On Saturday July 11, 2015 Modern Eden debuted "Reverie", a solo exhibition of new paintings byKurtis Rykovich. Utilizing a bold color palette and with a skillful hand, the artist portrays graceful and captivating subjects who embody both darkness and light. With a vibrant intensity, they encourage the viewer to let the extraordinary surroundings take over and encounter these beautiful, yet dangerous worlds.
On our back Project Wall, we are featuring Bay Area sculptor, Wesley T. Wright with his series of ceramic works titled "No More Horizons". Our gallery patrons enjoyed Rykovich's alluring paintings and Wright's captivating sculptures all under one roof on a beautiful San Francisco evening in North Beach.
Kurtis Rykovich's Reverie and Wesley T. Wright's No More Horizons are on view through August 8, 2015 at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco.
I always knew I wanted to be an artist, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I went to Virginia Commonwealth University and got a BFA in illustration but when I got out of school I realized two things, I wasn’t good enough yet and I had no clue what to do. I then stumbled across the fact that Trader Joe’s grocery stores hired artists and then settled into working for them for almost 15 years. I was doing everything from huge murals to shelf signs. It was a good job and was wonderful place for me to experiment and develop my skills, speed and professionalism, but I always dreamed of my work being in galleries.
