RIPO, recent works

Tuesday, 29 October 2013 10:27
Written by Trippe

We wanna share with you a lil' taste of what letter loving RIPO has been doing around his Europe. Love the wooden works.

Here's some RIPO action last March at San Francisco's White Walls.

From the field to your plate - Painted in collaboration with Stohead - Special thanks to BC Gallery - Berlin, Germany

Money to Burn - Burnt plywood - 150 x 80 cm - Edition of 3 - Special thanks to uAbureau

Anyway You Cut It - The roofs, walls, and floors of this abandoned factory continue to collapse in on themselves as their support system gets cut away for scrap metal. - I made my own cuts to add rather than take away from this forgotten place. - Montgat, Spain

 

Two One and Shida paint a 13 storey mural in Hong Kong

Friday, 25 October 2013 11:03
Written by Trippe

Two One (Melbourne, Australia) and Shida (also Melbourne) painted this massive 13 storey mural in Hong Kong by abseiling down the facade. That took some skill and guts. Nice work.

You can NOT be scared of heights to complete a 13 story mural in bustling Hong Kong.

Casey Gray & Reka
@White Walls
886 Geary St., San Francisco
What better way to embrace this hot indian summer (last week) than with a tropical-themed art show? Local artist Casey Gray has done just that with his newest show at White Walls, which opened last Saturday night. A good-sized crowd had gathered by the time I got there to see Gray's still lives mixed with his spray painted stencil work that has just a little more depth and contour. He also extended the strung flags from a painting to the actual ceiling of the gallery, creating a fun and upbeat atmosphere, emphasized by the bright paintings of vacation. (PHOTOS)

The mood was brought back into the night in the project space gallery which housed 3 AM Femmes by Berlin-based artist Reka. The walls completely black, with scattered items giving the feeling of bar's bathroom at about 3 AM, perfectly fitting for the show. The works on scrap metal are created through his observations of women who are out at night when he is looking for materials and carry the allure of the search and these chance encounters. Balancing the color and positivity of Gray's show up front, Reka creates a dark space with just a little bit of discomfort and I wonder if anyone has called the phone number left on the mirror...

Meals Interrupted

Tuesday, 22 October 2013 09:35
Written by Trippe

Husband-and-wife Davide Luciano and Claudia Ficca have teamed up to create Meals Interrupted, a photography series of dining tables abruptly disrupted by various events, namely, a bee swarm, a devastating fire, a full-blown cafeteria food fight, a calculated mobster hit, and a heavy rainfall. Each shot vividly captures the disappointment and sense of abandonment that evidently accompanies a gathering that is suddenly and unexpectedly ended.

Sam Jinks' Sculptural Work

Monday, 21 October 2013 11:15
Written by Van Edwards

Sam Jinks' sculptural work sustains the briefest and often most private moments in time. Emotional vulnerability is both the subject and result of his work and moves audiences in a way not expected from contemporary art. For Jinks, his works are not literal representations, but are based on the combination of different stages of life.

Jinks' work can be found in various public collections that include: McClelland Gallery + Sculpture Park, Victoria, Australia ,Shepparton Art Gallery, Victoria, Australia, The Kiran Nader Museum of Art, Dehli , Indian and the Museo Escultura Figurativa Internacional Contemporaenea (MEFIC), Portugal, in addition to various private collections within Australia and internationally.

 

Joram Roukes @Gallery B15 ~Copenhagen

Written by Trippe

COPENHAGEN --- Netherlands based 30 yr. old painter Joram Roukes' currently is showing a body of new paintings Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness at Copenhagen's Gallery B15 through Nov 8th, and they are bananas.

It's wonderful to see an artist skillfully pick up the perfect aspects in contemporary works and tastfully create something his own. One of the best shows we've seen this year. Great work. (Photos: Henrik Haven)

 

Stroszek: the Dancing Chicken

Friday, 18 October 2013 11:21
Written by Trippe

Many movies end with hopeless characters turning to crime. No movie ends like "Stroszek." Bruno and Mr. Scheitz take a rifle and go to rob the bank, which is closed, so they rob the barber shop next door of $32 and, leaving their car running, walk directly across the street to a supermarket, where Bruno has time to pick up a frozen turkey before the cops arrest Mr. Scheitz. Bruno then drives to a nearby amusement arcade, where he feeds in quarters to make chickens dance and play the piano. Then he boards a ski lift to go around and around and around.

This last sequence is just about the best he has ever filmed, Herzog says on the commentary track of the DVD. His crew members hated the dancing chicken so much they refused to participate, and he shot the footage himself. The chicken is a "great metaphor," he says--for what, he's not sure. My theory: A force we cannot comprehend puts some money in the slot, and we dance until the money runs out.

 

Michael Page at The Shooting Gallery

Friday, 18 October 2013 08:43
Written by Rachel Ralph

SAN FRANCISCO --- I love the paintings in Michael Page's (SF) show The Places We'll Go currently at the Shooting Gallery. They're soaked. They drip with color and seem to be saturated in a varnish that covers the surface fluidly, but the listed materials of them don't seem to indicate this covering layer. Emphasizing the playfulness indicated by the title of the show, these paintings could literally occupy your vision for hours, with your eyes racing back and forth across them. The crowd at the opening seemed to agree as remarks of delight and smiles spread across the room. The photographs do not do this work justice, and if you are in the city, they are absolutely worth a trip to see in person; just go.

The project space gallery won't dissapoint either. Currently housing Oakland-based artist Lauren Napolitano's A Well-Marked Path, the space feels like a step back in time and in the direction of the southwest. Combining paintings on found objects with delicate drawings on photographs and other found materials, this work brings a sense of a personal intimate relation with these objects. The sense of wonder fostered by Page's show in the main gallery was continued in this space, which drew viewers into its small niches with small, beautiful, and nostalgic elements. Simply, these shows are not to be missed.

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

 

Nikki McClure at Needles & Pens, Friday 4/11
Wednesday, 09 April 2014 09:42

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.
