8-BRIDGES | JANUARY 2022
Ranging in mediums from exposures on gelatin silver photo paper, to reclaimed wood lath constructions, woven linen, and layered painting and drawing on canvas, Rachelle Bussières, Blaise Rosenthal, Susie Taylor and Andy Vogt explore repetition, light, elemental materials, and a play on dimensionality. Beyond materials and process, this group draws our attention to an open and varied landscape where an endless possibility of sight lines and visual experiences can be imagined. It also alludes to the idea of “planes of abstraction” where new and open-ended visual languages provide a way of examining the endless potentials of conscious reality.
Eight bridges connect the San Francisco Bay, so it is an apt name for a gallery platform that brings the Bay Area art world together. Our mission is to maintain a vibrant gallery scene, despite restrictions on travel, celebrations and other larger gatherings. On the first Thursday of every month, we will launch 8 shows of artists relevant to the Bay Area.
