 Close friends for years, Bolinas resident Chris Whitefield and Oakland--based Ruth Kneass share complimentary creative practices, each inspired by stillness and contemplation. Informed by geometry and an early exposure to Mayan art, Whitefield creates remarkable line drawings where a singular line fills a pre-determined space, while Kneass creates kinetic sculpture inspired by the Northern California coastline made from hand--carved wood and stone, and metal.
