Love, Death, Poe, and Lovecraft. A couple shows opening this weekend 10/6 & 10/7


On Friday, October 6th 6-9pm, Modern Eden Gallery opens its show, Loved to Death. The show is co-curated by Audra Kunkle, owner of San Francisco’s infamous Loved to Death curiosity shop that was featured on the Science Channel’s television show, Oddities. Loved To Death started out as an art endeavor making Victorian-themed anthropomorphic taxidermy dioramas and jewelry and now specializes in odd antiquities and Victoriana. You can expect dark-themed artworks inspired by oddities, antiques, taxidermy, memento mori, natural history, crystals, and skulls.

The show features Ransom & Mitchell, Jackie Gallagher, Anke Fachmann, Gillian Keller, Sheri DeBow, Syd Bee, Megan Buccere, Mary Syring, Vahge, Mel Alves, Daniel J Valadez, Aunia Kahn, Hilary White, Lara Dann, Sybiline, Dave Richardson, Catherine Moore, Tracy Lewis, John Walker, Avery Palmer, Rebecca Adams, Phillip Hua, Adam Caldwell, Kai Carpenter, David Natale, Brian Donnelly, Lori Nelson, Steve Lawson, Bethany Krull, Johnie Thornton, Scott Holloway, Brandice Guerra, Ron Norman, Lacey Bryant, doubleparlour, Jaclyn Alderete, Amy Ahlstrom, Lee Harvey Roswell, Caitlin McCormack, Erica Calardo, Michael Ramstead, Jasmine Worth, Peter Palfi, Steve Javiel, Ben Patterson, Henry Schreiber, Delphyne V., Amandalynn, Terry Ribera, Alec Huxley, Daisy Church, & me. My contribution is about the little things we should love, but are dying…the bees.
“You Don’t Know What You Got, ‘Til its Gone” 11×14″ acrylic on oval canvas. 
Modern Eden is located at 801 Greenwich st. San Francisco.

 

On Saturday the 7th, Oakland’s Faultline Artspace opens Tekeli-Li, an art show inspired by the macabre/horror masters, Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. “Tekeli-Li” is a mysterious cry used in stories by both Poe and Lovecraft. Its meaning has never been revealed. My piece pays tribute to both authors, using Poe’s raven with a nod to the fictional town of Arkham, Massachusetts. A prominent location in many Lovcraft stories.  

“The Raven of Arkham” 11×14″acrylic on canvas.


Faultline Artspace is at 850 42nd Ave #2D (Entrance and Parking at 815 High Street), Oakland, California.

Enjoy the weekend, everyone be safe.

 

Visions Collide show at Luna Rienne Gallery

The entire catalog and available pieces for Visions Collide are now available to view at lunarienne.com. The Three person show features 26 pieces by me, Monty Guy, and Leon Loucheur. Here’s a bit about the show:

Visions Collide explores the sources of dreamlike visions that stir the creative conscious. Some are encountered as we move through the world through serendipity, gifts of life and points of interest as we move through our lived experiences. Some are products of the mind, that visit us both invited and unannounced, revealing themselves at varying rates of consciousness whether or not they are welcome.

Bowen, Guy, and Loucheur manifest these multifarious visions in their own unique styles with this exhibition. Each of these artists takes disparate elements and puts them together in some sort of union that speaks metaphorically and emotionally to the viewer via inclusion, juxtaposition, and exploration.

Visions Collide runs September 9 to October 9th at Luna Rienne Gallery
Luna Rienne is located at 3318 22nd st, (@ Valencia) in San Francisco.

WowXWow show now online!

Lightning Bolts and Little Sparks, the inaugural show curated by the awesome website WOW x WOW, is now live and up for you to view. Below is a bit about and a link to my piece, Peter, your friendly neighborhood spider, man. From there you can check out killer pieces by a ton of outstanding artists. Thanks for including me, Tim!

About the piece:
“How does one go about constructing a Bio-Mechanical spider? I’m not really sure. I’m also not really sure if said spider would be capable of injecting DNA altering serum into anything it bites. (Seriously though, what would have happend if that spider bit anything other than an awkward high schooler?) I, however, can take you through a bit of my process of the painting I did for Lightning Bolts & Little Sparks. Its 24×36?, acrylic on canvas”

You will find a few progress picks and for any interested parties, you can purchase the piece from HERE.

Peter was recently used as a poster for the band Mastodon’s 4/20 show at the Palladium in Los Angeles. That poster is available for purchase on my store page.
