> DESCRIPTION

This year's SECA Art Award exhibition showcases four Bay Area artists whose innovative works, while diverse in form and subject matter, reflect overlapping affinities. Jacobsen's meticulous drawings, watercolors, and installations often incorporate found ephemera to explore reflection and longing. Laskey employs weaving, using a traditional floor loom, to expand on the painterly tradition of geometric abstraction. Ancalmo combines various found mechanical instruments in a film-based installation to form a structural dialogue that is both poetically and philosophically inspired. And Patton synthesizes works in a range of media to investigate the inter-zone of sound, materiality, and perceptual experience. Established to recognize Bay Area artists of exceptional promise and talent with an exhibition, accompanying catalogue, and modest cash prize, the biennial award is administered by the Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art (SECA), an SFMOMA auxiliary group.
