DALLAS, TX --- Our buddy and SF based collage artist Alexis Mackenzie turned us onto the work of NYC based Clark Goolsby whose show SHATTER opens Saturday at Dallas's Circuit12 Contemporary.

Goolsby's paintings are collage but the elements for the collages he creates himself/ not found... Random fact about Goolsby is that he was a former NCAA basketball player. Bad at Sports? Not this time. --- PREVIEW

November 6 - December 7, 2013
SAN FRANCISCO --- The Dolby Chadwick Gallery has the painting game on lock. With Joshua Meyer's (b.'74 Cambridge, MA) new show, Rustle, Sparkle, Flutter, Float, the gallery has opened yet another show of really nice paintings.

With a thick, impasto finish, Meyer's paintings feel like treasures. As you get lost in the jagged confusion of thick swatches of color, figures emerge in the most subtle ways. The colors are enticing, but these figures are mesmerizing. I could get lost in these canvases for days. Simply, these are some really great paintings and I highly recommend you go see them before the show closes on December 7th.

Joshua Meyer was born in 1974 in Lubbock, TX. He currently lives and works in Cambridge, MA. He earned his BA from Yale University in 1996 and has since exhibited across the United States, Asia and Europe. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including a prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2008 and a grant from the San Francisco-based Sustainable Arts Foundation in 2011. This will be Meyer’s third solo exhibition at the Dolby Chadwick Gallery. A catalog will be published on the occasion of the show and available through the Gallery.

Faile's Mural for Spectrum Art Projects

Friday, 15 November 2013 15:03
Written by Trippe

TORONTO --- The finishing touches have been put on the large-scale, colorful and dynamic public art work by Canadian-born Patrick McNeil along with his art collaborator, Patrick Miller. Collectively known as FAILE, the Brooklyn-based duo designed the football-field-sized mural, located on Bathurst Street between Davenport and St. Clair in the city of Toronto.

Coordinated by Spectrum Art Projects, the ambitious installation marks the first large-scale FAILE mural in Canada. The images from their extensive archive were carefully selected as a nod to the history and heritage of the installation’s unique location, identifying the history of Aboriginal People's in the neighborhood, and the Tollkeeper’s Cottage, believed to be the only surviving tollgate from the 1800s in Canada. 

“This marks our fourth project in Toronto and FAILE's first major project in Canada. We’re thrilled that Patrick and Patrick were able to create this extraordinary piece – one that reflects the community and its history,” say Simon Cole of Spectrum Art Projects. “It has been great to see the neighborhood engaging with and embracing the installation and, now that the mural is complete, the excitement is palpable. We’re certain this piece will be an iconic addition to the area for years to come.”

Jeff Depner at NYC's Nancy Margolis

Friday, 15 November 2013 13:33
Written by Trippe

Vancouver based painter Jeff Depner ('12 interview) is currently showing new paintings in VARIATIONS BLACK NAPKINS at NYC's Nancy Margolis Gallery through Dec 7th. -PHOTOS

The work ebbs and flows between graphic qualities and thick painterly styles with muted but contemporary feeling colors. The constant process of ‘improvised moves' allows some of the work to be based in grid like structures. It allows some of the smaller paintings a chance for inquiry in constructive qualities and aspects of painting, inserting his work into the long history of painting. -our '12 interview

In his abstract acrylic paintings, Vancouver-based Depner explores compositional structure through the relationship between colors. His works’ painted layers create singular, functioning systems of interacting parts, yet juxtapositions permeate—between the architectonic and the organic, the graphic and the painterly, the matte and the opulent.

ICY Signs + Stephen Powers
ICY Signs - Perfection is Standard, Mistakes Cost Extra
October 24 to November 16, 2013
@Joshua Liner, NYC
I moved home to the Bay Area about 4 years ago and recently had the opportunity to visit New York City for the first time since. Having missed Barry McGee & Raymond Pettibon by a day, I felt lucky to have an old friend clue me into the ICY Signs show when I arrived. PHOTOS

Over the last decade, Steven Powers has proven his talent, wit and superior work ethic many times over. Beyond getting to study his work up close, it was neat to see the talent of all the other sign painters and collaborators he keeps company with. Had I known John would be posting these shit photos I would have documented their work a bit more properly. Take a minute to visit the gallery's selected work pages to see for yourself. - Adam C.

Tiffany Bozic Interview

Tiffany Bozic's solo show Sense of Wonder is in its final week at San Francisco's FFDG. Before this wonderful show comes to a close, we wanted to ask Bozic about her methodology, lifestyle, influences and generally what makes her tick.

Felidae - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 18" x 24" - pricing & availability: info(at)ffdg.net

You normally work in a much larger scale. Why did you choose the smaller size for the works?

I decided to make these small paintings for two main reasons. The first reason was to explore things I've always wanted to try but never quite fit into the larger paintings. The second reason was to just sit down and make a painting every 2-3 days of whatever I was interested in at the time. It felt very fun and liberating.

Goldfish & Tadpoles - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 8" x 8"

Calligraphy - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 20" x 14"

Obviously your work reflects a skewed and creative reflection of the natural world. How do you come up with your creatures and pairings?

I don't really know where the ideas come from. I've always had an immense appetite for exploring and discovering new things to paint. I really try to go back to being a kid with no inhibitions, to be self unaware and happily captivated by whatever I'm doodling.

When I was younger I spent a lot of time alone outdoors constantly turning stones to discover something cool to draw. Later I would bring that critter back to my studio and make a drawing of it. I suppose I am still doing that. I'm still that little kid at the kitchen table with a pad of paper letting the pencil carry me away into another world.

Strigiformes - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 12" x 16"

Chiroptera - acrylic on maple panel, 2013 - 6" x 6"

You recently moved up to Marin with your family. How has the transition been from city to a more relaxed surrounding?

I've always wanted to be able to complain about the deer eating every plant I put in the ground, and now I can finally do that!

We moved into a cottage under the redwood trees at the foot of Mt. Tamalpais. From outside our door there are 5 miles of open space until it drops into the ocean. I feel like I am already becoming part of the land and I enjoy all the diverse organisms living around my house. I notice the grand change of seasons and the tiny changes that silently move along like the banana slugs that I pick up and move off the trail when I go for hikes. For the first time in my life I feel humbled and grateful to have finally found my home.

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.

Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:37

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.


Interview w/ Kevin Earl Taylor

We haven't been featuring many interviews as of late. Let's change that up as we check in with a few local San Francisco artists like Kevin Earl Taylor here whom we studio visited back in 2009 (PHOTOS & VIDEO). It's been awhile, Kevin...


Peter Gronquist @The Shooting Gallery

If you like guns and boobs, head on over to the Shooting Gallery; just don't expect the work to be all cheap ploys and hot chicks. With Make Stuff by Peter Gronquist (Portland) in the main space and Morgan Slade's Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in the project space, there is plenty spectacle to be had, but if you look just beyond it, you might actually get something out of the shows.


Jay Bo at Hamburg's Circle Culture

Berlin based Jay Bo recently held a solo show at Hamburg's Circle Culture featuring some of his most recent paintings. We lvoe his work.


NYCHOS @Fifty24SF

Fifty24SF opened Street Anatomy, a new solo show by Austrian artist Nychos a week ago last Friday night. He's been steadily filling our city with murals over the last year, with one downtown on Geary St. last summer, and new ones both in the Haight and in Oakland within the last few weeks, but it was really great to see his work up close and in such detail.

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.
