“No Should be As Friendly As Yes”

New Work by Karen Barbour  

January 10 - March 1, 2014

Opening Reception for the artist: 

Friday, January 10th, 6 to 8pm 

Please join us for “No Should Be As Friendly As Yes”, an intriguing exhibition of recent paintings by Bay Area artist, Karen Barbour. Karen is a prolific painter and a devoted keeper of sketchbooks filled with the thoughts, observations and drawings she utilizes for reference. Her process leads her to work on many pieces simultaneously, visiting them and revisiting them as they call to her. She is inspired by ongoing dreams and memories, both old and new, and the recollections play out on the paper and canvases like a narrative of her subconscious. The imagery is a surrealist mix of figures and abstractions, fluidly rendered with skillful combinations of gouache, ink, oil and collage. 

Karen received her MFA from the SFAI and worked for many years as a successful illustrator in NYC. Her work has been shown in galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Milan, and other cities. 

Show runs until March 1st, 2014

SEN by Lisa Solomon

“I like leaving long threads as a tribute to the process. They often make me think of memory, of the passage of time… They will never lay exactly the same way… I also gravitate toward the dimensionality of them. They instantly pull a drawing off of the wall and force something flat into space.” ~ Lisa Solomon. A great article by Monique Delaunay.

"SEN’ Exhibition in the process of being installed. 

Exhibition opens November 15th. 

Lisa’s art practice is an ongoing investigation of gender archetypes and hybridizations, as well as an examination into her own personal history. Through obsessive repetition and re-contextualization, she takes traditional feminine handicrafts and elevates them into the realm of fine art. For this exhibition, Lisa hones in on Japan’s historical and cultural fixation on the number 1000.”
