I am conscious that my work is lifted out of a history, although my paintings are foreign to me, I don't recognize them. What is familiar is the practice and experience of working with them. 

With painting I have a reliable vehicle to fluctuate between two points. The focus is only to move back and forth, running over what shows up to be the same ground, although what appears is something entirely different.

Brad Brown

Brad Brown is an artist working primarily on drawings and works on paper. His drawing projects
tend to be large, open-ended series that can remain unfinished for years. His largest project to date, The Look Stains, began in 1987 and consists of tens of thousands of works on paper that are
continually worked on, torn up, re-drawn, and re-contextualized.

Frances McCormack

I make large abstract oil paintings and works on paper. My work grows out of a number of influences, but all of them involve visual form and its capacity to carry meaning. My primary research has been the history of gardens, in particular the desert garden and the walled gardens of the near east and their associations with the idea of Paradise.

Fred Martin

My area of interest is art as a life path, and the objects one makes (whatever they are) as a record to the future of what we are today. For myself, that has been more than sixty years of painting and drawing, printmaking, writing and publishing.

Bruce McGaw

Bruce McGaw-Painter.  Born 1935, Berkeley, CA. 

Painting is one of the oldest of human activities and remains vital and essential.  Its wonder is related to the challenges and difficulties of its physical limitations, its constrained format and fixed facture, always totally present, a poetry of sight. Painting taps the deepest and most considered resources of its maker. McGaw continues to paint and draw in the studio he built in 1990. He continues to teach Drawing and Painting in the SFAI School of Studio Practice.
