Artist Talk with Freddy Chandra\, Desiré\;e Holman and Ranu Mukher jee
Saturday\, February 21\, 2pm
Kala Gallery\, Berkeley

Kala Art Institute is excited to present an artist talk with Freddy Chan dra\, Desiré\;e Holman and Ranu Mukherjee\, featuring in our current exhibition\, Seeing Time - Time Traveller. This event is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Freddy Chandra &rsquo\;s work consists of site-specific installations and multi-panel wall compositions. Each installation is an immersive environment constructed as a place that encourages sensory understanding of physical space and tempor al duration. His compositions suggest a contingency in the rhythmic act of marking space and shifts that occur in our experience of time. Chandra comp leted his undergraduate studies in Architecture and Art Practice from the U niversity of California at Berkeley\, and obtained his MFA in Studio Art fr om Mills College in Oakland. He is an Adjunct Faculty at Mills College\, an d has previously been a Summer Session Lecturer at UC Berkeley. He is a rec ipient of a 2009 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant. He has also previously received a Kala Art Institute Fellowship\, a Project Sp ace Residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts\, and a residency at Dje rassi Resident Artists Program.

Desiré\;e Holman&rsquo\;s multi-sensory work positions theatrical tools like costumes or props\, in s ettings that illuminate ideas of identity\, knowledge\, and the complexitie s of the human psyche. Her new work Sophist explores everything spacy inclu ding astrology\, aliens\, auras\, harmonic convergence\, mysticism\, occult ism\, animal magnetism and other spiritual pseudo-sciences. In this new bod y of work\, Holman creates harmony between the real and fiction\, the ratio nal and instinct\, and the past and future. Holman holds a Masters degree f rom the University of California at Berkeley. She was awarded a San Francis co Modern Museum of Art SECA award in 2008 and in 2007 the Artadia: The Fun d for Art and Dialogue award. Solo exhibitions of her work include the Hamm er Museum in Los Angeles and the Berkeley Art Museum&rsquo\;s MATRIX progra m.http://www. desireeholman.com/ \;

Ranu Mukherjee&rsquo\;s hybrid fil ms\, textiles\, works on paper and performed projects explore the construct ion of culture and probe ways that contemporary life is shaped by creolizat ion and nomadism. She actively collects her source material or nomadic arch ive from the public\, and composes her work with this material engaging vie wers through a culturally hybrid and visibly crafted aesthetic. Mukherjee r eceived an MFA in painting from the Royal College of Art\, London and a BFA in painting and film from the Massachusetts College of Art. Mukherjee's wo rk has been exhibited and screened internationally in New Delhi\, Jakmel\, London\, Los Angeles\, Vancouver\, Berlin\, Turin\, Belfast\, Capetown and Budapest. She is represented by Gallery Wendi Norris. \;http://www.ranumukh erjee.com/

&ldquo\;I take simple \, bold\, and instantly recognizable images of everyday life and paint them with a sense of drama.  \;If there is a theory behind my work\, it is semiotics: the theory of signs.

1AM Gallery is pleased to pres ent\, &ldquo\;Inamorata&rdquo\;\, showcasing both local ar tists\, Amandalynn\, Hueman\, Lady Mags\, Helice Wen\, Joshua Lawyer\, Mela nie Alves\, Houston Berry\, Monty Guy\, and Jet Martinez\, and artists from afar\, Vans the Omega and Annica Lydenberg. Throughout time\, artists of a ll kinds have been inspired by their lovers. Many times these inspiring ent ities are female characters that entice\, excite\, or even disrupt an artis t&rsquo\;s spirit. The term &lsquo\;Inamorata&rsquo\; by definition means:& nbsp\;a woman with whom one is in love\, \;and is many times u sed in reference to a woman who inspires her lover&rsquo\;s creativity.

\n

Amandalynn \;has curated an exhibition for \;1AM Gallery\, which includes a group of artists inspired by the theme &lsquo\;Inamorata&rsquo\;. Each art ist in some way has created works that exhibit a strong passion for feminin e attributes. This small collection of extremely talented and diverse artis tic entities will display a complete visual definition of inspiration throu gh love and passion.

\n

Combining alluri ng illustrative figures and abstract emotional images\, these works express the fluctuation of emotions that enrapture a person&rsquo\;s mind when the y&rsquo\;re entangled in the power of love. From cleansing the spirit to re connecting with nature and its creatures\, the artists portray the freedom of love in its numerous forms. The exhibition will display all new works by included participants\, as well as a custom mural by some of the artists o n the exterior of the gallery.
