“In Time and Repetition” by Leeza Doreian & “Researching and Remembering" by Charlene Tan have been postponed indefinitely. Curated by Tracy Wheeler & Theodora Mauro of SATELLITE OF. LOVE both shows explore the dedication and labor-intensive love that goes into honoring details and pattern making inspired by textiles.

“In Time and Repetition” by Leeza Doreian focuses on four second-hand items discovered in different parts of the United States: a polyester shirt, a polyester skirt, a woven skirt, and a tablecloth. Doreian carefully reproduces the patterns and shapes of these mass-produced fabrics using gouache and oil paints. Her works recast shadows and angles that are often overlooked and transforms them into singular poetic experiences. 

“Researching and Remembering” by Charlene Tan is a mixed media collection inspired by patterns and textiles found in tribal weavings from the Philippines and made using materials connected to the Filipino food and culture (ube, tapioca, halaya). Combining digital prints of ancient symbolic and ritualistic patterns with surprising textures and colors, Tan beautifully binds her art practice to her extensive research of her personal Filipina-American heritage to investigate culture, ancestry and embodied memory. 
 

Leeza Doreian is an Oakland based artist whose work explores time, attention, pattern, and conservation. Doreian received her MFA from the University of Texas at Austin. Her work has appeared in group and solo exhibitions in numerous galleries and museums, including: Artist Space, PS1, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Root Division, The Lab, Fine Arts gallery at San Francisco State and the Barbara Walters Gallery at Sarah Lawrence College. She is a Teaching Artist at Creativity Explored, and co-founded the art cooperative Mending Collective.

Charlene Tan is an interdisciplinary artist whose work is thematically focused on the immigrant diaspora and its repercussions, post-assimilation identity, and anthropological investigations of nationalism and cultural heritage. Her work has been included in solo and group exhibitions in the US, and is part of several private collections. She holds a BA History and Theory of Contemporary Art with a focus on New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute. Houston, Texas born, she lived in the Philippines before moving to San Francisco for her education and work, and is currently a visiting artist at Minnesota Street Studios.

SATELLITE OF. LOVE, founded in 2016, is a response to the limited support available for Bay Area mid-career artists. Collaborators Theodora Mauro and Tracy Wheeler create exhibitions to showcase artists who combine strong conceptual thinking with masterful technique. A love of beauty, architecture, materiality and wit propels SATELLITE OF. LOVE to search for new opportunities and ways of nurturing artists within the local art scene and beyond.
