Oakland, 94612 United States

SLATE Contemporary is pleased to present ELEMENTAL, a solo exhibition of works by Tobias Tovera. The paintings, sculpture, and soundscape in this show investigate deep time creation and the primordial formations of living matter.  The elemental power of nature is thematic and speaks to the connection between the physical and metaphysical realms, through which new forms are created. Each layer and each new substance that is introduced, is part of an intuitive movement between the artist and the materials themselves:…

Fleshy pinks, candy reds, and iridescent green fat shimmer in these monumental ink drawings. Burke's work often explores the intersection between man-made and natural worlds. The specific inspiration for Meat Candy comes from a personal examination of our meat consumption and production. Like a contemporary twist on a cubist still-life, Burke abstracts and repeats his subject with masterful design that results in graceful, dynamic compositions. These powerful paintings are ironically both appealingly beautiful and grotesque. –Christine Ferrouge Werkshack Curator  …

Join us for the Opening Reception, Saturday, April 30th from 1-4 pm! Five years ago, Santee began a body of work based solely on flower imagery.  Prior to this, the focus of her art was on insect forms.   She began to incorporate plants and flowers into insect themed compositions and her interest in flora took over. Her current creations are surreal anthropomorphic floral characters existing in a human world.  Themes of identity, feminism, strength in the face of the current…

GearBox Gallery Inner Room: Dana DeKalb's paintings in Open Season depict a variety of characters purposefully engaged in a range of joint efforts. Posed diorama-like, the subjects appear to busy themselves with hunting and gathering forays, while encountering unforeseen or miraculous events. Although they are challenged and awed, the subjects seem not to have let it dim their enthusiasm for the task at hand. Each scene captures a moment’s pause in the action: for respite, assessment of the path forward,…

"Ferrouge's Ties and Capes portrays two of the artist's daughters playing dress-up. Both wear men's hats and neckties, with blankets tied around their shoulders as makeshift capes. One of the girls stares out at the viewers with happy confidence; the other straightens her hat, staring off to the left, and lifting her chin in a pout. Neither smiles in the sentimental way of so many conventional images of children. Instead, we see their complex personalities and their playful exploration of…

CHARLIE MILGRIM: PLANE SHAPES

May 27 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

Mercury 20 Gallery, 475 25th Street

While rigor and reason shore up Euclid's logical system of plane geometry, Charlie Milgrim takes a more intuitive approach and renders her own geometric system of the three basic planes—the circle, square, and triangle. In Plane Shapes she creates an association of non-objective paintings and objects in which concentric and eccentric circles—one ordered, one disordered— collide with the linear edges and sharp corners of squares and triangles.

Batgirl and Robin is about friendship that bridges us together from a young age. The best part of a youthful game is the fun we have when we are on the same team looking out for each other. We concoct storylines that unites us against the "bad guys". Memories from this make-believe playtime forms our identities and prepares us for life. In this case, it is also about a true friendship. –Christine Ferrouge, Artist
