John Waguespack's CLIMATE CONTROL Now on View at 111 Minna Gallery
111 Minna Gallery presents the second installment of prolific San Francisco Artist, John Waguespack, who nearly sold out his first solo show with the gallery in 2012. Waguespack was the inaugural Artist-in-Residence at the Fairmont San Francisco and for the second year in a row has been selected to showcase work at Art Basel Miami's Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series. Waguespack will exhibit his latest work "Climate Control" at 111 Minna Gallery through January 31, 2014.
Created in 2013, "Climate Control" vividly illustrates the symbiotic relationship between art and the environment. Waguespack was inspired by the places in which he painted - San Francisco and Palm Springs. In addition to drawing ideas from different landscapes, his technique was influenced by the climate unique to each location. For Waguespack, it's about engaging with his surroundings and working in partnership with the environment in order to achieve what he presents here.
John Waguespack is a contemporary artist residing in San Francisco. Waguespack was honored as the inaugural Artist-in-Residence at the Fairmont San Francisco in July 2013. His work has been exhibited at Art Basel Miami in 2012 and 2013, The LA Art Show, the San Francisco Fine Art Fair, Art Pad SF, Art Aspen, The McLoughlin Gallery, 111 Minna Gallery, Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts, Heath Gallery, Joyce Gordon Gallery and The Griffin Gallery.
