JINAH CHINA
Two Artists, One Cup
July 3 - July 26, 2009
Opening Reception for the Artists
Friday, July 3 from 5 - 8 p.m.
K. Saari Gallery is proud to announce the opening of Jinah China: One Cup, Two Artists. The show will feature the provocative work from the innovative young artists, Jonah Skurky - Thomas and Micah Bell. Their collaborative ceramic work stems from the idea that they want " to create an object that belongs in a traditional setting, such as a fancy dinner party, but at the same time brandish images that are taboo for such functions." Both artists graduated in 2007 from the Art Institute of Chicago and Skurky-Thomas is a graduate of Steamboat Springs High School. They currently reside in Durango, Colorado.


MONROE HODDER
Paint Up!
March 4 - April 15, 2011

FREDERICK HODDER
February Light
March 4 - April 15, 2011
Opening Reception for the Artists, Friday, March 4 from 5 to 8 p.m.


K. Saari Gallery is proud to announce the opening of two solo shows, Monroe Hooder's: Paint Up! and Frederick Hodder's: February Light. The shows will open with a reception for the artists on First Friday, March 4 from 5 to 8 pm.

Monroe Hodder's: Paint Up! will feature over five new paintings, including a site specific installation in her first solo show at the gallery. The installation will be a first for Hodder and KSG is pleased to have this memorable piece included in the show from this established artist. As Caroline Compston, former curator at the Tate Muesum, states, "Be seduced by Monroe Hodder's chromatic sensations, but don't be fooled by them. Her career spans a number of chapters in the history of American art. Inspired by a vast web of experiences, her work is charged these days with the urban intensity and stimulation of life in London, together with the peace and solitude of a studio in Colorado." After studying at Vasser, Hodder worked at the San Francisco Art Institute and the Arts Students' League in New York. She received her MFA from the San Franscicso Art Institute. Hodder taught painting at various schools in San Francisco. Her experience of working as assistant to the Mexican artist, Manuel Neri, at the San Francisco Art Institute brought her into contact with Clifford Still and Mark Rothko. Through her involvement with Neri came an affiliation with the Bay Area Figurative School in California, including such artists as Richard Diebenkorn and Elma Bischoff. Hodder's work is included in over 300 private and public collections internationally, including Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Linklater, and Bank of America.
Opening for the Artist, First Friday June 3, 2011
5 to 8 p.m.


THE SHORTEST DISTANCE BTN2PTS : Kenneth Ober
Curated by Nancy Jeffrey and Kimberly Conrad Saari


May 31 - June 27, 2011

K. Saari Gallery is proud to announce the opening of The Shortest Distance BTN2PTS, curated by local artist Nancy Jeffrey and local gallery owner Kimberly Conrad Saari. The show will feature nineteen paintings by Los Angeles based artist Kenneth Ober in his first solo show at KSG. The show will run May 31 - June 27, 2011 and there will be an opening reception for the artist,
Friday, June 3 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Kenneth Ober's current work reflects his immense discipline and his sense of meditation, which in turn create complex paintings that challenge the viewer. In his statement Ober explains that,
"The paintings are composed of small lines of different colors that work in conjunction with each other to create a visual color that is a hybrid of it’s components. Essentially the colors mix in the space between the painting and the viewer’s eyes. Technically every viewer experiences different colors when looking at these paintings. This visual effect is similar to dot printing in comic strips and several other printing techniques. Working with tiny marks and their visual effects are the basic techniques of pointillism, a branch of Impressionist painting popularized by George Seurat in the 1800s." Ober's paintings are primarily created with a tool designed for pin-striping automobiles, which he uses to subtly texture his canvas. The tool is used for relentlessly consistent mark making that appears as a kind of "micro-impressionist" technique. Each of his paintings in this series take more than twenty hours to complete, some up to sixty hours.

Kenneth Ober received his BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in Westchester, California and has been living in the Los Angeles area since 1999. His work has been included in many solo and group shows, most recently Group Show at Red Brick Gallery; Ventura, CA. His work is also included in numerous private and public collections throughout the nation.
