Reception, Saturday, January 16, 2010 – 6:30pm – 8:30 pm

Project 4 is proud to present a solo exhibition of San Francisco abstract painter, Cornelia Schulz. The bold perimeters of Schulz’s paintings matched with the intricate and refined surfaces, result in an engaging dialogue between grand modernist ideals and reflective, personal reverie.

Schulz sophisticatedly manipulates the oil paint, alkyd resin and acrylics that spread throughout and emerge from her assembled shaped canvases. Having been educated in painting around the same time as iconic 1960’s painters such as Richard Tuttle and Elizabeth Murray, similarities in sensibilities and experimentation with shaped canvases are certainly evident in Schulz’s work. Continuing also in the footsteps of artists such as Barnett Newman and Frank Stella, she sought to redefine the rectilinear orientation of the art object. In this exhibition, Schulz presents some of her most recent paintings where abstract, biomorphic and at times floral forms coat segments of her constructed compositions while applying her contemporary, idiosyncratic handwriting to a historically rich concept.

Cornelia Schulz exhibits with Patricia Sweetow Gallery in San Francisco. Since 1962, she has exhibited at such prestigious institutes as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the University Art Museum, Berkeley, California and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC, along with many other commercial galleries around the country. In 1973, Schulz began teaching at the University of California, Davis, where twice she chaired the Art Department. In 2002, Schulz retired with the title of Professor Emeritus
