a two person show by Kat Geng & Jon Levy-Warren
Opening reception: July 14th, 5-7 pm.
at The Reclaimed Room Gallery at Building REsources / 701 Amador Street, San Francisco, CA
The Reclaimed Room Gallery is thrilled to present Transport Me, a dynamic two-person exhibition featuring sculptor Kat Geng and figurative painter Jon Levy-Warren. Using the once modern—and now extinct—phone booth as a central metaphor, Transport Me investigates what it means to travel to another realm, another time or another space without actually moving. Mining found-object canvasses sourced from the streets of San Francisco and the scrapyard, the artists have built a colorful collection of works—Geng with her playful repurposings and Levy-Warren with his portraits of refracted reverie—which explore objects and the power they have to carry us away. The exhibition will be on view July 14 through September 8, 2107 with an opening reception on Friday, July 14 from 5-7 pm.
Most days my bags are packed. I settle in among borrowed belongings in a city of thrown aways, giveaways, and takeaways that offer me a multitude of first times and stories; fabricated, implied and recognized. With these things, I imagine many worlds while digesting ours. I get lost in the found . . . ask the suitcase to speak in soliloquies and allow the ache to articulate. All the meanwhile counseling my head to heed my heart.
