Open Tues - Sat 12PM - 7PM
Jonathan Darby and Adam Caldwell
White Walls is pleased to present Intersection, a dual exhibition of new work by Bay Area artist Adam Caldwell, and the UK’s Jonathan Darby. This will be the first major project at White Walls for each artist, and they have been hard at work creating an impressive selection of paintings, and original installation work for the exhibition. The opening reception will be Saturday, June 11, from 7-11 pm, and the exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through July 2.
The exhibition positions the work of two painters from seemingly disparate artistic backgrounds, to meet at the one point where they cross over: their deeply anthropological investigations of contemporary culture. This place of intersection is the point of departure for each artist, with Caldwell piecing together fragments of American life – the good, the bad, the hard-to-grasp; and Darby continuing to probe the stories behind the inhabitants of Brazil’s impoverished favela (slum) communities. By placing these works side-by-side in the gallery, the artists provide the viewers with a platform for reinvestigation of two cultures, each with their own realities of absence and excess.
