Rodney Ewing I August 23, 2019
Rodney Ewing is a working artist living in San Francisco. Ewing’s drawings, installations, and mixed media works focus on intersecting body and place, memory and fact, to re-examine human histories, cultural conditions, and historical events. Ewing says, “as an artist, it is more important to create a platform that moves us past alliances, and begins a dialogue that informs, questions, and in some cases even satires our divisive issues. There has to be an intersection where body and place, memory and fact are merged to re-examine human interactions and cultural conditions to create a narrative that requires us to be present and profound.” Ewing invites SEE(d) to an intellectual and sensorial visit in his San Francisco studio. Enjoy boutique wines and an assortment of appetizers amidst Ewing’s newest body of thought-provoking work.

Deborah Oropallo I September 14, 2019
Deborah Oropallo is a painter and video artist, working with web-based imagery and digital media. She incorporates her own photography in addition to digital media to craft highly intricate and layered works, which conflate history, symbolic meaning, and gender. “I use the computer as the tool, but painting is the language of deliberation that is running through my head,” she explains. “I do not want to just repaint an illustration of what the computer can do, but to push the pixels themselves as paint, and to layer imagery and veils to create depth and volume.'“ Oropallo invites SEE(d) to her studio and family farm where she will share her latest videos and 2-dimensional artworks and her partner will sample his home-made cheeses. Lots of artisnal wines (and cheese!) will be served.
