A solo exhibition featuring new paintings and works on paper by the Bay Area artist, presented in our Berkeley space, with an expanded selection of works viewable online. Kaufman has a career-long focus on pattern and repetition, working in a variety of media including paint, charcoal, pastel, silverpoint, and graphite, to transform fixed stripes, meandering lines, and accumulations of shapes into bold compositions that suggest space and movement. With an ongoing immersion in the history of art, as well as a curiosity in the everyday, Kaufman translates careful observations of specific sources like Ottoman calligraphy or seemingly ordinary designs of tire treads, into complex works whose origins and references are often obscured.
