Rupert Garcia: Rolling Thunder

January 6, 2018 - February 24, 2018
Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present Rupert Garcia: Rolling Thunder, an exhibition of paintings and prints by renowned Bay Area based American artist Rupert Garcia. Since the late sixties, Garcia has been committed to creating artwork addressing urgent issues of our time, voicing concerns over the desperate consequences of social and political injustice and deceit, as well as raising questions about the pretenses of aesthetic conventions. In strikingly bold graphics, often coopting the mechanics of pop art and culture, his recent work elaborates on his political concerns, and challenges notions of folk and high art. Image: Rupert Garcia: Rolling Thunder, 2017, mixed media on paper Rolling Thunder, a survey of five decades of work, exposes his continual use of war imagery and suggests the impact of Mr. Garcia’s service in the Vietnam War and direct involvement in a secret US military bombing campaign known as Operation Rolling Thunder. This is the first time Mr. Garcia’s work has been assembled to specifically illuminate the impact of his participation in the Vietnam War, and the first time Mr. Garcia has publicly acknowledged his participation in Operation Rolling Thunder.

Angelina Pwerle
260 Utah Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
January 27, 2018 - March 10, 2018
Angelina Pwerle’s subtly shifting, abstract paintings come out of a history of Aboriginal art-making that is thousands of years old. Yet audiences of contemporary art will find reference points in the spatial complexity of Jackson Pollock, optical intensity of Bridget Riley, technical elegance of Vija Celmins or meditative process of Agnes Martin. Using the fine point of a bamboo stick, Pwerle paints masses of minute, individual dots that float, cloud-like, on a colored ground, shifting and vibrating within an indeterminate spatial plane, to depict the Bush Plum Dreaming narrative. To Aboriginal people, “Dreaming” describes not only the creation of the earth and every life form, but provides the framework for human experience in the universe and the harmonious order of all things. The Bush Plum is a shrub found in dry Northern and Central Australia that because of its significance as a food source, is a totem with an associated Dreaming story. Pwerle’s representation of that narrative – formally sophisticated and dazzlingly transcendent — goes beyond cultural specificity, ethnographic stereotype or art historical precedent — to describe our place in the universe. Angelina Pwerle was born in 1946 in Utopia, Australia – Aboriginal freehold land north east of Alice Springs. Her paintings are in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland; and The National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan. This is Pwerle’s second solo exhibition at Hosfelt Gallery.

 
Birgit Jensen
What a Perfect Combination
260 Utah Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
January 27, 2018 - March 10, 2018
In her first solo exhibition in the United States, German artist Birgit Jensen looks to the history of the landscape in painting to examine the role of artifice in our never-ending pursuit of perfection. Made without a brush, Jensen’s paintings are meticulously and labor-intensively constructed to look as if they were created digitally. The “hand” of the artist is completely invisible. Superseding the brushstroke, Jensen applies multiple layers of screened paint to represent the pixilated matrices that compose digital imagery – the signifier of the electronic and impeccable. Referring primarily to the woodcuts of the Edo Period Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai, but also to the 19th century Romantic, Caspar David Friedrich, as well as Vija Celmins, Thomas Ruff and Gerhard Richter, Jensen’s paintings appear at first to be realistic representations of nature. But they are in fact poetic constructs, composed of many images and places stitched together to create the illusion of an ideal. For Jensen and her predecessors, such imagined theatricality is a stratagem for seducing the viewer and transporting them toward the sublime. Jensen is interested in exploring the shift away from the physical and the natural toward the manufactured and virtual, as more and more aspects of our lives are constructed or designed, and more and more knowledge is gained through media instead of reality or experience. This move looks likely to accelerate. And as that paradigm changes, so do our notions of the meaning of perfection, the ideal and the transcendent.
