Playground Legends
@Fifty24SF
group print show
SAN FRANCISCO --- If you haven't gotten all of your holiday shopping done yet, head over to Fifty24SF for some really nice prints. Ranging in price from about $40 to about $4,000, there is certainly enough variety to please anyone. Besides this convenience (and if you're ahead of the shopping curve), you should also head over there to just check them out.

Fitting with the title Legends, this show has work from just about every artist involved with the gallery over the years, and moving many of these images from the front of a T shirt to the gallery wall really gives some perspective on them. It's definitely worth a look and if you have any family in town, this is a great way to show them what SF is made of.

This Will Never Work @SOEX

SAN FRANCISCO --- Southern Exposure was packed Friday night with the opening of This Will Never Work, this year's edition of their annual juried show of emerging Northern California artists.

The gallery was full of works, but the crowd made it very difficult to look at most of them, and with several works on the floor throughout, it felt like walking on egg shells to avoid both the sculptures and others' toes. It may be my immature taste, but my favorite pieces engaged with humor ranging from an installation of the gallery's own hammer extracting a nail, to an attempt to send a rock to Mars, to pubescent t-shirts made of paper. Maybe this will never work, but I definitely walked out of the gallery with a smile, so it worked for me.

@Dolby Chadwick
November 6 - December 7, 2013
SAN FRANCISCO --- The Dolby Chadwick Gallery has the painting game on lock. With Joshua Meyer's (b.'74 Cambridge, MA) new show, Rustle, Sparkle, Flutter, Float, the gallery has opened yet another show of really nice paintings.

With a thick, impasto finish, Meyer's paintings feel like treasures. As you get lost in the jagged confusion of thick swatches of color, figures emerge in the most subtle ways. The colors are enticing, but these figures are mesmerizing. I could get lost in these canvases for days. Simply, these are some really great paintings and I highly recommend you go see them before the show closes on December 7th.

Wingspan, 2013, Oil on canvas, 46 x 120 inches

Once I Was, 2009, Oil on canvas, 30 x 30 inches

Joshua Meyer was born in 1974 in Lubbock, TX. He currently lives and works in Cambridge, MA. He earned his BA from Yale University in 1996 and has since exhibited across the United States, Asia and Europe. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including a prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2008 and a grant from the San Francisco-based Sustainable Arts Foundation in 2011. This will be Meyer’s third solo exhibition at the Dolby Chadwick Gallery. A catalog will be published on the occasion of the show and available through the Gallery.

Jeff Depner at NYC's Nancy Margolis
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 15 November 2013 12:33

Vancouver based painter Jeff Depner ('12 interview) is currently showing new paintings in VARIATIONS BLACK NAPKINS at NYC's Nancy Margolis Gallery through Dec 7th. -PHOTOS

The work ebbs and flows between graphic qualities and thick painterly styles with muted but contemporary feeling colors. The constant process of ‘improvised moves' allows some of the work to be based in grid like structures. It allows some of the smaller paintings a chance for inquiry in constructive qualities and aspects of painting, inserting his work into the long history of painting. -our '12 interview

In his abstract acrylic paintings, Vancouver-based Depner explores compositional structure through the relationship between colors. His works’ painted layers create singular, functioning systems of interacting parts, yet juxtapositions permeate—between the architectonic and the organic, the graphic and the painterly, the matte and the opulent.

ICY Signs + Stephen Powers
ICY Signs - Perfection is Standard, Mistakes Cost Extra
October 24 to November 16, 2013
@Joshua Liner, NYC
I moved home to the Bay Area about 4 years ago and recently had the opportunity to visit New York City for the first time since. Having missed Barry McGee & Raymond Pettibon by a day, I felt lucky to have an old friend clue me into the ICY Signs show when I arrived. PHOTOS

Over the last decade, Steven Powers has proven his talent, wit and superior work ethic many times over. Beyond getting to study his work up close, it was neat to see the talent of all the other sign painters and collaborators he keeps company with. Had I known John would be posting these shit photos I would have documented their work a bit more properly. Take a minute to visit the gallery's selected work pages to see for yourself. - Adam C.

Julian Lethbridge & Chuck Close @John Berggruen
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Tuesday, 12 November 2013 10:44

The John Berggruen gallery is beautiful. With floor-to-ceiling windows and a view to downtown, the Thursday night opening of NYC's Julian Lethbridge's new show Paintings was unmistakably a fancy affair. While these incredibly expensive paintings didn't do much for me, I was pleasantly surprised that I caught the Chuck Close show upstairs.

Chuck Close's show has works on paper that Close made in the last forty years, spanning his long and illustrious career. Because of the opening downstairs, I got to be alone with Close's works and really engage with them. However, I would guess that you too could spend some alone time with these wonderful paintings and drawings, a great escape if you're downtown doing any holiday shopping. The serenity of the gallery might just help you get through the holidays without killing any other shoppers, so go ahead and stop by.

For random additional reading, read about the time that painter Lethbridge and his girlfriend, millionaire Anne Bass, were held captive and injected with mystery liquid by fired employee in ransom bid HERE

Tuesday, 22 April 2014 10:52

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

This morning we take a closer look at this beautiful painting by San Francisco based Michelle Fleck now showing at FFDG.

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.

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

ClipODay II: Needles & Pens 11 Years!!

Congrats on our buddies at Needles and Pens on being open and rad for 11 years now. Mission Local did this little short video featuring Breezy giving a little heads up on what Needles and Pens is all about.


BANDES DE PUB / STRIP BOX

In a filmmaker's thinking, we wish more videos were done in this style. Too much editing and music with a lacking in actual content. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.


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

Our buddy Flavio Samelo down there in Brazil does all kinds of great work including this recent mural project in downtown Sao Paulo in front of one of the most important modern buildings of Oscar Niemeyer from the 60's, THE COPAN.
