What: “Piecing it Together” by Bobby Coleman
When: The Ramp Gallery, a community curated space at 934 Brannan St. (between 8th & 9th)
Where: June 11–June 25, 2012
“Piecing it Together” is a series of wood panel paintings that explores ideas of memory, reaction, response, and color theory while using abstracted visual signifiers from daily life. This phenomenological approach to the perception of time and cognitive memory is the driving force behind Coleman’s work. He stresses the importance of continually reusing and manipulating the imagery to create a layered, visual vocabulary that takes on new meaning while still referencing its point of origin and a past timeline.
Bobby Coleman comes from the Baltimore and D.C. areas and has a BFA in studio art from McDaniel College in Maryland and an MFA in studio art and painting from American University in Washington, D.C. He currently lives and works in San Francisco.
