Luna Rienne Gallery is pleased to present Light Years, a two-person show featuring artists Sarah Coleman and Aleksandra Zee.
Opening Reception Saturday, June 1, 6-9PM
Showing through July 8, 2013
Addressing all forms of light, this exhibition seeks to transform the viewer’s perception of space, both physical and intergalactic, in the new age of planetary exploration. Sarah Coleman, a painter who focuses on atmosphere, explores a new technique using mirrors and glass to depict the starry cosmos. Aleksandra Zee is an artist who creates 3D objects integrating reclaimed materials and lights to transform an immediate environment.
Light Years will be design-driven, as both Coleman and Zee have practical experience in the use of craftsman materials to create functional objects of whimsical beauty.
Sarah Coleman grew up in various climates across Texas, Minnesota, and California, always recognizing how each landscape possessed a unique mood and sky. These early life experiences influenced her interest in the emotional and intellectual impacts of atmosphere, weather, and illusion. Coleman studied art at UC Santa Cruz, then moved to San Francisco to pursue art. Eight years ago she left in search of gold, and now stargazes in Nevada City CA.
Aleksandra Zee hails from Southern California. Her art objects are made from found and repurposed materials, primarily reclaimed lumber, and range in scale from small interventions to entire room distortions. She explores the transcendence of these harsh, broken, and discarded materials into objects of soft whimsy that cause the viewer to lose him/herself in the altered environment. She lives and works in San Francisco.
Light Years will be on exhibit from June 1 to July 8 at Luna Rienne Gallery, 3318 22nd Street near Valencia in San Francisco. Formerly known as fabric8, Luna Rienne features visual artists working in contemporary mediums who integrate elements of urban culture with traditional techniques.
