In OPPERSPECTIVE\, his fourth solo exhibiti on at Scott Richards Contemporary Art\, celebrated British artist P ATRICK HUGHES continues his pursuit of the paradox with a new seri es of three-dimensional\, illusionistic\, painted wood constructions. \ ; A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday\, June 4\, 5: 30-7:30 pm. \; The exhibition continues through June 2 7.

\n

 \;In Hughes&rsquo\;s quirky and instantly recogniz able wall reliefs\, the line between sculpture and painting is blurred\, an d space itself is manipulated with disorienting results. The painted panels jut away at angles from the wall\, but when the works are viewed head-on\, their three-dimensionality disappears.  \;By reversing the apparent pe rspective in the subject matter\, and uncovering multiple points of view si multaneously\, the paintings acquire a sense of enigmatic motion.  \;As the viewer walks back and forth in front of a work\, it takes on the appea rance of a flat plane that moves and shifts\, obscuring and revealing diffe rent aspects of the painted scene.

\n

 \;Hughes has been fascinate d with puzzles\, perspective and optical illusion all his life. \; He c reated his first three-dimensional paintings in 1964\, and has spent the la st several decades exploring and honing his signature style. \; Favorit e subjects\, appearing in different forms throughout his works\, include ar twork\, architecture\, books\, landscape\, and doors that open onto mysteri ous hallways or distant horizons.

\n

 \;In a recent interview in < em>ARTnews\, Barbara A. MacAdam wrote\, &ldquo\;Hughes&rsquo\;s work f its no category but partakes of many. \; Falling between Surrealism\, P op art\, and Conceptualism\, with nods at Cubism and even Minimalism\, it i s most distinguished and energized by homemade magic.&rdquo\;

\n

  \;Patrick Hughes was born in 1939 in Birmingham\, UK\, and is based in Lond on. Internationally recognized as a major contemporary British artist\, he is also a designer\, teacher\, and author. \; His works have been exhib ited in major cities such as London\, Paris\, New York\, Toronto\, Seoul\, Los Angeles and Chicago and are held in many public collections\, including the British Library and the Tate Gallery in London\; the Gallery of Modern Art\, Glasgow\; the Deutsche Bibliothek\, Frankfurt\; and the Denver Art M useum

The arrangement of objects within a given volume of space di ctates the behavior of those active within its boundaries. Boats avoid rock s\; words cling to pages\; light finds\, and then instantaneously flees fro m\, surfaces. The body bends around space\, is confined by composition\; me aning settles on objects\, arranged just so. Conflicts ensue.

\n

  \;

\n

As you cruise down the coast in a small boat\, you encounter a m an who wants you to help him make something.
He has not said anything to you\, or even acknowledged that you're \;there\, but you can tell\, beyond a shadow of a doubt\, exactly what he wants made.
You rush to a different part of the boat and begin to work on his object: three empty be er cans\, taped together in a row\, for extinguishing cigarette butts.
You approach the man proudly\, holding up the object for him to see.
You have never met this man\, but he seems as familiar as an old friend.
You suddenly realize that you're concerned about how he will reuse this object after it becomes full\, and you try to ask him about it in a languag e that you speak badly.
He smiles and answers in a thickly accented ve rsion a language you speak very well.
He says something -- speaking mo re articulately\, and with better grammar than you do -- about how you can detect imperfections in constructions like this one by making small holes i n their sides and holding them up for (our friend) the wind to explore.
You do not understand\, but think that you will use this strategy in the future.

FFDG is pleased to present San Francisco-based artist Ryan De La Hoz in his first solo show with the gall ery entitled &ldquo\;Impassible Terrain&rdquo\; including cut paper works\, textiles\, puzzles\, drawings\, works on canvas\, and a watercolor paintin g on wood. An opening reception is scheduled for \;Friday\, May 29  \;(6-9pm). The artist will be present. Beer and wine will be served. \;

