Brennan & Griffin is pleased to announce Manhattan, an exhibition of new paintings by Mary Weatherford on view from September 9 - October 14, 2012.
Weatherford's work for nearly a decade has been an ongoing exploration of specific California landscapes as source material for her paintings. Subjects have included cliffs in Malibu, a sea cave on Pismo Beach, and a vine cluster near the artist's studio. Using such sites as a means for repeated examination allows her to fully explore these distinctively "California" locales through an ongoing series of paintings and drawings detailing their transformation and complimenting Weatherford's concern with form, space and color.
For her new exhibition, Weatherford focuses her attention on New York - where she lived from 1984 - 1999. Drawing on memory and experience of sites both personally and culturally significant, these large-scale paintings explore the indelible impressions left by the city. Weatherford continues her interest in combining a range of sources to create works that explore the fidelity and vibrancy of recollection.
This will be the gallery's second Solo Exhibition with Mary Weatherford in New York. Her upcoming Solo Exhibition, Bakersfield Paintings, opens at LA><ART in Los Angeles on September 21st.
