Anniversary Season Exhibitions
October 18, 2000 (SAN FRANCISCO, CA)Meyerovich Gallerys winter
exhibitions will feature contemporary sculptor Guy Dill and Bay Area artist
Matt Phillips. The shows will run concurrently from December 7, 2000 to
February 10, 2001 and will be the premier exhibitions in both of the gallerys
newly remodeled spaces.
Guy Dill has entitled his most recent series of works the Bronze
Angels. These abstract bronze sculptures range from large (6 x 2 feet)
to small (2 feet x 6 inches) in scale. Both strongly vertical and softly
curving, their resiliency reflects Dills interest in "visual
harmonics." Henry T. Hopkins, former director of SFMOMA, has found
in these works "an intuitive sense of spiritual and physical balance
and order." Dills works are included in the following collections:
Museum of Modern Art, New York; Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.;
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art,
New York; the Los Angeles County Museum of Modern Art and many others.
Matt Phillips is the Bay Area artist most strongly involved in
the revival of the monotype (unique painted print) tradition founded by
19th century artists Degas, Gauguin and Prendergast. His work often combines
monotype and collage techniques and focuses on the strong contours of
the female figure and the vibrant colors of landscape. Recent trips to
India and China have added new shapes and colors to his palette. In addition
to an upcoming retrospective at Stanford Universitys Cantor Center,
Phillipss work is included in the following collections: The Art
Institute of Chicago; the Metropolitan Museum, New York; the Whitney Museum
of American Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.;
the Anderson Collection, Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts, San
Francisco and many others.
