ArtHatch and Distinction Gallery are thrilled to announce a new solo exhibition of San Diego artist Scott Rohlfs entitled "In Vogue". This exhibit will showcase Rohlfs' most current paintings. As of February 2015, Scott Rohlfs' art and limited editions will be showcased in galleries around the world. This will be the world premier of Scott Rohlfs' new work under the representation of the renowned, international art agency, Whitefield Art Management. His art is best described as playful and seductive with a focus on the female figure. The Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2015 from 6-10pm with Live Music by Boogie Speak. Scott will be in attendance at the Opening Reception to meet, greet, and answer questions. Local artists within the ArtHatch building will have their studios open to the public as well. Complimentary Wine, and Stone Beer will be severed to guests.

A childhood compulsion to draw led Scott Rohlfs into the world of art, where his unique take on 21st century womanhood has given art collectors some of the most cutting-edge depictions of females on canvas in recent years. Born in Alaska but raised in the very contrasting landscapes of California, Scott sketched throughout his teens, feeling the natural pull of contemporary portraiture, which included supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. The latest fashion trends, as well as the human body and a sense of dynamic movement, were important in Scott's output even then. Today, Scott's work celebrates both the voluptuousness and the vulnerability of the human form, as well as its continuing odyssey across modes of representation, from our real-world existence right through to the virtual life, where the portrayal of femininity has evolved dramatically, taking in the idealized womanhood and a more global visual parlance (drawn from sources as diverse as news reportage, film noir and the graphic novel) as well as postmodern influences from multiple modes of being. A major thrill across Scott's work is that it immediately invites personal narrative dawn from public, or shared, consciousness and visual language. Scott's distinctively assured brush stroke and his innate understanding of contemporary notions of beauty and style have seen him tipped to become one of the great artists of our time. Scott produces a great amount of work and has sold hundreds of paintings throughout the US and abroad.

The exhibition will run from March 14 - April 4, 2015
