After recently arriving here from Australia, Campbell Whyte and Elizabeth Marruffo will be holding a collaborative painting exhibition at Million Fishes Art Gallery. The exhibition titled ‘Lost in a Fog’ will be running from August 4th-18th 2007, opening on Saturday August 4th at 7pm until 11pm
The works are based on personal observations while traveling through Japan and Europe and also their recent experiences here in the Mission District.
Their work can be described as urban art with a magic realist edge. These figurative paintings feature a mix of delicate, sensitively rendered details along with intriguing and thoughtful imagery that engages the viewer on many levels.
Their self-portraits and other imagery can evoke ideas of contrasting individual and collective energies that exist and that can become more apparent as a traveler. Our increasingly important connection to the weather and its patterns is also strongly referred to.
