John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC
    Thursday, 17 April 2014 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

Carolyn LeBourgios

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.

Our sign is looking rough these days. Time to reach out to a sign painter.

The first stop of the trip was of course to FFDG as he was part of our group show Salt the Skies before literally hitting the road out of our front door. He and Carolyn headed straight down south and went to Texas before heading to New Orleans, and then up the East Coast to NYC. At first glance, the 'Stand with Israel' sign just seemed like an odd, East Texas painted wall, but I have recently learned that some of the biggest supporters of the Israeli conflict are in the bible belt, as Christians in this area believe that in order to bring upon Armageddon, war must happen (between Israelis and Palestinians) in which Christians will be raptured and Jews will be forced to convert to Christianity to be saved. While I'm not going to jump into that argument, this wall is a little piece of that struggle, even in all of its oddly painted glory.

The rest of the south, through New Orleans and the Carolinas, brought Pope dogs, oil fields (straight out of a scene of True Detective), and delicious snacks along the way before getting into the grind that is New York. Once the duo arrived at Superchief in Manhattan, it was on. Installation on both floors of the gallery started immediately and the show was hung efficiently for the opening of Excorrigia – The Scourge. The works range from his Astroknot figures on larger wood panels to more abstract, smaller works and give the show a lot of diversity while still maintaining its consistency. As another portal into his world of Unstoppable Tomorrow, Excorrigia allows visitors to experience the post-apocalyptic feeling generated by the works while still maintaining themselves as impeccably-produced works of art.

The opening was a gathering of Felix's friends, both old and new, and was just another step in his career. He will be back showing in San Francisco this spring and fall with solo shows at both the Shooting Gallery in May and here at FFDG in October. Keep your eyes open for him, as I know he'll be up late at night painting, eating the most delicious food the bay has to offer, and giving us access to his world and his work. I can't wait.

John Felix Arnold & SFMoMa's Windows
    Friday, 21 June 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

SAN FRANCISCO -- Now, after a life changing experience during his residency in Japan, the culmination of years of art making for John Felix Arnold III can be seen in the 147 Minna Street windows of the SFMoMA as part of the SFMoMa's Artists Gallery. This makes him the only artist currently showing at the physical location of the museum.

Words & Photos: Rachel Ralph - rachel(at)fecalface.com

Felix uses the windows to his full advantage, creating epic scenes in his world of Unstoppable Tomorrow. Complete with dirt scattered along the bottom of them, the works show his renewed love of process and soulful art making, as well as his technical and compositional skills on a grand, new scale. The details of his line work emerge from and hide behind clouds of polyurethane and wood stain on the 8 foot tall panels and while viewing them, you can really enter this world for yourself. Also his minimal use of found object, installation style framing is a direct conversation with his past, larger installation works, yet is subtle and refined enough to allow the viewer to be enveloped by the paintings themselves.

111 Minna held an opening reception for the work last Saturday, and the crowd created the perfect intimate environment complete with performances by Jaysonik, G.U.T.S. and Felix himself. The work will be up for the next three months and definitely deserve a look if you’re in the Bay Area this summer. You can view Felix's other works at his newly re-launched website www.felixthethirdrock.com.

John Felix Arnold III in Japan (Part 4)
    Thursday, 30 May 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

Well, it looks like John Felix Arnold rocked Tokyo with his opening with Koutaro Ooyama at Spes Lab a few weeks back (PHOTOS). Even a language barrier couldn't prevent the success of their collaboration. They invited everyone they met on trains, in cars, cafes, bars, restaurants, and people responded by attending, and bringing their families and friends as well.

Visitors interacted with the work and according to Felix, "people made out on it, people were jumping up and down and going fucking crazy!" A family also brought their child who played on it like a jungle gym, so responses were varied, but nevertheless playful. The night was definitely a successful culmination to his journey in Japan, but I will be very interested to see how this affects his work which will be shown in SFMoMA's windows starting June 8th. I guess we'll all just have to wait and see. Stay tuned. -Rachel Ralph -- rachel(at)fecalface.com

John Felix Arnold III leaves for Japan tomorrow and it's going to be a transformative five weeks for him. This trip, complete with meditative and artistic practice, will provide an intimate understanding of his own process and spiritual growth in this world and in his world of Unstoppable Tomorrow. Unstoppable Tomorrow, a trope Felix works through in every piece, is a post-apocalyptic world in which people have no choice but to work together to stay alive. By experiencing ancient temples and gardens first-hand through deep meditative states as well as daily interactions and exploration, we will see new conversations arise in his work. These new visions will carry his thoughts on the necessity of future spirituality further into the global stage. Instead of staying isolated in his studio, he is taking his practice across the world, opening it and himself up to new people and experiences and I cannot wait to see how this affects his process.

Felix will continue to update me on his travels, and I will continue to post them to the site as a way to see how this trip specifically affects his work. By diving head-first into a culture on the other side of the world, this trip will reveal a lot about him as an artist. He is removing all barriers imposed upon him by his life in the states while taking on new challenges and unforeseen experiences abroad. Keep watching the site to see how this develops before seeing the work in person when it opens on June 8th here in San Francisco, at his project In Memory Of... an installation of new work created specifically for the SFMoMA's windows. -Rachel Ralph (rachel(at)fecalface.com)

If you don't know about Oakland-based artist John Felix Arnold III, you should.

