Ryan De La Hoz @RVCA through 5/25
Wednesday, 22 May 2013 /// Written by Trippe
Ryan De La Hoz' show in the Upper Haight at RVCA runs through this Saturday... And the next time you're in the Mission, be sure to swing through his new shop on 14th St, Cool Try... We need to get over there soon and do a little photo feature for ya.
San Francisco based artist Ryan De La Hoz has expanded upon his ink and paper cut practice to include laser cut sculptures made with hand manipulated found imagery, textile works, and pieces made from custom fabricated puzzles that have been meticulously disassembled and rearranged to form dynamic compositions. This new media is presented along with his signature hand cut paper and ink works for the first time in his new solo exhibition What New Mystery Is This at RVCA SF. The exhibition presents a fractured alternate history where statues warp and pulsate alongside dizzying Op-Art. The exhibition is on view daily 11 - 7 through May 25th at RVCA | VASF 1485 Haight St San Francisco, CA 94117. Photos: Sami Naffziger.

Age? Location? Website? And who do you think you are?
26, San Francisco, www.ryandelahoz.com, I may never know.
Untitled, 11 x 14, Ink and paper, 2011
Describe your work a little bit.
I am inspired by what can happen to someone who breaks free from any form of oppression, physical or mental. I think that I make my best work when I am recollecting on a time where I may have felt lost or lonely and have since recovered. I play off feelings of former isolation.
Music heavy on your playlist these days?

When not creating work, you can be found.

How would you describe your work to a stranger who's never seen it?
I am terrible at this. I have only recently become comfortable referring to myself as an artist. Workin' on it!
Now I'm Lost, 10 x 10, ink on paper, 2011
Upcoming projects/ shows?
I am working with The Hundreds, Museums Press, StumbleUpon, Terroreyes.tv, and Little Paper Planes on different projects.

Ryan De La Hoz - Mini Interview
Thursday, 20 January 2011 /// Written by Trippe
Location? Age? Education? Website?
Literally equal time spent between Fairfield/SF/Oakland every week, 25, Working on a BA in Art History, www.ryandelahoz.com
How would you describe your work to someone?
I would say something like "Mostly it is personal reflection. I used to try to come up with ways to explain it with big words but lately I would rather hear what others think. I think a lot about loss, hope, isolation, freedom from oppression, the destruction of natural resources, myth, magic, the pursuit of happiness. Oh, I don't know" - I'm just testing the water of this crazy world and trying to do what I feel.
"Death of an Old Old Man","Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption", the ghosts that live in the upstairs rooms of my Grandmother's house, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, those people that are endlessly hopeful and positive (they usually love cats and or all animals)
Cheese burgers or tofu burgers?
Both, with basil and dijon mustard if I am lucky!

A Rare Look at the Tunnels Under San Francisco
Tuesday, 26 November 2013 11:15
We had no idea of all these tunnels throughout San Francisco
In the early '90s my friends and I used to tape flashlights to the handlebars of our bikes and go riding around in underground storm drain tunnels. There was a whole network of these tunnels under the city that sat empty for most of the year. We would go for miles snaking up and down the sides of the tubes, clapping and yelling to see how far our echoes would carry, eventually popping out in some other part of the city covered in cobwebs and bat guano. When the tubes got too small, we laid down on skateboards and kept going. If we found a flooded part, we taped garbage bags around our legs and crossed our fingers. -READ ON

11/20 Update: After 2 trips to the Apple store with them installing 2 new batteries and restoring the phone, it was determined there was "something" wrong with the phone and I had to buy a "new"/ same 4s phone since I wasn't eligible for an upgrade. In any case, be warned about that 7.0.4 update if you have a 4s. I'm sticking with 7.0.2 on this "new" phone.
Everyone has had or knows of someone who's had a an IPhone explode on them through one of their wonderful IOS updates. Well, add us to the list, because after updating to their recent 7.0.4 our IPhone 4s stopped charging even though the icon on the phone indicated it was charging... and after being on the charger all night, the battery drained to zero, and now the wonderful device won't boot up at all and is now a very expensive waste of space.
If you're considering updating your phone, do so with caution, and if you have any solutions for us, we'd sure to be happy to hear them. Got a hot date with the Apple staff tonight which we're sure will end with them telling us to buy a new phone... Wonderful.
Love these works by NYC's Michael Alan. His solo show The Energy Reader opens up at New York's Gasser Grunert Gallery on January 12th.

As a part of "project M" (curated by Strychinin Gallery), Melbourne Artist and part of the Everfresh collective RONE has painted the largest wall he has ever attempted, three massive images on the top three stories of a five-story building at Nollendorfplatz in Berlin. It took Rone five days to paint this excellent work.

Collage artist Lola Dupre opens a new show of work on Decemeber 5th at Portland's Breeze Block Gallery -- Opening on the same day in the adjoining gallery space, artists Ryan De La Hoz and Russell Leng.
|Joshua Meyers @Dolby Chadwick
With a thick, impasto finish, Meyer's paintings feel like treasures. As you get lost in the jagged confusion of thick swatches of color, figures emerge in the most subtle ways. The colors are enticing, but these figures are mesmerizing. I could get lost in these canvases for days. Simply, these are some really great paintings and I highly recommend you go see them before the show closes on December 7th.
|Faile's Mural for Spectrum Art Projects
TORONTO --- The finishing touches have been put on the large-scale, colorful and dynamic public art work by Canadian-born Patrick McNeil along with his art collaborator, Patrick Miller.

The John Berggruen gallery is beautiful. With floor-to-ceiling windows and a view to downtown, the Thursday night opening of NYC's Julian Lethbridge's new show Paintings was unmistakably a fancy affair. While these incredibly expensive paintings didn't do much for me, I was pleasantly surprised that I caught the Chuck Close show upstairs.
|"Car Poolers" by Alejandro Cartagena
Cartagena takes photographs in Monterrey, Mexico, documenting parts of everyday life there that he sees as depicting "a global issue from a local perspective." In a town that has a relatively new, booming construction market, Cartagena decided to document a side of the day laborers' lives that might not often be seen: the commute to and from work at various construction sites.

|Lucetta ~ Magnetic Bike Lights
Got an email from Emanuele Pizzolorusso, a Helsinki based industrial designer, yesterday to let us know about his latest project Lucetta: a smart set of two small magnetic bicycle lights. Never seen them in person. Have no idea if they're worth a hoot or not, but the concept is pretty interesting and simple. Looks like a great idea to us.
