NICK COLEY / Paintings Oct 5th - 30th
Nick Coley's work has its roots in the fanatical ethos of a small school in the South of France which made Cezanne its figurehead and had a very black and white view of art history. L'ecole Marchutz was a great place to get rooted in a concrete perspective of the fundamentals and a format of painting from real life. Twenty years later, he still paints on location, finding himself in relation to a place and seeking unity with his surroundings. Only now he's exchanged the south of France for the open-air nut house that is San Francisco. The show will coincide with the Oakland Art Murmur's upcoming first friday this October 5th from 6:00 - 9:00 and will continue now through to the 30th of October. Hope to see you there! Otherwise, you can come by anytime from Fridays to Saturdays 12- 6 pm , the doors will be open. Click on the picture to see it larger.
