  Reed Danziger
September 10 - October 10, 2009
 

San Francisco-based painter Reed Danziger creates densely patterned paintings in a distinct palette combining visual motifs from the man-made and natural worlds. These include floral and leaf forms, star-burst clusters, and snowflake configurations, as well as geometric and linear patterns drawn from scientific and architectural schema, along with abstracted motifs that reference textiles, stained glass, and lace, among others. Set against oblique grounds of scumbled and stained pigments, the various forms coalesce, overlap and evolve into one another as the eye travels through her compositions. Several paintings in the exhibition are larger in scale than in her previous bodies of work; nevertheless, they remain fully loaded with visual information. Horizontal panels generally reference landscape, but these are neither placid nor bucolic environments. Instead there is the suggestion of intense movement and upheaval, akin to fiercely blowing winds or crashing waves. Movement dominates these works, with shooting bands of stripes and DNA-like strands flowing off the edges of the compositions, reinforcing the idea that the artist has captured but a small sampling of the multitude of information traveling through our visual universe.
