SFMCD Goes Into Material Reduction in Group Exhibition

See also

Opening this Saturday at the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco (SFMCD) is a group exhibition titled Obsessive Reductive. It comprises of eighteen artists, all of whom works in a variety of media including paper, wood, and metal, and the feature works all share the common process of intricately, precisely and “obsessively” removals of material, thus creating extraordinary imagery and sculpture.

The works in this exhibition each have reticulating patterns, as well as in some cases, the use of material absence employed by a significant design element, that positions the negative space as a dominant element. The visual similarity in all of the featured works, are in its concentrated detail and complexity, despite all of its various approaches and media.

The artists featured in this exhibition are Drew Daly (whose work Remnant is featured on the exhibition’s page on SFMCD’s website at, Brian Dettmer, Jim Dingilian, Adam Feibelman, Theresa Ganz, Cal Lane, Bovey Lee, Chris Natrop, Aric Obrosey, Francesca Pastine, Lyndi Sales, Jill Sylvia, Leigh Salgado, Farnaz Shadravan, Kako Ueda, Annie Vought, Elise Wehle, and Jared Yamanuha.

Obsessive Reductive is on view until March 30th. Log on to SFMCD’s website for more information, and to even see the preview of what is to be expected in the exhibition.
