Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 4, 5:30 - 7:30

Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition featuring recent landscapes by Ferdinanda Florence and Wynne Hayakawa.

“My approach is not one of addition – only subtraction. Options are eliminated, details deleted and suppressed. What is left offers a visual resistance...”

– Ferdinanda Florence

Ferdinanda Florence’s paintings are emphatically physical, admittedly quiet, and above all pensive. Unlike her previous series which variably focused on the city of Vallejo, her two recent bodies of work Orange Equipment and VELPCo solely focus on two particular buildings, which stand-alone as sentinels in the town. The structures are not adjacent or connected to any other building; they are freestanding with nothing immediately in their vicinity to offer support. Her buildings or totems grip the ground like an old cathedral.

“We live our lives largely inside buildings. I hope to create places where we can exist for a long while among the trees.”

– Wynne Hayakawa

Wynne Hayakawa paints to convey her sense of the natural world. Her most recent paintings are a photographic glimpse of the forests in Northern California. With her camera Hayakawa takes to the forests and captures the essence of walking among the trees. She utilizes a slow shutter speed resulting in an abstracted image mainly consisting of light and dark forms. Hayakawa uses these images to begin her painting process with an impressionistic and layered interplay of colors, lights, flatness, and space.
