Bryan Schnelle - Mini Interview

Wednesday, 13 April 2011 09:48
Written by Trippe

Location? Age? Education? Website?

Los Angeles, 31, Self-taught, www.bryanschnelle.com

How would you describe your work to someone?

Probably very poorly. I’m not much of a writer. I would much prefer to show someone my work and let it speak for itself, let them come up with their own meaning based on their own personal experience with the work. There’s a lot more power in that. But basically I’m just observing and reacting to what I see going on around me and in our society. Observing values and ideals and trying to create a realistic and honest visual document. And I love the idea of using something that is so empty and meaningless to create a work of art that is relevant and meaningful. I still use paint when I need to, but with the kind of ideas I’m exploring it seems a lot more honest and direct to use the images that we’re bombarded with daily as drawing/painting tools, the very things that are telling us what’s normal and not normal, what’s beautiful and not beautiful, what’s desirable and not desirable, what life is supposed to be. A kind of amalgamation of form and content.

Influences?

In no particular order: Ingmar Bergman, Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Philip Glass, Michael C. Ruppert, John Baldessari, peak oil documentaries, Decasia: The State of Decay (A film by Bill Morrison), Chris Johanson, various types of Metal, Charlie Sheen’s recent vernacular.

Cheese burgers or tofu burgers?

Both. Simultaneously.

 

CRICKET PITCH

Tuesday, 12 April 2011 14:00
Written by Bryan Derballa

I've always wanted to go to India. Then I did...for three days. Can't quite cross it off the bucket list, but it was a good glimpse into the country from the cricket pitch. To put together a lookbook for NIke, I traveled to Dheli and Mumbai to shoot two players from India's National Cricket Team -- a young batter named Virat Kholi and a veteran bowler named Zaheer Khan. Both rad guys, which made it all the better that they won the Cricket World Cup two weeks ago. Couldn't be more stoked for the team and look forward to getting back for a more extensive visit.

Magician's Garden
Paintings & Sketches by Josh Keyes
April 7 - April 30, 2011
Opening Thurs, April 7 (7-10pm)
@FFDG
248 Fillmore St. @Haight

Josh Keyes was born in Tacoma, Washington. He received a BFA in 1992 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA in 1998 from Yale. Keyes is drawn to the clinical and often cold vocabulary of scientific textbook illustrations, which express the empirical "truth" of the world and natural phenomena. He infuses into a rational stage set many references to contemporary events along with images and themes from his personal mythology and experience. These elements come together in an unsettling vision, one that speaks to the challenges of our time. Keyes currently lives and works in Portland Oregon with his wife, graphic designer Lisa Ericson.

Featuring drawings and paintings.

And be sure to get your Josh Keyes poster in today's San Francisco Chronicle's 96 Hours section.

And our neighbors at Fifty24SF will open JOHNNY "KMNDZ" RODRIGUEZ: THE HEAVIEST 7-10pm

 

SXSW #2

Wednesday, 06 April 2011 10:17
Written by Tod Seelie

Tod Seelie continues with his coverage of SXSW. In his words, Worst thing at SXSW ever: Watching a white guy with a ponytail "rapping" about "drinking diet coke" while his model-looking fake "DJ" pretended to do things on a mixer and dance like a stripper. I cannot make this stuff up.

 

This is Forever - Video

Tuesday, 05 April 2011 14:00
Written by Van Edwards

This video was made as an installation element for my show at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles titled: This is Forever, opening April 9th 2011. I wanted to showcase things that inspire me and things I collect: old things, colorfull things, wooden things, childrens books. I'm really just a big kid, and I'm not afraid to say I like to play with toys.

Grand Theft Auto - 41" x 54" Handwoven Tapestry

How would you describe your work to someone?

I weave tapestries of the pictures you would delete if you ever uploaded that drunk night of debauchery from your camera.

Influences?

I am influenced by old tapestry weavers that made huge gritty abstract tapestries, Helena Hernmarck who weaves images with incredible detail, skateboarder blogs where street art and huge consumptions of alcohol is mixed with shots of random girls' breasts, everyday life, and things that happen on a more personal or family level that can be related to it all.

Kiss - 41" x 31" Handwoven Tapestry

Cheese burgers or tofu burgers?

Tofu burger with french fries and a diet coke.

Working routine? Music? Time of day?

Ideally I work from 2pm to 4am. I have music, npr, internet tv or nothing going. It depends on which part of the process I'm working on.

Kiss - in process

How do you pay the bills?

I pay my bills with residency stipends, selling some work and a part time job at whole foods market. Money is rough, but luckily Philly is cheap and I've got a low standard of living.

Amy Brown @Curator in SF

Monday, 04 April 2011 09:50
Written by Trippe

Our buddy Adam headed out to the new Curator ladies clothing shop on 1767 Church St done by She-Bible to view collages by Amy Brown.

Interesting fact about Amy --> She works for the SF Giants and got to travel with the team to Texas for the final few games of the World Series last year. After the last game, when the Giants won, Amy was allowed to celebrate with the team on the field. How rad would that have been?... Besides getting to experience something that many would pay a lot for, she makes fantastic collages.

 

Free Fridayz: Nasal Issues

Friday, 01 April 2011 16:02
Written by Ashley Taylor

Oh man, Nasal Issues suck. Can't breath. Horrible way to try and get to sleep. Gives me huge anxiety just thinking about it... You know what? Fight it. Stay up all night and draw for Free Fridayz. Listen to loud music and scare it away. Maybe some death metal? Whiskey? 3 packs of Winstons?... Yeah, maybe not. Put that sniffer over a pot of steaming water. Mix in some gasoline.

 

Thanks, RIPO

"Arrangement" by Michelle Fleck
Friday, 18 April 2014 10:23

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.

Jeremy Fish Opening a Solo Show in August at FFDG
Tuesday, 15 April 2014 09:33

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.

Statue Of A Homeless Jesus Startles A Wealthy Community
Monday, 14 April 2014 10:20

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb. The sculptor, who has an affinity for street art, created it to remind us that "We believe that that's the kind of life Jesus had," Buck says. "He was, in essence, a homeless person." ~READ ON

 

Art or Vandalism? See the World’s First Graffiti Drone
Saturday, 12 April 2014 10:30

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

Think how high those throw ups can be now.

Speaking of Ocean Beach, if you know, you know, but if you don't... it's not what the average american thinks of when thinking of a California Beach (missing 14 yr. old yesterday). Can't believe we used to drunk naked swim at 3am in the dead if winter... being surfers probably helped us not dying.

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

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.


Flavio Samelo's Downtown Sao Paulo Murals