\n

Through a conflation of past and pre sent\, Ryan De La Hoz utilizes periodic icons of \;history to visually and metaphorically excavate emotions such as apathy\, fear\, hope\, joy\, a nd misery. Employing a broad variety of media and objects\, he analyzes our current era using ancient signifiers. Objects of antiquity reoccur in his work and take the form of hand cut paper compositions with vases and bold g raphic imagery relying on Greek sculpture as a central figure. Due to his b elief that collective experience ties humans together throughout history\, he is able to distill broad and epic ideas through simple objects like patc hes and puzzles.
 \;
Highly simplistic in their aesthetic exe cution\, the central objects and figures in De La Hoz&rsquo\;s works are of ten destroyed or teeter on the edge of ruin\, evoking a sense of dissent\, rather than as precious art objects. As a maker in our currently over-satur ated technological environment\, hand cut paper goes against the historical ly-weighted exquisite work of art. Highlighting this tension\, he guides us through an &ldquo\;Impassable Terrain&rdquo\; through depictions of dense foliage that are both welcoming and foreboding. This overgrowth reminds us of civilizations that have crumbled under their quest for power revealing t hat the never-ending cycle of order always ends in chaos\, revolution\, and enlightenment. \;By conflating this time into a single image\, he allo ws us to reflect on our current condition through our historical experience s.
 \;
De La Hoz was born in 1985 in Mission Hills\, Californ ia and currently lives and works in San Francisco. He has been published by FLJ Magazine in Tokyo\, Museums Press in the UK\, IdN Magazine in Hong Kon g\, Juxtapoz Magazine and Beautiful/Decay in the US. He has also participat ed in solo exhibitions in San Francisco\, LA and Seattle as well as group e xhibitions in the United States\, the Philippines\, Japan\, Hong Kong\, Ger many\, Canada\, and the United Kingdom.

All good art begins with a risk. Many of the ones in Ris k\, now at the Berkeley Art Center\, pay off. Works like Cathy Lu&rsqu o\;s &ldquo\;Girls Playing\,&rdquo\; which portrays a disembodied scalp and gouged-out eyeballs serving as maypole to a horde of tiny pig-tailed girl- creatures\, and Nuala Creed&rsquo\;s &ldquo\;Mea Culpa\,&rdquo\; a sculptur e of a bare-bottomed nun kneeling in prayer. These\, too\, certainly raise eyebrows\, but ultimately succeed by pointing back to the compelling specif icities and eccentricities of their creators.

 \;Antonio Prieto and Eunice Adams met while studying cera mics at Alfred University in the 1940s. After graduating\, they married and moved to Oakland\, California when Tony joined the faculty at the Californ ia College of Arts and Crafts. In 1958\, Tony became the Chair of the Art D epartment at Mills College\, where he taught until his untimely death in 19 67.  \;As ceramics teachers and collaborators\, Tony and Eunice raised their four sons &ndash\; Esteban\, Mark\, Peter\, and Paco &ndash\; on the Mills College campus where their home was a center for a community of artis ts. In the 1970s\, Eunice and her sons relocated to West Oakland where they established Prieto Studios\, which is still active today.

\n

 \;A ntonio Prieto (1912-1967) was born in Spain but immigrated to the United St ates with his family as a baby. \; He established an important position for himself within the history of American ceramics\, which has been docum ented by the Smithsonian Archives of American Art. He exhibited widely arou nd the United States and Europe and played an influential role in the natio nal and international dialogue about ceramic art. \; He was beloved by his students and his colleagues.

\n

 \;Eunice Prieto Damron taught ceramics at the Walnut Creek Civic Center and at Mills College\, where she also curated the Prieto Gallery and the Antonio Prieto Collection. She liv es and works in the high basin range of western Nevada\, and makes ceramics in the warmer months and watercolors in the winter. She turned 91 this yea r.

\n

 \;Esteban Prieto\, the eldest son of Tony and Eunice\, is a master glass blower and is known for his functional blown glass tumblers. He lives and works in Saint Louis\, Missouri with his wife\, Nori Obata\, p orcelain ceramicist and a glass bead maker. \;

\n

 \;Mark Prie to\, the second son\, graduated in ceramics in 1973 from the Rhode Island S chool of Design. \; He creates distinctive ceramics in his home studio in Portland\, Oregon and has also enjoyed many years of teaching ceramics.  \;He frequently collaborates with his wife\, theatre director and writ er Stephanie Arnold Prieto\, notably in the area of set design and ceramic properties for theatre productions.

\n

 \;Peter Prieto was the thi rd born son. His craft manifested through various methods of welding\, cons truction\, farming\, and storytelling. At the age of twenty-six\, he purcha sed a stretch of coastal land on the Fort Ross Ridge\, where he built his h ouse and welding shop with his wife\, Lynne Prieto. They raised three child ren\, Thea\, Laurel\, and Clayton. He passed away in 2012.

\n

 \;P aco Prieto\, the youngest son\, is a multi-constructionist\, known and well respected for his thoughtful craftsmanship in working with wood and metal. He has built many custom architectural fixtures for museums and public spa ces around the Bay Area and beyond. He lives and works at Prieto Studios in West Oakland.

\n

 \;Thea Prieto is the firstborn daughter of Pete r Prieto. She earned her BA in English from the University of California\, Berkeley\, and is currently pursuing her MFA in creative writing at Portlan d State University.

