Russell Leng | The Diamond Sea
    Wednesday, 24 October 2012 /// Written by Van Edwards

The group show, The Diamond Sea, runs through Nov 10th in San Francisco at FFDG. We've been profiling the artists in the show and we contiue with one of our favorite painters who happens to reside in Vancouver.

Russell Leng is currently living in Edinburgh, UK, pursuing a MFA from Edinburgh College of Art and has been exhibited throughout North America and Europe, and awards include 1st Place Painting Prize from the Surrey Art Gallery, and a BMO Student Invitational nomination. He has been featured in numerous online and print publications including Gestalten, Chronicle, and the Globe and Mail.

Location? Age? Education? Website?

C9, Edinburgh. B.A. from Trinity Western University, and currently pursing a M.F.A. from Edinburgh College of Art.

How would you describe your work to someone?

I'm interested in opposites and finding ways to negotiate between them. Inquiries into natural vs. fabricated environments, chance vs. control, and digital vs. firsthand experiences have all been recent investigations that aim to articulate contemporary in-between states I find myself in. In my paintings I have been focusing specifically on the conglomeration of natural and man-made environments melding together through rigid shapes interacting with loose marks.

Influences?

The good ones and the bad ones.

Favorite place traveled?

Toss up between Indonesia and Colombia.

What are you really excited about right now?

I am very excited to be a part of The Diamond Sea and among such an amazing artist roster! I am also very, very excited for my solo show Double Twist. It opens the same night as The Diamond Sea, at Galerie Trois Points in Montreal, Quebec!


I just gave you $1,000,000. Quick, what do you do with it!

I'd like to go on a very long road trip across up, down and across North America in a super luxury RV with wifi and unlimited bandwidth.



Best way to spend a day off?

These days it's usually drinking tea, responding to neglected emails and watching an entire season Top Chef in one sitting.

Meredith Dittmar | The Diamond Sea
    Tuesday, 09 October 2012 /// Written by Trippe

As the group show The Diamond Sea approaches the opening this Saturday, Oct 13th (6-9pm) @FFDG in San Francisco, we wanted to introduce, or in most cases "reintroduce" you to the artists who will be participating.

Meredith Dittmar lives and works in Portland, OR. Her last solo show was in Mexico City @Fifty24MX featuring some of her recent clay sculptures. Besides working on her intricately beautiful clay sculptures, Meredith also works in animation and design.

Location? Age? Education? Website?

Portland OR, 38, Umass CompSci/Sociology, http://www.corporatepig.com

How would you describe your work to someone?

I know Im supposed to be good at this question but it never seems to go well. I usually say something along the lines of "relief-like sculpture in polymer clay mounted in shadowboxes"

Influences?

Visualizations of maths and science, Integral theory, Non-dual teachers, everywhere I have been and everything I have seen

Favorite place traveled?

It’s a boring answer but I like it all - same Now, different scenery!

Working routine? Music? Time of day?

Mornings are my best time and music changes with my mood and the kind of work Im doing. If theres a lot of repetition Ill listen to nerdy talks

Describe your process for creating new work.

I research, collect images and words, then let it marinate a bit. Next I mix the clay palate and begin making small parts inspired by my research until I have a decent library of assets to pull from. From there I settle in and start making larger pieces. I like to do all the sculpting first for all the pieces I'm going to make, then move on to painting the backgrounds and prepping the pieces to be mounted. My husband makes all my shadow boxes. The final step is to glue them and clean them and seal them up.

This Year in Gallery Fires
    Thursday, 27 September 2012 /// Written by Trippe

Not exactly the most joyous anniversary we've celebrated, but today marks the 1 year anniversary of our fire at our old location on Fillmore at Haight.

Was a hectic year, to say the least, but in the end we're in a larger space on Mission and 19th and are hopefully at the end of our insane transient gallery nomad status... One lesson learned, it's good to have insurance and it doesn't hurt to have friends who live across the street and on the street (Upper Playground, Mike Midden & Stephanie). Thanks to them we were able to save a lot of work that otherwise would have been ruined.

To see some video and pics from that bummer of days, click here.

Andreas Trolf Benefit @FFDG
    Tuesday, 18 September 2012 /// Written by Trippe

We posted the video from Andreas Trolf's benefit show @FFDG last week. Also got some photos from the fun night where money was raised to help a friend and artist who was involved in a horrible motorcycle accident just days before his health care was meant to kick in. If you wanna contribute a few dollars to help the man out, there's a Paypal account set up to go directly towards Trolf's medical bills. If you sign into paypal.com, just send the funds to andreasrelieffund@gmail.com, but make sure that you send the money as a gift and not as a payment. Any help would be much appreciated.

