The recent work of William Theophilus Brown, a leading figure in the Bay Area Figurative movement, originates as abstract painting, which he then cuts and pastes into new compositions—part acrylic paint, part collage—that display the monumentality and gestural quality of the New York School.
Immediately preceding the collage making, Brown will comment informally in the exhibition galleries about some of his favorite Schwitters pieces.
