Lo-Lusture at The Compound Gallery, Oakland

I had a nice talk with the artist Marie Reich (picture below) at the opening last Friday about the nature of exposure and networking online, ie, Facebook. She doesn’t do it. She prefers to skirt the line of anonymity and creating a name solely for her art. Sounds too difficult to me.

The other artist in the show, Barbara Holmes, as explained by Compound owner Matt Reynoso, found her objects as part of “Dump residency” program. Linking found objects with selected colors from a discarded color-swatch book, the work was informed by an intuitive palette that brought the show together. -Obi.
