Lora Schlesinger Gallery is proud to present Step in Time, a new exhibition by Bay Area artist, Judith Foosaner. This will be the artist’s third exhibition with the gallery, featuring new black and white abstract paintings and collages. The show will open with an artist's reception on Saturday, May 22, from 5-7 p.m.

Foosaner's work commences with a delicate line that evolves into bold complex forms, and compositions. In her painting, Kiss, organic forms resembling leaves float gently within fields of rich black paint. Similar shapes are found and transformed into puzzle-like collages in Pursuit. The fluidity and rhythm of each shape is disrupted, cut and then mounted on canvas resulting in even more elaborate compositions. The interplay between light and dark, consistent throughout her work, accents the shadows of the lines and shapes that encompass the entire canvas. With her signature style, her new work continues to exude energy and fervor.

Judith Foosaner has exhibited across the country including the Oakland Museum, San Diego Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Albuquerque Museum, and the Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, and the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, New York.   She studied with Elmer Bischoff, David Hockney, R.B. Kitaj, and Mark Rothko at the University of California, Berkeley. Foosaner has taught at the California College of Arts, University of California, at Berkeley and Davis, and the Wimbledon School of Art in London.
