Negative Space Gallery


Negative Space primarily shows works on paper created by Bay Area based artists. However, we do not always stick to our own rules. We will show other work on occasion that inspires, excites or otherwise needs to be shown.

If you’d like to submit your work for consideration please include dimensions, medium, price, title, year and low resolution photos of your work. Send artist submissions here.

    “Making photographs serves as a medium to express my interest in the unexpected and density of relationships that we share with others and our built and natural environment. Through the use of the photographic frame, I explore the tenuous nature of looking and seeing, hoping to continuously expand the questions that it can arouse.

    By framing and capturing these environments, I materialize my own experiences with the aim of expressing a curiosity in a larger collective unconscious. I am often looking for images I have seen previously and hope to recreate in my ongoing photographic practice – with the goal of arousing further interest and careful looking and framing in the process.”
