Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by San Francisco-based artist Erica Deeman (b. 1977, Nottingham, UK). In her second solo exhibition at the gallery, entitled "Familiar Stranger" (a reference to Stuart Hall’s Autobiography, "Familiar Stranger: A Life Between Two Islands"), Deeman forges a pathway between photography and sculpture, sharing 15 intimate self-portraits rendered in Cassius Obsidian clay. In this new series, Deeman continues her reflections on diasporic and transnational movements, Black permanence and the nuance of cultural identity.
In "Familiar Stranger", Deeman turns the camera on herself for the first time creating portraits and processes that explore transfiguration and the overlapping and fluidity of identity. Black and white photographs are rendered into unique, abstracted, hand-made self-portraits in clay with the aid of 3D-printing techniques. For Deeman, the clay not only represents the land but a sense of belonging. The black clay sculptures reflect back contrast and detail in its darkness - a visible tension between time, technology, and the creative technique.

Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by San Francisco painter Richard Hoblock.
Hoblock’s second solo exhibition at the gallery features a body of work rich in layered abstraction, juxtaposing bold and pastel hues. Working with both a paint brush and pallete knife, Hoblock frames broad, curving strokes with thick, built-up oil paint. Deep excavations reveal rich tones behind the topcoat; the displaced paint remains on the surface in a nod to history’s abstract expressionists.
Hoblock received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1978 from the University New Hampshire, Durham, NH and a Masters of Fine Arts degree in 1998 from the University of California, Los Angeles, CA. He has had solo exhibitions at 295 Artspace, Orient, NY; Anthony Meier Fine Arts, San Francisco, CA; Kim Light Lightbox Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; The Los Angeles Billboard Project, Los Angeles, CA, and Chimento Contemporary, Los Angeles, CA. His work is in the collection of University of California’s Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
