Peter Foucault

Lifeline 2020, Lino cut and screen print, 13″x19″, A collaboration with the Crocker Block By Block Street Team

Art for the Heart is a collaborative project focused on connecting communities through art who have been significantly affected by the pandemic. Over 850 art works created by local artists were delivered to seniors in our community through the Great Plates Delivered program. Exploring ideas of food and community, the unique prints brought an unexpected bit of added connection to seniors during the holiday season. Art for the Heart was organized by the Crocker Art Museum, University Galleries, Sacramento State, the Sacramento Promise Zone, and the Mayor’s Office. Significant funding was provided through the City of Sacramento’s Office of Arts and Culture.

Local artists Luis Campos Garcia, Peter Foucault, and Aida Lizalde worked respectively with youth from Sol Collective, the Crocker Art Museum, and the Sojourner Truth African Heritage Museum to envision works of art that would inspire senior recipients; and artist and professor Summer Ventis worked with four printmaking students from Sacramento State to produce a series of prints exploring the connections between community and food. Delivered in conjunction with the Great Plates healthy meals, the uniquely made artworks aim to provide a bit of joy to over 850 households this holiday season.

Special thanks to all of the volunteers who assembled the artwork packages and to Paratransit Inc. for assisting in the delivery of the artworks.

I invite you to check out a powerful new exhibition that opened on May 13th. My reflection piece “The Power of Prints” can be viewed here:

ABOUT THE SHOW
This exhibition is reflective of SFAI’s desire to recognize the wider community of artists who have and will work both within the physicality of this unique architectural environment and with its spirit of place. The artwork included inECHOES: From There to Here accentuates a breadth of vision and concerns, underscoring the significance of art in general and the importance of studio practice as indicative of a lifetime commitment to art and creativity. We are now witness to the artists work as gifts through action and manifestation, to the culture of society, and to the wider world. In so doing, we too are mindful of the profound importance of both creative thought and action.

A huge thanks to everyone who has stopped by and visited my solo show at Pro Arts and much gratitude to the artists who collaborated with me at both performances! Here is a review of the exhibition.

 

A Dialog With Chance 

East Bay Express Staff Pick

The exploration of accident, part of modern art since the Dadaists and Surrealists, is at the center of Peter Foucault’s multimedia show, A Dialog with Chance. Comprising screenprints; ink drawings on paper, wood, and aluminum (AluPoly); a performance-related sculpture and video; and performances, one with a drawing robot, the other with a costumed musician playing a homemade didgeridoo; the exhibition explores the idea of art practice as a collaboration between the artist, the audience, and various tools and materials. The drawings are made without human gestures, that shibboleth of Abstract Expressionism: the ink is blown while the substrates are tilted, causing the ink to flow into rivulets and tendrils that suggest geography, roadways, and, occasionally, the human nervous system; Foucault also makes unusual ‘brushes’ for striking the drawings, causing explosive spattering.
