> DESCRIPTION

San Francisco-based artists Silvia Poloto and Gustavo Ramos Rivera are featured in this exhibition of work.

Brazilian-born Silvia Poloto is known for lively abstract paintings. Recognized for her dynamic compositions and vibrant color, Poloto employs a visual vocabulary that is often bold and at times subtle. Her juxtapositions contrast graphic elements in saturated hues with gestural marks, incisions, and lines. The result is a body of work characterized by equal amounts of playfulness and provocation, engaging the viewer on a visceral level.

Gustavo Ramos Rivera is an abstract painter whose work is recognized for its joyful intensity as well as a form of invented iconography. This exhibition focuses on Ramos Rivera’s monotypes, marked by brilliant color and personal symbols. These vibrant works on paper draw on pre-Columbian Mesoamerican art and architecture of Ramos Rivera’s native Mexico.
