Two Artists Fix the Passing Scene

Stanford Art Spaces is pleased to announce its July-August 2014 art exhibit, featuring Artifacts: Urban Images on Habothai Silk, Charles Anselmo’s photos of the slowly crumbling architecture of Havana, New Orleans, and other cities, printed on unstretched, unframed fabric, and Specific Gravity Martin, Webb’s semi-abstract assemblage paintings of America and west Africa. Both are established Bay Area artists. Anselmo, from Redwood City, recently returned from the latest of many photo-tourism trips that he has led to Cuba in the past decade; in addition, he is represented by PHOTO Gallery in Oakland. Webb, of Albany, has shown extensively in the Bay Area, including at The Compound in Oakland, and has just installed a public sculpture in Palo Alto and is currently working on a mural at the Baylands Nature Preserve. Although Anselmo’s photographically printed silks and Webb’s paintings on wood panel are very different in feeling—ethereal versus material, and light versus heavy—both artists reveal the human presence pervading the built environment and explore the mystery of time.
