Opening Saturday, February 15th at Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco is “Home,” a solo exhibition of new work by Gay Outlaw. The artist will present a central motif: a round, concave shape reminiscent of forms used in her earlier perforated works, but on a magnified scale. Inspired by the contour of a favorite chair from her childhood, in combination with a sand painting she recently found in a garage sale, the sculptures explore positioning in space, and real vs. illusory depth, as well as pictorial language in general. In a career of over 20 years Gay Outlaw has examined relationships of sculpture and picture-making, especially photography. She interweaves formal abstraction with 2-d techniques of illusions, exploring traditions of artistic construction and production, both acknowledging traditional processes while subverting the expected result.
Opening Reception: Saturday February 15, 2014. 4-6pm.
“Home” will be on view through March 15, 2014.
