Charles Martin - Mini Interview

Friday, 18 February 2011 11:43
Written by Trippe

We met a young skater named Charles Martin, an interesting guy studying at SFAI, through our friend Henry Gunderson. Charles would stop in the gallery from time to time, and the last time he came through he told us he was off to NYC to study at Cooper Union where his brother also studys. Getting into Cooper Union is no small feat. They're one of the most selective schools in the U.S. Well known for their art and science programs, C.U. admits students based on merit alone and provides each with a full-tuition scholarship. A FREE top rate highly demanding education.

Into his first year at Cooper Union we wanted to see what Charles was working on and know how he was handling the big city and the school's heavy demands.

Charles in his studio space.

How is Cooper Union going? Is it as tough as people have said?

We get a lot of homework; we have a lot of classes. Most of our time goes to school. The toughest part for me has been time management which is a large part of what it seems we’re supposed to learn in this first year. People who can’t keep up get the boot. There are a lot of distractions in Manhattan, that if you can fall victim to, it only makes it harder. I heard some things before coming here that proved to be complete lies in my situation. It gets really nerve wrecking at times, but no pain, no gain.

You're a Bay Area guy. How is the Big Apple treating you?

It’s a lot different than San Francisco. If I could change one thing it would be the winter. I grew up in Buffalo, NY so I’m pretty accustomed to snow, maybe even TOO accustomed to the snow; me and old man winter have a love hate relationship. New York has been really overwhelming, but I am definitely enjoying myself.

Besides schoolwork, what have you been up to?

This semester I have less foundation classes so I’ve been able to paint a lot more. From January fourth to 18th was winter break, so the school was open but NO ONE was here. It was AWESOME I just got to come to my studio everyday and make work, no assignments. I’ve been reading about black history and other radical organizations that make it their business to fight whatever injustices they face. I also have a book about Einstein and a couple of memoirs. When I can I work on my apartment. I just got some rolls of film, and I found out that my school has a color processor, so I'm going to check that out. There’s a yoga studio really close that I've been trying to take advantage of.

Ignacio Murua @Kokoro Studio SF

Thursday, 17 February 2011 15:00
Written by Trippe

Kokoro Studio (682 Geary St here in San Francisco) emailed a few images from thier current show with Chilean artist Ignacio Murua. The show Bomba 4 continues through Feb 24th.

Kokoro Studio has been open a little over a year showing local and international artists. Hours: Tue-Sat 1pm-7pm

Works by Chilean artist Ignacio Murua

Ignacio Murua lives and works in Santiago de Chile and Brooklyn, NY... He is inspired the Chilean yellow press newspapers that publish images of ideal female bodies as the "women of the week." What the popular culture esteems as perfection, Murua translates as uncomfortable and grotesque. By its denial of the familiar, flawed (normal) body, such perfection is encountered as a deformity. Murua uses a unique process of "painting without using paint" to contrast the disturbingly artificial perfection with smeared and dripping strokes. He works quickly to manipulate the wet pigment of a freshly printed photograph, causing the very substance of the image to be distorted, obscured, erased, or washed away. Remaining is a blurred silhouette, the suggestion of a posture that replaces individual identity. In a global society preoccupied with age and beauty, the work of Ignacio Murua disregards time, wiping out both perfection and its potential for decay.

Merry Karnowsky Gallery presented Arms Out, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles based artist Mel Kadel. With 47 new works, Kadel uses coffee-stained paper, micron pens, and hand mixed ink wash, pencils and blades to create beautifully patterned, layered, and colorful narrative works that "communicates interconnectedness, balance, and the idea that we are all part of a system." We stopped by to check out the show and here are some pictures. You can go see Mel's show which is up till March 5, 2011 along with artist Victor Castillo's Rebel With A Cause. -Michael Hsiung

We've been a fan of Adam Hashemi's shorts for years, and this one may be the best. Filmed for the Danish Road Safety Council. Yeah, it never made it to TV. I think you'll know why after watching it. So f-ing great.

Written by Michael Hsiung

Last time THIS Los Angeles gallery had a THESE Friends it was pretty crazy, and this year they decided to celebrate their one year anniversary with the opening reception of THESE Friends 2. The crowds poured out on the street, and it would have been an overall great opening and night, but some jerk stole a one of a kind 8 x 10 Polaroid piece of the late Dennis Hopper by Jason Lee. You can read about it here. So keep your eyes out. There were over 100 artists in the show including: Mel Kadel, Travis Millard, Andrew Pommier, Michael Sieben, Bill McRight, Alex Prager, Seonna Hong, Jim Houser , Geoff McFetridge and more!

Archaic Revival @Las Ciengas Projects (LA)

Wednesday, 16 February 2011 11:35
Written by Michael Hsiung

Me and some friends decided take the super highway to Culver City to see Pearl's piece in the group show, Archaic Revival, curated by Los Angeles-based artist Dani Tull, at Las Ciengas Projects. The title of the show Archaic Revival is a reference to Terence McKenna's 1992 book The Archaic Revival: Speculations on Psychedelic Mushrooms, the Amazon, Virtual Reality, UFOs, Evolution, Shamanism, the Rebirth of the Goddess, and the End of History. Okay, RAD, I'm in!

The Archaic Revival features 31 established and emerging artists and performers from Los Angeles, Portland, and Rotterdam whose works can be considered as manifestations of a burgeoning dialogue from within the collective subconscious of contemporary art. The artists in the exhibition use allegorical code, sacred plant knowledge, magic and an untethered glossolalia, while their works intuit mysticism, alchemy, fetishistic processes, prophecy, and even hum

This show became the 1st of 5 installations during 2004-2005 shot with Sony VX-2000's and Canon SLR's. Other episodes will include collaborations with Kiel Johnson, Florencio Zavala, and Mel Kadel.

Inside Outside
Brothers Ruina & Kid-chalao
@ALL-OVER (Lyon, France)

ALL-OVER were nice to email us over some photos from their current show featuring works from these two brothers involved in the Spanish graff & street art scene. Great show.

Translated from French:
Inside Outside is as the first exhibition of the brothers Ruina & Kid-chalao which, for the occasion, leaving behind a long career of vagrancy and begging. Our two young anti-heroes come from the slums of the Spanish state and were fed in the streets of cities like Bilbao, Barcelona and Madrid. Inherited a long tradition of myths and legends Castilian lover of popular culture, magic and absurdity, they share a surprising dependence on the smell of spray paint and nails to the tipp-ex.

Jeremy Fish Opening a Solo Show in August at FFDG

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

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

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

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.
