Best and Worst
Written by Noah Hanson   
Tuesday, 11 April 2006 06:44
Over the last 6 months or so I've been making it out to Seattle's "First Thursday" on an almost regular basis. I present to you my photo collection of some of the event's best and worst featured works.

Over the last 6 months or so I've been making it out to Seattle's "First Thursday" on an almost regular basis. Most of the monthly event takes place down at the Pioneer Square area, but a lot goes on over at the South Washington and South 3rd Ave block too. For a detailed map of where to go, check out this link.

As all of you know though, art shows are usually a hit or miss. For this blog entry, I present to you my photo collection of some of the event's best and worst featured works.

For starters, I'd like of show one of this years favorites. The piece was made by Allan Packer, and is called "The Bride."

life-size-model.jpg

life-size-model-tiara.jpg

It's all life sized and very detailed, but right now I don't have any information as to where or how he made the cast. It's been up over at the Davidson Contemporary gallery for the last few months or so, and I think was just replaced with some new stuff by Allen. You and I should head out there soon to check it out for sure.

life-size-model-T-and-A.jpg

life-size-model-bride.jpg

Here's my example of some of the ugly crap they show at First Thursday... I don't know who the artist is, but I do know that he's a total douche bag. I was walking around all of his stuff on all of their little pedestals, when I spotted this piece of nasty.

ugly-art.jpg

I knew that I wanted to make a post on here made of some examples of what gets passed off as art here in Seattle, and decided that this one should be a highlight. The surly old fart who made it must have read my mind cuz when he saw me take the picture he bitched me out of his gallery space. He proceded to harrass me, telling me that it was his art and that he holds all rights to it, and that I was not allowed to take any pictures without his consent.

hair-balls.jpg

Another example of bad art... I don't know who made this either, but for some reason they thought it would be interesting to glue a bunch of colored balls of hair to a wall. I'm fairly sure this was up over at the Platform gallery, but sometimes I confuse it with the Soil gallery. Either way, I wasn't into it.

hair-close.jpg

Here's some cool stuff by Bill Finger, of Rochester, NY. His stuff was up over at the Platform gallery for a while in a show called "Dark States" this last Dec. For this installation he made 30" x 40" color photographs, in editions of 5, depicting some of his childhood memories. He recreates the memories on a minature scale and then photographs them. I thought they turned out pretty neat.

bill-finger-2.jpg

Up above, "1972-age 11."

Down below, "1969-age 8."

bill-finger-1.jpg

There's usually some pretty interesting stuff over at the Garde Rail gallery too. They focus a lot of their efforts on bringing in folk art primarily, but always have a wide range of styles to show off. These ones were done by Tom D. & Melissa D, who from what I can tell, focus a lot on southern imagery. That's BB King holding the guitar.

folk-art-tom-and-melissa.jpg

There's also been some interesting stuff by Bill Miller over at the Garde Rail, and his technique is to use discarded vintage linoleum and vinyl flooring to make his collages.

linoleum-bill-miller.jpg

The one above is a self portrait, not Mr. T.

linoleum-dood.jpg

linoleum-kids.jpg

linoleum-nipple.jpg

Down below is the stuff of Gregory Blackstock. Each and every time I go check out the new stuff over the Garde Rail, I get into a lengthy conversation with someone about his artwork. Greg lives quite the life. He's an elderly man who lives with autism and has been creating his drawings since 1986. He is also a well accomplished musician and can be seen playing his accordion outside the Key Arena for Sonics and Thunderbirds games, and also outside the Opera House.

gregory-blackstock-drums.jpg

As far as I can tell, most of his drawings all follow the same formula. Gregory picks a subject and then draws as many different depictions of it as he can. When he wants to draw a light house, he'll become so involved that that the finished product is really 12 different styles of lighthouses.

gregory-blackstock-light-ho.jpg

This goes on with all of his drawings. I've seen ones of drums, masks, trains, alarms, carnivorous plants, and the list goes on.

gregory-blackstock-roofs.jpg

The photos down below were donw by Jesse Burke. I don't know much about them really, just that they are gross, and that most of the time I like gross.

Jesse-Burke-belly.jpg

jesse-burke-deer.jpg

I'm including this picture I took of a deer sticker just because it was right outside of the gallery where Jesses' stuff was, and I found it to be kind of ironic.

deer-sticker.jpg

Moving on, I have no idea who made these...

peeps-talk.jpg

peeps-talk2.jpg

Michelle thinks that they were done by William Powhida, and although they sorta seem like somthing he'd do, I can't be sure. Speaking of William though, he has a really great show right now up at Platform called "Paper Beings." There's this one huge drawing that really caught my attention, and that's of all the people he ever remembers meeting, just using his memory. The results are pretty interesting, and I would reccomend it.

I'm posting this one because the critic in me says to. For some reason, it just doesn't strike me as somthing unique. I mean, it's sort of pretty, and has some cool colors, but yeah...

painting-wannabe.jpg

Details.

painting-wannabe-detail1.jpg

painting-wannabe-detail2.jpg

It was made by Brian Novatny, and is called "Stepping on Clifford." It costs $5500.

