San Francisco, CA -- FFDG is pleased to present Los Angeles based painter Dave Kinsey in his second solo show with the gallery featuring new mixed media paintings and wood sculptural works.

He was named one of the 100 most influential artists of the decade in 2012 by Complex magazine. On the design side, Kinsey currently owns and runs the design studio and brand BLK/MRKT. A founding member in 1997 with Shepard Fairey and Phillip DeWolff, he later became sole owner in 2003 and co-owner in 2004. BLK/MRKT Gallery (later Kinsey/DesForges) was introduced in Los Angeles in 2001, moving in 2003 to the Culver City Art District.

Man (or Woman) Down
    Friday, 23 August 2013 /// Written by Trippe

It's with a heavy heart to announce that we had a floater this morning at FFDG. It looks like "Shark 1" or "Shark 2" (they look the same) has passed away.

We're not sure what did him (or her) in. All we know is that our two shark looking little fish had been hanging in the corner by the heater for the last couple weeks. But it's been warm in the gallery, so heat shouldn't have been a factor. The tank has been clean with plenty of tasty fish flake food for the eatin'... In the end, you know, it doesn't matter. He (or she) has moved on to the art gallery in the sky where small little fish have multiple cubic feet to swim about with plenty of plants to hide behind and plenty of fish flakes to eat, spit out, and eat again.

Only dead fish go with the current.

Our gallery lil' fish passed today. RIP, lil' buddy.

Press Release (+Click to expand)

FFDG is pleased to present San Francisco based painters and husband and wife duo Ferris Plock and Kelly Tunstall in their second two person show with the gallery entitled “Loading” featuring new mixed media paintings inspired by the transfer of information as recontextualized through the artists unique and personal filter. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, August 16th (7-10pm). Beer and wine will be available.

With minds fine-tuned to the perception of millisecond delays, seconds feel like infinities; a slow network is a robbery of our precious messages, instant pictures, the tenuous threads that connect us, that when severed, make us ever so nervous, scared, if not very very angry. These moments between are indeed a disquieting reality check. To be inaccessible or to be kept waiting is almost to die.

In this instant culture, we look at who is selling, who is buying, and what a search actually is: a reach of a skeleton, waiting to be fleshed in with missing lyrics, skin, muscles, bones. At the end of it all are our ever-hungry hands and eyes, starving for the result of a search sequence, the next delivery to add to our lives, the next bit of like for the status update of one of too many personae; we are always searching and forever loading.

“Loading” is Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock’s wry take on the recent Bay Area tech explosion; a follow up to 2012’s FFDG “Edible Complex” exhibition; a study of San Francisco’s food culture.

About Ferris Plock & Kelly Tunstall

The experimental yet classically grounded work of Ferris Plock and Kelly Tunstall lives comfortably in a space between graphic expression, stylized representation, surrealism, and sketch. Their preferred medium is a combination of acrylic, collage, spray paint, pencil, pen and ink, gold leaf. The binary contrast of masculine and feminine as the major theme in their work is also a very real and personal visual conversation between their imagined realities. Enhanced by complex, delicate layers, their bold pieces exist not only as individual pieces, but as part of larger installations or site-specific works.

Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock live and paint in San Francisco with their two sons. They have exhibited extensively locally, nationally, and internationally both together and separately. Plock and Tunstall recently completed a landmark commission for San Francisco’s Michelin-starred restaurant, SPQR. Tunstall also completed a major body of work to be on view permanently at Oakland’s A16. Tunstall and Plock have worked or are currently working with the San Francisco Arts Commission on their Passport initiative.

Future Colors of America
    Friday, 26 July 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Los Angeles based artists Matt Furie and Aiyana Udesen swung through FFDG the other day for a howdy "nice to see ya".

Why were they back visiting their old home of San Francisco, we asked? "Rats", the couple, who have had rats for pets for the last few years, answer. "We drove up to grab a couple from the animal shelter and swung through to check out Sylvia's show"... Well, howdy, guys.

The duo will open their 3rd three person show "Future Colors of America" with Albert Reyes (LA) on Friday the 13th of September at FFDG... If it's anything like last year's show, it's going to be another great one.

With their best prom pose, Los Angeles based artists Matt Furie and Aiyana Udesen are photographed at FFDG in front of Sylvia Ji's piece "Mission Otomi".

