Via Australia, EARS

Monday, 27 September 2010 14:08
Written by Scott Cooper

You may have heard of this Australian artist Dan O'Toole (Ears)... With 'Lo-Fi Collective' In a dusty attic above a bar in old Sydney town, Ears presents his new body of work. This exhibition space is only temporary. For 6 months Marty from Peer Group and 'go font yourself' is hosting free exhibitions for local artists and making damn good use of an empty space in a prime location. The room is huge and Ears takes over the space with a well planned attack of black backgrounds and paintings extended onto the walls. The room is buzzing with hip looking youngsters who wish they had a few extra dollars right now. -Scott Cooper

 

High 5s: Heaven on Angel Island

Monday, 27 September 2010 11:30
Written by Trippe

For our 2nd wedding anniversary we considered flying to Mexico for a few days and do one of those all inclusive cheap airfare & hotel combos where you just sit around a pool all day drinking margaritas. But then we thought we could do the same thing in our own backyard for like 90% cheaper. We took a small portion of our travel money, bought a used dinghy, and relaxed in the sun at Angel Island for 3 days... Extra bonus was the best weather we've had all summer here in San Francisco...

And after the Fecal Face 10 year show, we needed some rest. We swam, hiked, drank beer, BBQ'd, played catch, drank wine, and basically wallowed in the oppressive, yet fantastic, heat around goose, deer and baby raccoons.

 

Needles & Pens in Sweden

Friday, 24 September 2010 12:00
Written by Andrew Scott

Needles & Pens just got back from an epic three week stint in Sweden. We were there doing a show called HELLO SWEDEN at our sister gallery KRETS in Malmö. The show featured the likes of, Chris Duncan, Derek Mehaffey (Other), Paul Urich, Jay Howell, Orion Shepperd, Jovi Schnell, Kevin Earl Taylor, Kyle Ranson, Oliver Halsman Rosenberg, Maria Forde, Mat O’Brien, Michael Krueger, Monica Canilao, Nick Mann (Doodles), Pacolli, Rich Jacobs, Tim Kerr, Sara Thustra, Amy Browne, Hardland/Heartland, Matt Furie, Aiyana Udesen, Tara Lisa Foley, Andrew Schoultz, Hilary Pecis, Jay Nelson, and few others. It was an amazing time. Here's a little pictorial bloggings of the experience.

 

Sculptures by Jud Bergeron and Joe Sorren

Thursday, 23 September 2010 12:00
Written by Trippe

This November, sculptor Jud Bergeron and painter Joe Sorren will unveil eight new bronze sculptures, created in collaboration, by the two noted artists. The show entitled “Interruption” will be at California State University Fullerton’s Grand Central Art Center (GCAC), in Southern California, then will travel to Sorren’s hometown in Northern Arizona.

The exhibition opens at Grand Central Art Center on November 6, 2010 and runs through January 8, 2011, then will be presented by Flagstaff Cultural Partners at the Coconino Center for the Arts, Jan. 22 through Feb. 25, 2011.

We recently had a chance to do a quick interview with Jud Bergeron about the works presented in the show through email.

Blob creatures viewing geometric forms as if in awe of them. Can you explain how those came to be? Which one of you both was responsible for what in the works?

Joe came to my studio in NY 3 times and each time we would just make stuff, sometimes ceramic figures that we would pass back and forth until we liked them, sometimes wax figures that we would cast in bronze, just stuff. Joe would go back to AZ and we would talk everyday and send hundreds of phone pics and the work just sort of evolved. It became a call and response sort of thing, I would think of strange situations to put these figures in and then we would change the idea a hundred times until we hit on what felt right.

Feeling of helplessness or giving over to a higher and cleaner form Sitting back and taking it all in. These characters, how would you describe their milieu?

I would say that the 'higher power/helplessness' feeling you are sensing is probably a function of where we were in our personal lives at the time. When we started working my son (Fletcher) was around 6 months old and I was still coming to terms with being a new father. Also, the country was in shambles and the art market had just taken a nose dive so there was this feeling of 'oh shit! How am I going to support this family?' Joe had things going on in his life as well and we were not only creating art together but it seemed like we were counseling one another as well. I would describe these figures in the most basic sense, they are dealing with their environment. We really wanted these pieces to be truly sculptural in nature yet still maintain the narrative that is so prevalent in painting and in doing so what we ended up with were these environments or situations that these figures inhabited and the goal was to create beautiful pieces that left the viewer with questions and a smile.

