Budding Boy by Julie Heffernan, oil on canvas, 78 x 56 inches, 2010 - click to enlarge

This coming Saturday, September 3, Julie Heffernan's highly anticipated solo show Boy O Boy II will be opening at Catharine Clark Gallery, 150 Minna Street, San Francisco.

Since it's totally impossible to notice the subtleties, the intricate microcosms (see for instance the tiny ladder in Budding Boy bottom left), the cultivated pastoral or the symbiotic opulence which are all so very essential to Julie's work in an online reproduction, I would highly recommend you to go see Boy O Boy II in person if you happen to be in S.F..

The official reception is actually not until September 10, 4 - 7 PM. The exhibition will remain on show until October 29, 2011.
