"Also referencing the unique surface of a natural material, was Alex Rasmussen’s Lunar Console Table, presented by Edward Cella Art & Architecture. This mysterious console made entirely of anodized aluminum, is one of Rasmussen’s limited edition functional works where he has experimented with manufacturing processes to create innovative aluminum textures. Inspired by the experimental blue works of French post-war artist Yves Klein, Rasmussen manipulated a satellite image of the moon to create a loose interpretation of its surface. In order to keep it from feeling too literal, he used a high-tech digital program that took a compressed version of the image and converted it into a texture that was then applied to the surface."Download Article (PDF)

Experiments in Environment: The Halprin Workshops 1966-1971
January 21 - May 1, 2016
Opening reception: Thursday, January 21, 5-8pm
How do you perceive the environment?
In the summer of 1966, renowned American landscape architect Lawrence Halprin (1916–2009) and his wife, dance pioneer Anna Halprin (born 1920), began a series of experimental, cross-disciplinary workshops in northern California that offered a new approach to environmental awareness. Drawn from architecture, ecology, music, cinematography, graphics, choreography, and lighting, Experiments in Environment brought together artists, dancers, architects, and environmental designers in avant-garde environmental arts experiences.

David Hicks and Chris Trueman: New Works at Edward Cella Art & Architecture
January 30 - May 5, 2016
"The two-person show format is at its best when an inspiredpairing across time, genre, medium, or era illuminates its components through the alchemy of unlikely allegiance. Such is the curatorial directive behind the arrangement of painter Chris Trueman and sculptor David Hicks, whose juxtaposition highlights, as the press materials gamely assert, the degree to which 'Hicks sculpts with painterliness; and Trueman paints sculpturally.'"Download Article (PDF)

George Legrady: Day & Night at Edward Cella Art & Architecture
December 12 - January 23, 2016
"Lenticular printing, a process that involves fusing multiple photographs into a single frame, creates a shimmering image that shifts based on the viewer’s position in space. Typically used for advertisements, the effect teeters precariously on the edge of kitsch, but Legrady approaches the process cinematically, pivoting it towards interactivity, nostalgia, and displacement."Download Article (PDF)

"Ask any of the exhibitors at the FOG Design+Art fair about what makes this particular aesthetic celebration special, and the response is likely to be quick and nearly unanimous: it’s so uniquely San Francisco.
For the third year in a row, this four-day event – a collaboration with the San Francisco Musuem of Modern Art (SFMOMA) – sees galleries from across the US (centered, perhaps predictably, in San Fran and New York, with representation from LA, DC, Philadelphia, and Seattle), as well as London, Paris, and Mexico City, bring everything from small, take-homeable trinkets, to hands-on craft and highly polished installations, to the city’s Fort Mason Festival Pavilion. This mix of mediums across a range of creative eras makes for an eclectic selection that’s delightful as eye candy, but also demands a deeper look."Download Article (PDF)
