Continuum a Print and Tribute Exhibition

The Telegraph Hill Gallery will extend CONTINUUM, a print exhibition and tribute to Thierry Rosset featuring selected works by Rosset, Jenny Robinson and Seiko Tachibana, to 23 May 2014. The three San Francisco Bay Area artists, colleagues and friends have distinguished themselves in the field of printmaking, each with a distinct style and body of work. On display are Rosset’s linocuts from his early to last works bridging Tachibana’s organic-themed etchings and Robinson’s industrial-inspired monoprints.

Rosset’s linocut works reflected the years spent in Asia as well as summers spent by the sea in Normandy, France. “Yin and Yang, vortex, ebb, tides, and patterns in nature fostered my research and conveyed feelings and concepts around impermanence and stillness. In this framework, I aimed to provoke a dialogue or perhaps a rejection between lines and shapes; intrigued by and interested in the tension created.”

Robinson’s artwork has always been informed by her immediate environment. Her subject matter includes industrial structures (from billboards to London gasometers). “These structures display a sense of strength and energy; but threatened by the passage of time to ultimate defeat by corrosion and decay. My work is concerned with depicting how these giant structures appear, without the yearning for the past, but by responding to location and documenting how they appear in the moment.”

Tachibana’s work balances Japanese tradition with minimalist modernity. She surveys the life cycle of a fern plant, dependent upon spores for dispersal, and captures its transformation creating an organic image. “A central theme in my artwork is based on the concept that many small pieces come together to make up a larger whole. I explore sources of life and I like to compare the marks, lines, shapes, colors, and textures, basic language of her work, to living cells.”
