"Hand Written" New Paintings by Gail Tarantino

Opening reception May 1st 6 - 8pm.



Fouladi Projects is very pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings on canvas and paper by Bay Area artist, Gail Tarantino.

In this newest series, Tarantino continues to explore her fascination with the ways in which language is perceived and constructs an innovative method of utilizing words as material for her art practice.

The works in Hand Written are inspired by letters of appreciation she has composed to a handful of scientists, naturalists and curiosity seekers. Each letter of every word from her penned missives are then translated into a colored dot, and an abstracted version is created. The paintings remain reminiscent of the familiar format of handwritten letters, but the textual content has been replaced by undecipherable yet deeply satisfying visual poetry.

Exhibition runs April 28 - June 5, 2015