We're pretty excited to learn that across the street from FFDG on Mission at 19th Mission Oyster Bar Seafood Restaurant is slated to open this fall featuring classic dishes like clam chowder, steamed shellfish, cioppino, oysters and whole crabs roasted with garlic. For lunch, there will be crab melts, seafood salads, fish and chips and the like. Should add a welcome dose of diversity amidst the nearby taquerias and other Central- and South-American-style joints on the block. Gamez tells Tablehopper the opening will happen by early November. Beer and wine only. ~details here & here

Know where we're going to be jamming on crab this winter. Perfect place for some post opening/ next day hang-over crab eating/ hair-of-the-dog beer drink.

Video - Andreas Trolf Benefit
    Tuesday, 11 September 2012 /// Written by Trippe

A short video from the Andreas Trolf benefit that we hosted last Friday. Thanks again to the artists, the sponsors and to everyone who came out to purchase raffle tickets and original artworks. Amazing to see so many people support a good dude whose medical bills are WAY up there.

Andreas Trolf was involved in a horrible motorcycle which left him with many broken bones and reconstructive surgeries. 13 specialists worked on him, not only save his life, but to help him get back on his feet, literally. After multiple weeks in the hospital, he finds himself with medical expenses well into the high hundreds of thousands of dollars. The kicker was that the accident (a lady pulled out in front of him) was that it happened just days before he was to sign a insurance plan with his new employer.

If you would like to help, there's a Paypal account set up to go directly towards my medical bills. If you sign into paypal.com, just send the funds to andreasrelieffund@gmail.com, but make sure that you send the money as a gift and not as a payment. Any help would be much appreciated.

This Friday, Sept 7th (6-9pm), FFDG will be hosting a benefit show for our friend and long time contributor turned writer for the forthcoming cartoon for Nickelodeon, Sanjay and Craig, Andreas Trolf who was involved in a horrible motorcycle accident a few months back- almost completely severed foot, broken ribs, nose, facial bones plus many other broken bits and scraped body parts.

Andreas Trolf was just 2 days from receiving his health insurance at the time of the accident... All works sold from the show will go to help cover his incredible health care costs from having to spend weeks in the hospital receiving reconstructive surgeries.

Besides the beer treats, we'll have donated works by Jeremy Fish, Jay Howell, Mel Kadel, Ferris Plock, and many others. We'll also have tattoo time with the great Henry Lewis which will be raffled off along with many other great surprises.

Glint
Henry Gunderson & Eric Shaw
Opening: Friday, Sept 14th (7–10pm)
@FFDG

Preview inquires, email: info(at)ffdg.net

San Francisco, CA -- FFDG is pleased to present San Francisco based Henry Gunderson and Brooklyn based Eric Shaw in the impressive two person show, "Glint" featuring 15 new paintings from the two accomplished artists. This will be Gunderson's third show and Shaw's first centerpiece show with FFDG. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, Sept 14th (7-10pm). Both artists will be present. Beer and wine will be available.

Eric Shaw and Henry Gunderson are two young artists walking the contentious middle ground between a tried and trusted geometric abstraction and a newly forming breed of representational surrealism. Shaw's work, hopping between abstraction figurative narratives and unabashed op-art patterning, is a refreshing reminder of the fertile and ever-growing common ground between the worlds of independent music and professional art. Gunderson's newest work is a renewed showcase of his ability to embrace painterly two-dimensionality while remaining fully engaged in an image's potential as a window-space to be entered and explored. Both artist's work share an obtuse unearthly charm as a common language, and their work promises to have an energetic and productive conversation in their upcoming exhibition. -Tom Betthauser, 2012

Henry Gunderson (b.1990) is a recent graduate of The San Francisco Art Institute and has shown locally at FFDG, The Luggage Store, White Walls, and 111 Minna and his first curated show “Water McBeer Extravaganza” ran at Ever Gold in 2011. He's also shown works at Nudashank Baltimore, Breeze Block Gallery Portland, Show N Tell Toronto, and Mark Murphy San Diego.

Eric Shaw (b.1983), self taught artist, lives and works in Brooklyn and has shown works at Space 1026 Philadelphia, Park Life San Francisco, Yes Gallery Brooklyn, Pen to Paper Berlin, Double Break San Diego.

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

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

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.

Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.

A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the citys shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesnt end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.


John Felix Arnold @BRIC House, Brooklyn

In the year or so that I've known Felix, almost every one of his shows has had a live musical element and it seems perfect that he would be included in a show called Art Into Music. He commandeered the corner of the gallery to create an installation that houses not only his drawing, but also an entire drum kit, amps and a dude playing a guitar. The warm wood paneling stands out in contrast to the matte grey boom-box tower and the muted wall of album covers and looks like a beacon calling to the crowd saying "this is what you shoud be looking at." However, it's not in a "look at me" attention-starved desperation, more like a welcoming invitation into his world.
