Jim Houser @LeBasse Projects in Culver City
    Tuesday, 20 March 2012 /// Written by Michael C. Hsiung

Last Friday, March 10th Space 1026 founder Jim Houser (Philadelphia) new solo show, "As Quiet As It's Kept," opened at LeBasse Project's Culver City space.

Houser's show in Los Angeles featured new canvas paintings, mixed media installations as well as his signature panel/paintings. Houser has spent a week putting together his beautifully pieced installations from creating the music playing out of his hand-crafted cabinet speakers to birdhouses and wooden tables. In addition to his installation, Houser's new paintings featured some collaged elements –paper cutouts and shapes–which really can only be seen in person. "As Quiet As It's Kept" opened March 10th and runs through April 7th at LeBasse Projects in Culver City.

You should buy it dude.

Lots of Houser's panel paintings have text and a story behind them.

Another wall by Houser. Really loved the simplicity and colors of this one.

Just finished my first new piece since taking off for almost 6 months to travel and be a bum. It's for a tribute show at BeepBeep Gallery in ATL.

Josh Peters Interview
    Thursday, 08 December 2011 /// Written by Ryan Christian

Josh Peters is a La based painter/ curator/ cool guy/ I chatted with him recently about his work, here it is. -Ryan Travis Christian

So Josh, tell me a little bit about yourself.....

I'm from Massachusetts.. moved to NYC after grad school at Rutgers, spent 10 years there.... about half of which was spent art-making and half playing in a band. It got to the point in NYC where I was spending too much time working to support myself and not enough painting...so I moved up to Northampton, MA where I was able to afford to take a couple of years just getting back into it. In 2007 I taught painting for a semester at an art college in Oslo, Norway and then did a 3-month residency in Los Angeles, wanting to be back amongst a larger group of artists and a more active gallery scene. The residency was sort of to test the water in LA, and I loved it so ended up moving out here.. where I've lived for two years now... teaching and making my work.

So let's get down to business. Tell me a bit about the characters and places in your pieces, they seem utopic, but with a underlying darkness. It also feels like the work is just out of reach from narrative...

The source material for the paintings are film stills... usually older ones where the sunspots and grain reference a previous era. In the newest work, the proportions of the canvas actually mirrors that of a widescreen cinema format. I choose the frames that strike an emotional chord with me, hoping that they will also resonate with viewers. So it's really done intuitively, without much thought to 'theme' but there are obviously common threads... groups of people isolated in nature and an ambiguity in terms of their identity and what exactly is taking place, as you pointed out in your question. So I would agree with that and say that it's intentional, as it hopefully creates a kind of compelling mystery and draws viewers in.

I should also say that the pieces that I'm working on now might well be the last that come out of this process; the process of finding a single, pre-existing image and translating it into paint.

I view these paintings as a kind of pop art because of this; they are pre-existing images in the culture, though of course not as recognizable as product packaging or celebrities.

The original image is also going through more of a transformation because the use of the materials is painterly and not deadpan, as in pop art, but just the same, I feel that with these paintings, once the frame has been selected, the die is cast and the work is half done... I'm hoping to start working more interpretively, more from the imagination, with chance and chaos coming into it more. I want to push beyond the nostalgia of these paintings.

Charles Martin for 11.11.11
    Wednesday, 30 November 2011 /// 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.

Charles Martin is now showing in the group show 11.11.11 running through Dec 17th at San Francisco's FFDG.

Age? Location? Website?

Twenty, New York City, I do not have a website.

Describe your work a little bit.

The things I make are a reflection of my ideas, coupled with a strong desire to make them tangible.

Our world is on my brain a lot; I like to think that if I'm conscious of what's going on that it will naturally filter into my work.

Most of my art is an investigation, sometimes about very specific content, and other work may strictly be about the medium.

I make work that references the past, and at the same time I like to read my imagery as futuristic. When I look at my paintings the first thing that comes to mind is making them, so in this way each becomes a mirror of the time in which they are created.

In a lot of my pictures I draw outer space, I feel that there is a strong connection between the universe and the mind. Both infinite in possibility and mass, I enjoy drawing from outside of the atmosphere because it allows me to explore.

Limitations exist with drawing from land, more recently I've been trying to make stuff that combines unbounded space with our flat world. Picture compositions that display an earth embodying characteristics of space, and then imagine the opposite.

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

A lot of hip hop, Jazz, Instrumentals, Nas Illmatic!

Favorite medium's to work within?

Printing, Painting, Drawing, Photo, Sculpture, Sound, Writing, Skating.

