Sara Frantz will show a new body of work entitled, “Safety in The Shade” at Left Field Gallery, Los Osos, CA, opening June 6th, 2020.
Out of time and dislocated from the original space, Frantz’ latest series of paintings explore the false barriers that create more imagined than real distance between two points of view. Composed from the perspective of being inside a cave, the viewer looks up or out to the sky, unable to touch what the stars may bring. Scenes of hope and want, but also powerlessness depicted in flat color and faux digital paint marks. Alien and grand in their starkness, the result considers how technology simultaneously extends and amputates people’s senses – fragmenting experiences.

In “Un/Raveling: A Collective Mourning” at the Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery January 30 – February 27, 2020, artists address how their contemporary practices wrestle with grief and mourning—both personal and collective. Through their distinct practices, this diverse group of artists weaves a collective response to these narratives of loss. They ravel and unravel their own experiences with each others’ - culminating in an exhibition where anyone can find a place to enter, sit, and not feel alone.
