Curated by Carl Heyward at Gallerie Renee Marie, Benicia, California. On view through October 31, 2020. Despite our continuing troubles with COVID-19, artists are still working to interpret the world and their responses to it. And even through the many barriers that now, unfortunately, must exist, artists are still finding ways for the public to see their work. Once again, curator Carl Heyward has brought another excellent show to Gallerie Renee Marie. By appointment, the public is invited to visit this wonderful exhibition. The show features the photography of Oakland based multidisciplinary artist and poet Brian Auerbach. The main room of the gallery showcases Auerbach’s interpretive photographs debuting in the show. The intimate gallery is arranged in the ground floor space of one of Benicia’s historic homes, and Heyward has placed works of several Benicia based artists that compliment Auerbach’s ‘Obliterant’ theme in rooms adjacent to the main space. Auerbach captures heart grabbing images of graffiti, rust, painted marks, and advertising copy. Through digital manipulation, he alters and blends these fragments with images taken from nature. Auerbach makes powerful use of the color red in several especially effective pieces; and presents movingly mysterious images of dusk and the not-quite-seen things that dusk obscures. Also in the exhibition are works by Akiko suzuki, Mark Eanes, Carol Dalton, Mary Oros, Thalo Morse, Andrea D. Guerra, Debbie Cooper and Marianne Kolb.
