“My paintings are bounded surfaces that connect to something larger and their potentially infinite interplay of pattern gives the work energy providing an evocative surprise.”
– John Belingheri
Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition for John Belingheri opening Wednesday, February 6, 2013. John Belingheri’s oil and mixed media paintings on canvas express an interrelationship of form and pattern that creates energy on the surface. Rather than starting from a plan, the paintings evolve from starts and stops and missteps. The lines are static and unpredictable, with worn surfaces of marks and edits. Each painting pulls the viewer closer to a repetitive chant of linear lines and rich colors. Belingheri’s paintings are an abstraction with pattern, which pushes up to the square edges of the canvas to be included in the formalistic demands of the painting. The work is a conscious dialog with a range of collected language from other abstract art. The paintings are minimal and postmodern.
John Belingheri is a Bay Area artist who has exhibited extensively in the United States and abroad. His work is included in both public and private collections throughout the world. He received his MFA and his BFA from Brigham Young University in 1981 and 1976 respectively.
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 1 – 5. The gallery will be closed 2/16 – 2/18. For further information and materials please contact Jennifer Draughon at 415-495-2090 or [email protected]
