Preview: Skinner "The Fragile Art of Existence" at Shooting Gallery SFJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 03 Aug 2011
As we mentioned yesterday on the site, Juxtapoz is very happy to have Skinner part of our curation at the San Francisco music and art festival, Outside Lands. But prior to that outdoor activity, Skinner is opening a new solo exhibition at Shooting Gallery in SF, The Fragile Art of Existence.
As Shooting Gallery notes, "For the work featured in The Fragile Art of Existence, Skinner steps back a bit from his investigations of fear and destruction – in order to begin expanding his personal vision and scope of understanding. By taking risks, and making work outside of his comfort zone, Skinner hopes to free himself from any internal or external pressures that may pry him away from being present and “in the moment” with these new paintings. He has worked to eliminate any rushing, pressure, or stress that may prohibit him from making fluid, carefully balanced pieces that reflect this mentality, and provide a space for artistic experimentation and growth."
