Naming Gallery

‘In 1923 Kurt Schwitters began to construct his ultimate work of art. It began as disparate pieces of collage and assemblages round the studio walls, which overtime were constructed by string, then wire, then wood. His Merzbau gradually took over the downstairs and when it required more space for expansion, Schwitters put a hole in the ceiling and gave notice to his upstairs lodgers. Into the individual “grottos” of the Merzbau Schwitters placed a bizarre collection of objects gathered from his friends and fellow artists, anything from a stolen sock to a broken pencil.’

Always moving, never #rn #JoseFigueroa x #SofieRamos make temporal space: a moving map, ‘a practical engagement with the world.’ A golden egg hangs from a thread adjacent to a pink, orange, flare of candle-cake licked thickly to the wall. Follow a pink path around the gallery, along the walls, ceiling and entryways.

Sofie and Figueroa packed @naming_gallery with installation that makes wall-space a living object, a doorway ever on the move.

‘“[I remember] The night he introduced himself in the Café des Westens. “I am a painter,” he said, “and I nail my pictures together.”’

Please join us May 18th for the opening reception of a site specific installation at Naming Gallery by Jose Joaquin Figueroa and Sofie Ramos! 6-9 pm •


JOSE FIGUEROA is an Oakland based artist born in Caracas, Venezuela. Figueroa uses postmodern strategies to create artworks that reflect on the fragility of fleeting moments, the complications of interlayers of identities and the impossibility of a single perspective. •


SOFIE RAMOS was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1990 and now lives and works in San Francisco, CA. She graduated with an MFA in Art Practice from UC Berkeley in 2015 and received a BA in Visual Art from Brown University in 2013. Known for her colorful and chaotic installation-based paintings that incorporate the architecture of the existing space as well as sculptural constructions and found objects, she explores spatiality in painting as a physical and tangible experience and exposes/amplifies the connections and relationships between works of art and their physical and social contexts.
