About

Anette Roqueta has a high EQ, prefers to be called Rocket, and is an artist living and working in New York City. Born and raised in the county Dade, she returns to Miami, FL as it is an impetus for her work. Growing up in the theater her creative roots lie in performance, lighting, and the narrative. Roqueta takes the actor's approach to research and drive her work. A humorist and guitarist, she tries new things for catharsis. These interdisciplinary practices often run parallel to relay ideas to one another. Her framework is heavily influenced by the innate voyeurism of photography, the spectrum of emotional perspectives, and her own need to disrupt the cleanliness of the frame. Rocket has a BFA from Pratt Institute in Photography.
