Openings: Jeremiah Jenkins – “Everything Must Go” @ Hashimoto Contemporary

Earlier this month, Hashimoto Contemporary opened a solo show from Jeremiah Jenkins entitled Everything Must Go. The new body of work includes sculptural works from the local artist that display his signature wit and novel technique of dismantling an item’s original form and recreating it in a way to make the viewer think. The most delightful pieces come from his Trophy series where the ubiquitous golden figures seen on top of the common prizes appear to have taken a lives of their own.

Upcoming: Erin M. Riley – “Simple” @ Hashimoto Contemporary

Coming up on March 4th, Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco will be hosting a solo show from Erin M. Riley (interviewed) featuring a set of her new weavings. Entitled Simple, the fresh body of work sees the Brooklyn-based artist continue pushing the boundaries of fabric art with her portrayal of nude selfies, drug paraphernalia, car wrecks, porn screenshots, domestic violence, and other nontraditional subject matter for the medium. Although oftentimes provocative, Riley’s work is at the same time deeply personal and honest as she draws inspiration from life experiences and […]

Tonight (February 3rd) in San Francisco, Modern Eden will be unveiling a new body of work from Sarah Joncas entitled Surburban Surreal. Consisting of 17 new drawings and paintings from the Toronto-based painter, the new exhibition is her way of exploring the feeling we get that something’s is just not right or a little off about a situation or setting.

Openings: 1010 – “Eversion” @ Hashimoto Contemporary

Last weekend, Hashimoto Contemporary welcomed in the Hamburg-based 1010 for a solo showing at their San Francisco space entitled Eversion. Mirroring his aesthetic on the streets, the German artist created a series of colorful portals, formed with graduated layers of paint on acrylic glass and mounted on aluminum dibond. When seen in public, 1010’s work has a powerful illusory effect, making the viewer see a large crevice or hole on the side of a building. This same effect, to a lesser extent, can be experienced from his gallery pieces […]

Showing: RETNA x SF Opera – “Aida”

After working with the Legion of Honor on an Egyptian exhibition (covered), RETNA’s (featured) recently took the role of the artistic designer for another Bay Area institution, the SF Opera. Again like with the exhibition, the choice of the infamous Los Angeles graffiti writer’s imagery as the backdrop was a bold but interesting decision as his script takes influence from hieroglyphics which matches up well with the current production of Aida, Verdi’s famous opera set in Egypt. Take a look at the stunning visuals as well as video interview […]

Upcoming: “Hindsight” @ Modern Eden

On November 5th, Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco will open Hindsight, a four person show from Josh Keyes (seen above), Sandra Yagi, Ahren Hertel, and Ellen Jewett. Here’s what curator Bradley Platz had to say about the exhibition – “There is a somewhat of a post-apocalyptic environmental hindsight, running through each of these four artist’s works. It is this perspective that I looked for when selecting the artists, and which ultimately became just the starting point for a larger dialogue. The exhibition deals with heavy issues […]

Previews: 1010 – “Eversion” @ Hashimoto Contemporary

Following up on last year’s exhibition (covered) at Hashimoto Contemporary will be another solo from 1010 at the San Francisco gallery starting November 3rd. Eversion continues the Hamburg-based artist’s series of portals, echoing the large-scale works he paints on the streets. The pieces utilizing color theory and perspective are painted on layers of acrylic glass and mounted on aluminum dibond, a technique that augments the illusory effect. Discuss 1010 here.
