Art is Life and Only Life by Gianfranco Paolozzi

KALEID gallery is very proud to present this 40 year retrospective of art work by resident artist Gianfranco Paolozzi. “Art is life and only life. ” ~Gianfranco Paolozzi Gianfranco was born in a small Italian village in 1952. He has always been an artist and musician; he remembers drawing and creating art from as early as preschool and received his prized accordion at the age of 9 (which he continues to play while performing with his Paolozzi Tango Trio). As a young man in the 60’s, he sold two oil paintings to pay for a vacation around Italy with friends. It was then he started experimenting with photography.

Fruit and Mammals by Denis Korkh

KALEID Gallery is proud to present: Fruit and Mammals new paintings by Denis Korkh There is nothing that could unite Fruit And Mammals together except their squareness; 3 x 3 feet each, spaced 3 feet apart, and that I made them in sequence. And that I made them. Each painting is a stray thought (with layers and layers of more thoughts underneath) and the layers are no more related than the five paintings are between each other. I start by making the canvas as ugly as possible: the worst colours, awful–seriously awful– lines and shapes. I make the grossest compositions until I reach a point where, no exaggeration, it is hard to bear to look at them; I truly cringe inside. Each painting went through this between two and six times before I let it become finished. ~Denis Korkh Artist Reception: May 5, 7pm–11pm part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS…

Skunk-Truck & Lucy by Donny Foley

Skunk-Truck & Lucy new works by Donny Foley This March KALEID Gallery presents: Skunk-Truck & Lucy. This whimsical show features Donny Foley’s latest series of large scale Word Paintings. Each painting depicts a single story, but together they create one giant story; the tale of Skunk-Truck & Lucy. Word Paintings seamlessly combines two of Foley’s favorite forms of creative narrative: story telling and painting. The creation of each piece starts with a painted focal point. Then, the background is formed by hand lettering a story of which the entire painting is based upon. When viewed from a distance a Word Painting is meant to convey a cheery anecdote, but on closer inspection the viewer can see the complex nature of a seemingly simplistic image. Artist Reception: March 3rd, 7pm–11pm part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk in downtown San Jose. Free & open to the public. Exhibition dates: March…
