Ebb: Chris Russell + Gina Borg

December 10 - (ongoing)
Contact gallery for opening reception invitation.

LOCZI design studios and CULT | Aimee Friberg Exhibitions are pleased to present Ebb, a two-person show with artists Gina Borg and Chris Russell.

Gina Borg was born in Sacramento in 1973. She describes her artistic practice as “having the discipline to maintain a regular practice and an opportunity to playfully utilize the structure of the brain.” Borg did her B.F.A. at the University of California, Santa Cruz and graduate work at Boston University. Her work has been shown in various galleries and museums in California and New York. She currently lives in Oakland, California.

Chris Russell was born in 1983 in Boulder, Colorado. He received his BFA from the California College of the Arts in 2006 with High Distinction in painting and drawing. Working loosely within the genre of landscape painting, Russell explains his relationship to exploring the outdoors and painting from his experiences in it: "I am humbled and reassured of the sublime in nature, even though the wilderness I explore is confined by human boundaries….My connection to the natural world, the boundaries and things that filter my experience, compose the fulcrum upon which my art tries to balance." Russell has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in California, Oregon and Colorado. Internationally, Russell has exhibited in Italy, Denmark and Russia. He currently lives in Portland, Oregon.

Both Borg and Russell’s works reference energetic currents at play in the natural world. Borg uses incremental shifts of warm and cool tones with vibrant hues that radiate and shift on the canvas to create patterns of perpetual movement. Russell’s landscapes fuse geometric shapes, candy colors and warm light, simultaneously abstracting and highlighting subtler forces at play.
