Exhibit at the SF Bar Association
This afternoon my good friend Mary DeLave and I hung 13 of my paintings at the SF Bar Association at 301 Battery St. The venue is a large conference hall where lawyers attend lectures and classes offered by the continuing education division of the Bar. The paintings really enliven the space, which is well lit but otherwise sterile. They are predominantly abstracts, and feature my signature use of vivid colors and texture. One grouping of orange paintings, called Clown Quartet, is very bright indeed. These paintings are displayed near the speaker's podium, and Mary remarked that their hue is so bright that the audience will hardly notice the speaker! I, on the other hand, felt that they had more to fear from the after-image upon viewing the paintings, not unlike sunspots.
Mary is a gifted artist who shows with me in outdoor exhibits sponsored by the Artists Guild of San Francisco (http://www.artistsguildsf.com/) Her work can be found at her website: http://www.marydelave.com/. We joined the Guild at around the same time, and she has been a consistent fan of my work, as I am of hers. I can attest that she is a very patient person, but also very expedient in hanging a show. I tend to obsess over the details of how a painting looks in a space, while Mary counterbalances this tendency. She trusts her instincts about how to hang a painting, and does not let niggling details intrude. This involves both trust and confidence, which are important qualities for artists. Well done, Mary! Thanks!
