We visited SF MOMA and were able to catch the exhibit, The SECA Awards, 50 Years of Bay Area Art, before it closed. This was an interesting and wonderful show with artists we hadn’t seen before and altho the exhibit is over, we wanted to feature the ones we really liked – in different posts. It is really rewarding to see a show like this at SF Moma – local and fresh artists – instead of the same old Warhols and Fridas. There were way to many to cover in one post, so for the next little while we will be sharing all these fantastic artists with you.
Really, really love this very large and dark piece by Larry Thomas, dynamic with movement and velvet blackest black. Titled Soul Trap – charcoal and pigment on paper.
“Contemporary fine artist Larry Thomas currently lives and works in Fort Bragg, Mendocino County, California. His work encompasses various media including painting, drawing, printmaking and calligraphy. Thomas taught for many years at the San Francisco Art Institute as professor of printmaking, chair of the printmaking department and dean of academic affairs. For the two final years of his tenure at SFAI he held the position of Interim President of the school.” – from the artists’ site
