Whole Foods Rips Off Corey Arnold?
    Tuesday, 18 June 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Tucker Nichols emailed over this Whole Foods poster (below right) which looks a lot like one of Corey Arnold's photos (bottom left). Coincidence? Where they inspired by Corey's photo? Did Corey actually shoot the photo? Who knows and Corey is fishing for salmon right now (like this), so we can't ask him to find out.

Wait, on this Instagram, Corey Arnold writes "Ripped off!", so we guess that's your answer.

Whole Foods highly inspired by a Corey Arnold photo. Ripped off?

Wonderland in Belgium w/ Corey Arnold
    Thursday, 05 April 2012 /// Written by Corey Arnold

Last weekend was the opening of a massive photo festival in Knokke-Heist, Belgium called Wonderland. Christophe De Jaeger, the curator of the Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels (BOZAR), chose six international photographers to show their work all over town, indoors and outdoors on a gigantic scale. The photographers include Michael Light, Ruud Van Empel, Sanna Kannisto, Olaf Otto Becker, Corey Arnold, and Gerco De Ruijter.

Knokke is a high class beach town on the coast of Belgium, and they spared no expense producing enormous inkjet prints on Canvas and Dibond plates. The show was designed to be a bike tour taking you on a scavenger hunt around the city and countryside. I also had a solo exhibition of Fish-Work images at the Sincfala Museum in Heist. Here are some snaps! There is also an cultural TV station interview online that you can watch the here. The Europeans know how to spend money on public art. The show show runs through June. www.fotofestival.be -Corey Arnold

Fishing With My Dad
    Wednesday, 12 October 2011 /// Written by Corey Arnold

I grew up in Southern California in the little suburb of Vista. My dad grew avocados and tropical plants for money, so when I wasn't spending weekends planting or picking fruit, we were usually at sea sport fishing for mako, bonito, yellowtail, dorado, and rockfish or casting in lakes all over the west. My father's obsession with fish rubbed off on me and I quickly became known as "the fisherman" in elementary school. I lugged around a huge shark trolling rod for halloween many years in a row, and would often bring odd sea creatures and baby sharks to class for show and tell. My dad is also partially responsible for my photography habit. Every fishing trip of my life was meticulously documented, or at least the catch of the day was recorded. I've recently been thumbing throw those old photographs with nostalgia. Not only are they a record of how much more fashionable I was in the 80's, they are also telling of how my early exposure to nature, the sea, and the endless quest to find fish helped solidify my fate as both photographer and commercial fisherman.

I've compiled some of the most compelling images into a series called "Fishing with My Dad 1978-1995". The images were shot by either my father or myself, as we would take turns photographing each other holding our catch. Nazraeli Press recently published a small book of these images as part of their One Picture Book Series #69 which includes an original signed print and lives in a limited edition of 500. You can watch a little youtube video of the book HERE

A solo exhibition of the images will open this Saturday, October 15th, 6-10pm at Ampersand Gallery and Fine Books in Portland, Oregon. My dad and I will be present. Hope to see you there!

Breakfast w/ Corey Arnold
    Tuesday, 22 February 2011 /// Written by Trippe

What are some of the stories you’ve heard from other fisherman?

I’ve met a guy in Seattle that quit crab fishing because he was in one of the biggest boats: a 150 foot crab boat that was 35 foot tall off the water to the windows. While he was driving, he had a wave that hit him so hard it went through all the windows, ripped the roof off, picked him up and somehow catapulted him fifty feet down onto the back deck. He survived and didn’t break anything. A total miracle.

FISH-WORK
Photographs by Corey Arnold
Opening: Friday, Feb 11th, 2011 (6-9pm)
@FFDG

Portland based photographer and fisherman himself (Corey's starred on the popular show Deadliest Catch), Corey Arnold, has been traveling the world documenting the world's fisherman since 2002. His show at Fecal Face Dot Gallery (opening Feb 11th, 2011) will feature a selection of photos featured in his new book, Fish-Work, Published by Nazraeli Press 2010 & available online here (Corey will be signing copies of his book from 6 to 7pm during the opening).

In 2009 PDN named Corey one of the top 30 emerging photographers. Corey Arnold is represented by Charles A. Hartman Fine Art in Portland, Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica and commercially by Redeye Represents in Los Angeles.

Fish-Work is the title of an ongoing life project documenting my journey as a commercial fisherman in Alaska and my travels abroad exploring fishing cultures around the world. Since 1995, I’ve worked seasonally as a crab, salmon, cod, and halibut fisherman in Alaska. But it wasn’t until 2002 that I picked up a camera and got serious about telling the story of this unique little world I’d stumbled upon.

I have a love-hate relationship with commercial fishing. The work is often grueling and mundane, sometimes dangerous and soul crushingly repetitive. But inversely, there is beauty and freedom in the act of manual labor, surrounded by a vast and remote sea wilderness. For a fisherman, the reward is often found in the amazing stories of triumph, disaster, and pride that are brought home to the civilized world. I’ve chosen to tell my story in photographs.

