10. “Ayse Wilson: I Found Your Note” and “Jennifer Rochlin: Superbloom” at Geary Contemporary
This compelling double-header includes new paintings by Ayse Wilson, a New York-based Turkish-American artist whose work draws from memory and emotion to remind viewers of youth, innocence, and the the sense of timelessness associated with being a child. Meanwhile, Jennifer Rochlin, a painter trained in ceramics, also presents new work here. The cast of characters strung together on her coiled pots range from P22, the mountain lion immortalized for living in Los Angeles’s Griffith Park near the Hollywood sign, to Bethany Hamilton, the famous child surfer who lost her arm to a shark.
