MARC KATANO// NEW WORK ON ARTSY

Our newest exhibition, Marc Katano: Outside Voice is up on Artsy! Through the use of large tarps, Katano redirects his meditative practice of painting by scaling his work beyond the human body.

At the Art Museum of Sonoma County, Marc Katano debuts his signature abstractions on 9×12 foot tarps, alongside works on handmade Nepalese paper.

Check out his latest work on our site, or in person. The physical exhibition is up at Museums of Sonoma County through April 30th.

CHRIS MCCAW AT HAINES GALLERY// TIME AND TIDES

In his latest exhibition, Time and Tides, Chris McCaw continues to use multiple lenses or exposures to explore the mark making process. He continues to document the passage of the sun, using a rotating, 1913 Cirkut camera to capture panoramic images that mark time. Another body of work focuses on tidal changes on the San Francisco Bay, which he shoots with an Ansel Adams-style view camera. He invites us to consider time and space.

The exhibition has been extended to run through May 20th at Haines Gallery (49 Geary Street, Fifth Floor, San Francisco, CA 94108).

The Art Museum of Sonoma County’s Outside Voice: Tarp Paintings by Marc Katano debuts his most recent series of signature abstractions on 9 x 12 foot canvas tarps. A half dozen painted tarps stretch across the gallery walls. Here, Katano’s gestures reach wider and taller than the scale of the human body. Exhibited alongside works on handmade Nepalese paper, Katano’s paintings consider mark-making, and may remind the viewer of the visual language of Japanese kanji, based on Chinese characters.
