Brian Gross Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of “GESTURE/COLOR/FORM”, on Saturday, September 10th, from 3:00 – 5:30pm.  The exhibition explores the power of line, shape, and color, to convey meaning and to create sublime aesthetic experiences.  The exhibition includes paintings, sculpture, and photoworks by Peter Alexander, Robert Arneson, Karl Benjamin, Tony Berlant, Marco Casentini, Freddy Chandra, Roy De Forest, Willem de Looper, Sue Dirksen, Donald Feasél, Michelle Fierro, Linda Fleming, Teo González, Dana Hart-Stone, Robert Hudson, Mary Ijichi, Cheonae Kim, Keira Kotler, Mokha Laget, Gary Lang, Pard Morrison, Ed Moses, Sono Osato, Ruth Pastine, Johnnie Winona Ross, Meridel Rubenstein, Robert Sagerman, Paul Sarkisian, Phil Sims, Leo Valledor, Andrea Way, and Rex Yuasa.  The works in the exhibition reveal the expansive range of abstract styles and representational forms employed by this wide swath of gallery artists. 

Among the works making their gallery exhibition debuts are Leo Valledor’s monumental, multi-part painting “Big Chief”; Robert Arneson’s “All American” ceramic mask, which was his last fired work; a glorious polychromed welded steel sculpture by Bay Area legend Robert Hudson; an electric yellow cast urethane wedge sculpture by Peter Alexander; Sono Osato’s intricately painted triptych “Diluvia 1”; an evocative new stain painting by Donald Feasél; Dana Hart-Stone’s optically charged, digitally collaged tondo “Squeeze Box”; two luminous drawing assemblages by Mary Ijichi; the vibrantly painted color study “Inevitability of Truth 7” by Ruth Pastine; and a seductive group of resin-based works on panel dating from 1998-2005 by the late Paul Sarkisian.  Other highlights in the exhibition include the dynamic “Photosynthesis Leaf Grid” by Meridel Rubenstein; an expansive mythical landscape drawing by Roy De Forest; a large black and white painting by Teo González created using his trademark veil of hundreds of painted dots; and “18,230”, a dynamic work comprised of thousands of dollops of oil paint laid in swirling patterns by Robert Sagerman.

The exhibition will be on view through November 5, 2022.
