New Formalism in Painting and Photography


Aug 22, 2019 to Dec 8, 2019
08:30 AM

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Collaboratively known as R&D, Bay Area artists Diane Rosenblum (b. 1964) and Joe Doyle (b. 1941) challenge the conventions of abstract painting and representational photography with computer manipulations that warp space and rearrange time. The exhibition features seven digital paintings and one large-scale installation photograph exemplifying Doyle’s leadership in illusionist painting with Rosenblum’s mastery of composite photography.  R&D transform the picture plane instantiating animation principles that the computer, as did the camera before it, to permanently alter the way we can see, shape, and understand the world.

New Formalism in Painting and Photography, on view from July 25 through December 8, 2019, is organized by April Bojorquez, curator at the Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art.  A reception will be held on Thursday, September 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the artists. On Thursday, November 21, R&D will discuss their artistic practice and collaborative approaches. For additional programming and information, please visit, www.stmarys-ca.edu/museum.
