Jim Houser @LeBasse Projects in Culver City
    Tuesday, 20 March 2012 /// Written by Michael C. Hsiung

Last Friday, March 10th Space 1026 founder Jim Houser (Philadelphia) new solo show, "As Quiet As It's Kept," opened at LeBasse Project's Culver City space.

Houser's show in Los Angeles featured new canvas paintings, mixed media installations as well as his signature panel/paintings. Houser has spent a week putting together his beautifully pieced installations from creating the music playing out of his hand-crafted cabinet speakers to birdhouses and wooden tables. In addition to his installation, Houser's new paintings featured some collaged elements –paper cutouts and shapes–which really can only be seen in person. "As Quiet As It's Kept" opened March 10th and runs through April 7th at LeBasse Projects in Culver City.

You should buy it dude.

Lots of Houser's panel paintings have text and a story behind them.

Another wall by Houser. Really loved the simplicity and colors of this one.

Jim Houser & Tim Kerr in Austin, TX
    Tuesday, 11 October 2011 /// Written by Manik Nakra

Mostly 2
+Tim Kerr, Jim Houser, Merrilee Challiss, Chrissy Piper and maybe, just maybe, Dan Higgs
@Domy Books
913 E Cesar Chavez, Austin, TX 78702
Exhibition runs September 17 - October 20, 2011
BACKROOM GALLERY: William Gaynor and Conner O'Leary

The best game in town, Domy Books, once gain brought another stellar show to Austin, TX. A collaborative show between Tim Kerr and Jim Houser. The show was about being friends being friendly to one another. What an unpretentious concept right? Imagine that. Chrissy Piper, Merrilee Challiss, and long time partner in crime, Dan Higgs were invited by ringmaster, Tim Kerr, to participate. -Manik Nakra

I first discovered Jim Houser's work here on Fecal Face but finally got to see it in the flesh. He absolutely KILLED IT. This wooden shingle piece was my favorite. My buddies and I geeked out over his line work. In case this whole being a badass artist thing doesnt pan out, Jim could always be one of those people who write text on a grain of rice at the mall.

Tim and Jim's installation

Always tons of great limited edition books, toys, and zines at Domy. And they are constantly getting new stuff. Book People is a nationally known bookstore in Austin. Always at the top of National Best Bookstore lists. They dont even have the exclusives that Domy gets its hands on.

Jim Houser's EP Now Available on ITunes
    Friday, 22 October 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Artist Jim Houser's new musical endeavour is now available through ITunes for only $6. We just downloaded and are giving it it's first listen. Instrumental goodness, and as a reviewer on ITunes has said, "His subtle use of electronics really adds to the quasi-lo-fi vibe of these track"... We agree and recommend the download.


My baby can't eat records. So go to ITunes and spend 6 dollars on my EP and then we can buy him some food. And if you want to tell to your friends that the album is available finally on itunes, then awesome. I can buy some food for myself then too. -Jim Houser

Jim Houser - 10yrs of Fecal Face
    Friday, 27 August 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Everyday leading up to Fecal Face's 10 Year Anniversary Show, opening Friday, September 10th @The Luggage Store (after party @Mezzanine 9-2am), we'll be adding short interviews with artists participating.

Jim Houser may have been one of my first art crushes many many years back- pre Fecal Face days when living at the Howard House I took notice of a flier for a show Jim was having at Space 1026 in Philly. I'd seen Jim's work a few other times in skate mags since Jim painted a mini ramp they had @Space 1026. Having grown up skating too, certain music and visual input were similar to mine. His work touched on those influences but so uniquely his own and original. I'll leave it to Shepard Fairey who says it best in a Swindle interview, "When I think of Jim Houser and his art, I’m alway struck by the bond he consistently forges with his audience, the way every work of his shows me a piece of myself while at the same time reflecting his own catharsis. Jim’s paintings and installations span the entire spectrum of human emotion, but he never seems to pass judgment, leaving the bias up to the viewer’s discretion."

What were you up to in the year 2000?

In 2000, I had just moved back to Philadelphia from Providence, RI. All my buddies had started Space 1026 up, and it was kind of rolling along by that point. I was skateboarding a lot. I think that was around when i started to do graphics for Toy Machine.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

Don't they say it takes 10 years to get proficient at any discipline you attack? I guess I am proficient now, plus a few extra years.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

I was the last person I knew to get a cell phone. I was the last person I knew to get an Ipod. I think anxiety keeps me from thinking to far into the future. I'm not exactly an early adopter.

