Desta Gallery welcomes abstract artists Heidi Berrin Shonkoff and Kathleen Finney
* Saturday, February 25, 3:00 – 5:00 pm
*February 17 – March 25
Desta Gallery is excited to welcome abstract artists Heidi Berrin Shonkoff and Kathleen Finney and feature their exhibition Visual Resonance. The exhibition is on view from February 17 to March 25.
In her paintings, Heidi Berrin Shonkoff strives to build up a sense of breath and expansion through many layers of paint and pursuit of balance between intensity and stillness. This process is reflected in the juxtaposition between vibrant form and expanded space that is ever present in her paintings.
Shonkoff shares, “All my life I have studied what is underneath. The process of uncovering layers—places that are vibrant, passionate, mysterious, and utterly luminous—excites me.” Shonkoff has exhibited locally and nationally. She completed her undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley.
Kathleen Finney‘s work captures ideas or reflections which later may take a different form, a final shape or destination. Rubbed, obliterated, slightly obscured, refreshed, and covered over again, leaving a history of color, shape, line, and texture in her paintings.
Finney expresses, “Rome is where I found my passion, the beauty, the decay, layers of life all mixed together in a complex urban environment. This is what I try to bring to my paintings and my life.” Finney has exhibited nationally and internationally. She Studied at California College of the Arts, San Francisco Art Institute, and UC Berkeley Extension.
