A survey of works by Raylene Gorum
June 24–August 5,2016
Reception: July 8, 5-8pm
Artist Talk: Saturday July 23, 11am
Phases is a contemplation on the various passages of time featuring a survey of recent work by Raylene Gorum. Using a variety of pattern sources such as topography, climate patterns, celestial movements, and Islamic tessellations; Gorum creates temporal works, which interact with the immediate space. The exhibition includes book publications; wearable concept art (mathy bling); a 40' long street-facing installation; map based works created in vinyl, acrylic, and mirrors; and a peek into her sketchbooks and process.
Raylene Gorum is a Bay Area based artist who works primarily with intricately cut vinyl and tape to create installations and flat work that blur spatial boundaries through the use of reflective and transparent materials.
She has a Bachelors of Architecture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and through the Ecole d'Architecture in Paris. She also studied Experimental Printmaking at Central St. Martins while living in London.
Her works have been exhibited in San Francisco, New York, London, Milan, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipei, and Brazil and included in lots for auction at the Whitney Art Party and Phillips du Pury. Her largest installation to date occupied 165' x 16' of window across the street from MOMA NY on 53rd Street.
She recently relocated to California and bought a houseboat in Sausalito after selling a popular singing bar, Baby Grand, that she designed, owned and operated in Soho, NYC.
