This Saturday, December 13th, 2014 (4-6pm), gallery artist Andrew Schoultz will open a solo show of installation and painting at Hosfelt Gallery (San Francisco). Titled “Blown the Bits,” the show debuts vibrant and ambitious new elements in his work that is sure to delight and amaze.
Says the gallery:
Andrew Schoultz’s first solo exhibition at Hosfelt Gallery transforms 7,000 square feet of gallery space with an installation of sculpture, paintings and works on paper that charts a new trajectory in his work.
In this new body of work, Schoultz combines familiar symbols with various conventions of formalism he’s taken from art history to express his dystopian vision. Borders of concentric lines frame these works, representing containment and control while also referring to the margins of Persian miniature paintings and illuminated manuscripts or to modern geometric abstraction. But the frenetic accumulation of lines that make up Schoultz’s narrative imagery explode outward, demolishing the order of the rectilinear composition and shattering the tradition of the picture plane. The title of the show, “Blown to Bits,” alludes to the paradox of positive change – that destruction must precede the creation of something better.
The exhibition will remain on view through January 24, 2015. For more information about the artist, or available works, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
