Springtime for Art: Four SF Gallery Shows to SeeAuthor:Lindsey Shook
It certainly feels like spring in the SF art world this week, with internationally renowned color fiend Markus Linnenbrink showing a brilliant batch of new work at Patricia Sweetow Gallery, and big-league art dealer George Krevsky hosting his annual tribute to the start of baseball season. Don’t miss these, plus exciting new work by painter Douglas Schneider and surrealism-leaning local photographer Michael Garlington.
Markus Linnenbrink, at Patricia Sweetow Gallery
Markus Linnenbrink’s transfixing works are eye candy of a world-class variety. Reveling in process and finish, they are the product of so many layers of poured and pooled resin in terrifically bright color. At times the artist allows his surfaces to remain glossy and opaque; in others they are translucent or even cavitary, exposing underlying wooden supports or unexpected treasures, like family photographs or reflective foil. A new exhibition by this artist, whose work has been collected by the likes of SFMOMA, the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and many institutions throughout Europe, is not to be missed.
Markus Linnenbrink runs from April 4 through May 18 at Patricia Sweetow Gallery (77 Geary Street, Mezzanine). Opening Reception: Thursday, April 4 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm
