Christopher Burch's Br'er Rabbit
    Thursday, 20 February 2014 /// Written by Trippe

Oakland based John Felix Arnold (showing at FFDG in Oct '14) emailed over some work from his friend and artist Christopher Burch whose show The Missed Adventures of Br'er Rabbit and Br'er Death in the Land of Shadows: Stepping Razors, Chapter 22-Dem Bloodletting Blues (PHOTOS) just ran at Hoffman Lachance Contemporary in St. Louis last month.

Christopher Burch & John Felix Arnold both got their MFAs from SFAI at the same time back in '06.

Anyone elses' parents read them Br'er Rabbit stories when they were kids? Guess if your parents were from the south and were born in the 1920s, like my dad, then maybe.

The Br'er Rabbit stories can be traced back to trickster figures in Africa, particularly the hare that figures prominently in the storytelling traditions in West, Central, and Southern Africa. These tales continue to be part of the traditional folklore of numerous peoples throughout those regions. In the Akan traditions of West Africa, the trickster is usually the spider Anansi, though the plots in his tales are often identical with those of stories of Br'er Rabbit.

Supersonic Electronic @Spoke Art
    Wednesday, 22 January 2014 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

Spoke Art opened their annual Supersonic Electronic (PHOTOS) show last Thursday night to a packed crowd. The work spilled from their original gallery space into the new space they have acquired two doors down, and it allowed for as much viewing space as was possible, as the show was not only full of people, but works by over forty artists.

Curated by Zach Tutor, this was the third installment of Supersonic Electronic at the gallery and this year's grouping provided a cohesive experience, albeit strictly two-dimensional, as each piece operated together fludily. Many of the artists displayed are regulars at the gallery and if painting and drawing are your thing, take the time to check out this show. With this many works, you are sure to not be disappointed.

Beth Van Hoesen @The George Krevsky Gallery
    Wednesday, 15 January 2014 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

SAN FRANCISCO --- The George Krevsky Gallery opened Beth Van Hoesen: Portraits from the Castro last Thursday night at their downtown gallery and it was truly a local event.

Housed in the 77 Geary St. building on the second floor, not many tourists stopped in, but there was a crowd of locals who gathered to enjoy the works. Each piece was donated by the Beth Van Hoesen trust to help raise funds for a new public monument in San Francisco, the Rainbow Honor Walk. The works were created during a 22-year period in which Hoesen lived on 22nd at the top of the Castro, in which she documented her neighbors, including many members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

The highly stylistic and flattened, yet realistic and detailed paintings highlight the intimate relationships fostered in this colorful neighborhood and are definitely worth a look before the show closes at the end of February.

Ferris Plock @The Shooting Gallery
    Monday, 06 January 2014 /// Written by Trippe

SAN FRANCISCO --- We're back after a little Holiday breather with some images from Ferris Plock's (PREVIEWED) show which just completed at The Shooting Gallery. Rachel Ralph documents:

Our friend Ferris Plock let us see his new body of work with the opening of Unrest at the Shooting Gallery. Most of the works were on larger canvases and it was really great to be able to see all of the detail not only because of the size, but also because of the muted color palette of gold, grey, white and pastels. Clearly this show deserves a visit, and Ferris deserves a major congratulations on a great show. (STUDIO VISIT)

Unrest

Shooting Gallery is pleased to present Unrestby Ferris Plock.

Eric Petersen Illustration
    Thursday, 19 December 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Illustrator Eric Petersen hails from Olympia, Washington <-- My style is influenced by instructional graphics, video games and the look of vintage comics of the 1940s. I draw uniform lines on a computer to strip away some of the human element and expressive quality seen in non-digital work. I use perspective and unnatural colors to set up a voyeuristic feeling and create an unsettling mood. I am interested in the combination of a purely functional illustration style with an emotional scene.

Jeremy Fish Opening a Solo Show in August at FFDG
Tuesday, 15 April 2014 09:33

Met up with Jeremy Fish last night to catch up and discuss his upcoming solo show opening this August at San Francisco's FFDG. Don't want to give too much away, but the guy is very busy these days. You know the giant pink bronze statue will be built and installed at the corner of Haight and Laguna welcoming those to the Haight (check) in 2015? Going to be incredible.

Check photos from his last San Francisco solo show in 2012, and mark your calendar for August as his next solo show opens at FFDG.

Statue Of A Homeless Jesus Startles A Wealthy Community
Monday, 14 April 2014 10:20

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb. The sculptor, who has an affinity for street art, created it to remind us that "We believe that that's the kind of life Jesus had," Buck says. "He was, in essence, a homeless person." ~READ ON

Art or Vandalism? See the World’s First Graffiti Drone
Saturday, 12 April 2014 10:30

I attached a cradle with a spray paint can and other hardware to the drone. I created a series of paintings that are larger, about maybe 3 feet by 3 feet all the way up to 25 feet by 15 feet … And basically, I achieved the perfect air pressure, the perfect weight of the paint and the perfect materials so that the drone didn’t freak out when I attached these mechanisms to it, Katsu said. --continue reading

Is It Curtains For San Francisco's Art Scene?
Tuesday, 08 April 2014 09:35

We all know that San Francisco is going through aches and (growing?)/ shrinking artist pains these days as San Francisco property values sky rocket due to the tech infestation going on around the entire Bay Area. Maybe you work in tech and love it, but since this is an art website, we're interested to how this is affecting artists trying to make ends meet.

Some galleries have been forced to close due to 300% rent hikes. Many artists have fled to Oakland, LA and NYC in search of affordable housing and a more vibrant art scene... But we wanna know what you think of how it's going here in San Francisco. How are you making it work? What's your take on the art scene or lack there of? Do you think things are on the up and up or down and out here in San Francisco? Are artists a bunch of complainers and every thing looks great or is it curtains for San Francisco's artistic community? Thoughts

Nikki McClure at Needles & Pens, Friday 4/11
Wednesday, 09 April 2014 09:42

SAN FRANCISCO --- Nikki McClure, known for her painstakingly intricate and beautiful paper cuts, returns to Needles & Pens with an opening reception this Friday, April 11th - She'll be showing original papercuts for the book, "May the Stars Drip Down" - show details

This approach was born and bred out of the Olympia, Washington independent music scene. There, local artists emphasized everything handmade and self-published. The idea was to do a lot with a little. The result was a rich community sharing artistry and ideas. McClure found herself deeply embedded in this community which shaped an ethic of hands-on and accessible artmaking. - show details

Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.

Brian Barneclo's 225' Food Chain Mural

San Francisco based Brian Barneclo was commissioned in 2006 to paint a HUGE mural on the side of Foods Co on Shotwell at 14th Streets. After some time on its own, it got pretty taxed by misc graffiti and pigeon shit.


A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the citys shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesnt end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.


John Felix Arnold @BRIC House, Brooklyn

In the year or so that I've known Felix, almost every one of his shows has had a live musical element and it seems perfect that he would be included in a show called Art Into Music. He commandeered the corner of the gallery to create an installation that houses not only his drawing, but also an entire drum kit, amps and a dude playing a guitar. The warm wood paneling stands out in contrast to the matte grey boom-box tower and the muted wall of album covers and looks like a beacon calling to the crowd saying "this is what you shoud be looking at." However, it's not in a "look at me" attention-starved desperation, more like a welcoming invitation into his world.
