Posted 4/13/12

West Coast Art Assemblage Show, May 1-31 Ukiah, CA As the art form of assemblage continues to captivate viewers and allure perspective designers, the discussion of art and meaning is alive and well under this seemingly random collection of parts and objects. During the month of May, seven influential artists, both established and newly discovered, will be represented at Ukiah’s innovative and alluring Beat Gallery on Perkins Street. This collection of recent works by Chris Bales,... [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 He... [more]

My Favorite Works at De Young Museum, San Francisco Today, I visited De Young Museum in San Francisco for the King Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of Pharaohs exhibit. It was a fantastic show, despite the fact that the most spectacular beautifully inlaid gold mask of the young king, who died at the age of 19, was not included in the current exhibit of these artifacts. Some old timers had the luck of viewing it when the show came to San Francisco decades ago. I cannot say that I was cheated out o... [more]

30 Master Class in painting, but Surreal?  
by
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]

Amory_s Bite-sized Brett Amory Show at FFDG

Brett Amory at Fecal Face Dot Gallery June 17th, 2009 - June 20th, 2009
Posted 6/21/09

(Author's note: The following is excerpted from a longer post on my blog, Arteaser) We headed over to Fecal Face Dot Gallery (FFDG) for the latest installment of their "In-N-Out" series, which featured Brett Amory: I really enjoyed a new series of small paintings (above) based on a dream: Amory also had a couple of new pieces from the "Waiting" series up: Sadly, the show was only up for four days and is already down. As the name implies, the "In-N-Out" series are week long shows with openings on Thursdays. Amory (below right) was in attendance ta... [more]

Dana-harel_eagle_lg We are all animals: Dana Harel at Frey Norris  
by
Dana Harel at Gallery Wendi Norris April 2nd, 2009 - May 3rd, 2009
Posted 4/7/09

(Author's note: This is an excerpt of a longer post on my blog, Arteaser)   For my last stop of the night, I went to Frey Norris Gallery, which was featuring Dana Harel's series, "Kin": For someone who has seen images of this series, it was great to see the life-size scale to which Ms. Harel draws her hand animals (below): What these pictures do not capture well is the fine detail of subtle textural mutations to the subject hand's skin, which are at once anatomically correct for the implied animal and incorrect for the human model: The show is up until May 3 in the downstairs...

by
Dana Harel at Gallery Wendi Norris April 2nd, 2009 - May 3rd, 2009
Posted 3/17/09

Born in Tel Aviv, Dana Harel observed her father and grandparents paint in their leisure time. Pursuing art only as a hobby, her family members had developed meticulous technique, but did not attempt new content, which shaped her early experiences with art: "I took some art classes, but I was never pushed to think for myself. It was kind of about learning techniques or painting or looking at other art or landscapes and painting what you see" The practically-minded Harel studied architecture at... [more]
