DESCRIPTION

In Narratives & Embellishments, San Francisco artists Christine Cariati, Liz Hager, and Mark Ulriksen present unique styles of storytelling through imagery & text.

Cariati's original gouache paintings feature natural landscapes filled with color & spirit, in which the figures portrayed play out a darker Darwinian drama.

For her new collection True Nature, Hager employes the Digital MetalType medium, one she has developed, to render her photomontages and accompanying text into a "book" printed on copper.

Ulriksen's work on display includes digital prints of his original satirical and humorous cover art for the New Yorker magazine.
