"Andrea Way: Drawings"
2005-12-15 until 2006-01-28
Brian Gross Fine Art
San Francisco, CA, USA United States of America

Andrea Way opens her solo exhibition, Drawings, at Brian Gross Fine Art on Thursday, December 15. Way elegantly systematizes naturally occurring patterns in her intricate and lyrical ink drawings. In her second exhibition at Brian Gross Fine Art, Way presents her characteristically abstract drawings that deftly articulate complex organic patterning. Her compositions are comprised of intuitively structured layers, nuanced color, and playful geometries to create richly detailed, textural works on paper. The dynamic combination of linear and non-linear elements activates both foreground and background resulting in a powerful vocabulary constantly in flux. These rhythmic, multifaceted drawings are formally sophisticated and ultimately engaging.

Also featured in the exhibition will be Andrea Way's contribution to Magnolia Editions' 20 Year Drypoint Project. The project consists of a series of mixed media pieces created on drypoints pulled from the cutting board used at Magnolia for the last twenty years. Way's 38 by 84 inch drawing on drypoint is the first of the series to be exhibited and is a compelling graphic work.

Andrea Way was born in San Francisco, CA in 1949 and received her BA from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN in 1971. Her work has been featured in many gallery and museum exhibitions and is included in the public collections of The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, HI; Achenbach Foundation, Fine Art Museums of San Francisco, CA; Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, OH; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Corcoran Gallery, Washington, DC; and the National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C., among others. She currently lives in Washington, D.C. The exhibition continues through January 28, 2006.
