FFDG is pleased to present loc al artist duo KeFe or Kelly Tunstall \;and Ferris Plock in their third solo show with the gallery entitled &ldquo\;Inside Voices&rdquo\; \;inc luding paintings\, drawings\, and an installation. An opening reception is scheduled for \;Friday\, April 24th (6-9pm). The artists will be presen t. \;

\n

"Inside Voices" will featur e a series of new paintings by Tunstall and Plock\, as well as \;large collaborative works. You'll see a lot of what the pair does best: big\, pat tern filled\, \;colorful fun with a twist. Rather than seeing the exhib ition as a movie or short cartoon \;and externally illuminating it\, as they \;have worked previously\, the artists have looked \;inside f or their storytelling source material.

\n

In particular\, Tunstall has used this body of work to take exhaustive st ock of her current \;inspiration in order to extend her personal mythol ogy\, allowing a study in how her \;processes move from the internal to the external. Returning to familiar media: like pen \;and ink drawings on tissue paper\, has allowed the work to come from a certain amount \ ;of muscle memory.

\n

As the parents of two young boys\, both Tunstall and Plock are aware of the restrictions  \;placed upon children and parents alike. According to Tunstall\, they enco urage joy\, \;exploration\, openness\, and color in their kids and carr y these principles into their \;practices\, and are inspired\, in turn\ , by the passions of the boys.

\n

Being parents\, the duo has a certain familiarity with the term &ldquo\;Inside Vo ices.&rdquo\; However\, \;instead of considering the term in its abilit y to confine expression (or simply part of \;being a good neighbor on S unday morning at 7 am)\, they re-imagine the term as less a \;restricti ng plea of quiet and calm\, but rather\, the inside voice that we all hear every day \;but don&rsquo\;t necessarily share with anyone else.

\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">Our inside voices are the ones that make us want to waterslide all the way to the \;grocery store while eating piz za and drinking grape soda. Inside voices can be \;confrontational\, or so multiple that it is impossible to concentrate on just one as it \;b ounces back and forth. But no matter their confusion\, inside voices allow us all to look \;inside ourselves for creative inspiration. This exhibi tion exemplifies the inner workingsof two influential San Francisco creativ es.

\n

Ferris Plock and Kelly Tunstall a re San Francisco-based artists who live in San \;Francisco with sons Br ixton and Aengus.

\n

Through a variety o f mediums including acrylic\, watercolor\, spray paint\, ink\, gold or  \;silver leaf and collage\, Tunstall and Plock create detailed works\, ofte n character-based \;paintings\, on wood panels. In San Francisco\, the pair&rsquo\;s large scale collaborative \;exhibitions have been showcas ed at The Shooting Gallery/White Walls\, FFDG and 111 \;Minna\, and the two have frequently shown with Park Life.

\n

Additionally\, both have been involved in solo and group exhibitions& nbsp\;in Tokyo\, San \;Francisco\, Los Angeles and New York\, and have participated in exhibitions in London\, \;Paris\, and Miami. \;Thei r work is featured in San Francisco&rsquo\;s Michelin-starred restaurant&nb sp\;SPQR and at hotel Alcazar and restaurant Cheeky's\, located in Palm Spr ings.

\n

Plock brings a dedicated focus to his work\, paired with a wild sense of originality\, which \;combine s contemporary pop culture with the aesthetic of Japanese ukiyo-e \;woo dblocks. Plock&rsquo\;s work is currently on view in &ldquo\;Samurai!&rdquo \; at the Worcester Art \;Museum\, Massachusetts. Plock also served as the 2010 SF Recology Artist in \;Resident\, and has created illustratio ns for many high-profile clients. \;

\n

Kelly Tunstall was born in 1979 and received her BA from California Col lege of the Arts \;and Crafts in 2002. In stylized figural works\, Tuns tall deals with the contrast between a \;compositional\, portrait-like formality and a more casual revelation of method. Her work \;is on perm anent view in Bay Area restaurants A16\, A16 Rockridge and Bar Crudo.

