Paul Klee and Rex Ray

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

This intimate exhibition places artworks by Swiss-born modernist Paul Klee (1879–1940) alongside paintings by San Francisco artist and designer Rex Ray (1956–2015). Although separated by both time and place, their works share stunning formal similarities, including an exploration of geometric forms, the use of vibrant color and playful, organic designs. Among other works, the exhibition features a rarely exhibited pastel watercolor by Klee from 1917 and an eye-popping collage by Ray from 1999.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Paul Klee and Rex Ray :

This lil’ gem of an exhibition pairs Swiss-born modern legend Paul Klee with the late contemporary collagist Rex Ray, a rock ’n’ roll darling of the San Francisco art scene and quiet design legend in the music industry. Their shared sensibilities around geometry, line, color, balance and weight make for a lovely pairing—plus view rarely exhibited works from each master.
