Luke Chueh will be back in March with his first solo show for 2009 at Corey Helford Gallery.Â His show entitled “From Light Cometh Darkness” will feature over 20 new paintings and drawings that will no doubt include some of his bears in various dark, comical, depressing, or satirical situations.Â His friend Thomas Han will be showing concurrently in Corey Helford’s loft area.

Audrey Kawasaki will be opening a show in Australia at Outre Gallery on February 13th. This will mainly be an exhibition of sold out prints (APs) with only one new original (in progress seen above). There will also be a new print scheduled for released as well. For our readers down under who want more of Audrey, look for a larger show in 2010 that should presumably include more originals. Discuss show here. Discuss Audrey Kawasaki here.
As previously mentioned, Black Rat Press exhibited at the London Art Fair where they showed works by Swoon, Matt Small, Lucas Price, Asha Zero, Brian Adam Douglas, D*Face and Nick Walker.Â As expected, Walker’s print sold out, but there were actually some pretty good originals available.Â In particular, Swoon’s and Matt Small’s pieces were quite strong.Â Take a look after the jump.
Andrew Schoultz and AJ Fosik opened up a pretty amazing show full of complex installations last weekend at Space 1026 in Philadelphia. We have never really envisioned their work interacting but the kinetic energy of Schoultz’s frenzied imagery blends nicely with the sculpts of Fosik’s beasts and folklore – perhaps it’s the complementary color palettes. Not to mention, the cryptic letterings of Fosik combines with Schoultz’s penchant for incorporating the symbolism of U.S. currency to form a body of work that hints of conspiracies and […]
As previously mentioned in passing, Greg “Craola” Simkins is opening his show “Seeing Things” on February 5th at Fifty24SF concurrently with Anthony Lister. Judging from the imagery from this showcard (clouds of goo, pedestals, stark black backgrounds, etc.), he is continuing and expanding on the themes of his two successful sold out shows last year “It Wanders East” and “It Wanders West.” Look for more details here as the show draws nearer. Discuss this show here. Discuss Craola here.
Audrey Kawasaki posted up a collage of images this morning on her japanese blog and we couldn’t help but notice another laser cut piece (NFS) in the upper right-hand corner.Â We first saw her use this technique with a piece from “The Drawing Room” show and then another piece from the “Clowns!” show.Â From what we hear, she owns a laser cutting machine…Â so look for more of these delightful pieces in the future. Take a look at the ones she has done so far […]
The first great group show of 2009 went down last weekend at White Walls SF. Usually group shows are headlined by a few established artists and a bunch of lesser knowns, but “Family First” (previewed) featured a large and diverse group of great artists like Ian Francis, Andrew Schoultz, Richard Colman, Sylvia Ji, Shepard Fairey, Shawn Barber, Jim Houser, Mike Giant, Adam Flores, and AJ Fosik just to name a few… Be sure you stop by for a look if you haven’t already…you don’t see […]
Here is a little teaser painting called “Push” from Tin’s upcoming show at Black Maria Gallery on February 7th.Â Five lucky collectors will be purchasing five deluxe print sets from the show featuring an 1 original 8×10 detailed drawing (pastel on paper),Â 3 prints on the deckled edge paper, and another original drawing that will be painted directly on the box top. Each print set will be housed in a custom made solid wood box that is hand finished and has a sliding top.Â There […]
Oakland artist Deth P. Sun had his first solo show in his hometown since 2002 yesterday entitled “This Too Shall Pass” at the Rowan Morrison Gallery. Especially eye catching was the wall of small paintings carefully fitted together seen above. The exhibition closes on February 14th with the release of his first published book, â€œI See It All.” The 64-page book replicates the sequence, size and paper-weight of one of Sunâ€™s moleskin journals. Openings pics after the jump.
As anticipated, it was announced that Josh Keyes’ next print will be of his piece from Art Basel Week, “The Call I.”Â As demand for his work has skyrocketed, it has been increasingly harder for collectors to get their hands on his prints, let alone his originals. Well, here is a chance for a “easy” purchase hopefully as this will be the large edition release for the year with a sign & numbered run of 750. These will be an archival giclee on embossed hahnemuhle […]