Sylvia Ji weaves textiles into her beautiful Mexican death obsession...
    Friday, 19 July 2013 /// Written by Van Edwards

"Never mind the mezcal, there's more than a bit of mescaline about the psychedelically tinged work of Los Angeles painter Sylvia Ji, which in her latest collection Interwoven continues previous meditations on the Mexican culture's compelling obsession with beauty and death through studies of women and textiles.

We Heart covers Sylvia Ji's latest

The Day of the Dead looms large in these macabre yet strangely attractive acrylic on wood paintings, but with Interwoven Ji has moved away from the traditional dress and colonial era ballgowns of her previous collections, introducing shawls and blankets as a distinct but organically enmeshed element. This series also sees more abstract work, with camouflaged skulls made of petals, leaves, birds and animals gently pushing out at the viewer from a nearly continuous background with the effect of an optical illusion, hinting at the decay in nature and the transience of beauty. Interwoven can be seen until 10th August at San Francisco gallery FFDG." -WeHeart.co.uk

Los Angeles based painter, Sylvia Ji, will open Interwoven on Friday, July 12th (7-10pm) at San Francisco's FFDG. Sylvia's new acrylic paintings on wood are inspired by Mexican textile and female figurative elements. A limited edition print will be released at the opening and Sylvia will be present for signing.

Press Release (+Click to expand)


FFDG is pleased to present Los Angeles based painter Sylvia Ji in her first solo show with FFDG entitled "Interwoven" featuring new acrylic paintings on wood inspired by Mexican textile and female figurative elements. A limited edition print will be released at the opening and Sylvia will be present for signing. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, July 12th (7-10pm). Beer and wine will be available. The show runs through August 10th.

For Sylvia Ji's new collection she's continued on her Day of the Dead narrative frequent in her paintings, while also expanding and incorporating traditional folk patterns in an effort to weave together the old and the new. These works are shaped by the illustrative aesthetic of mexican textiles, the intricate ornamentation of pottery and tile work, and a sensitivity to bold colors and harmonious symmetry. All works are acrylic on wood panels, evoking the fluid and organic elements represented to the viewer.

Ji's work encapsulates an alluring beauty that is both cutting edge and a nod to time-honored technique. Her paintings are symbolic reflections of herself, portraits of people she knows or nameless faces set in a landscape of fleeting and decaying beauty. Possessing an artistic voice as unique as the times we live in, Ji is at once contemplative, spiritual, enigmatic, and yet whimsically funny. Above all else, it is perhaps beauty that emerges as her defining characteristic, and her art reflects this: an extension of herself; a passionate appreciation of simple aesthetic pleasure fused with intimately complex subject matter.

Sylvia Ji was born in 1982, and raised in San Francisco, California, where she received her BFA at the Academy of Art University. Upon graduation, she relocated to Los Angeles in 2005 where she currently resides. Ji's work has been featured in numerous gallery exhibitions including White Walls, Thinkspace, Lineage Gallery, BLVD Gallery, and Art Basel's Art Fair Now. She has been profiled in publications such as Juxtapoz, Trace, and Mesh Magazine, and her painting 'Dona Dolorosa' graced the cover of the LA Weekly.

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.

Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:37

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON

Alison Blickle @NYC's Kravets Wehby Gallery

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.


Interview w/ Kevin Earl Taylor

We haven't been featuring many interviews as of late. Let's change that up as we check in with a few local San Francisco artists like Kevin Earl Taylor here whom we studio visited back in 2009 (PHOTOS & VIDEO). It's been awhile, Kevin...


Peter Gronquist @The Shooting Gallery

If you like guns and boobs, head on over to the Shooting Gallery; just don't expect the work to be all cheap ploys and hot chicks. With Make Stuff by Peter Gronquist (Portland) in the main space and Morgan Slade's Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in the project space, there is plenty spectacle to be had, but if you look just beyond it, you might actually get something out of the shows.


Jay Bo at Hamburg's Circle Culture

Berlin based Jay Bo recently held a solo show at Hamburg's Circle Culture featuring some of his most recent paintings. We lvoe his work.


NYCHOS @Fifty24SF

Fifty24SF opened Street Anatomy, a new solo show by Austrian artist Nychos a week ago last Friday night. He's been steadily filling our city with murals over the last year, with one downtown on Geary St. last summer, and new ones both in the Haight and in Oakland within the last few weeks, but it was really great to see his work up close and in such detail.

Nate Milton emailed over this great short Gator Skater which is a follow-up to his Dog Skateboard he emailed to us back in 2011... Any relation to this Gator Skater?

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.

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

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.
