San Francisco-based artist Léonie Guyer (b. 1955, New York City) creates paintings, drawings, and books that are intimate in scale and minimalist in sensibility, yet are also expansive, idiosyncratic, and deeply nuanced. Consisting mostly of abstract shapes, some of her works are painted on wooden panels or marble fragments, others are drawn on paper, and others are painted directly onto walls in site-responsive installations. This exhibition, titled form in the realm of, is the first monographic institutional showing of her work that will also feature newly commissioned work. It is curated by CCA Wattis Director and Chief Curator Anthony Huberman as part of the institute’s 20th anniversary programming.
