When: August 31 – September, 17, 2011

Victory Oasis is a solo exhibition by Joël Frudden in the Ramp Gallery, a secure all-access exhibition space located in the SOMArts lobby. Frudden is a current MFA student at the San Francisco Art Institute entering his second year within the painting department.  Victory Oasis is a show of collage paintings incorporating gouache and found magazine images on paper.

Victory Oasis deals with mashing together the war machine and the American Southwest landscape creating a bleak landscape of desert and rock populated by decontextualized military figures.  Victory Oasis will be exhibited in The Ramp through September 17th. You can also see pieces from another body of Frudden’s work in the group show Frontrunners: The 2011 San Francisco Foundation Murphy & Cadogan Awards Exhibition through September 16th in our Main Gallery.
