Next up at Shooting Gallery in SF is A Well-Marked Path, featuring new works by Oakland-based artist, Lauren Napolitano. Within this new body of work, expect an interesting installation from Napolitano, as her practice involves painting on found objects. Over 80 items are planned for the exhibition that will illustrate her influences – from traditional Mexican baskets and pottery to the deep-seated tradition of folk-art interspersed with a healthy nod toward the Mission-School aesthetic – all evident within her pattern based work. Antique porcelain dolls, hydroponic bulbs, antique bottles, newsprint, book pages, altered cabinet card photos, acacia plant pollen filters and even an old suede jacket will all have her delicate touch added for the show.
The opening reception will be Saturday, October 12, and runs until November 2, 2013. Check out the below preview images, courtesy of the artist, below.
