West, Wester, Westest Part 2 @FFDG
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 24 February 2011 15:04
FFDG's first show in our new space (248 Fillmore @Haight) opens on Friday, March 11th and is curated by Ryan Travis Christian featuring mainly Chicago based artists where he resides.

West, Wester, Westest Part 2
Group show curated by Ryan Travis Christian
Opening Friday, March 11, 2011 (6-9pm)
@FFDG, 248 Fillmore St @Haight

"In the second iteration of West, Wester, Westest, I've once again chosen a selection of emerging and mid-career artists that A) don't regularly exhibit in SF, if at all. and B) create work that "throws a wrench" so to speak, into what FFDG regularly shows. As a long time fan of Fecal Face, I'm honored to have such an immense platform to expose these artist to the world on. In terms of style and/or concept, these artists produce works that are very forward thinking and often experimental, throughout various mediums. The works exhibited, will run the gamut of content, from grossly disturbing to humorous, to bold and beautiful abstraction and then back again. Please join us @ FFDG's new location in the Lower-Haight (248 Fillmore @Haight) on March 11th for the opening reception of West, Wester, Westest Part 2, I will be in attendance." -Ryan Travis Christian

Artists: Carl Baratta, Timothy Bergstrom, Samantha Bittman, Ted Gahl, Rogelio Gamez, David Leggett, Shona Macdonald, Rachel Niffenegger, Paul Nudd, Marcie Oakes, Melissa Oresky, Tyson Reeder, Kate Ruggeri, Deb Sokolow, and Scott Wolniak.

Little Doors In/ Out of SF
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 24 February 2011 10:00
Got an email from Jeff who's working on a project of installing 20 lil' doors about San Francisco in "impossible locations" created by artists from around the country. --> I know I'd love to stumble across this door after a late night and ponder its existence.

Guess we should be on the look out for weee people who are very protective of what's ever behind their doors.

I just installed the first of about 20 doors created by artists from around the country and sent to me for installation around San Francisco. This first one was the first that I designed and made. Below is the proposition that was sent out as a call for the work.

"The idea is to install small doors, unexplained portals, throughout the city. To start, in San Francisco. These doors would be scaled down to a size that is cognitively possible but whimsically improbable. Maybe 15-25 inches or so. Pet door sized. I don’t imagine them to be operable, but the more detailed in appearance the better.

Maggie Haas Interview
Written by Suzanne Stroebe   
Wednesday, 23 February 2011 13:00
Artist Maggie Haas was born and raised in New Hampshire. She moved to San Francisco to attend graduate school at CCA, where she got her MFA in 2010. Maggie recently let me poke around her studio in the Mission, where we chatted about west coast utopian ideals, hardware stores, and quilting. -Interview by Suzanne Stroebe

SS: You play with old and new -- your sculpture and installation pieces are uber contemporary, referencing the likes of Cordy Ryman and Brion Nuda Rosch. Then you jump to a modernized version of fresco (with spackle) and guache and ink paintings, practices that are centuries old. Who are some of your artistic influences?

MH: I'm a huge fan of Northern Renaissance interiors... that moment when painters (and paint) got really good and a little secularized, an artists turned their eyes to world around them. And then, reaching forward in time and backward in sentiment, I've been returning to the work of the Pre-Rapahelites over and over, since I was a child. Their sense of color and omnivorous observation of the natural word led to some really hallucinatory looking work sometimes, and they also marked a period when craft, idiosyncratic handmade functional objects, was being considered and celebrated. I spend a lot of time looking at interior design and home-improvement books and blogs, sometimes gleefully but often with a lot of eye-rolling, too. And Minimalism is something I think about quite a lot, both as an ideal, and as something to be fought with and complicated.

SS: How did you come to sculpture? Color and paint are an important aspect of even your large sculptures and installation work; do you have a background in painting?

MH: There was a clear moment when I was an undergraduate when I realized how much the preparatory drawings for sculptures mattered to my work, the diagrams and blueprints, as it were. More recently blueprints and plans have come to be a real part of the content of my work, too, not just a drawing style. My work is concerned with the way we build things, especially the way amateur builders build, and so I spend a lot of time thinking about the color palettes of lumber yards (all those 2x4s stained red or blue at the end!) and hardware stores (safety colors, neon colors, the nice periwinkle of the chalk used to snap level lines, grays, purples and greens of different grades of drywall). It's exciting to approach those tools and materials with an eye to pleasure as well as practicality.

Gaia's Big Cock in Baltimore
Written by Manuel Bello   
Tuesday, 22 February 2011 11:48
More then once I have found myself running around New York City with this crazy kid calling himself Gaia. It is usually by the time documenting has taken the jump seat to the nights off handed antics. Never the less-> when Andrew hit me up with a solid photo batch of his latest street adventure down in his own neck of the woods I was more then eager to send them off to pasture.

This Big Cock is located on Howard St. in Baltimore. The image is a rooster messenger cradling the head of St. John as depicted by Guido Reni. My question to you Sir Gaia, "How can you depict such and image, knowing the Blackest Sabbath is coming for you?" Yeah, it is one of those had to be there moments. Regardless, have a look as Gaia is an incredible illustrator that just happens to play in the streets. -Manuel Bello

Ignacio Murua @Kokoro Studio SF
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 17 February 2011 16:00
Kokoro Studio (682 Geary St here in San Francisco) emailed a few images from thier current show with Chilean artist Ignacio Murua. The show Bomba 4 continues through Feb 24th.