Naomie Kremer: Age of Entanglement

\n

May 31 &ndash\; September 19\, 2015

\n

Age of En tanglement will include video\, hybrid paintings and hybrid sculptures . Combining large-scale\, intensely colored abstract paintings with video p rojections\, Kremer creates hybrids that blur the distinction between the t wo mediums and alter the physical relationship one normally has to painting . A consistent underlying principle in Kremer&rsquo\;s work has been a disr uption of the painted surface. In 2000\, Kremer began experimenting with vi deo in order to explore the element of time in her work. She began by anima ting some texts she'd written\, and continued with animating some of her fi nished paintings. In 2008 she started to explore projecting video onto her paintings. By layering the paintings with moving images\, she has been able to incorporate the time component in an immediate way.

\n

Kremer was born in Tel Aviv\, Israel and currently lives and works in the Bay Area. Sh e earned her MFA from California College of the Arts\, and an MA in Art His tory from Sussex University in Brighton\, England. Her work has been exhibi ted internationally and is found in museum collections including the Whitne y Museum of American Art\, Brooklyn Museum\, Hammer Museum\, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art\, and Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco\, Achenbach F oundation for Graphic Arts.

\n

On Thursday\, June 11\, at 7pm\ , Naomie Kremer will give a talk about her work as part of the ICA &rsquo\;s Talking Art education program. Admission is free.

The Octo pus Game

\n

I can&rsquo\;t help but &ldquo\;succumb to the enamor ed\, oceanic maw&rdquo\; of these poems. I love their horror and humility\, their playfulness. Implicating me in the mysterious beauty of the universe \, Nicky Beer connects the reader to the octopus\, connects the octopus to the reader\, and connects us all to her poems&rsquo\; surprising subjects. Drawing insights from least predictable places\, these poems are &ldquo\;a lesson in how ardor ignites not in unlikeness\, but unlikelihood.&rdquo\;\n

&ldquo\;I am a professional painter working the the Phil adelphia area. Over the years my work has progressed along a variety of pat hs\, most recently including a series of skull like creatures mixed with th e various imaginary period costumes and locales. Originally trained as a de signer at the Russian State Academy of Art and Design in St. Petersburg Rus sia. Most of my technique is self-taught as I&rsquo\;ve moved on to work in a surrealistic and fantastic imagery that alludes to a broader narrative c ontext. I try not to spell too much out for the view and hope the images I create serve as a touchstone for people&rsquo\;s respective imaginations. I &rsquo\;ve shown in a variety of galleries along the East coast of the Unit ed States ad have done illustrations for clients as diverse as Heavy Metal and Lenox Collectibles.&rdquo\;

My process starts with ideas being sketched in some detail and then use d as a guide for each painting. I&rsquo\;m influenced by many things includ ing my discomfort within society\, distrust of people in power\, superstiti on and religion\, and personal experiences.

Erich J. Moffitt is an American painter\, born in 1982\, in the South ern United States.
From age three onward\, he traveled Europe with his family and spent his formative childhood years as an expatriate in the hea rt of Austria\, where he learned to embrace multicultural influences from e ither side of the Atlantic and nurtured what would become a lifelong passio n for art.
Having been simultaneously exposed to a wealth of literary\ , musical and artistic history\, as well as the dawn of the internet and th e information age\, his work chronicles an effort to marry the rich cultura l legacies of Old World Europe and 21st century America. His work often re- imagines classical themes from legend and myth via contemporary subject mat ter\, frequently in a narrative style. His paintings are fables\, featuring totemic animal archetypes and talismanic objects.

J ulia Heyward: \;Conscious Knocks Unconscious.

J ulia Heyward\, \;sometimes known by the moniker Duka Delight\, \;is an artist who has consistently strived towards an emotive\, \;textured \, \;and unapologetically demonstrative approach to her preferred media s of video\, \;performance\, \;and photography. \;

< em>Conscious Knocks Unconscious
 \;brings together Heyward&rsquo\;s earliest experiments \;&ndash\; \;spanning the years 1971 to 1984& nbsp\;&ndash\; \;and tracks a period in which the artist evolved from b eing a young graduate of the Whitney Museum&rsquo\;s Independent Study Prog ram\, \;to becoming a prominent figure in New York&rsquo\;s downtown pe rformance scene\, \;and ultimately a key influence and participant in N o Wave\, \;the post-punk movement of bands\, \;artists\, \;and film-makers with which she is closely associated. \;

Mor e information coming soon.

Julia Heyward \;(b. \;19 49\, \;USA) \;lives and works in New York. \;This is her first monographic survey.
