gocco print by peskimo.
here shop and gallery just celebrated their 5th anniversary, what better way to celebrate then by having a party with some talented people and the print gocco?
we feel that the accessibility of print gocco reflects our own DIY ethos in running a gallery, and so have chosen to celebrate our 5th anniversary with a group show of gocco based artwork. to accompany the exhibition, we will be releasing a portfolio of gocco prints, produced in a signed and numbered edition of 50, collected in a custom made presentation box.
we’ve selected artists who look beyond the limitations of the device, to show that it can also be used to produce fine art works. those involved are from a range of disciplines; textile design, fine art, illustration, graphic design, and animation.
the artists invited to take part and show their gocco talent are as follows: arctic circles, jill bliss, simon dovar, andrew groves, yellena james, xtina lamb, magic jelly, mark pawson, nigel peake, peskimo, aaron sewards, lucie sheridan, yee king tuit, jazmin velasco, julie west. the show will run through november first. see opening photos on flickr here and here.

i recently bought monica canilao's book this is home, which i will blog about next week. however until then, i just can't ever get enough of her work. i love her use of traditional craftsmanship w/in her work. seen here are two pieces of her's that are in the current show combine: a group show of cut paper, collage assemblage at BLVD gallery in seattle. to see more work of the other artists involved in the show check here for art work or here for opening photos. while you're there make sure you get a good gander at that aj fosik piece, it's sick.
fabric 8 just joined the blogosphere. which is awesome, now we can keep up on all the new stuff in their sf boutique/gallery. i personally love these paintings by daniel fleres. they're so cute, i kind of want to eat them. anybody else have that overwhelming feeling w/ adorable-ness? if you are interested in these sweet paintings, i'd get a move on, as one has already sold.
while i was at 49 geary, i also stopped by the jack fischer gallery to say hello to jack and check out the matt furie show, nature freak. matt's drawings are always full of amazing detail and color. as usual there was a lot of naughtiness going on in his work. robots and tree ladies havin' a blast, birdies and rainbows co-mingling. it's enough to get a girl to blush, whilst still stealing glances! i love how his brain works. it was nice to get in to see the show before it closed. you can check out the full show on the jack fischer gallery.
p.s. the image below isn't in the show, but it is one of the first pieces i ever saw of matt's...and i just love it. just look at how happy that lil guy is!
