San Diego Mesa College Art Gallery hosts this exhibition of pictorial and sculptural investigations on color, light and texture, featuring recent artworks by San Diego-based artists Christian Garcia-Olivo, Kaori Fukuyama and Melissa Walter. The advent of Modernism inspired artists to explore abstraction and in the 20th century painters were motivated to pursue explorations with a variety of media in order to capture both the material and the immaterial. Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings, physically vigorous in form and action, can be contrasted with the ethereal rigor of perceptual light works by the Southern California Light and Space movement of the 60s and 70s; and to the interest on phenomenology of some conceptual art. The three artists whose works are assembled together in "The Weight of Color", "The Shape of Light", delve into these legacies; there’s a push and pull of the picture plane, a celebration of both organic and synthetic pigments while surface and materials are manipulated in novel and unexpected ways. These artists manipulate paint and pigments in novel and unexpected ways: Shaped canvases vibrate in contrasting colors; paint becomes solid like skin and thread; pulverized lava dust shaped into words.

Gallery hours: M,T,W 12 - 5 pm, TH 12 am - 7 pm or by appointment.

Closed Fridays, Weekends and School Holidays.
