UNTITLED SAN FRANCISCO

January 12-14, 2018

OPENING: Friday, January 12th, 2018

The Hole is proud to present works by artists Johnny Abrahams and Stephen Somple. The glossy, buttered-on oil paint of Abrahams’ minimal paintings finds a foil in the oxidized brass wall works of Somple. Where Abrahams stacks forms, gently abutting on raw canvas, Somple dents brass sheets and then welds the sides of the crumpled 3D plate to make a shiny, distorted 3D wall forms.

Both artists spent many years living and working in San Francisco and this booth at UNTITLED San Francisco is a bit of a homecoming for both.

See these works in person Saturday 12-8pm and Sunday 12-6pm at the Palace of Fine Arts in Presidio!
