“Beyond Nature,” and “Deconstructed /Reconstructed”
417 San Anselmo Ave
Desta Gallery is pleased to announce two concurrent solo exhibitions: “Beyond Nature,” paintings by Chris Hayman and “Deconstructed / Reconstructed,” Collage by Marlene Walters, on view from February 29 to April 11, 2020, and a reception for the artists on Saturday, March 7, 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Chris Hayman received her BA in Art History at the University of Maryland and a second degree in Art at the University of Reno, Nevada where she started her investigation in painting. Hayman has exhibited actively with several galleries nationwide. Her work can be found in numerous private and corporate collections.
In her paintings, Hayman concerns herself with space. She is interested in how forms are energized by the space around them, especially when incorporated into paintings with vivid contrasting colors and thick painterly textures.
Marlene Walters earned a B.A. in Art from Mills College and became an award-winning corporate graphic designer. She returned to oil painting and studied with many notable painters including Van Waldron, in the lineage of Russian master painter Sergei Bongart. She exhibits throughout the Bay Area and beyond and has grown a loyal following of collectors, nationally and internationally.
Walters’ most recent work extends her exploration into complex assemblages of archival prints of her own paintings.
