"CrossOver - 2 Artists, 6 degrees of Separation" is a collaboration between Reddy Lieb and Jennifer Ewing. Each artist has cross-pollinated each other's approach to express the ways we are all connected. Their art is designed around a continuum of lines that are the underlying energies that hold all things together in a common space.
Through their exploration of painting, sculpture, and mixed media pieces; created and inspired by recycled materials: mirrors, paper, plastic and string, they are crossing over any boundaries of separation to express the greater whole.
The artists have collaborated recently on "Currents", a 2015 exhibition at the China Brotsky Gallery in the SF Presidio using repurposed materials to inspire their work. They meet regularly to critique their work and share new concepts for exploration. Both artists are passionate about reusing found materials in their art and in their concerns for the health of the planet.
Reddy Lieb has created a wall of paintings and mixed media pieces that includes both abstract and realistic imagery, old and new, opposite forces that coalesce into a whole. Everything is connected...even seemingly random and unrelated materials, or concerns.
Jennifer Ewing continues her work with the symbol of the Spirit Boat as a metaphor for passage. In this exhibit she has created a large ship that pulls along a trail of plastic debris that references our tragic and growing Sea of Plastic. Her smaller sculptures are inspired by Christo's technique of wrapping subjects and are made using light fixtures that become mysterious yet familiar feeling objects.
This show opens May 18th and runs through July 13th, 2018.