\n

 \;Laurel Prieto is the younger daughter of Peter Prieto. She received her BFA from the California College of the Arts (formally the California College of Arts and Crafts) and her MFA in printm aking from San Francisco State.

Reception June 6\, 3-5\; exhibition June 6- August 22\, 2015

\n

Catharine Clark Gallery presents Deep State\, featuring new painti ngs and prints by Scott Greene in which the notion of power appears as a de ep and abiding thread. Greene's latest work reflects a crossroads where bot h past and present meet\, and a vision of a dystopian future where popular culture collides with politics\, technology and the environment with tragic results. Greene's post-apocalyptic visions\, however\, are both sensuous a nd beautiful\, as well as entertaining and humorous. The work seems to sugg est that although life as we know it may radically shift\, we can learn to adapt and make the best of a bad situation with whatever remains. Greene co ntinues his exploration of the natural world punctuated by artificial const ructs\, but with a new emphasis on imagery of the American West. In Siren ( 2015)\, a tower of outdated speakers and woofers elevate an antique air rai d siren. A tumbleweed\, so large as to possess its own gravity\, is suspend ed in the sky like a lunar body. This modern day Tower of Babel\, balanced against the irrational symbol of a romanticized bygone Americana\, suggests the futility of technological innovations to actually improve communicatio n\, and an inevitable path towards nostalgia\, waste and obsolescence.

Exhibiting concurrently in our dedicated media room is Fallen Wate r\, a multi-channel video installation by the photographer and media artist Kevin Cooley. Fallen Water explores questions about why humans are drawn t o waterfalls and flowing water as a source for renewal. Waterfalls imbue su bconscious associations with pristine and healthy drinking water\, but what happens when when the fountain can no longer renew itself? Is the water no longer pure? Cooley's choice of subject matter strikes a deep chord with c urrent social consciousness and anxieties about contemporary water usage an d the drought crisis faced by the American West.

Opening Reception June 4\, 5:30-7:30pm\, Exhibition June 2-J une 27\, 2015

\n

Sandra Lee Gallery is proud to present new paintings by Bay Area artist Daniel Phill\, entitled Rhythm &\; Flux. In this show \, Mr. Phill interprets nature through the use of sophisticated colors\, vi gorous brushwork\, and emphatic facture. As the show's title implies\, his works vacillate between contrasting ideas - abstract and representational\, deliberate and spontaneous\, serene and wild - engaging the viewer to disc over Phill's unique visual language.

A fluid application of pai nt\, using non-traditional painting tools\, contributes to achieve results that are intensely colorful and often sensuous. In each painting\, Phill's use of color dramatizes the illusion of space and light to produce an ambia nce of both energy and serenity. He seems to deconstruct the natural enviro nment\, to then reconstruct it - using an improvised painterly expressionis m. "The excitement for me is referencing an object by using loose gestures and seemingly very little information\," Phill says.

Daniel Phil l can be seen as the spontaneous sower of seeds\, who casts them into a spa ce with abandon\, prepared to work with nature\, cultivating whatever takes root. Although he identifies with many of the principles and techniques of Abstract Expressionism\, he relishes the ambiguity between abstraction\, f iguration and the illusion of space in his paintings.

Born in Wa shington State. Mr. Phill received his MFA from Stanford University and his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Phill has exhibited widely and h is work is in diverse public and private collections\, including: Achenbach Foundation\, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco\; Citigroup\; Clear Channe l\; de Saisset Museum\, CA\; First USA Bank\; GTE\; Haggerty Museum of Art\ , Marquette University\, WI\; Morgan Stanley\; Nordstrom\; Santa Clara Vall ey Medical Center\; SAP America\; Sharper Image\; Sprint\; Stanford Univers ity\;Tucson Museum of Art\; and The US Department of State\, among others.

\n

 \;F ang Lu&rsquo\;s practice raises questions about the process of image making \, blurring the line between \;performance \;and reality. In her la test work\, \;No World\, six young protagonists reside in an e mpty house. Their daily activity is to rehearse the act of protest and to p erform violent behavior without actual conflict. The image of \;struggl e seamlessly transforms into an image of youth: free\, \;rebellious&nbs p\;and beautiful. The question remains&mdash\;what is an image? How is it p roduced\, mediated and consumed?

\n

 \;This event is organized in collaboration with the Chinese Cultural Center. On June 20\, in conjunction with their exhibition Present Tense 2015\, the Chinese Cultural C enter will host a conversation between artist Fang Lu and current MFA stude nts of Asian descent to discuss her experience after art school.
