Using ink, handwriting, found objects, the stuff of dreams, and whatever is at hand, her work is driven by a need to dialog with the unconscious. She seeks to integrate the dark and divine parts of psyche and finds that the encounter of hand with matter induces a dream state, where ego is left behind and error provides a roadmap to becoming all that one is.
Point Guild is an art collective comprised of two multidisciplinary artists, Staci Page and Cristine Posner, whose work incorporates intensive field operations and investigates where and how human and environmental systems collide. Transmittance is an art installation, rendered by collaborative adaptation and memory, transforming their recent field research into a sensorial map of inquiry and discovery to be engaged by the viewer.
Larger Than Life is an exhibit of three large-scale, limited varied-edition portraits of Robin Williams made with hand drawn and cut cardboard stencils and spray-paints. At the time of William’s death, the artist, Xander Weaver-Scull, was struck by a profound note of loss along with gratitude for the joy, laughter, and tears inspired by the actor’s transcendent humanity.When the rainbow tunnel on Highway 101 was renamed the Robin Williams Tunnel, the idea clicked into place to make a large-scale portrait of Robin and to sneak in late at night and stencil his face on the tunnel. However, after beginning the piece, Weaver-Scull discovered that the tunnel is federal land, and getting caught installing this project would be considered a federal offense and could prevent him from ever teaching in public schools again.
Gallery Route One is open 11 AM – 5 PM every day except Tuesday.
