Michael Hall

Michael Hall presents a series of paintings studying the various abandoned coastal defense structures scattered throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. These defense structures were used as outlook posts for possible attacks that never came. It is interesting to see these bunkers still standing on guard as the ground beneath them attacks, and erodes their surface. This show was on view at the Patricia Sweetow Gallery in San Francisco.

Jennifer Poon


I am very excited about today’s blog posts as I will be writing about a few of my most favorite artists. The first of them being San Francisco based painter, Jennifer Poon. Jennifer creates a fragile and fragmented world that which communicates her personal experiences, race, social identity, sexuality, etc. Her paintings always has a way of having me reflect on my relationship to the world and those around me.

Jason Matthew Vivona


I am transfixed to Jason Matthew Vivona’s dense, psychedelic portfolio of work. There is just so much going on! At first glance I thought I saw a parade of body organs, but upon closer inspection, I noticed beautiful works of intricate detailing, patterns, colors, etc. It’s kind of difficult to imagine this is all from tea, wine, coffee, or whatever Jason was drinking at the time. I wonder what he is drinking right now…

A Day In Decay: San Francisco (Part 4) Ala Ebtekar Studio Visit


No trip to SF is complete without visiting St. Francis Fountain, the ultimate brunch spot. I ordered the wrong thing and my server was cool enough to bring me the right stuff without gruff. I felt like I should have given him some B/D shirts or a book but I didn’t have anything with me. I have no idea what his name was but someone reading this blog has to know him. Blonde dude with tats who looked like a surfer/skater type and was wearing a hat with the rim bent back ala Suicidal Tendencies style. If you know who he is email us on our contact page so I can send him a care package for the great service. Okay let’s head back south….

Alex Cornell


San Francisco based Alex Cornell has a track record of pursued professions that makes most feel like underachievers; he is a graphic designer, musician, and dabbles in photography.  These collection of posters are reminiscent of 40’s atomic bomb informational posters with a hint of contemporary influence.  His organization of graphic elements is very clean and eye pleasing.
