In two months Collage + Landscape = Collagescape will be on view at San Francisco’s Glama-Rama Salon and Gallery. The show runs from July 29 to September 28, 2014. The opening reception is on the evening of Friday, August 1 (7pm to 10 pm).
The show will have two parts:
On the main level, there will be an exhibit of my current series of collagescapes. With collagescapes, I begin with a painting on paper. I create proportional fields of different colors to represent a particular landscape. The painting is then cut up into small pieces for a collage where they are reconfigured into various patterns. The finished piece may appear abstract, but it is designed to retain the color palette of the place it represents. A preview of the work can be seen at tofuart.com
Collage Meets Landscape
On the upper level of Glama-Rama, I am curating a companion show of mixed media works, where the theme will be Collage meets Landscapes. The exhibit will include the works of 11 different artists from the Bay Area as well as elsewhere in the U.S. and overseas. The works of four of the participating artists have never been show in the Bay Area before and two of our artists are having their first showing in the U.S. Be sure to follow my art blog. Over the coming weeks there will be profiles of each of the participating artists.
