Ed Templeton Talk at OCMA

Wednesday, 18 August 2010 09:22
Written by Michael Hsiung

Last Thursday, we went down to Newport to catch Artist Ed Templeton’s talk with Juxtapoz magazine co-founders Greg Escalante and CR Stecyk III, moderated by Joseph Dugan at the Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA). Director Kevin Barnett aslo presented some footage from his upcoming documentary, Primer, featuring Ed Templeton. Following the panel, Ed signed some copies of his books Deformer andThe Cemetery of Reason while some of us dined at the taco truck. We would have caught the film at the beginning, but we were caught in some brutal traffic. Driving time 1:45 minutes. ~CHECK SOME PHOTOS

 

High 5s: Our Trip Up the Petaluma River

Tuesday, 17 August 2010 14:59
Written by Trippe

As anyone in San Francisco knows, this summer hasn't been normal with chilly fog/ mist/ drizzle and colder than average temperatures. It's been down right bummer-town actually...

In a last minute effort to escape the fog and get into some warmer temps, we took a last minute spur of the moment trip via sailboat up the Petaluma River to it's conclusion (Petaluma)... It got damn hot as we snaked up the narrow river. Got to raise our first draw bridge, ate oysters, drank in a bar with a shit load of dead animal heads and rifles on the wall... Almost got stuck in the mud when our motored died entering the insane chop and breeze leaving the river into San Pablo Bay. In total we spent 18 hours in 2 days traveling by boat and almost didn't make it home.

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.

Today's is from SFAI student Henry Gunderson who had his first solo show @FFDG last year with raging success. His work is constantly morphing as he explores interesting themes and subjects but always within his own unique voice. Everyday we're viewing works from a lot of younger artists who inspirations are fairly obvious. Refreshingly, Henry's perspective is very much his own. Delighted to have him in the incredible lineup.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

I think I was in 5th grade making lego art and flying my bicycle off jumps.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

My work is considered art now.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

I thought I would have a robo-girlfriend with a facebook ipad.

When you first heard of Fecal Face what did you think about it?

I think I first stumbled upon it when I was surfing the web and I saw a link to Fecal Face. I thought hey that sounds cool and I clicked on it.

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

John and Jessica put my work on Fecal Face, and I had my first solo show with Fecal Face. Fecal Face has been real good to me. Thanks Fecal Face!

Ian Francis - 10 yrs. of Fecal Face

Friday, 13 August 2010 11:29
Written by Trippe

We continue interviews with artists in Fecal Face's 10 Year Anniversary Show opening September 10th @The Luggage Store with an after party @Mezzanine following right after w/ bands and DJs... Ian Francis is a London based artist who shows at Lazarides Gallery with the now infamous Banksy. We've been following Ian's work for years and have always been a fan. It's an honor to have him included in our 10 Yr. show.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

In the year 2000 I was in university studying illustration. I was terrible at illustration - I basically just wanted to do my own work, had no interest in following a brief, and I struggle with deadlines that are shorter than a couple of months - but I had no idea at the time that there were galleries who would show the kind of work that I wanted to do. Luckily the course I was on had a pretty broad interpretation of what illustration was. I think actually for the most part I was either getting drunk or sitting around with my friends drinking coffee, procrastinating and having pretentious conversations about artwork without really doing much.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

Over the last 10 years my work has changed quite a bit, particularly in the way I actually make pieces. Back in university I was doing mixed media work with a lot more collage, messing around with photocopiers and gluing things on to boards. The first few years after I graduated I was scanning bits of drawings and paintings I'd done into the computer and layering things together in Photoshop. For the last four or five years I've switched to doing mixed media work straight on canvas, primarily painting in acrylic or oil. Although the process has changed quite a lot, I think I'd have been happy back then with where my work has ended up conceptually and stylistically. I think having worked in various different ways helps what I do now.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

I've got no idea, I always like idly speculating about The Future, but I can't remember what I thought back then.

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.

Is It Curtains For San Francisco's Art Scene?
Tuesday, 08 April 2014 09:35

We all know that San Francisco is going through aches and (growing?)/ shrinking artist pains these days as San Francisco property values sky rocket due to the tech infestation going on around the entire Bay Area. Maybe you work in tech and love it, but since this is an art website, we're interested to how this is affecting artists trying to make ends meet.

Some galleries have been forced to close due to 300% rent hikes. Many artists have fled to Oakland, LA and NYC in search of affordable housing and a more vibrant art scene... But we wanna know what you think of how it's going here in San Francisco. How are you making it work? What's your take on the art scene or lack there of? Do you think things are on the up and up or down and out here in San Francisco? Are artists a bunch of complainers and every thing looks great or is it curtains for San Francisco's artistic community? Thoughts

The Rena Bransten Gallery is packing up their 77 Geary space to make way for tech company MuleSoft

 

Nikki McClure at Needles & Pens, Friday 4/11
Wednesday, 09 April 2014 09:42

SAN FRANCISCO --- Nikki McClure, known for her painstakingly intricate and beautiful paper cuts, returns to Needles & Pens with an opening reception this Friday, April 11th - She'll be showing original papercuts for the book, "May the Stars Drip Down" - show details

This approach was born and bred out of the Olympia, Washington independent music scene. There, local artists emphasized everything handmade and self-published. The idea was to do a lot with a little. The result was a rich community sharing artistry and ideas. McClure found herself deeply embedded in this community which shaped an ethic of hands-on and accessible artmaking. - show 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.

Brian Barneclo's 225' Food Chain Mural

San Francisco based Brian Barneclo was commissioned in 2006 to paint a HUGE mural on the side of Foods Co on Shotwell at 14th Streets. After some time on its own, it got pretty taxed by misc graffiti and pigeon shit.


A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the citys shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesnt end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.