How has Fecal Face Dot Com been a part of your life and/or career?

After you guys interviewed me, I would get random emails from kids who dug my work, from Israel , from Finland , from Brazil... I think a TON of people check out the website, from all over the world. I think that exposure is pretty cool.

Jim Houser at Subliminal Projects
    Wednesday, 21 July 2010 /// Written by Van Edwards

If you're in Los Angeles, be sure to get to Subliminal Projects where Jim Houser's show, The Homebody (photos), runs through Aug 7th. Jim also released a vinyl album of music through Free News Project ($24.95) which, as Jim writes: For the last 10 or so years, making music has always been the place that I turned when the paintbrush wasn't working for me. I found that even when I was burned out from making art, the act of sitting and making music would allow me not to feel like a waste of time and space. I came to realize that this was part of my whole process, so why not incorporate those sounds into the installations I do in a gallery.

This was Jim's son Seamus' first show.

Ryan De La Hoz at Seattle's Flatcolor
Tuesday, 22 April 2014 10:52

SEATTLE --- San Francisco based Ryan De La Hoz opens a show of new works at Flat Color on May 1st. We love Ryan's work and have shown it many times throughout the years. Ryan will be also showing at LA - Juxtapoz Psychedelic Show, The Well, LA, CA April 26th 2014 - SF - Paper Cuts, Spoke Art, SF, CA May 3rd 2014

Working in unconventional mediums such as woven blankets, puzzles, and faux marble, De La Hoz has pioneered an innovative style in a class of its own. Collages of white noise, flowers and tie-dye are all hand cut and assembled to create mystic portals of intrigue. Heavily influenced by themes of death and rebirth, past and present, and the collision of modern culture with antiquity; Form and Void is mysterious look into the odyssey of creation, destruction, and an examination of society at large. -show details

"Arrangement" by Michelle Fleck
Friday, 18 April 2014 10:23

Arrangement measures 24"x30", acrylic and aerosol on panel - inquires: info(at)ffdg.net

Michelle Fleck is a painter living in San Francisco. Her work focuses on the relationship between man and the landscape, and the marks we leave on it. Influenced by everyday life in the city, her paintings serve as snapshots of an ongoing intersection of the natural and man-made world. She strives to make work that has a sense of relevancy in a culture driven by a need for change and newness.

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

Speaking of Ocean Beach, if you know, you know, but if you don't... it's not what the average american thinks of when thinking of a California Beach (missing 14 yr. old yesterday). Can't believe we used to drunk naked swim at 3am in the dead if winter... being surfers probably helped us not dying.

AJ Fosik in Tokyo at The Hellion Gallery

Matt Wagner recently emailed over some photos from The Hellion Gallery in Tokyo, who recently put together a show with AJ Fosik (Portland) called Beast From a Foreign Land. The gallery gave twelve of Fosik's sculptures to twelve Japanese artists (including Hiro Kurata who is currently showing in our group show Salt the Skies) to paint, burn, or build upon.


Ferris Plock - Online Show, April 25th

FFDG is pleased to announce an exclusive online show with San Francisco based Ferris Plock opening on Friday, April 25th (12pm Pacific Time) featuring 5 new medium sized acrylic paintings on wood.


GOLD BLOOD, MAGIC WEIRDOS

Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne played host to a huge group exhibition a couple of weeks back, with "Gold Blood, Magic Weirdos" Curated by Melbourne artist Sean Morris. Gold Blood brought together 25 talented painters, illustrators and comic artists from Australia, the US, Singapore, England, France and Spain - and marked the end of the Magic Weirdos trilogy, following shows in Perth in 2012 and London in 2013.


Jeremy Fish at LA's Mark Moore Gallery

San Francisco based Fecal Pal Jeremy Fish opened his latest solo show Hunting Trophies at LA's Mark Moore Gallery last week to massive crowds and cabin walls lined with imagery pertaining to modern conquest and obsession.


John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC

Well, John Felix Arnold III is at it again. This time, he and Carolyn LeBourgios packed an entire show into the back of a Prius and drove across the country to install it at Superchief Gallery in NYC. I met with him last week as he told me about the trip over delicious burritos at Taqueria Cancun (which is right across the street from FFDG and serves what I think is the best burrito in the city) as the self proclaimed "Only overweight artist in the game" spilled all the details.


FRENCH in Melbourne

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners


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.


Flavio Samelo's Downtown Sao Paulo Murals
