San Francisco Exhibitions. Andrea Way. Off the Grid. Recent Works on Paper. January 8 – February 28, 2015

Brian Gross Fine Art is pleased to announce an exhibition of works on paper by Andrea Way, on January 8, 2015. On view will be eight mixed media drawings that explore the concepts of development and evolution through systematic map making and linear patterns. Through intricate layers of abstract networks, Way builds dazzling arrangements that perfectly balance structure and beauty. Off the Grid will be on view through February 28, 2015.

Continuing to explore rule-based drawings of interconnecting marks and configurations, Way now turns her attention exclusively to black and white. Removing the complication and distraction of color, Way is free to focus on the foundation and reduction of her incredibly complex formations. Way begins each drawing with a distinct pattern, letting the boundaries of the paper dictate the direction of her lines, eventually building upon itself, both revealing and sometimes concealing the record of her activity. Small circles and subtle contours echo the exquisite complexities of a cellular network or elaborate maze. This unfurling of unforeseen shapes and syncopated rhythms create a delicate harmony of methodical intent and spontaneous discovery.

Andrea Way received her B.A. from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN in 1971. Way, who divides her time between Washington D.C. and the Bay Area, has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States. She is represented in the public collections of the Honolulu Museum of Art, Honolulu, HI; Achenbach Foundation, Fine Art Museums of San Francisco, CA; Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland, OH; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Corcoran Gallery, Washington, DC; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C., among others. This is Andrea Way’s fourth solo exhibition at Brian Gross Fine Art.
