Silence And Distance” features new sky, sea, land and cityscape oil paintings by Gage Opdenbrouw. This series demonstrates the artists’ versatility in subject, style and tone: they may be abstract or photographic, intimate or grand scale, and evoke emotions ranging from reminiscence to inspiration. The artist comments: “A common concern in traditional landscape painting is to capture a certain kind of light, fleeting effects of the atmosphere and color. While I am concerned with that to a certain degree, my aim is to distill such things to a point where they become less literal and more potent.”

Gage Opdenbrouw was born and raised in San Jose, California in 1977 and lives in San Francisco. He has had solo and group shows in the Bay Area and across the country. Gage is not affiliated with the CCA though his work represents an evolution and continuation for the gallery.
