Document is pleased to present Petrichor, a selection on New Works by Oakland based artist Erin Jane Nelson.

The exhibition is comprised of quilts, flocked aluminum prints, animal cages, ceramic sculptures, a rotary rock tumbler, and other ready-mades. The works in this exhibition span a year long project spent describing the conditions of Nelson’s civic body in the Bay Area and the various affectations (political, aesthetic, etc) those conditions have produced. Borrowing from the visual language of street photography, many of images in the show were made on her commute to work in downtown San Francisco. An essay by Nick Irvin accompanies the exhibition.

Erin Jane Nelson is an artist living in Oakland, California. She studied at The Cooper Union School of Art in New York and The Malmö Art Academy in Sweden. Recently, her work has been shown at Interstate Gallery (Brooklyn), Jancar Jones Gallery (Los Angeles), Peregrine Program (Chicago), and Important Projects (Oakland). Her published projects include Lollie, Penny, Poems (Publication Studio Oakland, 2014), and Broon (Gottlund Verlag, 2012). She has a forthcoming solo exhibition with Hester (New York City).

Geraldo de Barros

Geraldo de Barros was born in São Paulo in 1923 and lived there until his death in 1998. He started his career as a traditional painter, but began an intense period of experimentation with the photographic medium in 1946, which culminated in his Fotoformas exhibition at the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) in 1951. The exhibition was a watershed for Brazilian photography and led to de Barros receiving a scholarship to study engraving in Paris. While in Europe he travelled extensively, meeting influential artists and encountering key movements in art and design. He returned to Brazil and established a successful career as an artist and industrial designer. A key figure in Brazillian Concrete, Abstract and Pop art he was a founding member of many influential groups including Grupo 15, Galeria Rex, Grupo Ruptura. He established the design co-operative Unilabor and furniture company Hobjeto Industry. After a series of strokes de Barros began in 1996 to work on a series of collage works using his ‘leftover’ family photographs. Entitled Sobras, de Barros continued to work on the series until his death in 1998.
