In his newest body of work, Robert Sagerman explores swirling fields of monochromatic color created through the methodical and meditative application of daubs of oil paint.&nbsp; Inspired by Michelangelo &rsquo;s <em>Separation of Light from Darkness</em> and built of layers of applied paint, the resulting works seduce the viewer through their sumptuous tones and visual movement.&nbsp; The exhibition will be on view through July 2, 2016.</p> <p>Robert Sagerman&rsquo;s artistic process is a calculated action in which he counts every stroke of paint used, the total number providing the title of each work, such as <em>15,837</em>. &nbsp;For Sagerman, the methodical application of counted strokes of paint is a meditation.&nbsp; In this series of paintings, Sagerman was inspired both visually and intellectually by Michelangelo&rsquo;s <em>Separation of Light from Darkness</em> from the Sistine Chapel ceiling.&nbsp; The theme of Michelangelo&rsquo;s subject can be understood as &ldquo;nothing other than the first manifestation of dichotomies or differentiation,&rdquo; which Sagerman found resonated with his longtime focus on eliciting &ldquo;an intense materiality out of its opposite, the uniform emptiness of the field&rdquo; of color.&nbsp; In translating this into paint, Sagerman drew on the billowing clouds and fabric of Michelangelo&rsquo;s masterpiece to create the swirling patterns of his compositions.&nbsp;</p> <p>In these latest works, Robert Sagerman continues his process-oriented field painting, with the recent development of a reduction in color palette to uniform tones.&nbsp; In previous exhibitions, Sagerman variously used static color combinations or gradations of color to create his compositions.&nbsp; The monochromatic tones in this body of work allow the implied movement of his dynamic strokes to become the visual focus of these richly textured surfaces.&nbsp;</p> <p>Born in Bayside, New York in 1966, Robert Sagerman received his MFA in Painting and MA in Art History from the Pratt Institute in 1998; his MA in Religious Studies in 2000 from New York University; and his PhD in Hebrew and Judaic Studies from New York University in 2008. &nbsp;He is a respected scholar in early Jewish mysticism.&nbsp; Sagerman has participated in numerous exhibitions in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Rome, and Munich. This is his fifth exhibition at Brian Gross Fine Art.</p> <p>For more information or visuals, please contact: Greg Flood, Assistant Director, at (415) 788-1050 or <a href="mailto:gallery@briangrossfineart.com" rel="nofollow">gallery@briangrossfineart.com</a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Brian Gross Fine Art</strong></p> <p>248 Utah Street</p> <p>San Francisco, CA 94103</p> <p>(415) 788-1050</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 11-6 pm</p> <p>gallery@briangrossfineart.com</p> <p>www.briangrossfineart.com</p> Thu, 05 May 2016 00:34:48 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Gail Wight - Cantor Arts Center - May 5th 5:15 PM - 7:00 PM <p>Gail Wight, Associate Professor of Art Practice in Stanford's Department of Art &amp; Art History, discusses the role of process in her work.

An interdisciplinary team of scientists, Egyptologists, physicians, and museum curators and conservators has learned more about how these embalmed individuals lived, died, and were prepared for eternity.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Rebecca Fahrig and Kerstin M&uuml;ller of Stanford University Medical School&rsquo;s department of radiology have conducted high-resolution, three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) scans of the mummies, revealing long-held secrets. The resulting data have been studied by Jonathan Elias of the Akhmim Mummy Studies Consortium, who offered much of the interpretation seen in the exhibition.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">One of the mummies investigated is that of Irethorrou, a priest from an important family living in Akhmim in middle Egypt about 2,600 years ago. <em>The Future of the Past</em> includes information that has been gleaned about Irethorrou&rsquo;s lifestyle, the society in which he lived, his religion, and the funerary beliefs of his time. The second mummy, perhaps 500 years older, is that of a woman traditionally known as &ldquo;Hatason.&rdquo; Neither her mummy nor her coffin has fared as well as those of Irethorrou, and they present a stark contrast to Irethorrou&rsquo;s perfectly preserved body.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Visitors can examine both mummies by means of an interactive virtual dissection table supplied by Anatomage, a San Jose medical solutions company.

