Gallery Paule Anglim is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition by San Francisco-based artist Colter Jacobsen (American, b. 1975), entitled Scanning the long sleeves of the shore.

Jacobsen uses a distinctive collection of found source material to create meticulous drawings, watercolors, and installations that often incorporate found ephemera to explore memory and reflection that is activated by his fascination with finding, or creating, matched pairs of objects. 

For this exhibition, Jacobsen will show a series of collages made from varied found elements such as envelopes, posters, and candy wrappers. The materials are carefully cut and assembled in the shape of a man's button-down shirt, some include a delicately drawn hanger. The shirt appears empty as if hanging and suspended in wait of a body to give it form. The repetition of the shirt outline echoing throughout this collection of work becomes it's own rhythm, beating in time like waves that meet the shore.


Having earned his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, his work has been included in several exhibitions throughout the United States and in London. In 2010, Jacobsen received the 2010 SECA Art Award from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
