Collection and Analysis 2, Mounted Pigment Print, 20.5"x20.5", 2009

I have unearthed myself from my holiday hibernation to bring you a smattering of shots from my latest curatorial endeavor. “Plastic Makes Perfect” features the work of San Francisco-based photographic artist Aron Cohen. The opening of the show was met with rave reviews, due most certainly in part to Cohen’s ability to surprise viewers and invoke wonder with aesthetically appealing and conceptually intriguing works of art. Cohen composes his subject matter in such a way as to create a sense of abstraction that one would expect from a painting. Executed through the photographic process, Cohen stages his materials and carefully composes each piece. The resultant images portray a sense of ethereal space, weightlessness, and an embodiment of the immaterial. For more on this collection of work, please follow the jump. (more…)

I recently noticed that my very creative and talented friend Mark Likosky has a nice, new website featuring his gorgeous photography. Mark’s work can be sentimental and moody as easily as it can be about a tight composition or a journalistic narrative. The thing I love most about his work is that it is completely authentic. Mark doesn’t just try to take pretty pictures. The gingerbread trail of his many adventures around the city of San Francisco and around the world, his photos are what happens along the way. See more after the jump. (more…)

Visionaire is a the gold standard of art and fashion publications. Released three times a year, the album features a different theme and format with each issue. The 56th publication, “Solar”, is one of the most innovative expressions of packaging and design I have seen thus far. What appears under indoor light as an all-white book with white embroidery and white book sleeve transforms in the sunlight to the colorful presentation you see below. Utilizing this same printing technology for the inside of the book, the pages of black and white imagery adjust with explosions of color when exposed to sunlight. See more images after the jump.

In the recent Winter issue of Colors Magazine, there is an article on the art of surveillance that is quite intriguing. The featured work belongs to Hasan Elahi who, in 2002, was stopped by the FBI at the Detroit airport and questioned about his whereabouts on September 11th. (more…)

Have you seen the Creative Holly Color blog yet? It’s all about color. The site’s creator, Holly, asks her favorite creatives to mix their own CMYK color palettes which she then posts with just the right amount of commentary.  I thought it was such a unique idea for a blog that I just had to ask Creative Holly for an interview.

Good morning and happy Monday!


How would you like this handsome guy to wake you up every day? Might not be so bad…

Anyway! I have a big day planned today with lots of visits with some of my favorite artists. First, I’ll be swinging by the studio of Jane Kim – she’s doing a residency at The Dump. If anyone is considering applying for this residency you won’t want to miss the post on this visit.

Next, I’ll be heading over to check out Silver’s new work. I’ve been wanting to curate a show with him for a while so hopefully we’ll get to work together soon!

Then, I’m off to see Kelly Ording to return the lovely artwork she let me borrow to show to a couple of galleries on her behalf.

And last, I’ll be visiting my friend and inspired seamstress, Amanda Asbury of Panhandle Handmade, to work on a little project of my own and take some pics of her sewing studio.

Keep an eye out for all of these posts to show up soon…
