> DESCRIPTION

Alessandro Pessoli's evocative drawings, paintings, and sculptures place expressive, often melancholy figures in indeterminate spaces and dreamlike narratives. Fluidly moving across media and shifting between two- and three-dimensional forms, Pessoli renders his seemingly restless and exaggerated characters in a manner that is rich in historical references to art, cinema, and theater. This exhibition, the artist's first solo museum presentation on the West Coast, debuts a new series of works on paper and painted majolica ceramics paired with recent graphite drawings and sculpture. Together, these works reveal an imaginative, organic meditation on Modernism, mythology, and the artistic persona.

This exhibition is temporarily closed October 29 - November 2, 2012.
