SAN FRANCISCO SOLO EXHIBITION:
FROM THERE TO HERE
Gallery Heist is pleased to present From There to Here, a solo exhibition for Los Angeles/San Francisco based artist Adam Flores.
JUNE 5 - JUNE 27, 2010
From There To Here – Opening reception: Saturday, June 5, 2010, 7-11pm
Adam Flores received his BFA from the Academy of Art University in 2009. He has since gained international recognition exhibiting thorough out Australia, Germany, Denmark, Los Angeles and San Francisco. This is his first solo show at Gallery Heist and his first show in San Francisco since relocating to Los Angeles.
Adam’s work illustratively analyzes and illuminates contemporary issues that are often questioned but rarely answered. The enigma of religion, mans-ionization, over-polulation, religion, mortality, society, consumption and the improbable acquisition of the American Dream. With fixed opportunities for the working and lower class to step up on the economical ladder and materialistic wars fabricated for our consumption. Global warming and environmental issues continue to increase despite our diminutive attempts to comply with nature. Man is on the forefront of change and each day brings us closer to the tipping point. Though these issues may seem disheartening Adams work has an alleviating charm and mischievous continuity that reassures the observer that hope is still to be had but that the responsibility has been passed from the artist to the viewer.
ABOUT THE GALLERY
Art is an extension of our culture and our communities and in many ways art defines our times. Art is not a luxury it is a necessity. My mission is to foster innovative artistic expression and provide sanctuary for the creative process while stressing the importance of it. The walls of Heist will house work that is representational to this generation offering a contemporary program of artists who challenge and analyze our social and cultural responsibility, traditions, and behaviors; artists who are on the forefront of a conscious art movement. To encourage and support this conscious art movement, I have opened Heist and hope that you will choose to be a part of it.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 12:00-8:00pm Mondays by appointment. Gallery Heist is located at 679 Geary Street near the corner of Leavenworth, southeast of the intersection.
