"Ah Um, the title of a Charles Mingus album, is the sound one makes before introducing themselves to a large audience. With this, his second solo show, Fonseca will present his developing series of single- and mutli-plane vortex paintings.


Rich Fonseca is a self-taught painter and illustrator who uses geometry and color to convey how memories change, distort, and fracture with the passage of time. The placement of color arranges pattern over rhythm, utilizing op-art techniques to convey different layers of perception and interpretation. He lives and works in San Francisco."     -Luna Rienne
