Ernest Doty at Sticks + Stones Gallery December 2nd, 2011 - December 2nd, 2011
Posted 1/13/12

Though the recent showing of Ernest Doty seemed to correlate with the end of the occupy movement here in Oakland, I, like my fellow art patrons, was kind of hoping that Doty's art would stand on it's own-without the need to justify the art with the movement. It seemed, however, that because Doty was so involved and distracted with the movement that it inhibited the material he showed. That is not to say that the pieces he selected were half-assed, they were simply lacking: lacking in the quantity... [more]

Do you remember that feeling of being five years old and your mom told you to go play so you’re running around in the backyard and to the adults drinking brandy in the kitchen it just looks like What is that kid DOING?, but in your world you’re hunting dragons and wresting jungle cats and having tea with a T-Rex? Or that time in high school you dropped acid and saw some of the coolest shit you’ve ever seen? Well combine those two and it might come close to the feeling of walking into World of Henna... [more]

Swordofdamocles John Yoyogi Fortes at SFMOMA Caffé Museo by Melissa Wyss  
John Yoyogi Fortes at Caffé Museo at SFMOMA May 21st, 2009 - June 30th, 2009
Posted 6/25/09

Gestural, textured and asymmetrical, John Yoyogi Fortes' show at the SFMOMA Caffé Museo is a punk rock alternative to the American modernist legends Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams currently showing upstairs.  While O'Keeffe's and Adams' work reflects the beauty of the outside world, Fortes' psychological landscapes strive to illustrate complexity of the self.  His canvases are layered with impulsive colors, patterns and shapes which accumulate to both expose and conceal.  Collaged images, often hu...

(Author's note: The following is an excerpt from a longer piece on my blog, Arteaser)   Next, I went across the street to HangART, where works by David Fullarton were on display in the rear gallery: The show, called "Once Again I Fail To Live Up To My Advance Publicity," will be up through the month of April: In addition to some larger collage canvases, many of Fullarton's pieces used non-traditional materials.

Save the Bulb!  
12/28/08 Posted 12/28/08

Submitted by Montgomery Rene of the SF Artslant Community: The Albany Waterfront is located on the eastern edge of the San Francisco Bay, encompassing approximately 160 acres of land between Highway I-80 and the bay. The Albany Bulb is the spot of land thriving at the furthermost West peak of this 160 acres.     This "Bulb" (simply named for its shoreline's shape) was born of dumping in the 1950's. The land growth of this dumping stopped in the mid 1980's (reports have ranged from 1983-1986). Since dumping was halted, wild growth and life ha... [more]
