Hi Fructose Fecal Face Interview

Wednesday, 15 September 2010 11:33
Written by Trippe

I promise we're going to talk about something other than our 10 Year show and us... but wanted to say thanks to Hi Fructose for the interview.

Ten years in the art game is no small feat.... For Fecal Face, the past decade has been one of a somewhat meteoric rise, from their modest beginnings as a part time hobby to their current status as a central hub of Bay Area arts as well as one of San Francisco’s more forward thinking galleries... continue

Tiffany Bozic - 10yrs of Fecal Face

Wednesday, 08 September 2010 11:19
Written by Trippe

We continue interviewing artists (view more) who are in FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred.

Man, what to say about Tiffany Bozic? I guess to start how nice to have a really close friend whose also a very very talented artist. Kind of merging work and personal life, but art is that way I guess... We've been fortunate to have met Tiffany when she first moved to SF from Ohio. It was a group show in like 2001 when we first saw her work. And no disrepect to the other artists in the show, but Tiffany's work shined above, and it's been wonderful watching her work mature over the years and to have her participate in the 10 year show is more than fitting.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

Around 2000 I began painting full time and exhibiting my work in SF. I had just dropped out of Art School and moved here the year before from Columbus, OH. I met FF founder John Trippe at a show that I helped organize with a number of local artists and quickly began showing my paintings in some of the group shows that John put together as well as a couple at Upper Playground.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

It has changed as much as I have! I think in the beginning, like a lot of artists just starting out, I was influenced by some of the artists that were showing on the west coast. There are too many to name, some of them became friends and were very supportive and helpful to me. In 2002 I moved back to Cleveland for a spell to reset my buttons and establish a cohesive collection of work that I made for a show at 111 Minna, SF. I think I am still working towards the same general theme, but my interest in detail and craftsmanship has increased. Now I look directly to my relationship to Nature and the people that I love to inspire me.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

To be honest I didn’t think I would make it past 30. I was just trying to scrape together the means to make it from one day to the next with no thought for the future. Now I hope I live to see my beautiful wrinkled hands at 80, with a large portfolio of paintings that I made with them to show my grandkids. I feel like it will take a lifetime to make a great painting, and I am still just scratching at the surface.

Artists coming and going today. Mike Giant dropping off his work.

G-Lewis Heslet of the The Creative Lives is working on short about the 10 Year show. If you see Gavin @the opening or after party and have something to say about Fecal Face or whatever, hit him up. His documentary will be a lot better with you in it than without.

Mr Jeremy Fish dropped off his incredible work. He went above and above.

 

Maya Hayuk - 10yrs of Fecal Face

Tuesday, 07 September 2010 11:18
Written by Trippe

We've been posting interviews with artists in the FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred.

NYC based Maya Hayuk has been a friend of Fecal Face for many years- so long in fact, that don't even remember when and how we met, we're just glad we did and that she was available to be included in the show. Maya shows her work across the globe and does many commissions featuring her mural work. For the 10 Yr. Show, Maya will have a site specific mural on the walls at The Luggage Store. She starts work on it today, actually. Excited as we've never seen her work on a mural in person.


What were you up to in the year 2000?

I lived with Kyle Ranson, John Dwyer, Molly Harvey & Gary Wertz (not all at once, but throughout that year) at Lake Sleepytown on Sanchez st. between 16th & market in a building infested with raccoons and the world's meanest slumlord and cheapest rent ever. I was painting, quietly, in the pantry of my kitchen not really sharing my work in public much/ at all. I was photographing lots and lots of bands & printing at In Color II. A bunch of my friends and I started a skate-surf-snowboarding website/ magazine called withitgirl, which I art-directed, so I was learning to stand on moving boards, and learning photoshop & html. I worked the door on Wednesdays at Minna, and I spent most of my time down in the warehouses on Illinois street.


How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

I hope it's gotten better. it's become harder and easier to make. I understand my direction more and it's gotten way larger in scale, but I still feel like I am at the very beginning of learning a lot, lot more.


What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

Futuristic & remote-controlled & everyone on segways.

Kelly Tunstall - 10yrs of Fecal Face

We've been posting interviews with artists participating in our FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred.

