Five artists — Barbara Boissevain, Sukey Bryan, Lauren Elder, Ethan Estess, and Sarah Newton — present works demonstrating a sea change is needed to magically transform that nest-fouling species, Homo sapiens.
Here Is the Sea and Faces Without Noses, a pair of Richmond Art Center exhibitions, examine environmental and aesthetic themes. Nature and culture, again, do their eternal parallel-evolution dance, seen through sociopolitical/informational and aesthetic/poetic filters. It’s style-plus-content art that looks good and is good for us.
The El Cerrito painter and assemblage artist, who will be part of the Love Our Island Art Walk on April 12 in Alameda, turns to subject matter driven by everyday things: nature, discarded/found items, architecture, and the weather.
