Cabrillo Gallery Exhibit Insistence of Memory Highlights Artists
Randy Hussong and David Linger
Exhibit Runs February 7 - March 11. Opening Reception February 17, 4:30 - 6:00 PM

Aptos, CA— The Cabrillo Gallery presents the exhibition Insistence of Memory: The Complex Screen Print, the art work of David Linger and Randy Hussong screen printing on porcelain and mixed media. Insistence of Memory opens with a free public reception on Thursday, February 17, 4:30-6:00 PM and is followed by an artist talk at 6:00 PM in the gallery.

David Linger's ceramic work adapts screen-printing and intaglio techniques for use on thin sheets of fine porcelain. The indistinct images and superimposed text that fade in and out of visibility on the surface of the panels represent transitory and inaccurate memories mined from the quiet corners of his own personal history. The precious, eternal nature of porcelain acts as counterpoint to questionable truth, and preserves the function of the material as a document of the banalities of human life. David is a lecturer at both Mills College, in Oakland, and the University of California, Berkeley, and is the recipient of the prestigious Jay DeFeo Award for Excellence and Promise and the Nell Sinton Scholarship, Mills College.

Garage inventors, hot rod culture and rock 'n' roll fuel Randy Hussong's imagery while the content remains open to everything from alcoholism, the Gulf War, identity issues, environmental issues, genetic engineering and cloning. Humor plays an important role in his work to activate and subvert the context of his sculptures and prints. A lecturer at UC Berkeley's Art Practice Faculty, Hussong teaches sculpture and printmaking. Hussong's work was featured in the Made in California exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (with catalog) and has been exhibited at New Langton Arts, San Francisco, the Oakland Museum and the Di Rosa Preserve in Napa, California. He is represented by Gallery Paule Anglim in San Francisco and is the recipient of the prestigious James D. Phelan Art Award.
