SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art
is presenting Reconfigured, a group exhibition of new paintings curated by gallery favorite Jacob Tillman. Exhibiting artists include: Gerald Davis, Mari Eastman, Bryson Gill, Todd Lanam, Allison Schulnik, and Lauren Silva.
The show reflects an ongoing conversation among contemporary painters working in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area addressing the contemporary experience of space. Since the Renaissance discovery of perspective, each successive generation of painters in the Western tradition has re-interpreted the perception of painted space just as the human psychology of space (and time) has evolved and morphed in step with the technological, institutional, and psychological transformations that have marked the progression of Western societies toward modernism and beyond.
How is space perceived and experienced: physically and emotionally, consciously and subconsciously? The artists of Reconfigured address this question in paintings stemming from their day-to-day perception of physical space, yet mediated by specific choices of materials, composition, and process.
