UNTITLED gallery

Untitled gallery is proud to present the newest collection of works by San Francisco artists Kate Nichols and Paz de la Calzada, Traces from November 15th through January 5th.

Haunting and ethereal, San Francisco artists, Kate Nichols and Paz de la Calzada, showcase their latest work in Traces. Addressing the body as a "site without distinct boundaries," Nichols and Calzada work to restructure that which is neither tamed nor bestial.

Physicality, sense of time, and place dissolve and are held in suspension in Nichols' paintings of bodies in beds. Traces highlights notions of order and chaos as Calzada reworks our visual and associative familiarity with female hair—interrogating the human narrative as it straddles the urban and the bucolic. Both Nichols and Calzada implicate their personal realities as they ask us to confront our own. In doing so, Calzada brings us a penetrating, often taunting, critique into our own constructed chaos. Nichols embraces this chaotic ambiguity as well, envisioning the body as occupying a state that is at once grounded in the sensual and hovering in the transcendental.

Kate Nichols is a classically trained painter with a keen interest in the physics and chemistry of color. She has exhibited in several group exhibitions and one solo show in Los Angeles. Nichols lives in San Francisco.

Paz de la Calzada - originally from Madrid, Spain - has exhibited work in Europe, Mexico, and across the United States. In 2004, she began an art residency program at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, CA and has recently finished a residency at the Millay Colony for the Arts in NY. Now living in San Francisco's Mission District, Calzada's work continues to be informed by her current urban landscape.


Untitled gallery is located in the heart of downtown Sausalito. Run by Sonoma painter/sculptor Nathan Wong in conjunction with McCloud designs, Untitled is a space created by artists for artists. We are committed to the exhibition of vital, complex and thought-provoking contemporary art of emerging and established artists. Driven by the belief that artistic expression can manifest itself via various mediums and techniques, Untitled strives to affirm these distinct and multifarious forms.
