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. A small selection of canvas paintings will be surrounded by 30 smaller 8" x 10" black and white chipboard paintings and a selection of rarely produced handcrafted wooden sculptures.

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.

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.

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.

Yumiko Kayukawa & Aaron Nagel @Shooting Gallery
    Tuesday, 25 June 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

SAN FRANCISCO --- The Shooting Gallery opened both Madness by Yumiko Kayukawa (Seattle) and Bastion by Aaron Nagel (Oakland) on June 8th with Kayukawa in the main gallery and Nagel in the project space.

Kayukawa's work is very interesting, combining a deliberate flatness with immense detail, all perfectly constructed on their canvas supports. She was also there during the opening, approaching visitors and initiating conversations with them, and was a very refreshing and inviting presence. However, I was more attracted to the paintings of Aaron Nagel. They are not only beautiful, realistic portraits but with the inclusion of several small blue dots, the compositions become more complicated and move from basic nudes to a more personal vision of both spirituality and sensuality. These are not the fashion models seen in the front of White Walls, these are real women, and their depiction is executed perfectly, and the blue dots add a distinctive touch.

Greg Gossel & David Marc Grant @White Walls
    Thursday, 20 June 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

SAN FRANCISCO --- I was fortunate to beat the crowds to the openings of Greg Gossel's (Minneapolis, MN) Head Over Heels and David Marc Grant's (SF) My Magic Will Bring them Back last Saturday night at White Walls, allowing me to actually see and get photos of the work during the opening.

Like most of the other visitors, it was a quick trip through Head Over Heels, as the pieces all look almost exactly the same, and felt like contrived graffiti in the pristine space. However, entering My Magic Will Bring Them Back, visitors entered an environment, and spent more time with the work. Each piece contains immense detail and the installation helped to tie it all together and created a fun world for visitors to interact with it. Grant was also there talking with visitors, enhancing the inviting atmosphere of the small project space and the crowd seemed to respond by gathering in the small room, even though it was a tight squeeze. The show definitely deserves a visit, and I hope next month, there will be something other than Gossel's hot chicks in the main gallery of the space.

Ian Kimmerly @Dolby Chadwick
    Wednesday, 19 June 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

SAN FRANCISCO --- Local painter Ian Kimmerly opened his newest show Continuous Wave at Dolby Chadwick on Thursday night, and these are some of the best paintings I've seen in a while.

The blurry crowds which occupy the deepest space within the painting look like they were printed, rather than painted, onto the canvas, but upon closer inspection, I found that the entire work was paint. Through abstract figures and brushstrokes, accompanied by very precise swatches of color, his work allows viewers to comprehend its construction while also losing themselves within it. It took everything in me not to touch the paintings, as texture of them is unbearably alluring, but I was very satisfied with just looking as well. Although you'll probably miss the sophisticated crowd who was present at the opening, this show is definitely worth a visit before it closes on July 6th.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
