Kick off the summer with new works by Mayne Kratz! Kratz finds inspiration in Arizona's harsh desert climate, collecting found organic materials such as bone fragments, poppy pods, grasses, and flowers which she collects on long hikes in the surrounding area of her home and even on the train tracks behind her studio. She arranges this matter in circles, constellations, nests and other forms before suspending it in resin against a painted panel. Materiality is both heightened and diminished as the earthen matter transforms into a micro or macro ecosystem of its own. The process is time-consuming, toxic and difficult, but for her, this act of preservation is an ode to the cyclical pattern of nature. "With my art, I celebrate the endless cycles of change and rebirth," she explains. "I have great reverence for the natural world." Also on view is Leap of Faith: Rodney Smith Retrospective, with Paul Martineau, Curator of Photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum, and Leslie Smolan, Executive Director of the Rodney Smith Estate, in attendance.

Enjoy the paintings of Carmen McNall at our August Galley Walk! California based artist Carmen McNall’s paintings are punctuated by deep woodcuts creating a balance between textured patterns and stretches of pure pigment. By combining painting with added wood carving techniques, the paintings are not just rich in color, but embody the idea of “handcrafted, " a theme that is central in her work through both process and subject matter as hands play a recurring role. The faceless figures in McNall’s work resemble Goddess-like muses as they rest in dynamic yet effortless poses. Each one embodying strength, confidence, and wisdom. The figures are adorned with a novel blend of symbolic patterns and mark making. They rest within their own elements, surrounded by a complex yet tranquil interior landscape that inhabit both ancient and futuristic realms. "My work tells the stories of female figures of strength, focusing on those who work with their hands; keeping alive the artifacts of humanity." - Carmen

Come view the delicate and complex paintings by Kelly Ording! Ording’s works explore the fine line between minimalism and representation. Interested in the tonal and textural possibilities of a surface, Ording often begins her compositions by hand dyeing paper or canvas, creating an element of surprise and playfulness that offsets the mathematical rigor and precision of her use of bold color and line. Central to her work is the interplay of radiating color, unfolding shapes, and patterns. "My goal is to create paintings that appear minimal at first glance, but are in fact, complex visual records of time, life and experiences." - Kelly Ording

Frances McCormack is a Professor Emerita of Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute who's work as an abstract painter draws on the history of gardens and landscape design. Her paintings are invented spaces or interior theaters that are essentially images of the process of growth and transformation within a contained space. Combining architectural elements and loosely interpreted botanical forms, the paintings hold a range of energies reflected through the natural world. The lush paint, the physicality of execution and the history of decisions are obvious and unapologetically optical. More interested in seduction than instruction or critique she is in pursuit of the marvelous.
