Three artists from San Diego, all exhibited internationally, will have their work exhibited at BFree Studio, June 2-30. An opening reception will be held on June 4, from 4 to 7 p.m.
The exhibition is entitled “Painting and clay: abstract language”.
“It was near my house, I thought it was a good idea,” said John Ratajkowski, whose work will be exhibited locally for the first time since an exhibition at UC San Diego about a year ago. three years.
According to BFree Studio, the exhibition “presents Ratajkowski’s installation with color and form.”
“According to him,” according to a gallery description, “the pictorial issues of abstract painting are distinct from those of figure work. In this series created for BFree Studio, Ratajkowski took fragments of his previous works and used them as the basis for entirely new paintings.
Ratajkowski grew up in Coronado and was interested in all forms of media early on. He said he split his time between North County and Ireland, where he often exhibited his work. He also traveled throughout Eastern Europe for his art.
“I grew up here, taught for 30 years at San Dieguito High School and Torrey Pines High School,” Ratajkowski said. “I took seven years off from my teaching time and showed in Spain, Poland and Ireland. I was picked up by an Irish gallery. They were representing, so everything was moved there .
The exhibition will also feature husband and wife artists Sylvia Tello Trumbull and Richard Trumbull.
Sylvia, after moving from San Diego to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico several years ago, discovered a love for ceramics and clay, according to her website. She was also drawn to artisanal techniques and alternative cooking methods.
