San Francisco, July 13, 2012 — Disorder exists in every ordered thing. And there is quite a bit of ordered disorder in the San Francisco art world, noticed Leeza Doriean, CE Art Instructor, and Gail Dawson, Associate Professor of Art at San Francisco State—especially at Creativity Explored. The two joined forces to co-curate Out of Order, a group exhibition featuring over 20 artists who organize their artwork through mark-making, color use, language, geometry, layering, and repetition. The work is excitingly diverse in terms of material and subject matter—there are drawings of knitted objects, abstracted animal prints and bodily systems, cut paper diamond collages, map paintings, and a vast florescent ink psychedelic universe—but each piece shares an undeniable intellectual and emotional rigor. Each artist in this show pursues order through a complex system of their own creation, and viewers will have a special chance to experience spectacularly different ways of seeing through their eyes.
