"San Francisco: The Changing City - New Paintings by Beryl Landau"
2008-02-27 until 2008-03-22
San Francisco, CA,
USA United States of America
Beryl Landau's solo art show at the Newmark Gallery runs from Feb 27, 2008 through Mar 22, 2008. It focuses on the recent changes within San Francisco's urban landscape. She became particularly interested in the Mission Bay development that has gone from an industrial area to a modern city within a city. Juxtaposed against the Bay Bridge the Embarcadero and ATandT Park, Mission Bay conveys a new and strange aspect of the city. Landau calls her square format, acrylic paintings "symbolic landscapes", which although realistic, are intended to evoke a state of mind in the viewer. The canvases range from 17" to 57". The colors vary from muted to bright but they are all characterized by strong value contrast.
Beryl Landau grew up in New York and moved to California as a teenager. She studied painting at UC Berkeley and later at the San Francisco Art Institute under Joan Brown, Elmer Bischoff and Richard Diebenkorn. She lives in San Francisco where she has been painting, exhibiting and teaching.
