a solo show • “Beyond Fire and Smoke”
A selection of never before exhibited major paintings along with a selection of small painting studies by Erik ReeL. Having evacuated during the recent Thomas Fire, ReeL presents a group of images emphasizing hope and the richness of our perception. The show represents a further exploration of his inquiry into non-objective imagery and interest in cognitive processing.
in the GraySpace Annex • “Works on Paper”
“Bricoleur: a handyman who has a limited set of tools that he uses to solve any problem, and his way of thinking and working is… somewhere between scientific method and the magical method.”
—Claude Levi Strauss – The Savage Mind
“I work mainly in collage and assemblage, and just recently have been revisiting painting and printmaking. I am continually amazed and intrigued with how the marriage of often disparate scraps of paper and found objects can give form to that which is intangible—memory, dreams, faith, and wonder. I try to imbue my work with the reverent attitude of serious play done in a playfully serious way,” says Dug Uyesaka.
