Process of Purpose

Through Sept. 6
510-499-1789
<i>Process of Purpose</i>
There’s a little gathering going on right now at LeQuiVive Gallery (1525 Webster St., Oakland). It’s an all-boys show of works by six artists who were all invited because of their similar tendency to get lost in the process of creation. Each artist ultimately produces a style that is idiosyncratic enough to stand on its own, yet not so jarringly distinct that the conversation between participants is awkward. Each artist — Max Kauffman, Anthony Hurd, Scott Greenwalt, Justin Lovato, Santos Shelton, and Boy Kong — has a limited section of wall space dedicated to their work, a dynamic organization of small pieces that collectively form a succinct yet nuanced statement. While the show’s local artists represent an array of East Bay aesthetics, including Kauffman’s romantic watercolors and Greenwalt’s electric line work, the out-of-town artists offer up some less familiar work with impressive execution. Austin’s Anthony Hurd employs a wide variety of brushwork styles to bring together a mixture of silky and crackled textures that create looming windows into dark, otherworldly landscapes. Meanwhile, Orlando’s Boy Kong is showing a relatively simple series of square paintings that each depict an animal twisted into a boxy space. With calligraphy-like brushwork that harks back to Chinese ink painting, Kong’s simplified creatures pop with symbolic character and infectious charm. Overall, this is a collection of artists that you want to get to know. Free
