This exhibition gives the viewer a deep view into the studio life of the painter Terry St. John. Building figures formed from the air that surrounds them in a space that expands, contracts, and at times, merges with the body, these works present a profound exploration of light and shadow. Maintaining strong ties to Bay Area traditions, St. John has pursued a visual journey investigating the shape of our world. As represented in his vigorous practice, the paint itself brings forth body or bay, house or hill.