We've been featuring this SF based Kelly Tunstall work for years. We've been friends with Kelly for years as well. She's currently showing at Giant Robot in NYC and is a new mom with fellow artist Ferris Plock. Wonder if little Brixton will rebel against his artistic parents and go on to become an accountant... Somehow we doubt it. Would be so great to grow up immersed in visual art.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

Drinking, painting and going to school. Reverse order.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

Uh- I think essentially it's the same feeling, but my techniques have gotten richer and bigger.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

Never thought about it.

 

Part 2 of Life and Work on a Containership: The Last Leg of a Long Journey

Monday, 06 September 2010 11:12
Written by Marty Machado

by Martin Machado

Well the last time I wrote in to Fecalface I was approaching Dubai on the last of my three fifty-seven day trips from New York to Singapore and back. In typical shipping industry fashion, there was a drastic change of plans at the last minute. The head honcho’s at APL decided to start sending this fleet of ships through the dry-docks in Singapore and we were to be the first. So unfortunately I was not going to be home for the holidays as planned and my stay on board would now exceed six months. However, I was going to get to spend two full weeks in Singapore, after which our ship would start a Pacific run, hitting several new Asian ports and eventually sailing back under that beautiful Golden Gate into my home port of San Francisco.

Sylvia Ji - 10yrs of Fecal Face

Friday, 03 September 2010 15:30
Written by Trippe

We continue running short interviews with artists participating in FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred.

Hot off the heals of her NYC solo show a month back, Sylvia Ji lives and works in LA and is soon off to Melbourne, Australia to speak at Semi-Permanent Sept 17th. Before she heads across the globe she'll be at the opening of the Fecal Face 10 Year Show, and you get to see her incredible works in person. If you see her at the after party @Mezzanine, buy her a drink. She's an amazing person and gifted artist, and we're very pleased that she's participating in our show.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

I was just entering the Academy of Art in SF, totally green behind the ears and ready to start a new chapter.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

10 years ago, I didn't know much about color, composition, mediums, pretty much all of it except that I loved to draw. I'm still learning, but my work has definitely evolved to become tighter in both technique and concept.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

2010 seemed like so far away back then, and now here it is, a decade later. Technology of course was going to be faster and smaller, but who would have thought smart phones and social networking would be so prevalent.

 

High 5s: Hot Day on the Bay

Too damn nice out yesterday here in SF to not take the day off. Next week, with our 10 Yr. Anniversary, is going to be busy as hell... So we took a day off and jumped on the boat and into the Bay. Here's a little visual sampling.

 

Megan Whitmarsh - 10yrs of Fecal Face

Thursday, 02 September 2010 12:00

We continue running short interviews with artists participating in FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred

Los Angeles based artist Megan Whitmarsh grew up in the 70's and 80's, and, like many of her generation, uses the visual noise of her youth as inspiration, rather than the history of painting. She makes drawings, comics, hand-embroidered pieces and soft sculptures.

Her themes can best be visually described as scenes of fantasy characters existing amongst the detritus of the modern world. They can best be conceptually described as the artist's attempt to reconcile the ataxia of the modern world with an optimistic vision of the future dictated by an internal logic and supernatural iconography.

Whitmarsh sees her current artistic process as a slightly evolved continuation of her childhood practices of illustrating Buffy Ste Marie songs and making comic books about rabbits watching Mork and Mindy. -20x200.com

What were you up to in the year 2000?

My husband and I moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles stopping on the way in New Orleans (where we met) to play a last show with our band "The Hong Kong" in New Orleans on January 31, 1999.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

In some ways it has not changed in 30 years!-- I made a ceramic taco in 1979 and in 2006 I made one out of fabric. But in general I would say I have expanded the realm of how I make things and am somehow at the same time both less meticulous and more discerning. I make less stuff but it is more ambitious.

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

Jeremy Fish opens Hunting Trophies tonight, Saturday April 5th, at the Los Angeles based Mark Moore Gallery. The show features new work from Fish inside the "hunting lodge" where viewers climb inside the head of the hunter and explore the history of all the animals he's killed.


The Albatross and the Shipping Container

Beautiful piece entitled "The Albatross and the Shipping Container", Ink on Paper, Mounted to Panel, 47" Diameter, by San Francisco based Martin Machado now on display at FFDG. 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.
