Adam Parker Smith @Ever Gold
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Monday, 19 November 2012 10:42

A week ago Friday night, Ever Gold Gallery opened New York-based Adam Parker Smith's newest show Forever 21. The small space was packed with people, and I could very quickly see why; the work is really extraordinary. The only thing I wish was that there was more space to see more of his work, because it is impressive. But this is San Francisco, so space isn't exactly readily available, and Ever Gold balanced the available space perfectly by not overwhelming it with too many pieces. Furthermore, the intimacy of the space really added to the experience.

The gallery door opens to a small entrance space with a sculpture of a VW Bug inside a glass bottle as well as a fabric/painted piece reminiscent of Blinky Palermo's compositions. The VW Bug inside the bottle is painted to every detail, including a hole in the windshield with painted cracks extending from it. The car itself is a detailed sculpture, but placed within the bottle (somehow) it became an outrageously intriguing item. The draped fabric piece with its peachy hue was a great transition into the main gallery, where Smith shows his other sculptures. Unlike the Bug, these sculptures are direct references to gynecological genitalia, but become abject body parts rather than sexual references. These forms are made of foam, bound by rope and remove the fragment of the vagina from the rest of the body, creating a non-sexualized form. Instead of insinuating a sexual viewing of the work, these sculptures allowed pure formal interpretation. Then, placed on marble-like columns, which were bound by bungee cords and emphasized as not being actually marble, these genital forms were raised to classical standards of fine art. This was further connected to the draped front piece, which can either relate to classical dress or another sexual body part, without overt reference.

The rest of the show consists of other sculptures including the whimsical (Untitled) Kanye Shades which is a set of white window blinds cut into the shape of sunglasses. Shown on a white wall, the contrast between the piece and the wall is subtle, and the humor is muted, but insistently present. Also, the monochrome wall helped to balance its opposite wall which was hung with a "marriage proposal" made of sewn-together friendship bracelets. The texture and color of this piece are significant alone, but there is a complex meaning implicit in the fact that they are friendship bracelets and instead of symbolizing one relationship, it includes the connection of thousands.

Finally, the back room of the gallery is tiny, but provides the perfect space for what is displayed. The bodily innuendo of the show is continued with a floor sculpture of a watermelon with an inviting, glowing pink hole. The last corner holds what looks like an altar, with some really complex pieces inside of it. These works look like a poster hung on the outside of your bathroom window, to which you see through the steam after your shower by wiping away the condensation the glass. I am completely clueless as to how he achieved this look, but my god is it effective. Some works have writing and some are just cleared spaces to the poster, but no one could miss out on it; we've all wiped away steam from our mirrors, but more often, we do it to see ourselves, not celebrities who are usually displayed transparently.

Smith's work is so complex that much more could be said about it, but truthfully words don't do it justice – these pieces must be seen in person. I can't wait for the opportunity to see Smith's work in the large space of a museum, which I'm sure is just around the corner for him. For now, Ever Gold has done a great job in showing as much work as possible, and it must have been very difficult to narrow what works would be included in the show, because like me, I'm sure they just want to keep seeing more.

AJ Fosik @Guerrero Gallery

Blue Green Chimera by AJ Fosik


Daniel Albrigo in the Project Room

If you can only get to one art show in the next couple of weeks, get to AJ Fosik's Lamplighter to the Promised Land at Guerrero Gallery. This is seriously not one to be missed. Guerrero opened their huge space to Portland-based Fosik and his wooden totemic animal figures this last Friday, and many took the opportunity to find themselves some awe and amazement.

The wood sculptures are either free-standing or wall mounted, looking like either a taxidermy standing bear or a mounted elk's head, but the color really separates them from any natural characteristics. For the wall-mounted pieces, spray painted patterns can be seen on their bases before layer upon layer of the figure extends from them. I was especially drawn to Strange Regions in Search of Beauty, Awe or Terror from this year which compounds a human face, a human skull, and a bull's head, revealing the animalistic nature in us all. Each of us has days when we feel there is a bull inside struggling to break free, and this piece reminds us of our own power to do so. For me, this one was all about internal drives and desires, and the power in embracing and releasing them unto the world.

The small Project Gallery in the back also held works by Daniel Albrigo with smiley face paintings and a sculpture made of smiley beach balls. The paintings are light and fun and have titles like Don't Forget to Smile with hues of pink and light blue. I kind of feel bad for Albrigo because his work does deserve attention, but I just had to get back to Fosik's pieces. They are endlessly exciting and each detail is superb.

One of my favorite details of the work was the shingle-like scales he employed on his free-standing figures such as Exploder Installation. These scales are sharp-edged and painted colorfully, so why do I believe them to be realistic? It seems like that head is going to start snarling and it is going to leap off the pedestal at any minute. And the hands! The animalistic figure has human hands, and unlike the other figures which have them in distinct gestures, these are positioned more as if in prayer-pose. Maybe its meditation is what is keeping the beast back, so it is necessary to be left in peace.

