A new exhibition of abstract, nonfigurative art works by artists with developmental disabilities at San Franciscos Creativity Explored
This March, Creativity Explored brings together the work of more than 15 studio artists in The Untitled, a gorgeous and moving exhibition dedicated to abstract, non figurative bursts of color, line and states of mind. Curator Miranda Putman is an artist instructor at Creativity Exploreds second studio in Potrero Hill where member artists generally have more severe or multiple disabilities, including physical disabilities such as blindness or extremely limited mobility. Much of the work of these artists is abstract, and many have been experimenting with and refining their personal artistic gestures, patterns and marks for years. One such artist is Than Diep who contributes a large 4x5 canvas that glows with colorful glazes. Allura Fong, who works with an avid intensity, juxtaposes large stains of ink with delicate lines. Taneya Lovelace uses a softer color palette to create landscapes of floating, luminescent bubbles. Richard Pimental works all by feel creating highly textural pieces on wood panels.
