In 389 Valencia, the Jack Hanley Gallery will present The Elliptical Good-Kind., an exhibit of large-scale paintings on Dura-lar by San Francisco-based artist Michelle Blade.
Using Dura-lar as her primary
work surface, Blade paints in simultaneously gestural and restrained
styles, highlighting the extreme variances between her subjects. The
significant difference in size of the subjects, further distinguishes
their relationship. Bringing to mind a Romantic sublimity, Blade
accentuates the vastness of nature, while expressing a harmonious human
connection to it.
Michelle Blade was born in Los Angeles, CA and received an MFA from CCA. Her work has been exhibited at the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, Parklife and Electric Works in San Francisco, at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen and Space 1026 in Philadelphia.
