Lisa Rosenstreich: Material Investigations

OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 5:00-7:00

My work reflects an interest in expressionism, abstraction and figuration.   Characterized by a vivid, subjective color pallet, it is often loosely narrative with frequent references made to the psychology of human experience and to the natural world.   I work in series; exploring ideas and emotional experiences over the course of many paintings and drawings.

Join us for the first show in our new space in the Benicia Arsenal, with a solo exhibition of abstract expressionist painter Lisa Pressman.

"My work embodies a visual synthesis of stored memory. Personal recollections, both vivid and vague, build and decompose over time. Each painting, with its complex layered surface, elicits a visceral response, reshaping its own new history."

Larry Mullins: Notes on Running (Inner Gallery)

OPENING NIGHT / ART WALK: FRIDAY, OCT 13, 5:00 - 9:00

ARTIST'S RECEPTION: SATURDAY, OCT 14, 5:00 - 7:00

Letterform and abstraction are the primary ingredients used to construct my paintings. Victorian fonts are used for their broadside optimism while Gothic and Germanic types provide a darker - authoritarian- more cryptic quality.The arrangements are customized through a process of shifting, adding, editing and repairing. The goal - to find poignant/poetic relationships between font and form. That process also aides in visually grounding the text in the overall architecture. I'm continually fascinated how dedication to the handmade quality of the work gives rise to a radiance which appears elevated by the depth of the artists belief.

Mimi Ting: Willing to Fly

OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, SEPT 8, 7:00 - 9:00

I was born into a household with three women who had bound feet: Great Grandmother, Grandmother and Sixth Great Aunt. We lived together in an old house in Shanghai with a garret where all the children slept. One of my earliest memories was reaching into the secret jar from which all sweetness flowed, to pick out my own bar of brown sugar. Another was my stepping onto the sill of an open window, a cool wind on my face; I reached toward the patch of blue-grey sky, willing to fly.  Voices behind me screamed, “No! Stop! Do not move!” Those words became the mantra for most of my upbringing.  They were to prevent me from being struck by whatever misfortune might be waiting in ambush.  In order to not get into trouble, I became adept at being still, and learned to thrive in stealth and silence.  Imagination was my window for escape…
