Ramekon O’Arwisters heads into the summer of 2021 with his residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts. PSG is looking forward to following this residency with a Fall solo exhibition of his fiber/ceramic sculpture that’s been brewing in the studio for the past 3 years. Decked out and embellished, these sculptures embody the couture of drag, the rich history of African American quilting, the colors of tribal affiliation, the ceramics of the artists and students of CSULB, all mixed and transformed into a vibrant and dangerous collusion of material and ideas. Stay tuned for events around the exhibition and if we’re ever so lucky maybe even an in-person opening!!

Helen O’Leary | Studio Visit

In the maelstrom that is Helen O’Leary’s studio emerges some of the most striking constructed, ripped, stapled, dyed, fragmented sculpture imaginable. It is this gallery’s great pleasure to host this remarkable artist in an installation reflecting her recent work during her Rome Prize as well as the meanderings and meanings of this past pandemic year. Can’t wait to see!!!

Gravity 2 | 2020 | oil on canvas stretched over wood | 16.5 x 11 inches

The incredible high profile paintings of Cornelia Schulz are whipped into heights or flattened into compliance. Constructed on shaped wood panels the oil paint is balanced between the structure and surface.

Kenneth Baker, SF Chronicle, “Schulz treats the outer contours of a painting as a troubled boundary between what she could control and the uncontrollable, between domains of intended meaning and of misreading and chance.”

detail (work in progress)

 
Aware of the religious and cultural ideologies associated with painting, Lien Truong’s work tests the hybridity and historic hierarchies of painting techniques, materials and philosophies from the “West” and Asia. She subverts color and values, staging a background layered with singed panels of painted floating silk and carefully blended gestures of oil paint, amidst interpretations of historic textile patterns and hegemonic iconography.
