We're going to featuring some mini interviews with artists participating in the group show 11.11.11 opening up at FFDG's temporary gallery space at 248 Clement St @4th Ave in the Inner Richmond on Friday, Nov 11th (6-9pm).

Also opening that same night at FFDG is the solo show, Everything Under the Sun, with San Francisco based Mario Martinez (Mars-1).


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?

Real Estate, Women, cLOUDDEAD

Favorite mediums to work within?

Cut paper and ink

Dream job other than artist?

Professional skateboarder


Now I'm Lost no. 2, 10 x 10, ink on paper, 2011

When not creating work, you can be found.

Walking around with an Ipad at the Oakland Museum of CA

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.

What gives you the right?

The benevolent creator of us all or the Big Bang take your pick

Last words?

Also opening that same night at FFDG is the solo show, Everything Under the Sun, with San Francisco based Mario Martinez (Mars-1).


Age? Location? Website? And who do you think you are?

Still 20, Melbourne, Australia. flickr.com/bottomlesspoose. hamishi.com is incoming, I just need Kim to hurry up. I guess I'm an amalgamation of everything that's happened to me, y'know? I'm just a guy who makes stuff is all.

Describe your work a little bit.

Sure! but it's tough, to be general I try to catch the glistening balance of mapping something outside of me that is naive and omnipotent using an illustrative painterly style and maintaining hyper honesty while expressing what you wont know. Does that make me sound like a jerk? Okay little people quietly placed softly affecting each other. Who am I?

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

I've been listening to a lot of local pop stuff like Aleks and the Ramps, Milk Teddy, the Townhouses, Oscar + Martin, Megastick Fanfare, it's nice to be able to go see your favourite bands every few weeks for a couple of bucks. Then some Javelin, John Maus, Trouble Books, Cannibal Ox, KMD, Das Racist, Dan Deacon, King Khan and BBQ. I like listening to new music when I'm painting though, stops me from getting distracted. I also put on podcasts so I don't get lonely in the studio.

Favorite mediums to work within?

Gouache

Dream job other than artist?

Maybe yours? I'd really like to help all the people I believe work hard and make the stuff I love get validation and recognition. I wanted to become a fire engine, I've kind've outgrown that.

Age? Location? Website? And who do you think you are?

25. From Vancouver, Canada but currently living in Edinburgh Scotland. Artist.

Describe your work a little bit.

I use hard-edge geometric shapes and loose marks to articulate the relationship between natural and man-made structures. The result is an extraction or sample from the conglomeration of these opposite forms of environment.

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

No Gold, Brasstronaut, and Radiozero podcasts for the old home. Belle and Sebastian for the new home.

Favorite mediums to work within?

My paintings are mostly acrylic and spray paint, but recently I have been using wood and glass to experiment with sculpture and installation.

Dream job other than artist?

Island caretaker

When not creating work, you can be found doing...

Hanging out with my wife and exploring my new city.

How would you describe your work to a stranger who's never seen it?

A collision of gradients, geometric shapes, and lines that come together to create a new (usually floating) entity.

Vince #1, original photo by Michelle Tran

Describe your work a little bit.

I'm a collage artist and for the last few years i have really stuck to this medium. I rarely combine images together, instead i generally work from multiple prints of the same image to produce work. So the source image is still very visible, just warped and bent out of shape. Perspective and composition can change quite drastically while still retaining the original content.

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

Dutch Techno and Ethiopian groove. And i'm always head banging wildly to the tunes of my old studio pal the NIALLIST.

Fear, from the Feelings series, collaborative project with Dan Monick

Favorite mediums to work within?

Collage forever!

Sculptures by Don Porcella
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 20 October 2011 08:24

A few images from NYC based (via Bay Area) based artist Don Porcella whose woven pipe cleaner sculptures are showing at the non-profit space Art Connects New York through Oct 28th.

Don Porcella is an artist living and working in New York City who utilizes humble materials in innovative ways to craft a unique and humorous commentary on the human condition.

