20160407161942-drunk_kiss Review - Josephine Taylor : Teenagers are Beautiful  
Josephine Taylor at Catharine Clark Gallery April 23rd - May 28th
Posted 5/22/16

Currently on show at the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco is "Teenager are Beautiful' a completely none ironic title for a rigorous and subtly sensational exhibition by San Francisco based artist Josephine Taylor. Within the gallery is a series of artworks demonstrating the most recent manifestation of a drawing practise that Taylor has devotedly explored since her MA at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1992. In contrast to her previous large scale ink drawings where Taylor would us... [more]

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]

30 Master Class in painting, but Surreal?  
Todd Schorr at San Jose Museum of Art June 20th, 2009 - September 16th, 2009
Posted 8/14/09

The Todd Schorr show at the San Jose Museum of Art is an assault. The artist grabs you and wrings you out, then you stagger away, dazed. Mr. Schorr is important, a fact nicely recognized by the SJMA in this very large solo show, which gathers paintings from a myriad of collections, such as that of Leonardo DeCaprio. This retrospective features works as far back as the mid-80s, I seem to recall, with a brief stop in the early 1990s with some mid-size pieces, before dashing forward at breakneck spe... [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...

Bravo. [more]
