Preview: Augustine Kofie "Circulatory System" @ White Walls, SFJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 08 Nov 2011
We checked in with Kofie a few weeks ago after he completed a new mural with El Mac in LA, and now we have a preview of his newest solo show at White Walls in San Francisco. Circulatory System will include 30 new works in Kofie's now trademark architectural drafting style. The show opens November 12 in SF.
White Walls is pleased to present Circulatory System, the new collection of work by Los Angeles-based artist Augustine Kofie. This will be Kofie’s second solo show with White Walls, and will include 30 recent works including smaller collage case studies on paper, hand painted multiple screen prints, assemblage on wood, paintings on canvas and wood and a large wall installation. The opening reception will be Saturday, November 12th, from 7-11 pm, and the exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through December 3rd
The works comprising Circulatory System feature a clean delineation of geometric forms and divisions of space with a technical precision that resembles architectural drafting. Kofie’s understanding of illustration and linework results in a style of meticulous rendering that never seems cold or sterile due to the delicate sense of balance maintained within each composition. The muted palette softens the sharp lines, and imparts a simple elegance to the complicated arrangements of shape.