Words cannot do these pieces justice, and neither do the pictures that follow. Please, go see this show. You will not be disappointed. No matter what age, gender or culture you are coming from, you will find something in this work that speaks to you. With about twenty large pieces, Fosik's work will stick in your brain, and I have absolutely no doubt that you will be seeing a lot more of him in the future.

Classic @Fabric 8
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Tuesday, 13 November 2012 10:03


Ursula Xanthe Young @Fabric 8
A week ago Saturday night, I snuck in early to see Classic, a new show at the Mission's Fabric8 with works by Brian Barneclo, Ursula Xanthe Young, and Romanowski, three artists who have been working with the gallery since they opened seven years ago. The space opens with a small shop, and after winding through a back room, you find yourself in a surprisingly open gallery space, which is divided into two main spaces. The first space held the work of Ursula Xanthe Young and Romanowski which emphasized the separation between their feminine and masculine aesthetics. Young's paintings employ a more traditional beauty with deep jewel tones, women, and city/landscapes and would be perfect for placement in any home. This was drastically contrasted to Romanowski's works which had a more militant propagandistic aesthetic. The paintings, which were created using spray paint and stencils on window panes, contained several 45 rpm adapters referencing Romanowski's other role as a DJ and as the gallerist said "man about town."

Romanowski's work carried into the second gallery, with Minister of Super Heavy Funk, a large piece dedicated to James Brown, but then moves into the work of local muralist, Brian Barneclo. These paintings have a little less precision and a little more antiquated quality to them, just like his work on murals throughout the city including one commissioned by the SF Bay Guardian at 135 Mississippi St. It must be a challenge to adapt his aesthetic to the much smaller space of a canvas, but he is able to use this space to bring the local flair of the street to the inside of a home or gallery.

If you're in the Mission, make a trip to Fabric8 to check out the work and the shop. If nothing else, the woman who was running it when I was there is incredibly nice and helpful. There is also a parklet out front, and if you enjoy Young's work, come back soon, as she will be its next designer. I look forward to seeing what these guys are going to do next.

Steve Fitch @Robert Koch
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Monday, 12 November 2012 14:01

Steve Fitch (b.1949) opened his newest show, Western Landmarks and Diesel & Dinosaurs at Robert Koch on Thursday night. The space of the gallery is quite large compared to the rest in the building, which allowed plenty of space for Fitch's large-scale photographs. Immediately, viewers were struck by the color in the large works shown in the front of the gallery, depicting neon signs from desolate roads throughout the US. Instead of cheap advertising, the signs are allowed to shine onto the buildings to which they are attached, creating a glowing presence in an otherwise dark terrain. Each work is named after the specific location which it depicts, allowing the titles to flow seamlessly with the works themselves.

The colorful works in the front of the gallery contrast to the black and white photographs in the back. These photographs are mostly figurative, showing the people who may inhabit the towns hidden by the night in the first pictures. They seem to be from a bygone era of American history including diners and circuses, when people actually had to travel to make connections, and they had to use diesel fuel to do so.

The large space allows for a good overview of Fitch's work. Viewers are allowed to see two different series, which relate to, but are distinct from one another. These works have an essentially American character, and their rural settings are a nice break from the heavily urban-influenced work coming from artists working within the city. I suggest taking a trip to Robert Koch to see the works, and allowing yourself the time to take in the quiet atmosphere of the gallery and the subtle historical quality of the work; you may forget you're in the middle of downtown, if even just for a minute.

Lisa Congdon @Rare Device
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Monday, 12 November 2012 13:41

Friday night brought This is My World, a show of Lisa Congdon's new work to Rare Device (600 Divisadero St). I had never been to Rare Device before, and it is an absolutely adorable little shop. While it may not be the best gallery space, as all of Congdon's work was forced onto the back wall with little to no viewing room, the atmosphere of the shop was the perfect context for the work, so it functioned well. And besides, her works are very small, so viewers would need to be close anyway.

The show has a juxtaposition of abstract, geometric paintings and objects with what look like vintage portraits with drawn patterns around the figures. These portraits were each displayed within a clear plastic bag that has been stitched closed with pink thread, signaling to me a sense of closure with the portraits themselves, but since the thread was left untied, they seemed to be able to be opened again if need be. Like the thread, pink was definitely the color of the show, and it showed up in almost every work shown, giving them all a decidedly feminine attitude.

