There is an infinite complexity to nature. From sea shells, to the Milky Way galaxy, to the structure of human lungs, there are patterns that exist in everything around us. London based collaborators Kai & Sunny (previously featured here) have always been drawn towards such images created by nature. Opening Saturday, they will exhibit six new ballpoint pen pieces in “The Matter of Time” at 886 Geary Gallery in San Francisco. A more vibrant palette is applied in their new drawings, alongside hand-pulled monochromatic screen prints on copper and paper. Their works magnify and stylize the things that are plainly visible to us but often overlooked. Here, this would be the turn of the tides, represented in energetic, abstract pieces. Tides are caused by the combined effects of gravitational forces, which can be peaceful and innocent, while also wild and chaotic. Kai & Sunny balance the two between dynamic patterns and serene, flowing compositions. Their exhibit is shared by Ryan De La Hoz, recently featured here, who will also have new works on display.
“The Matter of Time” will be on view from June 13 through July 4 at 886 Geary Gallery.
