26 Apr Claire Burbridge & Matthew Picton: Absence and Presence.
Until May 1st, multi-disciplinary artist Claire Burbridge and paper sculptor Matthew Picton have a really exciting show at Toomey Tourell in San Francisco. Burbridge entombs sculptures in blocks of resin, serving to capture a moment of human life in time. Picton creates his signature paper sculptures of three-dimensional city maps, only to burn them systematically to show the aftermath of destruction. It’s a show that explores humanity and how it deals with change — particularly harsh change. Highly recommended.
