Jim Houser and Richard Colman’s “Awful Mountain” (previewed) opened last night at White Walls in SF. As usual, Houser’s installations complemented his paintings perfectly. If only collectors could have him go to their houses and setup the pieces they own in a similar fashion. Colman had some large pieces that were quite eyecatching.Â His work has some similarities to Dalek (we hear they are long-time friends with their first show in the scene being a two-person show at Merry Karnowsky years back) but seems more […]

Scott Belcastro’s newest display of work will be shown on November 8th at the Cerasoli:Lebasse gallery as part of a two-person show with Nate Frizzell (previewed). He gave us a little insight on the show. “The theme of the show is based on the idea of being lost in the thicket or the forest….while searching for a home for your beliefs or feelings. I like the fact that I can bring someone into my feelings and they can look around for awhile, it’s not easy […]
The preview images for Kukula’s show “Princess Express” (previously teased) which opens on November 8th at Copronason are now online.Â You really get a feeling that her work has matured as you look through her paintings.Â Her details, “story-telling,” and composition really look to have taken a step up while maintining some of the edginess from before (bleeding hearts, injured animals, scratch marks, suggestive outfits). Â See for yourself after the jump.

With the election just a few days away, one would think that Ron Englishâ€™s latest exhibition “The Secret History of KISS” would revolve around his famous Abraham Obama character, but not quite so. The master Pop Surrealist is up to his old tricks again, this flexing his other muscles as he brings back his signature “KISS” images painted flawlessly in the form of classic renaissance-esque oils. The images from this show clearly shows that Ron’s technical skills rival his stupendous imagination and wit! There will […]
