Valerié Jacobs, “Self-Portrait: The Ledge of Night”, 2004, Charcoal with Hand-Set Type, 22 x 30".
Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to announce a solo show by San Francisco-based artist Valerié Jacobs, and the continuing exhibition of Pharmaka, a group of Los Angeles-based painters, and David E. Stone and Cathy Stone’s site-specific work in the gallery’s Project Windows.
Valerié Jacobs is a San Francisco-based painter and artist in many media. She has been working steadily for over 40 years, exploring the interplay between identity and meaning by using finely crafted symbols derived from culture, politics, and media. At once confrontational and meditative, Jacob’s imagery speaks directly from intuition; a knowledge that relationships are far more complex than they appear.
Pharmaka’s participating artists are Fumiko Amano, Randall Cabe, Christopher Cousins, Stanley Dorfman, Shane Guffogg, Patricia Howard, Tim Isham, Christopher Monger, Ana Osgood, Michael Rosenfeld, Luke Rothschild, John Scane, and Vonn Cummings Sumner.
David E. Stone and Cathy Stone, working independently, have created site-specific installations in the gallery’s Project Windows. Cathy Stone’s installation features sculptural elements that refer to line, volume and gravity. David E. Stone’s work is concerned with the ways in which "realities can be perceived" by way of "specificity" and is manifest using a variety of media.