Kokoro Studio has been open a little over a year showing local and international artists. Hours: Tue-Sat 1pm-7pm

Works by Chilean artist Ignacio Murua

Ignacio Murua lives and works in Santiago de Chile and Brooklyn, NY... He is inspired the Chilean yellow press newspapers that publish images of ideal female bodies as the "women of the week." What the popular culture esteems as perfection, Murua translates as uncomfortable and grotesque. By its denial of the familiar, flawed (normal) body, such perfection is encountered as a deformity. Murua uses a unique process of "painting without using paint" to contrast the disturbingly artificial perfection with smeared and dripping strokes. He works quickly to manipulate the wet pigment of a freshly printed photograph, causing the very substance of the image to be distorted, obscured, erased, or washed away. Remaining is a blurred silhouette, the suggestion of a posture that replaces individual identity. In a global society preoccupied with age and beauty, the work of Ignacio Murua disregards time, wiping out both perfection and its potential for decay.

Zine Island - Hamburger Eyes

The fellas over at Hamburger Eyes hooked up a new zine production process and have been cranking out zines like there was no tomorrow. So far by our count they have put out more that 25 new zines since Christmas time last year and they show no signs of slowing down. The best part is that your favorite local photographers are all making small run zines! Photographers like Michael Jang, Ray Potes, Ted Pushinsky, Dennis McGrath, Andrea Sonnenberg, Chris Beale, Uri Korn, Stefan Simikich, and many more. It’s actually kind of a bummer if you are into zines, because you know you have to buy each and every one. Thanks a lot guys.. like we didn’t have enough addictions already. -Jesse Pollock

FISH-WORK
Photographs by Corey Arnold
Opening: Friday, Feb 11th, 2011 (6-9pm)
@FFDG

Portland based photographer and fisherman himself (Corey's starred on the popular show Deadliest Catch), Corey Arnold, has been traveling the world documenting the world's fisherman since 2002. His show at Fecal Face Dot Gallery (opening Feb 11th, 2011) will feature a selection of photos featured in his new book, Fish-Work, Published by Nazraeli Press 2010 & available online here (Corey will be signing copies of his book from 6 to 7pm during the opening).

In 2009 PDN named Corey one of the top 30 emerging photographers. Corey Arnold is represented by Charles A. Hartman Fine Art in Portland, Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica and commercially by Redeye Represents in Los Angeles.

Fish-Work is the title of an ongoing life project documenting my journey as a commercial fisherman in Alaska and my travels abroad exploring fishing cultures around the world. Since 1995, I’ve worked seasonally as a crab, salmon, cod, and halibut fisherman in Alaska. But it wasn’t until 2002 that I picked up a camera and got serious about telling the story of this unique little world I’d stumbled upon.

I have a love-hate relationship with commercial fishing. The work is often grueling and mundane, sometimes dangerous and soul crushingly repetitive. But inversely, there is beauty and freedom in the act of manual labor, surrounded by a vast and remote sea wilderness. For a fisherman, the reward is often found in the amazing stories of triumph, disaster, and pride that are brought home to the civilized world. I’ve chosen to tell my story in photographs.

This selection has been culled from my most recent three month journey living amongst European fisherman in Spain, France, the Netherlands, Scotland, Greece, Germany, Poland, Norway and Ireland. They are accompanied by my images from seven years of work aboard the Bering Sea crab boat Rollo and my upcoming series Graveyard Point, the name of the seasonal salmon fishing community I’m a part of in Bristol Bay, Alaska. -Corey Arnold

Fish-Work: The Bering Sea
Photographs by Corey Arnold
Hardcover, 15 x 12 inches, 80 pages, 47 four-color plates
Published by Nazraeli Press 2010
For sale in the Fecal Face Online Shoppe (signed copies)

We're happy to preview our friend Corey Arnold's new book here on Fecal Face. Corey has been traveling the world documenting the world's fishermen through grants when he's not fishing himself in the depths of the Bearing Sea. He's starred on the show Deadliest Catch. His photos have been featured everywhere from Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, to the The Paris Review.

Corey Arnold opens his solo show Fish Work @Fecal Face Dot Gallery on February 11th here in San Francisco.

The photographs in “Fish-Work: The Bering Sea” capture moments from Arnold’s grueling retreats as a crew member aboard a fishing boat to the Bering Sea. With scenes of boat life so vivid that some shots can induce fear or seasickness, the artist’s perspective also reveals the tender soulfulness of a fisherman’s extended life at sea. His skillful compositions depict the simultaneous bravery, toil, humor and gumption that “fish-work” demands. Yet the series also illuminates the aesthetic sublimity that can only be experienced, ultimately, by those willing to risk their lives where the sea breaks its back. Having survived several seasons afloat these icy and unforgiving waters, we are lucky that Arnold has taken time to document his artistic impressions of this rare lifestyle and extended us a vicarious glimpse.

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.

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.

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.
