2009 mixta/papel 19 x 19 cm


El gigante del minimalismo llega a nuestro escenario para mostrar su arte en un concierto íntimo e irrepetible. Acampañado por Wendy Sutter en el violonchelo y Mick Rossi en la percusión, Philip Glass desgranará sobre su piano las claves que han hecho de él el compositor vivo más imitado. Su influencia desde Einstein on the Beach (1976) ha sido grandísima y está presente en la consciencia general como ningún otro creador musical. Admirado y defenestrado, su abundante producción musical no deja indiferente a nadie. En cualquier caso, Cultural Cordón se rendirá ante la repetición emocional de uno de los maestros de este cambio de siglo.

2009 acrílico/papel 24 x 18 cm



FAMSF proudly presents an exhibition of a major new acquisition: two sets of monotypes by the American artist Richard Diebenkorn. Created over two days in 1975 with the artist Nathan Oliveira at Stanford University, these 24 prints dramatically represent Diebenkorn’s visual thinking with a progression from his iconic “clubs and spades” motifs to the abstract imagery of his “Ocean Park” subjects. The monotypes were created at the peak of Diebenkorn’s use of Ocean Park imagery and were exhibited only once, in 1976. They are the first Diebenkorn monotypes acquired for the Fine Arts Museums’ collection, made possible by the Phyllis C. Wattis Fund for Major Accessions. This exhibition is on view January 24 to May 24, 2009.



Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition of works on paper by Kim Frohsin, Wigs and Silhouettes. These energetic and bold works signify a breakthrough in Frohsin’s process. Abstracting the figure through color and collage, the resulting works are both engaging emotionally and aesthetically compelling. The body of work included in Wigs and Silhouettes exemplifies an exciting shift in Frohsin’s way of working. Although the armature of the image is still taken from direct observation of the human form, these new works offer a fresh perspective to her artistic vision. Puzzle-like and spontaneous, the ground meets the figure as colors collide and create images that are at once organic and mechanical. Using mostly palette knives, razor blades and crushed pigment, Frohsin’s mark making is truly original and dynamic. Michele Corriel of Western Arts and Architecture Magazine says of Frohsin’s work: “Painter Kim Frohsin harnesses the power of the female figure by incorporating startling color to impart movement. Her pieces crackle with vitality. Honest spontaneity and emboldened color palettes add to her directness with the pieces.” Kim Frohsin has exhibited alongside Bay Area Figurative painters such as Elmer Bischoff, Richard Diebenkorn and Wayne Thiebaud. Frohsin’s work is included in the permanent collections of the San Jose Museum of Art and the Achenbach collection at de Young Museum in San Francisco. Nationally, she has exhibited widely including the LaGrange Art Museum in LaGrange, Georgia and The Frye Art Museum in Seattle, WA. She lives and works in San Francisco. This will be her eighth solo exhibition at Dolby Chadwick Gallery.

“I dedicate this show, “Wigs and Silhouettes,” to my dear and inspiring friend, Barbara Lefcourt Davidson : 11/16/1931 ~ 4/5/2009” -Kim Frohsin
