Reflections — Jane B Grimm & Rachel Major — GearBox Gallery – Artists Reception

December 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for the Artists Reception for Reflections, an exhibition of ceramics by Jane B Grimm and paintings by Rachel Major. Repetition and abstraction bring these two Bay Area artists into formal dialogue. Grimm pushes the material possibilities of clay to build sinuous reliefs and textured forms inspired by plants, invertebrate sea life and music.

Major addresses the power and mythology of meat and its traditional connotations of men as powerful for example: as hunters, carvers, grillers, and women as weak, for example as expressed in language (chick, (fat) cow, (old) crow). Major’s fluid and overlapping silhouettes of hanging game build evocative patterns and challenge traditional representations of power. Major and Grimm mirror and complement each other’s work with their graceful forms and supple compositions made in paint and clay.