Age? Location? Website? And who do you think you are?

24, A West-coaster living in Montreal, Quebec, NathanAlexisBrown.com, No-Valleys

Romulus and Remus": Rice paper overlay, ink and acrylic, on paper, 4ft x 4ft, 2011.

Describe your work a little bit.

My work depicts scenes from a dripping, glowing, shifting world were a cast of delinquent characters struggle to unearth a greater understanding of my personal mythology. Springing from past, present and future the narratives of my work are entangled and multilayered, destruction and creation often become indistinguishable as the characters constantly chase their goals in circles: their quest for personal clarity constantly unfulfilled.

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

70’s punk, 80’s hardcore, weird rock n’ roll, random originals.

Fireside Installation (aka: "Smoke-Spirit") : Paint, weat-paste, and digital print, 2011.

"Hands-Off Houdini!": Rice paper overlay, ink and acrylic, on paper, 22in x 22in, 2011.

Favorite mediums to work within?

Paper: painted, inked, printed, cut, glued, sewn, you can make anything with that stuff!

Joyce Ho - Mini Interview
    Tuesday, 15 November 2011 /// Written by Kid Yellow

Who are you and what do you?

I am an interdisciplinary artist with an emphasis in painting, sculpture and theater.

Location? Age? Education? Website?

I moved to the United States from Taiwan when I was 14. This experience of being transplanted from my home, family, and culture had a huge impact on me and my works. After receiving my M.A. in studio arts from University of Iowa, I went back to Taiwan for my solo exhibition and a few set design projects. I plan to move back to the states in 2012.

www.joycehostudio.com, www.joyceho-art.blogspot.com

How would you describe your work to someone?

The images that I paint all have some disturbing quality, whether it's the angle of the character's head or the awkwardness of the distorted bodies. But in order to complicate these unsettling images, I use strong yellow hues to create a warm overall lighting that emanates throughout the entire space. I like this idea of “peaceful violence,” of seducing the viewer with bright colours, while simultaneously confronting them with the damaged characters.

Describe your process for creating new work.

I normally spend a few months developing a series of images and then over the course of an evening take a number of photographs and experiment with different compositions and lighting. For my works in my house, I usually choose rooms with more angular architecture and multiple lighting sources. There is something cold and inhuman about many of the new high rise apartments in Taipei, with their cold, reflective marble floors, fluorescent lights, and long corridors. These apartments seem more like conference rooms or hotels.

Working routine? Music? Time of day?

I usually work at night. ( late, late night ). I like listening to music when I work, but I always forget to turn it on.

Ryan Bubnis for 11.11.11
    Wednesday, 09 November 2011 /// Written by Van Edwards

We're going to featuring some mini interviews with artists participating in the group show 11.11.11 opening up at FFDG's temporary gallery space at 248 Clement St @4th Ave in the Inner Richmond on Friday, Nov 11th (6-9pm).

Also opening that same night at FFDG is the solo show, Everything Under the Sun, with San Francisco based Mario Martinez (Mars-1).


Age? Location? Website? And who do you think you are?

35. Portland Oregon. http://www.ryanbubnis.com/ Son, brother, cousin, husband, friend, cat owner, griller, camper, artist dude.

Describe your work a little bit.

Modern folk art inspired by life, love, death, friendship, nature, our struggles and mistakes and the mesmerizing glow of the campfire.

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

Rolling Stones, Starfucker, Timber Timbre, Connan Mockasin, Boards of Canada, Camera Obscura, Club 8, Kool Keith, Blue Cheer, etc. It changes all the time.

Favorite mediums to work within?

Acrylic, ink, reclaimed house paint, old stained paper, found wood chunks, pinecones, papier-mâché.

Dream job other than artist?

Teacher or chef/owner of a restaurant.

When not creating work, you can be found doing...

Hanging out with the wifey, reading, teaching, camping, BBQing, running, walking and playing records in my garage.

How would you describe your work to a stranger who's never seen it?

I make paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and installations. Sometimes I paint figures and sometimes I create these clusters of faces or heads using textures, patterns and line work. The work can be illustrative and sometimes it's completely abstract. They usually nod their head and say, “Oh, ok.” But they usually have no idea what I'm talking about until I show them the work.

Upcoming projects/ shows?

11.11.11 @ Fecal Face & a few other group exhibitions throughout the rest of the year. Super secret magic plans for 2012.

What gives you the right?

Um, I dunno. I just make sure no ones looking and then I just go for it. I'll worry about the consequences later.

Last words?

Trust your gut.

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

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

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

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.
