Ratio 3, 903 Guerrero, San Francisco, CA 94110

Opening reception: February 2, 2007, 6-8pm.

Ratio 3 is pleased to present thirtythree days, new work by Mitzi Pederson, on view from February 2 to March 6, 2007.

Mitzi Pederson will present a combination of different sculptures made of various materials. She tests the threshold of wood and cellophane by locking them into simple states of tension. Pederson also molds reflective paper into suspended shapes, distorting the visual space. The resulting curves create areas of reflected color and perceptive depths. This exhibition runs concurrently with Mitzi Pederson's participation in the 2006 SECA Art Award exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, January 27 - April 22, 2007.

Mitzi Pederson was born in 1976 in Stuart, Florida. She received a B.F.A. from Carnegie Mellon University in 1999. In 2004 she completed an M.F.A. in Painting and Drawing at the California College of the Arts. She has had solo exhibitions at White Columns, New York (2006) and Duchess, Chicago (2006). Her work was included in Louis Morris , Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (2006), Five Habitats: Squatting at New Langton, New Langton Arts, San Francisco (2006), Pure Land, Ratio 3 (2006), Land of the Free, Jack Hanley Gallery, San Francisco (2004), and Color Wheel Oblivion, Marella Arte Contemporanea, Milan, Italy (2004).
