He approaches his luminous oil paintings with unencumbered confidence, employing bold and gestural brush strokes buoyed by a dash of whimsy. His life long love of gardens is channeled into paint, translating his appreciation of nature onto the canvas. The paintings radiate with the timeless virtues of color, of light and the simple yet essential joy of a flower in bloom.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>On view will be a new suite of large works on canvas fresh from Rudi&rsquo;s studio in Berlin.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>For more information or images contact&nbsp;<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><a href="mailto:holly@fouladiprojects.com" rel="nofollow">holly@fouladiprojects.com</a></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Fouladi Projects&nbsp;</p> <p>1803 Market St. San Francisco, CA 94103</p> <p><a href="file://localhost/tel/415-621-2535" rel="nofollow">415-621-2535</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.fouladiprojects.com/" rel="nofollow">www.fouladiprojects.com</a></p> Sat, 19 Apr 2014 23:05:15 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Alexander Calder - Pace Menlo Park - April 17th - May 13th <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Following its recent announcement of plans to open a temporary space in Northern California, Pace is honored to present <em><strong>Alexander Calder: The Art of Invention</strong></em>, Pace Menlo Park&rsquo;s inaugural exhibition, from April 17 to May 13, 2014. From monumental stabiles, bronzes, standing and hanging mobiles to colorful gouaches and wearable jewelry, this exhibition explores Calder&rsquo;s visionary approach to art-making and his innate ability to see potential in a variety of unlikely art materials. The Art of Invention marks five years since Calder was last exhibited in the Bay area, at the San Jose Museum of Art.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Renowned for his invention of the mobile, a kinetic construction of suspended abstract elements that describe individual movements in changing harmony, Calder also devoted himself to making outdoor sculpture on a grand scale from bolted steel plate, which stand in public plazas in cities throughout the world. Calder&rsquo;s wide body of work includes paintings, drawings, prints, book illustrations, jewelry, tapestries, and costumes and mobile decor for ballets and theatrical productions.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>The Art of Invention</em> presents over twenty-five works from six decades. Using wire, wood, glass, sheet metal, bronze and found objects, Calder introduced biomorphic forms and Surrealist imagery into abstract sculpture. In Bird (c. 1955), a small 15-inch object, Calder twisted wire and cut tin cans to create the impression of feathers, tail and beak.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Masterworks including the standing mobile, Aspen (1948), exhibited in the Whitney Museum&rsquo;s 1976 show 200 Years of American Sculpture and the bright red, 12-foot long Brontosaurus (1970) made from cut and painted sheet metal, exhibited last year at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire, will be on view.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Also on view are maquettes used to develop Calder&rsquo;s large-scale works, including Cafritz Fountain [maquette] (1966), a sheet metal and paint study for the iconic Gwenfritz (1968) currently at the Smithsonian&rsquo;s National Museum of America History.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The exhibition will also include jewelry, such as a brooch, bracelet and necklace Calder made from colored glass and brass, steel and silver wire, as well as a selection of gouaches, showing the interplay of line, shape and iconic color in Calder&rsquo;s work.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>The Art of Invention</em> continues Pace&rsquo;s four-decade relationship with the Calder Estate, during which the gallery has presented a dozen exhibitions of the artist&rsquo;s work.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Alexander Calder</strong> (1898&ndash;1976) is one of the most acclaimed and influential sculptors of the 20th century. Born in 1898 in Pennsylvania to a family of sculptors, Calder began crafting toys and objects from the materials and tools available to&nbsp;</span><span style="font-size: small;">him at an early age. In 1919, he graduated with an engineering degree from Stevens Institute of Technology and moved to New York to enroll at the Art Students League. In 1926 he travelled to Paris, where he would periodically live and work until 1933, and where he created his fabled Cirque Calder (1926&ndash;31). After visiting Piet Mondrian&rsquo;s studio in 1930, Calder began experimenting with abstract constructions, exhibiting his first non-objective works in 1931.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Alexander Calder has been the subject of dozens of exhibitions at museums worldwide, including retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art (1943), Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1964), Whitney Museum of American Art (1976), and National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. (1998), as well as major exhibitions at museums including Museo Guggenheim Bilbao; The Art Institute of Chicago; Centre Pompidou, Mus&eacute;e national d&rsquo;Art Moderne, Paris; the Detroit Institute of Arts; Fondation Beyeler, Riehen,&nbsp;Switzerland; Kunsthalle Basel; The Menil Collection, Houston; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C.; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. In 2011 his monumental standing mobile Horizontal (1974) was permanently installed in front of the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Calder&rsquo;s work is in the collection of nearly every major public art institution in the United States and abroad.</span></p> Sat, 19 Apr 2014 09:29:52 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list - Berkeley Art Center - June 28th - August 10th Sat, 19 Apr 2014 09:15:12 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Andrea Fraser - Nathan Cummings Art Building - May 8th 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #8f0e49; font-family: 'Telugu MN'; font-size: small;"><strong>Art, Equity, and Inequity:</strong></span></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Optima; font-size: small;">a talk by performance artist&nbsp;<strong>ANDREA FRASER</strong></span></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Optima; font-size: small;">&nbsp;</span></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Optima; font-size: small;">with response by Berkeley professor</span></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong><span style="font-family: Optima;">SHANNON JACKSON</span></strong></span></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Optima; font-size: small;">&nbsp;</span></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #a2225c; font-family: Optima; font-size: small;"><strong>Thursday, May 8th at 5:30PM</strong></span></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: #a2225c; font-family: Optima; font-size: small;"><strong>Cummings Art Building, Annenberg Auditorium</strong></span></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: small;">&nbsp;</span></div> <div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Optima; font-size: small;"><strong>wine reception in Cummings Lobby to follow!</strong></span></div> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Noted performance&nbsp;artist&nbsp;<strong><span style="color: #8f0e49;">Andrea Fraser</span></strong>&nbsp;speaks about her work as an ongoing investigation of what we want from art. &nbsp;Fraser explores the motivations that drive artists, collectors, art dealers, and corporate sponsors: from the pursuit of prestige to financial investment, from sexual fantasy to personal fulfillment. &nbsp;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Goldman Professor of Rhetoric and of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies at UC Berkeley,&nbsp;</span><strong style="font-size: small;"><span style="color: #8f0e49;">Shannon Jackson</span></strong><span style="font-size: small;">, will join Fraser in conversation.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong><span style="color: #8f0e49;">Andrea Fraser</span></strong>&nbsp;is a world-renowned performance artist who&nbsp;has performed nationally and internationally at major museums in Los Angeles, New York, London and Vienna.
