We are excited to announce the opening of our latest exhibit, “Permutations” by Christine Reed. The show features a variety of work in print medium, with selected paintings on wood block and canvas. Christine studied art at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and holds a Masters degree in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley. She writes:
Through monotype prints and paintings, I recall experiential memories of landscape. Across the series, the interplay of field and frame, form and void, intention and ambiguity, structure and disarray is my focus. Visual juxtaposition becomes a mechanism to hold attention and create time for a sustained impression of visual space within the field of the work. Often an ordering framework – a grid or pattern – is interrupted, blurred, dissolved or refracted through the process of working. The trace of order in the underlying framework, still visible within the finished work, teases the mind’s tendency to search for perceptible structure – for repetition or rhythm – in the random array. By engaging the mind in perceptual play and disarming the intellectual focus of the viewer, my work aims to evoke the visceral response of that which initially inspired the work – the experience of space and light.
Please join us Thursday, September 22, for an opening reception and party. The event will be held from 5:30 – 8pm at One Union Street, San Francisco, CA, 94111.
