Robert Minervini: Improvised GardensPost an Event »

Robert Minervini: Improvised Gardens Improvised Garden II, 2017, acrylic on canvas, 84 x 72 in.

Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present our second solo exhibition of Oakland based artist Robert Minervini. In these new paintings, Minervini continues his investigation of human’s complex relationship to both the natural and constructed environment, looking at our dual and conflicting desires to both tame and live harmoniously with nature. Inspired by walks around San Francisco neighborhoods, many of these works focus on small improvised garden spaces, exploring how space is manipulated in densely populated urban areas with an effort to bring in the natural world, further underscored by the inclusion of three large planter box sculptures on the gallery floor.
