Gugger Petter
Reversal of Interest
April 23 – May 30, 2014
Opening Reception: Wednesday, April 23, 5:30 - 7:30 PM

“My focus on this new group of works is based on a more bold and rough execution of these pieces which emphasizes the textured surface and the material. This creates visual tension between texture and image, and a further blurring between representation and abstraction.
-- Gugger Petter

Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition, Reversal of Interest, featuring new work by Gugger Petter opening Wednesday April 23, from 5:30 – 7:30PM.

Danish artist Gugger Petter’s woven newspaper works are inspired by her passion for Renaissance art. In the series “Portrait of a Young Man,” the male subjects reference the style of Renaissance portraiture. While her subjects retain the air and grace of the period, Petter has reversed their gaze to look out onto their audience, connecting them to our world and us.

Gugger Petter’s work has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums both in Europe and in America, and her list of private collectors, permanent collections and commissions is extensive. Most recently, Gugger Petter’s work was exhibited in the Museum of National History, Frederiksborg Castle, in her native Denmark. This is her fourth exhibition with Andrea Schwartz Gallery.

Andrea Schwartz Gallery was established in 1982 and is located in the South of Market district of San Francisco in our new gallery space located at 545 – 4th Street. ASG exhibits contemporary work of mid-career artists from the Bay Area and across the country. ASG is a member of SFADA. Gallery Hours are Monday - Friday 9 - 5, Saturday by appointment. The gallery will be closed 5/24 – 5/26. For further information and materials please contact Jennifer Draughon at 415-495-2090 or [email protected] Additional information may also be found on our website, Thank you!
