> DESCRIPTION

San Francisco, CA -- FFDG is pleased to present San Francisco based Henry Gunderson and Brooklyn based Eric Shaw in the impressive two person show, "Glint" featuring 15 new paintings from the two accomplished artists. This will be Gunderson's third show and Shaw's first centerpiece show with FFDG. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, Sept 14th (7-10pm). Both artists will be present. Beer and wine will be available.

Eric Shaw and Henry Gunderson are two young artists walking the contentious middle ground between a tried and trusted geometric abstraction and a newly forming breed of representational surrealism. Shaw's work, hopping between abstraction figurative narratives and unabashed op-art patterning, is a refreshing reminder of the fertile and ever-growing common ground between the worlds of independent music and professional art. Gunderson's newest work is a renewed showcase of his ability to embrace painterly two-dimensionality while remaining fully engaged in an image's potential as a window-space to be entered and explored. Both artist's work share an obtuse unearthly charm as a common language, and their work promises to have an energetic and productive conversation in their upcoming exhibition. -Tom Betthauser, 2012
