Michelle Fierro: Paintings

As part of the San Francisco Art Dealers Association Introductions program, Brian Gross Fine Art opens a solo exhibition of recent work by Los Angeles artist Michelle Fierro. In conjunction with the Summer Artwalk, the reception for the artist will take place on Saturday, July 13, from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm, with a lecture by the artist at 1:00 pm. In her first solo exhibition in San Francisco, Michelle Fierro will present a series of abstract paintings. Her works are brilliantly painted compositions pushing the limits of abstraction through intense and intricate arrangements of paint.

Fierro’s paintings explore spatial relationships through the manipulation of form and color. The oil and mixed media paintings range in scale, and complex compositions are achieved through smudges of color, appended dollops of paint, and pencil lines on roughly treated canvas. The materials vary, sometimes acquired from the studio floors of fellow artists. Dense areas of concentrated paint are pressed or nailed from behind directly onto the canvas. Lines of graphite create texture or rhythmic movement in other areas. Fierro explores the interplay between foreground and background; forcing abstraction to tease the genre of landscape, the artist plays with notions of real and imagined space.

Born in Los Angles, Michelle Fierro received a MFA from Claremont Graduate School in 1995. Fierro has exhibited extensively along the West Coast and has been included in several shows in Europe. Brian Gross Fine Art is pleased to present her first solo exhibition in San Francisco.
