In honor of the Greenbuild International Expo in San Francisco this year, Sherwood Design Engineers and Sherwood Gallery are pleased to announce an exhibition of selected works by San Francisco based artist John Roloff. The exhibition titled, The Sea Within the Sea consists of video documentation and photographic work. In the selected works, Sherwood strives to portray environmental change in geologic time, and the interpretation of these processes through the lens of human and urban development. John Roloff depicts the intersection between science, art, nature and culture; and observes with great curiosity and amazement nature’s relationship to everything else.

John Roloff is a visual artist who works conceptually with site, process and natural systems. He is known primarily for his outdoor kiln/furnace projects done from the late 1970’s to the early 1990’s as well as other large-scale environmental and gallery installations investigating geologic and natural phenomena. He studied geology at UC Davis, Davis, CA with Professor Eldridge Moores and others during the formative days of plate tectonics in the mid-1960’s. Subsequently, he studied art with Bob Arneson and William T. Wiley also at UC Davis in the late 1960’s. In addition to numerous environmental, site-specific installations in the US, Canada and Europe, his work has been included in exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, UC Berkeley Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian Institution, Photoscene Cologne and the Venice Architectural and Art Biennales. He has received 3 artists visual arts fellowships from the NEA, a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship and a California Arts Council grant for visual artists. He is represented by the Lance Fung Gallery in NY and Gallery Paule Anglim in San Francisco. He is currently a Professor of Sculpture at the San Francisco Art Institute.