Born and raised in Modesto, California, Don Porcella’s artwork has been exhibited at galleries in New York City, Berlin, Paris, Copenhagen, East Hampton, Washington D.C., Miami and San Francisco. Porcella’s art has been reviewed in the New York Times, NY ARTS, Fiber Arts Magazine, Chelsea Now, San Francisco Magazine and the Village Voice to name a few. He has a BA in Psychology from the University of California at San Diego, a BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts and an MFA from Hunter College in New York. His art is included in some of the world’s best art collections.

Drawing from his own imagery of the suburban and his interest in folk art, cartoons, and science fiction, Porcella's work allows the subjective and strange to penetrate humorous representations of a wildly imaginative reality.

 
Unpiano Releases Arthur Pollock Friday
Written by Trippe   
Monday, 17 October 2011 14:07

Unpiano releases a new book featuring a collection of photos by long time Boston Herald news photographer, Arthur Pollock, at SF Camera Work (657 Mission St) here in SF with a show featuring photos from the book this Friday Oct 21 (5–9pm)

Arthur Pollock happens to be the father of Jesse Pollock, a long time contributor to Fecal Face and also the owner of Unpiano Books. Jesse gave us a copy of the book last week which runs 184 pages spanning Arthur's 50 year career as a photo-journalist.

Printed on high quality paper, this beautifully bound book is relaxing to flip through- capturing many moods of human beings living on planet earth and more precisely living in or around Boston. Cops busting hippie thugs. Musicians jammin out in a spirited haze. People relaxing on the beach during a heat wave. Youngsters getting their protest on. There is no one theme to the book, expect possibly that humans do many different things while living in and around Boston. It's an enjoyable book to flip through. Every page offers another unique unexpected turn as seen through the eye of a hard working talented news photographer. [soon available on Upiano's site for $30]

Too Big to Fail
Written by Trippe   
Monday, 17 October 2011 10:09

NY based Illustrator Anthony Freda emailed over his latest "Too Big to Fail" which seems quite fitting in these wonderful economic times.

According to this theory, certain financial institutions are so large and so interconnected that their failure will be disastrous to an economy. Proponents of this theory believe that these institutions should become recipients of beneficial financial and economic policies from governments or central banks to keep them alive. It is thought that companies that fall into this category take positions that are high-risk, as they are able to leverage these risks based on the policy preference they receive. The term has emerged as prominent in public discourse since the 2007–2010 global financial crisis.

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.

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb.

I attached a cradle with a spray paint can and other hardware to the drone. I created a series of paintings that are larger, about maybe 3 feet by 3 feet all the way up to 25 feet by 15 feet … And basically, I achieved the perfect air pressure, the perfect weight of the paint and the perfect materials so that the drone didn’t freak out when I attached these mechanisms to it, Katsu said. --continue reading

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

The Rena Bransten Gallery is packing up their 77 Geary space to make way for tech company MuleSoft

 

Nikki McClure at Needles & Pens, Friday 4/11

SAN FRANCISCO --- Nikki McClure, known for her painstakingly intricate and beautiful paper cuts, returns to Needles & Pens with an opening reception this Friday, April 11th - She'll be showing original papercuts for the book, "May the Stars Drip Down" - show details

This approach was born and bred out of the Olympia, Washington independent music scene. There, local artists emphasized everything handmade and self-published. The idea was to do a lot with a little. The result was a rich community sharing artistry and ideas. McClure found herself deeply embedded in this community which shaped an ethic of hands-on and accessible artmaking. - show details

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.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


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

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.

San Francisco based Brian Barneclo was commissioned in 2006 to paint a HUGE mural on the side of Foods Co on Shotwell at 14th Streets. After some time on its own, it got pretty taxed by misc graffiti and pigeon shit.


A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the citys shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesnt end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.


John Felix Arnold @BRIC House, Brooklyn

In the year or so that I've known Felix, almost every one of his shows has had a live musical element and it seems perfect that he would be included in a show called Art Into Music. He commandeered the corner of the gallery to create an installation that houses not only his drawing, but also an entire drum kit, amps and a dude playing a guitar. The warm wood paneling stands out in contrast to the matte grey boom-box tower and the muted wall of album covers and looks like a beacon calling to the crowd saying "this is what you shoud be looking at." However, it's not in a "look at me" attention-starved desperation, more like a welcoming invitation into his world.
