4/9/10 Posted 4/9/10

(Excerpt from "Ciao, digital. Hello, unpredictable art" by Jesse Hamlin, published in San Francisco Chronicle, April 2010.  Found on http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2010/04/01/DDPM1CLU8I.DTL&type=art)   Plastic cameras are cheap, prone to light leaks and unpredictable. Which is why a lot of photographers are drawn to them in the digital age of pixel counts, precision focus and Photoshop.

Posted 2/5/10

Krowswork The “hyper aliveness,” as my former painting instructor liked to call it, that artists, from time to time, are privileged enough to experience in the pursuit of a vision, rarely survives in the work itself, let alone in the re-contextualization that occurs in the dubious function of the group exhibition.  Perhaps because I was unprepared for the experience, that such caprice occurred during the opening of the group show, “As X Approaches Infinity,” the debut curatorial effort at Krowsw...

Photographer Jon Vidar’s first public exhibition offers an intimate look at this culture that has thrived since the Mesopotamian era but has garnered little consideration in modern times.

The room is beautifully arranged and filled with black and wh... [more]

The land growth of this dumping stopped in the mid 1980's (reports have ranged from 1983-1986). ... [more]
