Man (or Woman) Down
    Friday, 23 August 2013 /// Written by Trippe

It's with a heavy heart to announce that we had a floater this morning at FFDG. It looks like "Shark 1" or "Shark 2" (they look the same) has passed away.

We're not sure what did him (or her) in. All we know is that our two shark looking little fish had been hanging in the corner by the heater for the last couple weeks. But it's been warm in the gallery, so heat shouldn't have been a factor. The tank has been clean with plenty of tasty fish flake food for the eatin'... In the end, you know, it doesn't matter. He (or she) has moved on to the art gallery in the sky where small little fish have multiple cubic feet to swim about with plenty of plants to hide behind and plenty of fish flakes to eat, spit out, and eat again.

Only dead fish go with the current.

Our gallery lil' fish passed today. RIP, lil' buddy.

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.
