We are proud to present new work from abstract light installation and mixed media artist Sophia Dixon Dillo, including three-dimensional Light Boxes made from LED lights, plexiglass, aluminum, and paper that has thousands of holes punctured with the tip of a sewing needle to create unique, abstract designs. Her series of abstract Pearlescent Drawings, patterned with pearlescent-silver ink on black paper, reflect natural light from their surfaces marked with repetitive hand-drawn designs. There are endless opportunities to see something new in Dixon Dillo’s work, which always interacts with, and strongly considers, the nature of light.
We are overjoyed to present new oil paintings from Ryan Reynolds’ Freeway and Sprawl series, which consider contemporary Bay Area daily life, from driving through a kaleidoscope of cars in traffic, to new homes dotting its ever-evolving landscape. With his bold canvases, Reynolds, who lives and works in the South Bay, is painting what he sees around him in a way that celebrates the signature “look” of the region while capturing the unique Northern California light.
Pop Art pioneer Jane Grimm’s highly impressive new body of original ceramic sculptures — both freestanding and wall pieces — astound. Created of clay by hand and then kiln-hardened using her low-fire technique, Grimm continues the explorations of her ongoing themes. Razz-Ma-Tazz takes root in geometry. In All That Jazz, flat shapes rise and fall in free-form/intuitive arrangements. Syncopation is also musically inspired, though amorphic in design and rooted in biology. Colors range from pure glossy and matte white to yellow and blue.
We are honored to premier oil paintings by artist Anne Subercaseaux, whose meditative, gleaming works realistically bridge urban with rural in the form of representational fragmented depictions of contemporary architecture, including city structures, roadways, and bridges as they intersect with natural shadow and light. There is an ethereal quality to these meditative and minimal images that celebrate the natural abstract beauty all around us.