The exhibition features paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, historical artifacts, and ephemera in a thematic presentation that celebrates the abundance and diversity within the region&rsquo;s physical environment. This is a companion exhibition to <a href="http://deyoung.famsf.org/exhibitions/ed-ruscha-and-great-american-west" target="_blank"><em>Ed Ruscha and the Great American West</em></a>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The American frontier has long existed in the popular imagination as a land of unlimited promise and potential. As the landscape has been reshaped throughout history by prospectors, loggers, farmers, and urban developers, generations of artists have also invented and re-envisioned it in their works to fit the preoccupations of their times. Images of the land&rsquo;s exploitation contrast with those that document the natural beauty and unique geological features of the region, including depictions of the Western national parks.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Included in <em>Wild West</em> are works by Albert Bierstadt, Maynard Dixon, William Keith, Thomas Moran, Eadweard Muybridge, Chiura Obata, Bill Owens, Frederic Remington, Ed Ruscha, Fritz Scholder, Michael Schwab, Wayne Thiebaud, Carleton Watkins, and other artists, whose diverse range of approaches to the theme contribute to a multifaceted picture of the American West.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> Mon, 02 May 2016 17:58:14 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list - Legion of Honor - May 7th - October 16th <div class="panel-pane pane-entity-field pane-node-body"> <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <p style="text-align: justify;">From its natural splendors to its sprawling suburbs and congested cities, California presents myriad realities.

Josephson has long been recognized as one of the early and most influential American practitioners of conceptual photography. The exhibition will showcase Josephson&rsquo;s ground breaking and highly experimental black and white photographs spanning more than six decades. For this third exhibition at the gallery the work will be presented by the following genres in keeping with the monograph: Nature/Landscape, Man-Made/Urban, Self-Portrait, Studio/Objects, Women, and Family.<br /><br /> Kenneth Josephson is known for his conceptual photographs that famously layer pictures within pictures, focusing on the act of picture making and offering playful commentary on photographic truth and illusion. His experiments require the viewer to consider the act of photography and convey the artist&rsquo;s desire to question the medium and reject the illusion of realism. As an example, through the use of hand-held measuring devices, Josephson constructs parodies of pseudo-scientific inquiry, ultimately challenging the use of photography as the ultimate measuring device of &ldquo;reality.&rdquo; In Josephson&rsquo;s photographs it is the photograph itself that assures us that we should question the veracity of photography.<br /><br /> Kenneth Josephson was born on July 1, 1932 in Detroit, Michigan. He earned a BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1957, where he studied under Minor White. In 1960, he earned an MS from the Institute of Design of the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, where he studied with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind. Josephson was a professor at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1967 to 1997, and a founding member of the Society for Photographic Education. He is the recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship (1972) and two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships (1975 and 1979). His work is in the collections of numerous institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Art Institute of Chicago; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C; Biblioth&egrave;que National de France, Paris; and Fotografiska Museet, Stockholm, among others. Monographs include, <em>Kenneth Josephson: A Retrospective</em> (Art Institute of Chicago), <em>Kenneth Josephson: Selected Photographs</em> (Only Photographs), and <em>Kenneth Josephson: The Light of Coincidence</em> (University of Texas Press).</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Artist Reception and Book Signing: <br /> Thursday, April 28, 2016 <br /> 5:30 - 7:30 pm</p> Mon, 02 May 2016 17:42:01 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Yin-Ju Chen - Kadist Art Foundation - May 11th - June 25th <p style="text-align: justify;">I Adama</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Greetings humans.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">I High Priest of survivor civilization.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Lemuria alive beneath Mount Shasta California.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Mother land observe.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Geometry language.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Past learn, present see, future review.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Come.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Adama</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ndash; translated with the help of Lucia.</p> Mon, 02 May 2016 17:38:26 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list June Culp, Bruno Fazzolari, Adam Novak - City Limits - May 20th - June 18th Mon, 02 May 2016 17:35:17 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list - City Limits - May 13th 7:00 PM - 12:00 AM <p style="text-align: justify;">arc refers to a process rather than an author. a curvature within a void which makes something momentarily visible. a form through which something moves but within which it neither originates nor terminates, nor is contained. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">in this process, material elements are used to investigate immaterial states. framing the space of encounter as a site of unfixed ritual and sensory research - the cinema, gallery, studio, home, stairwell, street, etc.; countless iterations of the the open field or the enclosure. a coded and symbolic and language is used to trace lines between seemingly disparate paths of knowledge held in recurrent forms, manifesting in oscillating relationships between microcosm and macrocosm. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">throughout the next five weeks City Limits will be the site of this sensory research.
