Invisible Places

Invisible Places

November 18, 2017 - December 18, 2017

Invisible Places explores two artistic directions that Kelly Ording has pursued throughout her body of work. First is her signature line work, which has evolved with the use of brighter hues and color washes over dyed paper. Second are her dreamy and ethereal abstract landscapes. With these latest pieces she explores weather and movement in them.

Kelly Ording

Kelly Ording creates artwork that blends organic and geometric shapes with exact lines, pairing intuitive and mathematical mark-making. In doing so, she attempts to create and find beauty in simple things. Her pieces are as much about their creation process as the resulting imagery.

Ording is a graduate of San Francisco Art Institute. In addition to fine art, she creates large-scale public works and murals for locations such as Clarion Alley, Pelaga Park Recreation Center, Genentech, Facebook, and Kala Art Institute. This summer, she will complete a large-scale paving project at Unity Plaza, in conjunction with the San Francisco Department of Public Works and the San Francisco Arts Commission.

Wildflower Child

Wildflower Child

November 18, 2017 - December 18, 2017

Wildflower Child is an homage to both the Victorian fairy illustrations and paintings that Ursula Young grew up with in England and the colorful free-spirited love vibrations that were present 50 years ago during San Francisco’s Summer of Love. She provides a modern-day interpretation of the whimsical drawings against a Northern Califorinia background with an emphasis on the wildflowers abundant after the wettest winter in recent history.

Ursula Xanthe Young

She finds inspiration in the organic yet urban landscape of the city and its surroundings, and is also highly influenced by her travels and the variety of beings that she encounters along the way. She holds a degree from Parsons School of Design in Illustration.
