Amy M. Ho: We Are Only Dust and Shadow


Dates:
Fri Jul 11, 2014 13:00 - Fri Aug 08, 2014

Location:
San Francisco, California
United States of America

Amy M. Ho
We Are Only Dust and Shadow
July 11 - August 8, 2014
Reception: Thursday, July 17, 7:00-10:00 pm

How do we learn to move through space, to navigate in darkness?

Our understanding of the world and our place in the world are rooted in our phenomenological relationships to our environment - space and architecture determine what we experience and in turn shape out perception of the universe, both physically and emotionally.

We are comprised of matter, we are defined by our relationships to the environment, by the light that allows us to cast shadows.

Cybele Lyle: The Moon Is Slowly Rising


Dates:
Fri May 30, 2014 19:00 - Fri Jul 04, 2014

Cybele Lyle
The Moon is Slowly Rising

May 30th - July 4th
Reception May 30th, 7-10pm

This show comes from the inside out. It is rooted in intuition and desire for satiation. A visceral and intimate process of examining architecture and queer space. A particularly introspective moment of life, delving into an interior world - of warmth, safety, color, pattern, and emotion. A place where printmaking's repetition of motion and form tap into what is constant and what changes. Materiality, tactility, the physical nature of process.

"Wouldn't the sentence 'I want to put a hyphen between the words Fish and And and And and Chips in my Fish-And-Chips sign' have been clearer if quotations marks had been placed before Fish, and between Fish and and, and and, and And, and And and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and and Chips, as well as after Chips?"

Tony Clifton Eats For Free


Dates:
Thu Mar 06, 2014 19:00 - Fri Apr 11, 2014

Location:
San Francisco, California
United States of America

Chris Hood
Tony Clifton Eats for Free
March 6 - April 11, 2014
Opening reception: Thursday, March 6, 7:00 - 10:00 pm

Utilizing the materiality of canvas like a screen or a rag, the works in Tony Clifton Eats for Free are at once both surprisingly interrelated and in playful opposition. The titular character of the exhibition’s fame and mythology are spread amongst various actors, interpreters, and imposters; an apt reference for a body of work that acts as a stage for multiple roles and citations. The egregious lounge singer’s disputable existence only adds to his reputation, he maintains an open tab at a restaurant nearby the artist's studio but its unclear if the offer has ever been taken up. Clifton’s legacy justifies the restaurant’s policy, and in turn the policy makes Clifton that much more real.

A similar impending possibility exists in the works on view. The hybrid paintings in oil, acrylic, and inkjet transfer offer an insouciant look into the ontology of the self as negotiated amongst digital and physical territories.These are not endgame or absolutist maneuvers. In looking towards the specific problems of painting and representation, Hood combines subtly familiar forms of digital image making - errant doodles, cloning, masking, deletion etc.- with the gaps, strokes, stains, misdirections, and distortions that arise from and bear witness to the paintings’ production. This operation may be the result of labored translation from source to screen to object and back, or it may be contained in swift gestures.

An array of source material from art history, personal photographs, signage and clipart anchor these works in a ground of familiarity, but one which is askew from any singular narrative or process. Hood calls attention to the ever-shifting interplay of image and meaning, fractured amongst various screens and methods of viewing. Anti-humor, bathos, relativism and the nonsensical connect in painterly exchange.
