AFTON LOVE: new work

Friday, June 5th 2015 -August 5th, 2015

Afton Love is an Oakland based artist working with themes involving preservation and memory. Her work is developed through a unique process involving graphite powder and wax, creating drawings and installations that articulate a landscape that is both highly specific and nearly abstract. Subtle gradations of tonality evoke both absence and presence, with the power to suggest experience rather than define it. Her drawings and installations range in scale from intimate to ambitiously expansive, imparting a sense of both power and loss in connection to the natural world. One enters Love’s dreamy work as one might enter a forest or take the first step on a path.

Join us for the opening reception of space/time on Friday, June 5th, 2015 between 6PM - 8PM at Esqueleto Oakland.




MATTHEW CRAVEN: space/time

Friday, April 3rd 2015 - June 3rd, 2015

Matthew Craven is a Brooklyn-based artist who uses historical images as a backdrop for his collages and drawings. Craven synthesizes historical images from lost cultures, relics, archaeological remains as well as images from the cosmos, both well known and extremely ambiguous, to create the abstract patterns and narratives in his works. By doing so he reconfigures the original historical narrative and he creates his own myths that induce a new connection to our past.
This series deconstructs old images from text books, and then re-assembles them back onto the book page to create a new history.

Join us for the opening reception on Friday, April 3rd, 2015 between 6PM - 9PM at Esqueleto Oakland.

You can also view select works from this series online here.
