Joshua Meyers @Dolby Chadwick
    Monday, 18 November 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

Joshua Meyer
Rustle, Sparkle, Flutter, Float
@Dolby Chadwick
November 6 - December 7, 2013
SAN FRANCISCO --- The Dolby Chadwick Gallery has the painting game on lock. With Joshua Meyer's (b.'74 Cambridge, MA) new show, Rustle, Sparkle, Flutter, Float, the gallery has opened yet another show of really nice paintings.

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.

Wingspan, 2013, Oil on canvas, 46 x 120 inches

Once I Was, 2009, Oil on canvas, 30 x 30 inches

Joshua Meyer was born in 1974 in Lubbock, TX. He currently lives and works in Cambridge, MA. He earned his BA from Yale University in 1996 and has since exhibited across the United States, Asia and Europe. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including a prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2008 and a grant from the San Francisco-based Sustainable Arts Foundation in 2011. This will be Meyer’s third solo exhibition at the Dolby Chadwick Gallery. A catalog will be published on the occasion of the show and available through the Gallery.

Jeff Depner at NYC's Nancy Margolis
    Friday, 15 November 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Vancouver based painter Jeff Depner ('12 interview) is currently showing new paintings in VARIATIONS BLACK NAPKINS at NYC's Nancy Margolis Gallery through Dec 7th. -PHOTOS

The work ebbs and flows between graphic qualities and thick painterly styles with muted but contemporary feeling colors. The constant process of ‘improvised moves' allows some of the work to be based in grid like structures. It allows some of the smaller paintings a chance for inquiry in constructive qualities and aspects of painting, inserting his work into the long history of painting. -our '12 interview

In his abstract acrylic paintings, Vancouver-based Depner explores compositional structure through the relationship between colors. His works’ painted layers create singular, functioning systems of interacting parts, yet juxtapositions permeate—between the architectonic and the organic, the graphic and the painterly, the matte and the opulent.

Tiffany Bozic Interview
    Tuesday, 12 November 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Tiffany Bozic's solo show Sense of Wonder is in its final week at San Francisco's FFDG. Before this wonderful show comes to a close, we wanted to ask Bozic about her methodology, lifestyle, influences and generally what makes her tick.

Felidae - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 18" x 24" - pricing & availability: info(at)ffdg.net

You normally work in a much larger scale. Why did you choose the smaller size for the works?

I decided to make these small paintings for two main reasons. The first reason was to explore things I've always wanted to try but never quite fit into the larger paintings. The second reason was to just sit down and make a painting every 2-3 days of whatever I was interested in at the time. It felt very fun and liberating.

Goldfish & Tadpoles - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 8" x 8"

Calligraphy - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 20" x 14"

Obviously your work reflects a skewed and creative reflection of the natural world. How do you come up with your creatures and pairings?

I don't really know where the ideas come from. I've always had an immense appetite for exploring and discovering new things to paint. I really try to go back to being a kid with no inhibitions, to be self unaware and happily captivated by whatever I'm doodling.

When I was younger I spent a lot of time alone outdoors constantly turning stones to discover something cool to draw. Later I would bring that critter back to my studio and make a drawing of it. I suppose I am still doing that. I'm still that little kid at the kitchen table with a pad of paper letting the pencil carry me away into another world.

Strigiformes - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 12" x 16"

Chiroptera - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 6" x 6"

You recently moved up to Marin with your family. How has the transition been from city to a more relaxed surrounding?

I've always wanted to be able to complain about the deer eating every plant I put in the ground, and now I can finally do that!

We moved into a cottage under the redwood trees at the foot of Mt. Tamalpais. From outside our door there are 5 miles of open space until it drops into the ocean. I feel like I am already becoming part of the land and I enjoy all the diverse organisms living around my house. I notice the grand change of seasons and the tiny changes that silently move along like the banana slugs that I pick up and move off the trail when I go for hikes. For the first time in my life I feel humbled and grateful to have finally found my home.

Michael Page at The Shooting Gallery
    Friday, 18 October 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

SAN FRANCISCO --- I love the paintings in Michael Page's (SF) show The Places We'll Go currently at the Shooting Gallery. They're soaked. They drip with color and seem to be saturated in a varnish that covers the surface fluidly, but the listed materials of them don't seem to indicate this covering layer. Emphasizing the playfulness indicated by the title of the show, these paintings could literally occupy your vision for hours, with your eyes racing back and forth across them. The crowd at the opening seemed to agree as remarks of delight and smiles spread across the room. The photographs do not do this work justice, and if you are in the city, they are absolutely worth a trip to see in person; just go.

The project space gallery won't dissapoint either. Currently housing Oakland-based artist Lauren Napolitano's A Well-Marked Path, the space feels like a step back in time and in the direction of the southwest. Combining paintings on found objects with delicate drawings on photographs and other found materials, this work brings a sense of a personal intimate relation with these objects. The sense of wonder fostered by Page's show in the main gallery was continued in this space, which drew viewers into its small niches with small, beautiful, and nostalgic elements. Simply, these shows are not to be missed.

