NEW WORK BY
ALISHA GREEN & FRANK CALLOZZO
FRIDAY, JULY 23, 2010 7:30 - 10:30 PM
Painters Alisha Green and Frank Callozzo both make abstract geometric work but their personal approach varies from inception to result. Their recent work will be shown together highlighting their diverse range of expression through line, form, and color.
Alisha Green turned to geometric abstraction to cut through the chaos and complexity of previous work and she now focuses on reducing shapes to abstract interpretation. Her recent pieces, which include a wall painting, prints, and oil on canvas, were made through a deductive logic, hypnotically stripped-down. Alisha Green’s linear motifs are made of thin lines inscribing space and outlining a subtle animation of geometric form.
Frank Callozzo's body of work, made primarily between February 2010 through July, has been an exploration in forms. Frank approached the concept of geometric abstraction from a place of intuition, relaxed experimentation, and methods that came in the moment. Frank's visual and cultural research into folk textiles, folk and tribal pattern making, and self taught visionary art work has informed his body of work a great deal.
The one night show will be held on Friday, July 23, from 7:30 - 10:30 pm with complimentary wine and tea service at the artist's residence at 19 Abbey Street, San Francisco - 3 blocks from 16th Street BART.
