The artists in the upcoming c2c/wc show, “in this place” , document their personal position in a landscape while creating situations that can experientially teleport a viewer into that space as well. By addressing fundamental apects of how we experience a local environment, such as angle, color, proportions, and the depiction of content, they indicate not only their physical experience of the represented space, but also how they are engaging emotionally and intellectually with their surroundings at that moment as well. This is true whether the work exhibited is a more traditional take on landscape, such as that from Diane Olivier or Kerry Law, or a more conceptual rendition, such as work by Andrew Prayzner or Eillish Cullen. This exhibition also includes artists Robert Minervini, Erik Parra, Chris Ballentyne and Karen Schifano who utilize an approach from a middle ground between these two extremes of practice, which effectively ties the work featured in the exhibition together into a singular comment on the nature of a material existance.
The exhibition, in conjunction with project 9 in the main space, will open with a reception on Saturday, February 6 from 6-9pm. It will run through March 6 with gallery hours on Sundays from 12-5pm. c2c project space is at 1695 18th Street in San Francisco (cross streets are Carolina and Arkansas).
