SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Brian Gross Fine Art announces Breaking and Entering, a solo exhibition by Bay Area artist Judith Foosaner opening Saturday, July 7, with a reception for the artist from 2-4pm. Influenced by the pulse, beat, and movement of dance and jazz, the seven paintings included in Breaking and Entering are bold compositions marked by fluidity and rhythm.

Judith Foosaner’s unique combine works begin with black and white linear drawings on paper, which are then cut, rearranged, and collaged onto the canvas. Guided by the lines, Foosaner applies paint to the collaged surface, resulting in complex compositions that enter into a new formal relationship. In a choreographic gesture, the works investigate line, surface, and movement. The work of Judith Foosaner encapsulates energy and fervor as line and form dance across the surface of the composition, resulting in dynamic and gestural abstractions.

About Foosaner’s work, art critic Bill Berkson has written: "The semblance of motion as a cumulative traffic of marks and interstices, afloat or scurrying, prompts the view of each painting’s surface as a site of transformation where character is all in the momentum, rather than the congealing, of resilient parts."

Breaking and Entering marks Judith Foosaner’s second exhibition at Brian Gross Fine Art. Works from her series, Moving Violations, were displayed at Brian Gross Fine Art at One Post in 2011.

Born in Sacramento, CA, Judith Foosaner received her MA at the University of California, Berkeley. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and is represented in many public and private collections, including the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, the Oakland Museum of California, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock, the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, The San Diego Museum of Art, and The Albuquerque Museum of Art. She currently lives and works in Berkeley, CA.
