Carrie Ann Plank

Focusing on layers of sophisticated geometry, Carrie Ann Plank examines the space of intersecting patterns to describe new structures. The work utilizes mathematical equations to create multiple overlapping impressions that reveal additional distinct pattern formations. The resulting forms seen through mathematical plotting are space in between, the intercession, of concrete data. 

Plank’s work is included in many private and public collections including the Fine Art Archives of the Library of Congress, Fine Art Museums of San Francisco, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, the Guanlan Print Art Museum in China, and the Iraq National Library in Baghdad, as well as corporate collections including Google and Genentech.  Recent noteworthy solo shows include Themes + Projects in San Francisco, Bryant Street Gallery in Palo Alto, CA, DZINE Gallery in San Francisco, and Local Language, Oakland.

Over 50 participating artists are waiting to communicate with you!

On Saturday, Sept 26, 10AM-2PM, you can virtually visit with Shipyard artists who have signed up for ArtSpan's Open Studios .

On Sunday, Sept 27, 11AM-6PM, we will host an interactive Virtual Tour event, where you will be able to zoom into the studios of participating artists just as you would in person during a normal Open Studios event, visit our virtual store and buy direct from artists.

From Sept 25 - Oct 14 our online store will be open. Artists will offer in-person studio visits by appointment, curbside pick-ups of art purchased, and private zoom meetings. Artist contact info and scheduling options will be posted on each artist's page and next to available artworks.
