Join Creativity Explored for the opening of FULL STOP! 

FULL STOP! is an exploration of the ways three artists use mark making to experiment, communicate vision, and collaborate. This exhibition of work by Claus GroegerCorine Raper, and Hung Kei Shiu features diverse techniques of line making and deliberate gestural abstraction.

All three artists are, for the most part, non-verbal, and use mark making as a mode of expression. Viusaul Arts instructor and Co-Curator, Hannah Grace Lilly remarks, “there is something so quiet about the three artists, but something so incredibly loud about their artwork.”

The artists’ respective methods may appear as an impulsive mark, but upon closer examination they demonstrate a deep understanding of composition, color, and movement. For example, Groeger’s lines often flow off the paper functioning as an extension of his curiosity, while Raper keeps her gestural line work within the boundaries of the page serving as a reflection of her concentration. In contrast, Shiu delicately crafts dreamy colored fields of line work into assembled patterns. 

Curated by Amanda Eicher and Hannah Grace Lilly

FREE parking available during the opening reception at Mission Dolores Church (enter on Church Street) from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