He's not only showing in local galleries here in the Bay Area, but across the world with an upcoming residency in Japan. He was also given the SFMoMA Minna Street Windows during their upcoming construction, and I have no doubt you will continue to see his work both locally and internationally in the future. I've been fortunate enough to be in contact with Felix, who is sharing his globe-trotting journey with me and Fecal Face readers. This will be an ongoing collaboration between he and I in which I will share the development of his work as he takes this awesome adventure.

Felix's work is not perfect. When I said this to him, he replied "Well, life isn't either." And wouldn't it be boring if it was? Obviously his line work is just about perfect, but the varnished washes and spray painted highlights cover the perfection in a way that draws you into the depths of his world. As soon as you see a recognizable figure or body part, it is veiled with a thick wash of polyurethane and the pull into the painting pushes you right back out of it, only enticing your view even more.

He often works in installations, creating encompassing environments which feel like being inside a graphic novel, frequently working with musicians to create shows that provide not only visual but aural stimulation to viewers. However, his works for the SFMoMA (several paintings stretching about 8 feet tall) are astounding visually and stand on their own, without the support of the installations or performances. When the demolition begins for the SFMoMA's expansion, these works will be displayed in their windows, reminding pedestrians that art and creation will continue when the detritus has been removed and the construction is completed.

Felix leaves for Japan in less than a week and will continue to update me with the work he will be doing there, including meditating with Buddhist monks, holding an exhibition at the end of his residency, and attending various Japanese cultural events. I will continue to update the site with drawings from his meditations as well as the work he creates during his residency to watch the development of it as he encounters these momentous experiences. Keep watching the site to see how it all develops.

Winter Group Show @The Shooting Gallery
    Tuesday, 22 January 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph


Bryan Schnelle,
Prepare to Die, Paper collage and enamel on canvas, 72"x72"
A week ago Saturday brought the opening of the Winter Group Show at Shooting Gallery. I got there very early, so a crowd was yet to form, but I hope some visitors braved the cold after a few drinks later in the evening. The artists showing are those that have helped with the continued development of the Shooting Gallery, including John Felix Arnold III, Ferris Plock, and APEX, all of whom have shown work recently in the Tenderloin. The intermingling of two-dimensional and sculptural works emphasized the variety of artists who show at the Shooting Gallery, which is a great way to finish their last show in this space. I can’t wait to see what they do with the larger space they are moving into very soon, continuing to foster creativity, but hopefully with much more room to do so.

John Felix Arnold III, Mixed media on wood panel

Christopher Burch & John Felix Arnold III
    Tuesday, 20 November 2012 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

A week ago Friday night, Book and Job Gallery in the Tenderloin branched out from their usual photography displays into some installations and mixed-media work by Christopher Burch and John Felix Arnold III in their new show Found in Darkness: Explorations in Personal Mythologies (through Dec 8th). The crowd was smaller than is usual for this gallery, but this was actually a benefit as it allowed more room to view much larger works. A small two-man band played later in the night, but I personally missed this part of the opening.

Downstairs displays both artists, with the right wall occupied by the detailed drawings of Chris Burch's Br'Er Rabbit figure falling down the existential rabbit hole. The subtle transitions from blue to black and white graphite provide a sensuous background for his figure who looks like a terrified or sneaky trickster. While not visually related, the opposite wall holds The Story of Shy, John Felix Arnold III's large mixed media on wood assemblage. This piece, and his other wood assemblage works, look like they were removed from old decrepit buildings. They are painted with what look like Japanese comic book drawings and phrases on top of layers of old graffiti and spray paint. The wood layers, spray paint, and drawings compound upon one another to provide a complex grounding for the drawings themselves. They seem to resemble fragments of a building that if only you could see the whole building, you could understand the whole mythology drawn and painted upon it.

A trip upstairs revealed two very large installations by each artist. To the right, you were shown In Memory of Shy by Arnold, another wall of wood assemblage, but this time, installed to look as if it was the actual wall of the gallery, covered over by smooth drywall finish at a sharp diagonal. The drawings on this piece span the division between wood and drywall and connect the two so that the division doesn't seem as sharp. A mat of grass extends from the wall, on which a skeleton-moped sculpture, called The Great Debate sits. The skull headlight is really beautiful and the cream coloration extends throughout the bike. It as if you can see a ghost riding through the desert on it; eerie, beautiful, and intriguing. The opposite wall holds an altar installation, a clear tribute to a lost friend. The walls are covered with decadent fabric and sitting in front of it are what look like black bottles, reminiscent of those used in Voodoo rituals. In the center of the wall is Portrait of a Trickster, a painting bringing back the Br'Er rabbit from downstairs and compounding the southern Creole mix of mythology of both Voodoo and folk stories.

Overall, the show was a successful break in the photo-heavy schedule of Book and Job. Since it didn't include as many artists, less friends were probably feeling like they needed to come to the actual opening. However, take the time to go and visit maybe even by yourself, so you can get into the work and reflect on its dark subject matter without the talking and laughing of other gallery visitors.

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

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.

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.
