Paul Klee and Rex Ray
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
May 20 – October 9, 2017
Our dear friend and artist, the late Rex Ray, is in an exhibition at SFMOMA with art world luminary Paul Klee. This intimate exhibition places artworks by Swiss-born modernist Paul Klee (1879–1940) alongside dazzling paintings by San Francisco artist and designer Rex Ray (1956–2015). Although separated by both time and place, their works share stunning formal similarities, including an exploration of geometric forms, the use of vibrant color, and playful, organic designs. Among other works, the exhibition features a rarely exhibited, intimate pastel watercolor by Klee from 1917 and an eye-popping collage by Ray from 1999. A link to the exhibition is here.
