We are please to announce the upcoming solo exhibition at LIMN Gallery in San Francisco. This exhibition marks the first time Ritchey will exhibit carved wood bas-reliefs and polyurethane "Tissue" paintings together. Though different in appearance in almost every way, the two series were created concurrently and with similiar concerns. Both series have multiple meanings and it is this competition for attention and comprehension that inspires the artist.
This is Ritchey's first solo show with LIMN Gallery.
