I lingered in front of Rex Ray’s Prednisporata (2013). Polychromatic shapes shimmer against a black sky. A firework-like flower bursts above that skyline of plump perfume bottles. Simultaneously hard-edged and fluid, the layers of colorful forms luminesce from the canvas, awaiting adoration, unflinching. I’m mesmerized more by the detail than the subject.

Drawing inspiration from his acknowledged influences--the Arts and Crafts Movement, Abstract Expressionism, organic and hard-edged abstraction, pattern and textile design, and Op Art--Ray combines these formalist concepts with decorators' tips gleaned from lowbrow publications and sources of popular culture. His work is widely exhibited at museums, including SFMOMA, San Jose Museum of Modern Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA, and recently at the Museum of Contemp... [more]

Just down the street from its original location at 14th and Guerrero, the Kiki Gallery--by all accounts a tiny, interdisciplinary space--has been resurrected by artist Colter Jacobsen and writer Kevin Killian at Ratio 3. Comprised almost entirely of works shown at Kiki, during its short yet fervent 18 month run, the exhibit chronicles Kiki owner, Rick Jacobsen’s vision and devotion to the arts in San Francisco.
