The Changing Cityscape

The Changing Cityscape

April 28, 2018 - May 28, 2018

Despite the fact both Anthony Holdsworth and Beryl Landau have exhibited work for decades, The Changing Cityscape will be their very first dual show featuring San Francisco landscapes. Their styles present an interesting contrast in approach to a similar subject matter: the constantly evolving San Francisco skyline and neighborhoods.

While Holdsworth paints plein air, Landau works from photographs that she has taken. Holdsworth uses oil while Landau prefers acrylic. And Holdsworth attempts to capture the vibe of a particular place -- Landau evokes a feeling about it. The couple met in 1980 during an SFAI alumni show at SOMArts Gallery, when both were more evidently influenced by Bay Area Figurative Art. Through time and experience, they have each developed a signature style.

Year of the Dog

Year of the Dog

March 24, 2018 - April 23, 2018

Year Of The Dog features 100 original drawings by UK-born, Northern California-based Gillette, who created the series over the course of a year and is now, aptly, exhibiting them at the beginning of the Chinese Year Of The Dog.

The idea began when Gillette found a box of vintage dog greeting cards at a local Goodwill. He drew over the top of them as an act of continuation/vandalism and found it tremendously enjoyable. He decided to draw his own dogs, and had Electric Works print batches of them with archival ink for his eventual series. Evolving organically, his drawings portray musical icons, youth subcultures, religious figures, and more.

Invisible Places

Invisible Places

November 18, 2017 - December 18, 2017

Invisible Places explores two artistic directions that Ording has pursued in her body of work. First is her signature line work, which she evolves with the use of brighter hues as well as color washes over coffee-dyed paper. Ording’s other series focuses on abstract landscapes, which render dreamy ethereal places that may not really exist. With these latest pieces, she explores weather and movement.

Wildflower Child

Wildflower Child

November 18, 2017 - December 18, 2017

Wildflower Child is an homage to both the Victorian fairy illustrations and paintings that Ursula Young grew up with in England and the colorful free-spirited love vibrations that were present 50 years ago during San Francisco’s Summer of Love. She provides a modern-day interpretation of the whimsical drawings against a Northern Califorinia background with an emphasis on the wildflowers abundant after the wettest winter in recent history.

Crossed Lines

Crossed Lines

October 14, 2017 - November 13, 2017

Crossed Lines blurs the boundaries between art and design, as well as between mediums, through a heavy use of line by each of the artists. While born, raised, and based in different cities their styles speak to each other and to a contemporary international aesthetic.

Visions Collide

Visions Collide

September 9, 2017 - October 9, 2017

Visions Collide explores the sources of dreamlike visions that stir the creative conscious. Some are encountered as we move through the world through serendipity, gifts of life and points of interest as we move through our lived experiences. Some are products of the mind, that visit us both invited and unannounced, revealing themselves at varying rates of consciousness whether or not they are welcome.

Bowen, Guy, and Loucheur manifest these multifarious visions in their own unique styles with this exhibition. Each of these artists takes disparate elements and puts them together in some sort of union that speaks metaphorically and emotionally to the viewer via inclusion, juxtaposition, and exploration.

Summer Series

Summer Series

August 26, 2017 - September 4, 2017

Started in June 2017, Stattmiller created the Summer Series as a break from his usual art-making process. Coming from an illustration background, his paintings had always been planned out in sketchbooks and then painted with precision. With this show he loosens up his process and experiments with different materials, compositions, and colors.

Each of the works is done freestyle aside from the parameters of scale and time – they are all 8 x 8 inches and completed in one day. Painting materials included tube acrylic, latex, fluorescent, markers, metallic ink, and enamel. Stattmiller began each one by laying down a random color and medium, and then let each piece evolve on its own.

Familiar Places

Familiar Places

July 8, 2017 - August 7, 2017

Familiar Places features Tan’s latest body of work, including fine art canvases depicting in San Francisco’s Mission District. Coming from a background in graffiti art and lettering, Tan’s style has grown to include series of cityscapes that document the changes in the city through a native’s perspective. In particular, the postcard image of Thrift Town laments the loss of a long-time retail instititution.

Mission Lake

Mission Lake

July 8, 2017 - August 7, 2017

Luna Rienne Gallery is pleased to present Mission Lake, a solo exhibition featuring San Francisco artist Anthony Holdsworth.

Mission Lake showcases Holdsworth’s recent series of small-scale plein air paintings depicting San Francisco’s Mission District. The show title is taken from his image of the vacant lot at the corner of 22nd and Mission Streets where, until last year, there was a massive mixed-use building that housed 62 long-term tenants and nearly a dozen small local retail businesses.

A fixture on the San Francisco and Oakland streets since the 1980s, Holdsworth strives to paint things that represent the reality in which we live. In the past five years, he has focused on the Mission because he truly appreciates and wishes to celebrate the neighborhood’s strong sense of community as well as its roots in Latino culture, having painted in Mexico, Nicaragua, and Cuba.
