In Cody Hoyt and Alexander Kor i Girard&rsquo\;s upcoming show at Johansson Projects\, patterned forms and organic geometries come together in an unique exploration of functional pe rmanence and mystic communication.

\n

Co dy Hoyt&rsquo\;s ceramics are rigorously drawn\, curiously angular\, and in tricately patterned\, creating brutalist organic &ldquo\;vessels&rdquo\; th at question the need for function over form. The forms are constructed from patterned slabs\, which are themselves assembled from smaller individual p ieces\; a highly individualized framework for a three dimensional explorati on of pattern and abstraction. Surface and material masterfully fuse to cre ate a form that blurs the boundaries between utility and beauty. The histor ical associations of sharp lines and angles reference origami\, the machine age and cubist space. Their openings are not an entry point or mechanism o f display\, rather a fissure within the vessel\, completing its aesthetic d esign. The forms are cracked and ruptured within their pastel-toned marking s\, an unpredictable result of the mixing of elements revealed during the f iring process. Yet\, despite their perceived instability\, Hoyt&rsquo\;s ve ssels are solid and permanent in their delicate nature.
At first glan ce\, Alexander Kori Girard&rsquo\;s works register visually as paper cut ou ts or prints\, but each piece is individually hand drawn and meticulously p ainted. Perhaps influenced by his work in the world of high design and text iles\, his craftsmanship and composition are both precise and organic. His artwork presents a narrative of how people experience and interact with the natural world\, and an immediate personal connection is easily made to eac h piece. Evoking a magical feeling of an apparition\, his petroglyphs are a t once a shapeless void and a collection of familiar symbols. Elements of m odern folk lore and story-telling are also integral: His grandfather\, the legendary Alexander Girard\, was a prolific collector of folk art\, and Gir ard was submerged in this relation at a young age. His organic works thus c ontain an essential feeling of home. They are timelessly archetypal and fan tastical\, an homage to the healing power of nature.

Robin Kandel: The 45th Parallel
October 13 &ndash\; November 11\, 2016
Op ening Reception: Thursday\, October 13\, 5:30 - 7:30

\n

& ldquo\;This work is about a specific place and any place. It&rsquo\;s about midpoints\, landmarks\, road trips\, road maps\, and long stretches that t ake us somewhere and elsewhere&rdquo\;.

\n

&mdash\; Robin Kandel< /p>\n

Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce Robin Kandel&rsquo\; s sixth solo exhibition with the gallery entitled The 45th Parallel. True to her previous explorations\, Kandel consistently examines and dis sects our notions of distance and location. Her practice remains deliberate ly slow and meditative\, creating a fluid rhythm of straight lines that lay er to bring about a kinetic yet minimal optical effect. Showing over 20 new works\, ranging in size\, Kandel employs acrylic paints and graphite on va rious materials such as vintage maps and wood panels.

\n

This series o f work relates to Kandel&rsquo\;s primary school memories of first thinking about distance and location while making paper globes in geography class. She revisited the experience recently when she came face to face with the 4 5th Parallel while stopping through Traverse City\, Michigan. For Kandel\, something that only existed conceptually\, becamereal&mdash\;points on a ma p are every bit as abstract as theyare concrete\, embodying meaning as well as information.

\n

Andrea Schwartz Gallery was established in 1982 an d is located in the South of Market district of San Francisco at 545 &ndash \; 4th Street. ASG exhibits contemporary work of mid- career artists from t he Bay Area and across the country. ASG is a member of SFADA. Gallery Hours are Monday - Friday 9 - 5\, Saturday by appointment.

Most objects don&rsquo\;t make it. \;With time and neglect\, \;most objects become used up and wo rn down. \;It happens to cars and to desks and to books and to clothes.  \;It happens to nails and to bolts. \;It happens to buildings and to bridges. \;It happens to lungs and to teeth and to bones and to hear ts. \;They fall short. \;They disappear. \;

One coul d \;(and some do) \;develop a type of attachment to objects. \; A certain sentimentality. \;A touch of pity\, \;perhaps\, \;but also a sense of tenderness\, \;compassion\, \;and even romance.&nb sp\;Holding onto something destined to be lost is somewhat heart breaking.& nbsp\;

Camille Blatrix&rsquo\;s objects are bittersweet&mdash\;t hey are impeccably fabricated but fraught with emotional entanglement.  \;The surfaces are scrutinized\, \;the edges are caressed\, \;each detail is perfected\, \;and yet the metaphors remain abstract and the o rigin stories never clear. \;They seem to be the work of a lover\,  \;a dreamer\, \;a carpenter\, \;and an engineer all rolled into one . \;
