Join Galleri Urbane in Art Market San Francisco, find us in Booth 109. In the main booth, we will feature recent works from Marfa/Dallas artist Jason Willaford, Rachel Hellmann, California artist Gail Peter Borden and Art Art Institute of Chicago Alumni Dylan Cale Jones. Featuring the work of four diverse artists, Galleri Urbane’s booth invites viewers to consider craftsmanship and structural methods as a vehicle for conceptualizing contemporary art. The objects and sculpture by Dylan Cale Jones explore the standards of a job well done. Images associated with work and the working class are used as a tool to reference the psychologic effect these expectations have on an individual. Born into a family of carpenters, Rachel Hellmann’s work revolves around the love of tools and pride in working with her hands. Her shaped paintings stem from her interest in creating work that occupies space in a physical way. With a similar architectural interest, Gail Peter Borden explores how perception is affected by the interplay of geometry, light and color in his resin-cast paintings. The abstracted spaces maintain an independent form, but the motion of the painting stems from multi-panel installations. A colorful array of multidimensional bricolage created with sections of repurposed vinyl objects reflect Jason Willaford’s latest artistic evolution. The flat material is hand cut,quilted, sewn, painted and transformed into a rigid structure reminiscent of a mask. Behind this created facade, one’s physical reflection in the mirrored base alludes to a contemplative space that lies within. Beyond the standard expectation of craft, each artist creates work that is visually intriguing and conceptually rich.
