Currently at Legion in San Francisco, Evah Fan has a series of works on display entitled A Waffle Lot. Curated by Alice Wu, the solo from the Oakland-based artist features gouache paintings on wood panels and paper, new prints, zines, and multiples. Fan’s human or animal subjects are often small when compared to the size of her pieces, which allows them room to wander freely in their environment, often times without standard boundaries. Her eclectic choice of imagery can perhaps be linked to her lifelong addiction to […]
Last month, White Walls Gallery in San Francisco opened a group exhibition entitled Space//Squared. Curated by Sven Davis, the showing was a followup to an event last year in Portland (covered). This time around, participating artists were again asked to contribute artwork in a 10 x 10″ format. Along with pieces from over 100 artists (list seen below), Adam Friedman and Robert Minervini also created a site-specific installation featuring a series of paintings interspersed throughout mural elements. Roster: 2501, Adam Friedman, Adam Weir, Akiko Masker, Alex Lukas, Alicia Dubnyckyj, […]
While in Taiwan for POW! WOW! Taiwan, husband and wife Brendan Monroe and Evah Fan took the opportunity to show together at Shimokitazawa Books. Entitled Black and Night, the exhibition featured a small selection of Monroe’s topographic “Black” ink drawings and Fan’s characters floating among the stars of the “Night” sky. Take a look at more photos below and email Monique Lee: [email protected] if you have interest in adding something to your collection. Photo credit: Sean Marc Lee & the artists.

Earlier this month, the Buddy System Invitational (curated by Sven Davis) opened at the Breeze Block Gallery in Portland. The group exhibition centered on the interesting concept having each of the 22 invited artists bring along a fellow artist to exhibit alongside them with each contributing one 16 x 20″ & one 8 x 8″ artwork. Take a look at some photos from the opening below as well as the list of artists below and their “buddies.” Andrew Schoultz – Gianluca Franzese, Ben Venom – Megan Gorham, Brendan Monroe – Anders Oinonen, […]
Breeze Block Gallery opened their huge group show Wider than a postcard (previewed) alongside the first solo show in their new gallery 2 space – olive47’s bonita bonita (featured) a couple of weeks back to a packed Portland crowd. Over 400 individual works went into the postcard show with 200 artists providing postcard sized works. The work was hung on the walls in grids of 24 cards, each echoing the aspect ratio of the individual works themselves as each work was 6×4 inches. The variance of work encompassed photography […]
On the back of his Space//Form group exhibition last year (covered), Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis is working with Breeze Block Gallery in Portland again on another huge group event entitled Wider than a postcard. With over 200 artists and 400 individual works, this exhibition looks to be both bigger than the previous event and also smaller at the same time as all of the artworks are postcard sized at 6×4 inches. Each artist is either making work on a found / owned postcard and adapting / adding […]
Last Friday evening, Park Life in San Francisco presented Evah Fan’s latest colorful, mysterious and minimalistic artworks (previewed). For this show, she veered slightly away from her usually microscopic gouache paintings and incorporated blocks of colors and figures to depict what might happen in everyday indoor scenarios from the point of view of a person peering through a window. Also included in the exhibition is a series of mini sculptures that contrast with the paintings and appear to poke out towards the viewer from the […]
This Friday, August 31st, following on the heels of the Andrew Schoultz showing, Evah Fan will be opening a new show at Park Life in San Francisco. The Bay Area-based artist will be presenting a selection of gouache paintings entitled What Have You featuring her colorful and often minimalistic imagery. Look for an increase in her usual size of works as well as the incorporation of collaged elements in this new body of work.
The Arrested Motion crew will be flying in to Hong Kong tomorrow as our first curatorial project, East West Connect, opens up at the Above Second Gallery on Friday night. In a couple days, as we install the show, we’ll be able to show you a complete preview, but for now, take a look at this piece from Luke Chueh (interviewed). For this painting, EVERYBODY LOVES PANDA (YELLOW), you can see that Luke’s signature sad bear character is trying to blend in with his new […]
