"Absence - Present." RECEPTION: Thursday June 5th,

EXHIBITION: June 5-July 31, 2008

Gallery 415: 49 Geary St., 4th floor,
San Francisco, CA, 94108

Gallery 415 is pleased to present the recent work by the Brazilian-born painter, photographer, and mixed-media artist Silvia Poloto. A prolific artist who has shown in an impressive list of venues during her career. She will be showing not only the lyrical abstractions on canvas for which she is best known, but also a series of recent multimedia works on wood entitled Absence - Presence ; these pieces combine painting with digital imagery, both found and manufactured, in order to reflect on the psychology of illness and mortality. While the new works take on the serious themes of classical art, they retain Poloto's masterly command of color, gesture and texture; they are sumptuously beautiful improvisations that have come together from the disparate elements filling the artist's studio through the agency of Poloto's intuition - her perfect visual pitch.
