Openings: Remio – “Man in Transition” @ Guerrero Gallery

San Francisco’s Guerrero Gallery recently hosted a fresh new exhibition from Remio. Entitled Man In Transition, this new body of work (previewed) was a reminder of how fun art can be both indoors and out. Utilizing surfboards, hand cranked zines, installations and a variety of graff techniques, Remio showed his talents and was not shy about taking chances. From precise pen and ink drawings to loose and abstract faces that convey the emotion and mood at the moment of creation, Remio took on the task of filling […]

Setup: Remio & Tim Diet @ Guerrero Gallery

AM recently stopped by San Francisco to visit Guerrero Gallery and caught the setup by Remio & Tim Diet as they prepared for their opening this Saturday. First up is Remio, known as a great writer around the world (part of both Barry McGee’s DFW/THR and Os Gemeos’ VLOK crew), bringing a impactful show entitled Man In Transition. Moving his street roots into the gallery realm, we enjoyed his “cluster faces” where he painted faces based on his graff style. At face value, it may look simple, but upon closer inspection the colors & textures […]

Openings: AJ Fosik – “Lamplighter to the Promised Land” @ Guerrero Gallery

Last weekend, AM stopped by San Francisco’s Guerrero Gallery to check out opening of Lamplighter to the Promised Land that features AJ Fosik’s latest wooden sculptures. We visited Fosik a few weeks back at his Portland studio while he was preparing for the show (which can be viewed here). With this exhibition, he created sculptures to portray creatures in a glorified manner that challenges the concept of belief as a virtue – in other words, they are trippy/bad-ass beasts. Check out more photos from the […]

Studio Visits: AJ Fosik

AJ Fosik’s sculptural artworks almost need no introduction. In a world where it is increasingly difficult to have a true individual voice as an artist, Fosik’s work has an original aesthetic honed over the years from his roots in graffiti, street art and two-dimensional drawing. AJ decided that his imagery would be better represented in three dimensions around seven years ago, and has continued to immerse himself in the medium of handcrafted woodwork for his iconography inspired art ever since. Using modern woodworking techniques (he doesn’t consider himself […]

Teasers: Hilary Pecis & Erin M. Riley – “Consensus” & “Forgotten in a File” @ Guerrero Gallery

This weekend, the Guerrero Gallery gallery will feature exhibitions from both Hilary Pecis and Erin M. Riley. Entitled Consensus, Pecis takes over 100 unaltered image files sourced from Google images to create her artistic compositions. Erin M. Riley presents a new body of work called Forgotten in a File featuring her signature woven tapestries exploring the lives of the internet generation with imagery depicting social media interaction and addiction. More preview images after the jump…

Preview: Alex Lukas @ Guerrero Gallery

Alex Lukas continues to delight us here at AM with each series of his distressed cityscapes, and judging by the work in his upcoming untitled solo exhibition at San Francisco’s Guerrero Gallery, he continues to go from strength to strength. Lukas’ representations of global mortality are realised in a series of paintings showing a graffiti’d and desolate landscape in a post-human / post apocalyptic context. It is his re-appropriated book pages and commercial posters that really shine for us though. Culling whole page images from […]
Kevin Cyr @ White Walls SF

Highlights: ArtPadSF, San Francisco

San Francisco, last weekend, hosted a slew of fine art fairs around the city. One noteworthy fair was the inaugural edition of ArtPadSF (held at the legendary Phoenix Hotel in the Tenderloin), which focused mainly on Bay Area galleries that feature contemporary and emerging art. Each room of the hotel featured a different gallery’s display and the lounge played host to panel discussions on art. Some of the galleries that had a room at the fair included: White Walls, Gallery Anno Domani, 111 Minna, Spoke […]

Installation: Ryan Travis Christian – “Sad Sacks” @ Guerrero Gallery

Tonight, May 12th, Ryan Travis Christian returns to Guerrero Gallery for the next installment of his works. In what looks like a continuation of works from his previous show last year at GG, Ryan moves to the main room with his classic use of blacks, whites and everything in between. This time, he expands his crazy visual patterns and distinct subject matter to include sex, parties, dreams and more. Look for a large but intricate multi-media installation that should be memorable to behold. Check it […]

Previews / Setup: Ryan Wallace & Hilary Pecis @ Guerrero Gallery

Get ready for the latest exhibition to hit SF’s Guerrero Gallery this Saturday. First is Ryan Wallace’s oddly titled (((Ω.))) show. The New York artist brings his signature works where the pieces literally curl off the canvas due to its unique Mylar layering. There will also be site specific works that utilize the natural lighting of the gallery featuring a series of light reflective paintings. In the project space, Hilary Pecis displays her digital landscape collages created from various Internet found images entitled Half Truths […]
