Lightscape/Darkscape: New Works by Kala Artists
2D, 3D + book art from artists of Kala Art Institute, Berkeley
RECEPTION: Friday January 13 • 5-8pm during 2nd Fridays Art Walk
Lightscape/Darkscape features the work of twelve artists who have participated in Kala's Residency Programs. For this exhibition, Andrea Voinot, Kala's Art Sales Manager, has selected works in which the artist's technique or subject matter explores the balance of polarities, and the landscape of choices, between "darkness" and "lightness."
Whether it be through an exploration of tonal values (Kazuko Watanabe), the inventive addressing of "loaded" themes (Elisheva Biernoff, Vanessa Marsh), or an inversion of our expectations of gravity (Renee Gertler, Nancy Mintz), this is art that affects - inviting a physical response.
These artists' works represent a sampling of the media supported by Kala's studio facilities - including printmaking, photography, book arts, digital media and video - available to all resident artists and enrolled students affiliated with Kala Art Institute.
