"TWINS" (2004) (GOUACHE ON PAPER, 11” x 7 ¾”) by MICHELLE WEINBERG
Location: Galatea Offsite-San Francisco Apartment

[SECOND MENTION DUE TO UPDATE]

UPDATE:

Michelle Weinberg is part of a new group exhibition that just opened in New York. Here's the gallery press release:

IF YOU’RE FEELING SINISTER

September 15 - October 15, 2005
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 15, 6 - 8 PM

Alona Kagan Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition organized by Independent Curator Anat Ebgi titled “If You’re Feeling Sinister”.

The exhibition features work by Derrick Adams, Aja Albertson, Diane Barcelowsky, Mike Cooter, Cooper, Jen DeNike, Michael Greathouse, Brad Greenwood, Aisling Hamrogue, David Hardy, Elizabeth Huey, Chris Jahncke, Lara Kohl, Justin Lowe, Matthew Lusk, Nathaniel Mellors, Ann Murphy, Chloe Piene, Anibal Pella, Ellen Robinson, Sigrid Sandstrom, Alexandre Singh, Mike Skinner, Chris Verene, Martabel Wasserman, Michelle Weinberg.

“If You’re Feeling Sinister”, a song and album title by Scottish collaborative band Belle & Sebastian, is the inspiration for this group show. The artwork exhibited will attempt to parallel this band’s musical techniques: their melodies are lilting and infectious; the delicate voice of the lead singer resonates as sad and painfully sincere while his humorous lyrics are startling and sardonic. The seemingly happy-go-lucky pop sound of their music radically contrasts with the profoundly real and poignantly dark lyrics. Like Belle & Sebastian, the artwork concerns itself with interweaving beauty and seduction with an underbelly of menace and dark humor.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10 – 6pm

Richard Tuttle opens a new exhibit, per the gallery's press release:

RICHARD TUTTLE
16 September - 28 October 2005
Opening Reception:
Friday, 16 September, 6-8pm

Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by artist Richard Tuttle. Exhibiting at the gallery for the second time, Tuttle's intelligent, abstract, unassuming yet aggressive vision has raised the bar on contemporary art for over 40 years.

During the winter of 2004 Tuttle unveiled a new body of work in the Drawing Center exhibition 'A Room for 3 People.' Comprised of six 'villages,' groupings of a sculpture and two sets of drawings, the show investigated the relationship between the artist, collector and art historian. The essence of the Drawing Center exhibition, and an ongoing topic presented by Tuttle's work for many years, is that the moment artwork is installed in a public setting it ceases to belong only to the artist; it now belongs to art history and there will be a public determination of its success or failure.

The structural dynamic of the work exhibited at Anthony Meier Fine Arts is an extension of the 'village' line. Materials as varied and unorthodox as sand, yarn, nails, faux fur and tinsel are attached to balsa wood, museum board or paper backs in a group of work Tuttle has titled 'Circles.'

Four of the 'Circles' are individual pieces while two others are comprised of an assemblage of two and three-dimensional components. How the works sit on the wall, the space taken up by their tangible footprints in relation to the visual -- and sometimes emotional space -- they take up, is an interesting and arresting conversation.

Also included in the exhibition are six drawings made during the installation of Tuttle's first museum retrospective, The Art of Richard Tuttle, currently on view at the SFMOMA through October 16th. The retrospective will travel to the Whitney Museum of American Art, Des Moines Art Center, Dallas Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Gallery Hours: Tues - Fri, 11am - 5pm.

"SPLAT" (2002) (CORRECTION FLUID ON PAPER) by REANNE ESTRADA
Location: Babaylan Lodge

[FOURTH MENTION DUE TO UPDATE]

UPDATE:


Reanne Estrada opens a new exhibition at the Lizabeth Oliveria Gallery, per the gallery press release:

CUT

Reanne Estrada


September 9th - October 8th

Reception: Friday, September 9th
7:00-9:00 p.m.

Los Angeles artist Reanne Estrada makes works of dubious archival quality that follow the trajectories of self-portraiture and body art. Part meditation on built-in obsolescence, part concession to the indefatigable forces of entropy, her work alludes to the fragility of the body and the improbability of stasis. She produces work very slowly. Everything is made by hand, very physical, very analog, choosing to work this way in part as a response to the mind-boggling pace and information overload that characterizes everyday life. In a digital age where anything seems possible, her work is mindful of the body, its limitations and imperfections. The work is best described as process-intensive high-relief drawing or low-relief sculpture, existing between two and three dimensions. Blurring distinctions between categories, the work rests comfortably in this in-between, hybrid state that is informed by the in-between-ness of her Filipino immigrant background: drawing/sculpture, manufactured/natural forms, micro/macro, done/undone.

Cut features work in a variety of media that intentionally sabotages the physical integrity of objects, collapsing the distinction between drawing and sculpture, two and three dimensions. Objects such as packing tape, erasers, and artificial flowers are methodically gutted, surgically cut up, cut out and put back together again. “Tenuous (tentatively titled)” a high-relief drawing/low-relief sculpture installation made of clear polypropylene packing tape, is an on-going work-in-progress. She has been working on this piece since 2001 and will continue to work on it until 2008, when she is a completely different person from the day she started. Every seven years, the body changes completely on a cellular level, inside out--organs, skin and all. When her body completes such a cycle, this rather extended self-portrait will also be complete. Until then, she rolls tape and, as it were, records the passage of time: the flow of people, whatever, whoever sticks. With each change of venue, she reconfigures its components (un-sticking and sticking, adding and plucking), forming different "bonds" each time, creating new relationships between its parts and with its environment, and essentially evolving different works. Every time it “moves” to a new location, it changes in response to its site. Physically and metaphorically, it grows, an allegory of both biological and social adaptation.

For Cut, “Tenuous (tentatively titled)” has evolved to include free-standing and wall-hung packing tape sculptures, some of which have been obsessively trimmed into three-dimensional drawings. With the piece “Factis Black 18 (365)” hundreds of surgically gutted erasers evoke a sprawling landscape, their skeletal frames reminiscent of the destruction wrought by seasonal Los Angeles firestorms.

Reanne Estrada received a B.A. from Harvard in Visual and Environmental Studies. Her work is in the Altoids Curiously Strong Collection, New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, NY; The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, HI, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, CA, and the Oakland Museum of California. She is the recipient of a 2002-03 Artist Fellowship Award for the Visual Arts, California Arts Council, a Wallace Alexander Gerbode Visual Art Award 2002
