Stopped into the opening of a new space in downtown SF, the Mirus Gallery, to see Crucible a show of collaborations, over the weekend. These works are extravagant large swirling abstract masses of geometric and organic shapes, full of movement and layers. The opening was packed, full of posers and girls in cocktail dresses – some being photographed in front of the works, even though the artists were all male. It was difficult to see the art due to the crowd and it seemed like most weren’t there to really look at the art anyway. A worthwhile and interesting exhibit to revisit without the crowd.
CRUCIBLE: COLLABORATIVE WORKS BY ARTISTS DAMON SOULE, DAVID CHOONG LEE, MARS-1, NOME EDONNA AND OLIVER VERNON
