Interplay is a group show featuring uber modernist artist, Kerry Suzanne Campbell, and biomorphic abstract artist, Michael Maas.

About the Artists:

Kerry Suzanne Campbell is attracted to the clean and poetic energy of the mid 20th century modern aesthetic because it exemplifies a certain simplicity and celebration of the juxtaposition of things in form and space. Her work explores the intersection and interplay of ideas, life’s exquisite beauty or agony, individual expression, and relational metaphor. Her work is uber modernist in a sense. Her work is bold and expressive abstract representations of form, but these forms interplay with each other and express a type of relationship, an abstract tension, or a metaphorical mood or sense of story. She also explores human relationships and allegory through abstract figurative works that often explores the themes of relationships and alienation. Other works are abstract expressionist in their story-telling. Kerry received a Bachelor of Arts at the University of California, Davis, where she studied under the New York artist, Jane Rosen. She holds an M.A. in Creative Writing and often writes poems to go with her works. She has exhibited throughout the United States, including Washington D.C., Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Diego.

Michael Maas became a full-time artist in 1996 after having been, among other things, a bicycle racer in France, a meat-cutter in Illinois, and a life insurance salesman in Newport Beach, California. Primarily self-taught, his biomorphic paintings are in collections in Australia, Canada, England, France, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, and throughout the United States. Best known for his illusionistic, patterned-abstract “Alhambra Series” paintings, Michael shows regularly with galleries and museums throughout Southern California, and currently has his studio in Fallbrook, CA.
