"Sights and Sounds: Rhythms and Scales"

Kevin McEvoy, Juror

In the jazzy Brooklyn, New York City, Roxana Gheorghe is capturing the rhythm of the music. The sound of the trumpet is round, while a soft piano and subdued drums play in the background.

Ample notes whirl and circle, folding down into linear sounds. The trumpet raises sharp, breaks up the roundness, then it flows back into harmony and rhymes with the group. The drum stopped, and Roxana listens to the silence of music.

Since her interest in music and jazz, Roxana started to capture the “feel of jazz” in 2017. The project led Roxana to meet talented performers and got involved in one of the most significant American kinds of music, jazz. She found in jazz the syncopated rhythms and harmony that inspire her work.

Roxana Gheorghe is a Romanian-born, Queens New York-based visual artist seeing the American world through Eastern European eyes. She makes photographs that are inspired by New York City. The intersection of art and design, and the geometry of modern art and modern music fuel her creativity. Music is in her ears; New York City is in her eyes.

In 1991, Roxana Gheorghe began to photograph New York City. In 2010, Roxana started to practice and study Photography. She took art and photography classes at SVA, New York City (2013 - 2015); ICP, New York City (2015-2018); Pratt Institute, New York City (2016); and the MoMA (2014-2017).

Roxana has a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest, Romania, and an MBA degree in Marketing from Baruch College, CUNY.