The femininity of the night was further emphasized by the audience (which were almost all women), the gallery itself, and even the delicious cookies they decided to serve instead of hors d'oeuvres. As a woman, this was a really nice break from the hyper-masculine shows I've been going to and allowed a place for the women's artistic community to gather. Congdon was also at the opening, which allowed many visitors to come and talk to her. Even though she probably won't be there all open hours for the rest of the show, I would suggest getting to Rare Device before it closes on December 31st, but as quickly as the work was selling on Friday, you might want to get there sooner than later.

Sagerman & Rubenstein @Brian Gross
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Monday, 12 November 2012 10:28


Work by Meridel Rubenstein
Holy texture, Batman! Robert Sagerman's paintings, which premiered in his show Still Without Cessation at Brian Gross Gallery on Thursday are some of the most textural oil paintings I've ever seen. Van Gogh, eat your heart out. I had to do everything in my power to control my fingers from touching them. The bright and pastel colors of the work are mesmerizing and the shadows enabled by the texture provide a limitless color palette for viewing the works. The works use gradation, either in one direction or with a central focus, to guide the eyes with intended direction over their painted surface. Your eyes will dance with delight over these paintings and will not want to leave them.

The show was one of two opening that night, the second of which was Meridel Rubenstein's Heaven Turned on Its Side: Photosynthesis. She works in large scale photography, capturing moments within different stages of photosynthesis along with the equinoxes. All but one of them are photomontages with layered works, most of which depict natural atmospheric weather and trees. The photograph that does not seem to be digitally manipulated does seem to contrast with the fragmentation of the rest of the works, but because of its size, it works with the rest of the pieces in the show.

Not only the bright colors and textures of Sagerman's work drew audiences, but the fact that Rubenstein was only allotted a very small space in comparison put focus on him as the star of the show. I saw Sagerman at the opening and he was constantly busy talking to collectors and guests. The gallery was busy and many people were there, which speaks to the strength of the work. If you get a chance, please go see these works in person. The pictures below just can't do it justice.

Jim Gaylord @Gregory Lind
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Thursday, 08 November 2012 08:02

Brooklyn's Jim Gaylord opened his new show, Skipping Over Damaged Area at the Gregory Lind Gallery last Thursday. A small crowd was present, most of who seemed to be making the rounds in the building with all of the other openings happening at several other galleries. The show pairs complex, layered collages with geometric, abstract oil paintings, both of which share a choppy and fragmented aesthetic. The works are not confrontational, but rather provide forms that seem to flow in and out of one another, or in the case of the collages, on top of one another.

One woman exclaimed, "They're amazing!" while looking at the work and I have to say I was partial to the collages rather than the paintings. They provided more depth and complexity, although the paintings are not simple, they do seem somewhat flat. No matter, the work is very high quality, whether painted or on paper, and those that did make the show seemed to enjoy both mediums.

Rogelio Manzo @Jack Fischer
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Wednesday, 07 November 2012 10:13

I wandered into Jack Fischer Gallery last Thursday during the openings at 49 Geary to be pleasantly surprised by the figurative oil and image transfers of Sacramento based Rogelio Manzo's show Retratos Hablados. These paintings have an eerie quality as they seem like ghostly layered characters from the past. This layering also enhanced the texture of the work brought and additional depth not usually allowed by the resin panels on which they are composed.

The space of the gallery is incredibly efficient, and although it is very small, there were plenty of room for the works and for visitors trying to see them. The intimate setting helped to allow viewers to establish relationships with individual works, before they skirted off to any of the other number of galleries within the building. However, Manzo's work is very strong and deserves a time and space all its own.

Magenta Skateboards @Book-Job
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Thursday, 25 October 2012 13:18

Magenta Skateboards held an opening and video premier last Friday at the Book and Job Gallery for their new video, Hill Street Blues 2. I only had to walk down my stairs to make it to the show, but it was definitely worth a cross-city trek to attend. As soon as the gallery opened, it filled with viewers who eventually spilled out on the street. I was later unable to get to my front door, and I think that is a great sign of the success of the night.

Because of the large crowd, it was difficult to see all of the photographs, but that wasn't really the point of Friday night. The skateboarding community came out in full force to see what was happening here in San Francisco as well as internationally in places like France, where Magenta Skateboards is based. The video was shown strategically on the back wall at 8 so that the people in the street could watch while they finished smoking their cigarettes. No beer was served, which is unusual for Book and Job, but it was brown-bag friendly and most took advantage of that.

The photographs themselves range from the stylistic skate photos of Isaac McKay-Randozzi and Ben Gore, to the more abstracted and colorful mini photos by Evan Kinori on the stairs. Most, if not all, of the photographs were taken here in the city and helped to maintain cohesion between the artwork and the video. But, Friday night was really about the video. If you missed it, it's available online at magentaskateboards.com, but the photographs will be up through October 31st. Even if you did make it to the opening, I would suggest a second round to really spend some time with the pictures. It is worth it, and great inspiration for an afternoon skate session in the city.

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.

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

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.

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.

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
