SUPER-SILLY-US, celebrates the work of nonagenarian Barbara Stauffacher Solomon in dialogue with that of her daughter, Nellie King Solomon. Their shared training in architecture speaks to the artists' expanisve and playful approach to visual art which challenges the boundaries of established rules or frameworks.
San Francisco-based artist Barbara Stauffacher Solomon (b.1928, San Francisco), perhaps best known for her pioneering Supergraphics (oversized graphics created in response to the scale of architecture first produced at 1960s Sea Ranch), has worked across disciplines in graphic design, architecture, landscape architecture, drawing, writing, and more. Her original training in dance and painting, coupled with rigorous study of Swiss graphic design, has allowed her to establish an approach to art making uniquely her own. More Info
