Revealing for the first time in a comprehensive multi-media exhibition her masterful eye for composition and fluency across a vast range of media, Annie Tull fearlessly explores themes of identity, vitality and decay through oil, charcoal, and other means in her upcoming solo show, Personal Cathedrals, on view at Hôtel Biron March 19 through May 19, 2019.
Tull collects objects of her everyday - scrap materials from commercial projects, bits of nature culled from her gardens, intriguing baubles she comes across in hardware stores, thrift shops, and elsewhere - and pairs them with traditional media like oil paint, charcoal and ink to create nuanced vignettes of the emotional and mental states we visit.
The rich intensity of emotion in works with names such as Authenticity is Terrifying and I Am Not My Body makes this a collection not to be overlooked. Spanning the mediums of painting, drawing, collage, assemblage and installation, the art of Personal Cathedrals digs at the heart of what drives our perception of ourselves and begs us to examine the boxes we choose for ourselves and others - where they lead us, and where they leave us.
Please join Hôtel Biron and Annie Tull for an Opening Reception on Thursday, March 21, 2019, from 6-10pm. The artist will be present to discuss her exploratory, multi-media approach to art making. All original works are available for purchase. For a preview of the work, to request a list of exhibited works, or for general information, please contact the artist, Annie Tull (415.481.2046 / [email protected] / https://www.annietull.com). Personal Cathedrals opens March 19 and remains on view through May 19, 2019 at Hôtel Biron, 45 Rose Street, San Francisco, California.
