Project One Gallery currently presents Microblast, an exhibition of paintings by Jet Martinez and Kelly Ording.

Martinez and Ording, who live in Oakland with their two young children and have shared a studio for seven years, have each garnered individual acclaim for their strikingly vivid, intricately patterned public murals and studio art exhibitions throughout the Bay Area and around the world.

Microblast is the couple’s first combined exhibit, reflecting a creative and personal bond between two artists whose work intersects and converges as they pursue similar themes, motifs, and interests. The exhibition offers a unique opportunity to consider the dynamic, conversational interplay between their respective styles. Kelly and Jet’s combined preoccupation with repetition of detail, vibrant use of color, and a juxtaposition of natural and geometric shapes results in a mesmerizing series of images that command viewers’ attention with a powerful blast of energy while simultaneously imparting a hypnotic sense of calm.