This wasn't actually in any exhibits or studios I went to, but it was randomly in some hallway I passed through while visiting First Thursday. I thought it was kind of interesting and that you guys might get a kick out of it.

dentist-poster.jpg

dentist-poster-detail.jpg

Here's another dentistry piece I saw a few months ago that caught my eye. I really wish I could tell you who made it, but unfortunetly I lost my notes.

teeth.jpg

Can you imagine where all those teeth came from?!

teeth-detail.jpg

Here's my last oral piece for today. This one struck a chord cuz I've actually seen this image a few times over the last bunch of years, but in different context every time. I think originally I saw it on rotten.com as a 6th grader, and then later in Matthew Barney's Cremaster book (Yasha just did a review of one of his show's here!) He prolly modified it by smearing vaseline on it or somthing. But this one is cool cuz it's all stiched together. Awsome!

stitched-motorcycle-acciden.jpg

If I remember correctly, the doods face is all peeled back like that cuz he was in an insane motorcycle accident. See that huge piece of flesh in the center? That's his toungue!

Here's another bizarre one.

scratched-legs.jpg

They were done by Ariana Page Russell. “As it happens, my own skin is extremely sensitive and reactive—blushing easily and swelling at the slightest contact. Although it may appear to be, it is not painful as this surface swells with intense pinkness. I trace a corporal record directly onto my skin, then use mirrors to afford different points of view as I document the puffing process. I am model, photographer and marker.” -APR

This one is kind of interesting too, and definitely some of the best paper mache I've ever seen.

goat-thing1.jpg

goat-thing2.jpg

These two down below must have taken forever. They were done by Elise Richman, and each little spire is stacked drops of oil paint, all on top of eachother. If you've ever painted with oils you know how insanely long they take to dry. This must have taken forever!

Elise-Richman1.jpg

Elise-Richman2.jpg

These one's probably aren't very impressive when they're photographed, but upclose they're kinda cool. I've nicknamed them yuppie clothes since I don't know who made them, but as you can prolly tell, they're different fancy clothes submerged in plastic. It's my assumption that they're left to harden within the desired hexagon shape, and then classified as fine art.

yuppie-clothes1.jpg

yuppie-clothes2.jpg

yuppie-clothes3.jpg

Lastly I want to show you some cool stuff that was over at the Greg Kucera Gallery for a while.

aaron-at-kucera.jpg

That's a picture of my friend A-ron looking at one of the pieces Tim Roda had up.

tim-roda-pic.jpg

That one is called "Untitled #61" and the one A-ron is looking at is "Untitled #39." Unfortuently that's all I was able to photograph before one of the people watching over the place told me not to bother taking photos. They were very specific in mentioning that there is a full catalog of the photos on their website, which you can get to with this link. You should check it out. #43 and #51 (especially) are prolly my favorites.

Anyway, that's all for now, but incase you didn't catch on, every first Thursday of the month here in Seattle, all of the galleries and a lot of the museums open up to let people in for free. It's sort of a big deal, and there's lots of wine and cheese for the yuppies. What they really need though is Pabst and Sparks, me thinks. Anyway, if you're out here in Seattle like me, you should definitely hit it up. I'll be the burnout with the facial scruff walking around in an antihero shirt. If you see me, make sure to come say hi. See ya there!

Congrats on our buddies at Needles and Pens on being open and rad for 11 years now. Mission Local did this little short video featuring Breezy giving a little heads up on what Needles and Pens is all about.


BANDES DE PUB / STRIP BOX

In a filmmaker's thinking, we wish more videos were done in this style. Too much editing and music with a lacking in actual content. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.


AJ Fosik in Tokyo at The Hellion Gallery

Matt Wagner recently emailed over some photos from The Hellion Gallery in Tokyo, who recently put together a show with AJ Fosik (Portland) called Beast From a Foreign Land. The gallery gave twelve of Fosik's sculptures to twelve Japanese artists (including Hiro Kurata who is currently showing in our group show Salt the Skies) to paint, burn, or build upon.


Ferris Plock - Online Show, April 25th

FFDG is pleased to announce an exclusive online show with San Francisco based Ferris Plock opening on Friday, April 25th (12pm Pacific Time) featuring 5 new medium sized acrylic paintings on wood.


GOLD BLOOD, MAGIC WEIRDOS

Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne played host to a huge group exhibition a couple of weeks back, with "Gold Blood, Magic Weirdos" Curated by Melbourne artist Sean Morris. Gold Blood brought together 25 talented painters, illustrators and comic artists from Australia, the US, Singapore, England, France and Spain - and marked the end of the Magic Weirdos trilogy, following shows in Perth in 2012 and London in 2013.


Jeremy Fish at LA's Mark Moore Gallery

San Francisco based Fecal Pal Jeremy Fish opened his latest solo show Hunting Trophies at LA's Mark Moore Gallery last week to massive crowds and cabin walls lined with imagery pertaining to modern conquest and obsession.


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.


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.

Collages of white noise, flowers and tie-dye are all hand cut and assembled to create mystic portals of intrigue. Heavily influenced by themes of death and rebirth, past and present, and the collision of modern culture with antiquity; Form and Void is mysterious look into the odyssey of creation, destruction, and an examination of society at large. -show details

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.