This selection has been culled from my most recent three month journey living amongst European fisherman in Spain, France, the Netherlands, Scotland, Greece, Germany, Poland, Norway and Ireland. They are accompanied by my images from seven years of work aboard the Bering Sea crab boat Rollo and my upcoming series Graveyard Point, the name of the seasonal salmon fishing community I’m a part of in Bristol Bay, Alaska. -Corey Arnold

Fish-Work: The Bering Sea

Fish-Work: The Bering Sea
Photographs by Corey Arnold
Hardcover, 15 x 12 inches, 80 pages, 47 four-color plates
Published by Nazraeli Press 2010
For sale in the Fecal Face Online Shoppe (signed copies)

We're happy to preview our friend Corey Arnold's new book here on Fecal Face. Corey has been traveling the world documenting the world's fishermen through grants when he's not fishing himself in the depths of the Bearing Sea. He's starred on the show Deadliest Catch. His photos have been featured everywhere from Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, to the The Paris Review.

Corey Arnold opens his solo show Fish Work @Fecal Face Dot Gallery on February 11th here in San Francisco.

The photographs in “Fish-Work: The Bering Sea” capture moments from Arnold’s grueling retreats as a crew member aboard a fishing boat to the Bering Sea. With scenes of boat life so vivid that some shots can induce fear or seasickness, the artist’s perspective also reveals the tender soulfulness of a fisherman’s extended life at sea. His skillful compositions depict the simultaneous bravery, toil, humor and gumption that “fish-work” demands. Yet the series also illuminates the aesthetic sublimity that can only be experienced, ultimately, by those willing to risk their lives where the sea breaks its back. Having survived several seasons afloat these icy and unforgiving waters, we are lucky that Arnold has taken time to document his artistic impressions of this rare lifestyle and extended us a vicarious glimpse.

How to be a European Fisherman Photographer
    Thursday, 02 December 2010 /// Written by Corey Arnold

We're very excited to post another great blog from our pal and great photographer Corey Arnold who started his fishing life on the Bering Sea fishing for crab. One of the ships he worked on, The Rollo, was featured on the TV show Deadliest Catch. It was then that Corey began his life's work of documenting the lives and work of the world's fishermen.

His feature How to be an Alaskan Fisherman is on of Fecal Face's most popular, and he opens the solo show FISH-WORK Europe on Dec 2nd (through Jan 15) at Portland's Charles A. Hartman Fine Art gallery. His forthcoming book FISH-WORK: The Bering Sea can be pre ordered on his website. He'll be signing copies and showing photos @Fecal Face Dot Gallery on Feb 11, 2011. This blog documents his time recently photographing the lives of Europe's fishermen and women... and it rules.


Fish Processors in Vigo, Spain

Earlier this year, I received and email from a freelance producer in the UK asking if I was interested in a long term photo project documenting the state of the commercial fishing industry in the European Union. The job was for a coalition of sustainable fishing advocates, commercial fishing groups, and environmental organizations called Ocean2012 that are working together to reform the currently messy Common Fisheries Policy in the European Union. It was a pretty mind blowing request. I'd decided long ago that photographing the commercial fishing lifestyle around the world would be my life's work. Not my only work, but definitely a subject matter that I'd like to revisit annually in some form throughout life. Needless to say, it was the perfect match. I still can't believe my luck.


Dutch Owned Beam Trawler in the North Sea

The original plan was for me to take photographs that focus on one large and one small port in each of four countries around Europe, covering the major fishing ports and regions. I would photograph everything related to fishing including the fishermen, their families, communities, processors, shipyards, netmakers, and everyone that would be affected by changes in common fisheries policy management in Europe. My intentions were simple: Create a broad image library of the current state of the commercial fishing industry in Europe (and have a lot of fun doing it).

Corey Arnold - 10yrs of Fecal Face
    Wednesday, 01 September 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Everyday leading up to FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred, we'll be adding short interviews with artists participating.

We've been following Corey Arnold's career for many years now. Somewhere on the internet we saw his images of men crab fishing on the Bearing Sea many years before the show Deadliest Catch was on the air. In fact, Corey was on the 1st and 2nd seasons of the show (Rollo). Corey's photos illustrated a sight few had witnessed. With a Fecal Face like minded sensibility (we later learned that Corey grew up skateboarding), Corey captured the harsh life of fishing in the Bearing Sea but his stunning images also incorporate a subtle whimsical edge that separates his work from so many others who might dare to endure the grueling fishing lifestyle. His photos are sincere where his love of the sea is quiet and respectful while skirting a witty edge.

Corey Arnold was nominated for the Aperture West Book Prize, the Santa Fe Prize for Photography, and named one of PDN’s 30 for 2009. In 2010, Corey has been commissioned by the PEW charitable trust to photograph the state of the EU fishing industry.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

I was broke after 5 years of school, living in SF. Parking cars for a living. Then I took off for Europe wearing a backpack. I traveled from the North Cape of Norway down to Sicily. That trip transformed my perception of the world forever. Then I came back to SF and parked more cars.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

10 years ago I was mostly a black and white picture taker. I was obsessed with darkness, grainy film, night animals, empty landscapes. I was still searching for a niche to run with and experimenting a lot. I used to spend one night a week wandering around the Presidio Park (near Golden Gate Bridge) photographing raccoons and empty buildings. At some point, things lightened up and I started shooting color. I moved to Norway in 2002 and at the same time started crab fishing seasonally in Alaska. Maybe I got inspired by all the darkness to seek a lighter existence. The past 3 years, I've had non stop travel assignments and exhibitions. Have barely had time to update my website... but sitting on a ton of unseen work. Pictures are growing larger too.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

I think that I would have thought that I (that's confusing) I'd be a carpenter or doing something for money other then photography. It never really occurred to me that I could do this for a living.

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.

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.

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