Sense of Wonder
Tiffany Bozic, solo show
Opening: Fri, Oct 18th (6-9pm)

preview inquires, email: info(at)ffdg.net

--
Fresh off her second Semi-Permanent talk in Stockholm and recent book release, Bay Area naturalist painter Tiffany Bozic opens her second solo show with FFDG (www.ffdg.net) entitled "Sense of Wonder" featuring 50 recent small and large paintings on wood continuing her motif of tightly rendered paintings detailing surreal metaphorical themes. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, Oct 18th (6-9pm). Refreshments will be available and the artist present.

Tiffany Bozic has spent the majority of her life living with and observing the intricacies of nature. Her work has the traditional air of tightly rendered nature illustrations but with a highly emotional range of surreal metaphorical themes. In her paintings and sketches she presents her vision of life’s struggles and triumphs that are largely autobiographical. Her wide array of subjects are inspired both from her extensive travels to wild places, and the research specimens at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, CA. Over the years, Bozic has developed a complex process of masking and staining so the natural grain can collaborate with each composition using multiple layers of watered down acrylic paint on maple panels of wood.

Bozic has had several solo exhibitions featuring her large-scale paintings and installations. Her work has also been included in numerous group shows across the country, and spoken at international events. She was also the first ‘Artist in Residency’ whereby she collaborated with the California Academy of Sciences, to create the “From the Depths” exhibit on the public floor of the museum, November 2007. Her first book “Drawn by Nature” was published by Gingko Press during the summer of 2012. Bozic is a self-taught artist currently living and working in her cottage under the redwood trees in Marin, CA.

RIP Matt Doust
    Thursday, 29 August 2013 /// Written by Trippe

We're sorry to hear that 29 year old Australian/ American artist Matt Doust has died from after an epileptic seizure last night. His next show at LA's Thinkspace Gallery opens next week on September 7th. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Perth artist Matt Doust, an Archibald Prize-finalist, has reportedly died at the age of 29. Doust, best known for his large-close-up portrait of actress-model Gemma Ward, died after an epileptic seizure, according to the Los Angeles art gallery where he was due to open a new exhibition next month. Doust had become a favourite of celebrity collectors, with Hollywood stars Jim Carrey and Mickey Rourke among those who have purchased his large, hyper-realistic youthful close-ups and semi-nude paintings. -continue reading

Press Release (+Click to expand)

FFDG is pleased to present San Francisco based painters and husband and wife duo Ferris Plock and Kelly Tunstall in their second two person show with the gallery entitled “Loading” featuring new mixed media paintings inspired by the transfer of information as recontextualized through the artists unique and personal filter. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, August 16th (7-10pm). Beer and wine will be available.

With minds fine-tuned to the perception of millisecond delays, seconds feel like infinities; a slow network is a robbery of our precious messages, instant pictures, the tenuous threads that connect us, that when severed, make us ever so nervous, scared, if not very very angry. These moments between are indeed a disquieting reality check. To be inaccessible or to be kept waiting is almost to die.

In this instant culture, we look at who is selling, who is buying, and what a search actually is: a reach of a skeleton, waiting to be fleshed in with missing lyrics, skin, muscles, bones. At the end of it all are our ever-hungry hands and eyes, starving for the result of a search sequence, the next delivery to add to our lives, the next bit of like for the status update of one of too many personae; we are always searching and forever loading.

“Loading” is Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock’s wry take on the recent Bay Area tech explosion; a follow up to 2012’s FFDG “Edible Complex” exhibition; a study of San Francisco’s food culture.

About Ferris Plock & Kelly Tunstall

The experimental yet classically grounded work of Ferris Plock and Kelly Tunstall lives comfortably in a space between graphic expression, stylized representation, surrealism, and sketch. Their preferred medium is a combination of acrylic, collage, spray paint, pencil, pen and ink, gold leaf. The binary contrast of masculine and feminine as the major theme in their work is also a very real and personal visual conversation between their imagined realities. Enhanced by complex, delicate layers, their bold pieces exist not only as individual pieces, but as part of larger installations or site-specific works.

Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock live and paint in San Francisco with their two sons. They have exhibited extensively locally, nationally, and internationally both together and separately. Plock and Tunstall recently completed a landmark commission for San Francisco’s Michelin-starred restaurant, SPQR. Tunstall also completed a major body of work to be on view permanently at Oakland’s A16. Tunstall and Plock have worked or are currently working with the San Francisco Arts Commission on their Passport initiative.

This morning we take a closer look at this beautiful painting by San Francisco based Michelle Fleck now showing at FFDG.

Arrangement measures 24"x30", acrylic and aerosol on panel - inquires: info(at)ffdg.net

Michelle Fleck is a painter living in San Francisco. Her work focuses on the relationship between man and the landscape, and the marks we leave on it. Influenced by everyday life in the city, her paintings serve as snapshots of an ongoing intersection of the natural and man-made world. She strives to make work that has a sense of relevancy in a culture driven by a need for change and newness.

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.

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.

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

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.
