a twisted sense of optimism, with an element of mystery that pulls your heartstrings. His choice of visual style calls attention to what others might overlook. He uses details in a way that makes you want to analyze and question his work the more you look at it.

      We invite you to join us for Love & Intimacy. Free to the general public, the gallery is open by appointment only. There will be a limit on visitors in the space at all times, in alignment with current social distancing protocols. Visitors are required to wear masks upon entering RoCA and while in the gallery.
