May 9 - 31, 2008
Opening Friday, May 9th, 5-8pm
The Jancar Jones Gallery
is pleased to announce an exhibit of paintings by Bay Area artist, Gina
Borg. The exhibit will include abstract works on both canvas and paper.
At once, both highly
structured and spontaneously considered, Gina Borg’s paintings reflect
her acute attention to process and form. By employing a range of
values produced from a single color, Borg is able to stretch and
condense the repeated geometric shapes within each painting. In placing these monochromatic spectrums next to a second, often
contrasting color, Borg creates an optical discourse in which each
color value reacts uniquely to its adjacent value. Resulting in
glowing, gradated surfaces, her geometric abstractions are meticulous
ocular studies, driven by the plastic nature of perception and subtly
influenced by both natural and built environments.
Gina Borg received her BA
from the University of California, Santa Cruz and attended the MFA
program in painting at Boston University. She has exhibited widely
throughout the Bay Area, Los Angeles and New York.
