The Higher We Rise\, The Further I Seem\, \;by \;Matthew Gottschalk \;is when the sun is low. Gottschalk's play ful structures are activated with projections that emphasize the ever-chang ing nature of our urban landscape. Then look for the surprise. \;In his installations\, Gottschalk is known for creating hand-carved wooden marion ettes as protagonists. \;These \;marionettes serve as extensions of the artist\, enabling him to playfully insert himself into a variety of la ndscapes and environments. \;A single marionette is placed into this in stallation\, representing not only the artist but also the everyman. (To se e more of Matthew's work check out his solo exhibition at \;Alter Space.) \;

John Berggruen Gallery is plea sed to present an exhibition of new paintings by California-based artist Cl are Kirkconnell. The exhibition &ndash\; the first of the gallery&rsquo\;s 45th year in business &ndash\; opens \;Thursday\, January 8th\, and con tinues through \;Saturday\, January 31st. John Berggruen Gallery will h ost a reception for the artist on \;Thursday\, January 8th from 5:30 to 7:30pm \;to coincide with the San Francisco Art Dealers Association&rs quo\;s First Thursdays. This is Kirkconnell&rsquo\;s third solo show at Joh n Berggruen Gallery.

In this exhibition of fourteen new painting s\, Kirkconnell continues to communicate her vested interest in nature thro ugh her selection of organic subject-matter and through her process\, which mimics the elemental unpredictability intrinsic to the natural world. She mixes her paint directly on the canvas\, allowing the pigments to pool and mix freely. Despite the surrender to entropy this process entails\, Kirkcon nell relies heavily on a grid to structure her compositions. Although it is a recurring theme in her paintings\, the grid takes center stage in the ne w works exhibited in Juxtapositions.

The prominent position the grid assumes in her works is rooted in her early experience with and exposu re to the fiber arts. Kirkconnell&rsquo\;s grandmother taught the artist to knit and weave\, and thereby introduced her to the grid\, at a very early age. From then on\, it became a powerful informant behind her creative impu lse. &ldquo\;Graph paper was a constant tool from early on\,&rdquo\; Kirkco nnell has acknowledged\, explaining that &ldquo\;the warp and weft of those clean blue lines inspired [her] to create much more readily than a blank s heet of paper.&rdquo\; The impulse\, however\, is not to treat each of the small squares comprising the grid as distinct\, solid\, matte blocks. Unlik e graph paper\, stained glass\, and screen pixels\, each of Kirkconnell&rsq uo\;s subcomponents borrows from the next. Each square blends into its neig hbors\, harboring unique graduations of hue and tone that create an allurin g visual display by freeing the pure\, unmodified grid of its inherent rigi dity and severity.

Kirkconnell is also interested in investigati ng how colors interact with each other\, and the overall effect these inter actions produce. Driven by a budding interest in color theory\, she has res earched at length the work of French chemist Michel Eugene Chevreul\, whose color principle &ndash\; namely that the perception of a given color can c hange depending on the colors surrounding it &ndash\; greatly advanced art in Europe in the eighteenth century. Kirkconnell employs the grid as a play ground upon which to explore this theory in her art. The combinations of ea rthy tones used in this latest body of work make the canvases subtly shift and pulsate\, morphing as if alive\, sometimes in entirely unexpected ways.

Born in Brownsville\, Texas\, in 1955\, Clare Kirkconnell spent a number of years in Mexico City before returning to Houston to finish hig h school. She developed an interest in the arts early on and continued her education at Palomar College in San Marcos\, California. After college\, Ki rkconnell spent several years as a fashion model traveling the world from b ases in New York and Paris. She concurrently studied acting\, landing sever al film and television roles\, including a three-year run as the female lea d in the highly acclaimed drama The Paper Chase. Never abandoning her early interest in painting\, Kirkconnell then continued her studies at Santa Mon ica College and Otis Parsons School of Design. Her work has been consistent ly well-received and can be found in many important private collections. Wh en not in the studio\, Kirkconnell divides her time between her husband and son\, the family wine business\, &ldquo\;Hollywood and Vine Cellars\,&rdqu o\; and a deep\, abiding urge to see every corner of the globe. \;

&ldquo\;This series began as a meditation on loss and evolved into a celeb ration of life.&rdquo\;

\n

 \;\n

The wall of yarn skeins\, belonging to a loved one\, became the foca l point for Donald Bradford&rsquo\;s reflections on loss. \; Through hi s characteristic loose\, painterly style and vibrant colors\, the series de veloped into a tribute of a life lived.

\n

&ldquo\;After nearly five decades of surfing and painting\, a symbiosis o ccurs between the two\, a deeply interwoven relationship feeds both passion s.&rdquo\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nbs p\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&n bsp\; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \ ; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nbs p\; \; \; \; \; \; --Ned Evans

\n

 \;

\n

From the sand to the ocean and water\, Ned Evans finds inspiration in his t wo passions of surfing and art. \; His works are derived from the memor y and the ephemeral experience the ocean gives to those who love it.

\n< p> \;

\n

&ldquo\;My paintings are visual resting places where the viewer&rsquo\;s interpretive associations can collect inside.&rdquo\;&n bsp\; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;& nbsp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \ ; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nbs p\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \;& nbsp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; --Alex Weinstein

\n

\n

Alex Weinstein mixes abstraction w ith the faintest traces of representational imagery in his painting and scu lptures to evoke the essence and texture of hazy sea surfaces. \; The a tmospheres he creates become quiet\, contemplative places for the audience to interpret as they see fit.
