“I like working with opposites, conflicting genres, and subjects from polarized sides of the social scale. I find that when you interweave contrary ideas, it gives a perspective on how strange it can be in present day life.”
Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition for Seamus Conley, opening Wednesday, November 2, 2011.
In Seamus Conley’s new body of work the visual elements of Sci-Fi and point and shoot photography intersect. The resulting overlap of vivid imagery evokes the idea of parallel universes and alternate versions of ourselves. These older worldly landscapes are inhabited by “mall chicks and misfits” and conjure up questions of how we connect with these hypothetical figures.
Conley is a self-taught painter. He was awarded the prestigious Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant in 2007. This is his third exhibition with Andrea Schwartz Gallery.
Andrea Schwartz Gallery was established in 1982 and is located in the South of Market district of San Francisco. ASG exhibits contemporary work of emerging to mid-career artists from the Bay Area and across the country. ASG is a member of SFADA. Gallery Hours are Monday - Friday 9 - 5, Saturday 1 – 5. The gallery will be closed November 24 - 26. For further information and materials please contact Jennifer Draughon at 415-495-2090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