 

MachoTaildrop LA Screening

Written by Michael Hsiung

Filmmaker, Director, and One Way or Another documentarian Corey Adams recently paid us a visit for his public and private screening of Machotaildrop, which premiered at the Downtown Independent Theater as a part of the LA Skate Film Festival. Last time we saw him he had accidentally mis-booked his flight and stayed for a week. We were really hoping he would do that again because Rachel really wanted to watch Excalibur with him again.

Urban Art Show TRANSFER - Brazil

Wednesday, 22 September 2010 14:34
Written by Tristan Rault

TRANSFER - is a huge large scale urban art show in São Paulo, Brazil running through Oct 17th... Our friend Tristan Rault was there and documented the setup of the show.

I have finally gotten some time to get my words around and try to explain how awesome this event I was invited to was. They told me I could snap some pics of the process and all around preparation of the show and so did I. This was more than a month ago now though.

Transfer was created by Lucas "Pexão" Ribeiro around 2007, in Porto Alegre, a midsize city in the south of Brazil where the dude's from. With the help of Ana Ferraz, his partner and curator's assistant of the exhibit, this first version went on to become a stepping stone in the oh-so-visited Brazilian underground scene. And I am sure what made such a difference is the element that later on became blatantly clear to me: a dead on serious art curation.

Johnny Ryan Interview

Tuesday, 21 September 2010 11:25
Written by Mildred

Johnny Ryan's utterly unpretentious taboo-tackling is an infectious and hilarious bombardment of political incorrectness, taking full advantage of the medium's absurdist potential for maximum laughs. In an age when the medium is growing up and aspiring to more mature and hoity-toity literary heights, Ryan builds on the visceral tradition that cartooning has had on our collective funny bone for over a century. Johnny was born in Boston, Massachusetts and grew up in shitty Plymouth, just a mile away from the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant. He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife.

"Generally speaking, [Johnny Ryan's] comics are really dumb & infantile, and prove beyond a doubt that chemical pollution, television, video games, pop music, etc. is making us all stupider by the minute..." – R. Crumb

Micheal Jackson on Jackson St.

Friday, 17 September 2010 14:43
Written by Akasha Rabut

A couple days after Micheal Jackson died I headed out to his hometown Gary, Indiana. I spent the day photographing his neighbors and strangers who all came out to pay their respects to the King of Pop. The summer day was humid and sunny. There was a lot of action on Jackson Street. Micheal Jackson's childhood home was decorated in MJ memorabilia, stuffed teddy bears, roses and trinkets. Although Micheal Jackson was dead it seemed as though Jackson street would always remain vivacious in his memory.

In the winter of 2010, exactly six months after his death, I took a trip back out to the Jackson family home. The weather was dreary and cold. His home was bare and a new addition of metal shutters had been applied to every single window. An iron gate had been erected around the property and not a soul was to be found. -Akasha Rabut


 

Mike Shine Saturday @941 Geary

Mike Shine is going bonkers and has created a complete circus over at the newish 941 Geary and his show, Flotsam's Wonder World, opens this Saturday. From what we've neard so far, this is not going to be one to miss. I believe that Mike has pulled out all the stops with an art "opera" complete with films, music, carnival tent, games, and over 200 mixed media pieces. Remember his show @FFDG or our studio visit?

SF Giants' World Series Trophy & DLX

I'm not sure how many people are lucky enough to have The San Francisco Giants 3 World Series trophies put on display at their work for the company's employees to enjoy during their lunch break, but that's what happened the other day at Deluxe. So great.

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.


Gator Skater +video

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?


Ferris Plock Online Show Now Online as of April 25th

5 new wonderful large-scale paintings on wood panel are available. visit: www.ffdg.net


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


Tyler Bewley ~ Recent Works

Some great work from San Francisco based Tyler Bewley.


Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery

While walking our way across San Francisco on Saturday we swung through the opening receptions for Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery in the Mission.

Stop in Saturday (1-6pm) to view the group show "Salt the Skies" now running through April 19th. 2277 Mission St. at 19th.


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.
