Saints & Heroes

Showcasing prints by Charles Barth and constructions by David Gilhooly. Charles lives and works in Oaxaca, Mexico. Charles creates symbolic figural studies of real and fictitious characters. On first glance the subjects may seem ominous, but upon closer inspection one can see the humor and reverence that the artist uses to portray his characters. His etchings involve images from Mexico and popular cultures such as Kitsch, current fads and fashions, pop stars, TV images, films, rock music and disco.


Using a three color etching process, Charles creates images that are colorful, full of pattern, and detail. The end result involves bright or garish colors, exotic images, and the feeling of light moving over the surfaces.


David was born in Auburn, California, and he graduated from the University of California, Davis with a BA in 1965 and an MA in 1967. Gilhooly, together with Robert Arneson, Peter Vandenberge, Chris Unterseher and Margaret Dodd, worked together in TB-9 (temporary building 9) what was later to be called, The Funk Ceramic Movement of the San Francisco Bay Area.
