Magician's Garden
Paintings & Sketches by Josh Keyes

April 7 - April 30, 2011

// Josh Keyes was born in Tacoma, Washington. He received a BFA in 1992 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA in 1998 from Yale. Keyes is drawn to the clinical and often cold vocabulary of scientific textbook illustrations, which express the empirical "truth" of the world and natural phenomena. He infuses into a rational stage set many references to contemporary events along with images and themes from his personal mythology and experience. These elements come together in an unsettling vision, one that speaks to the challenges of our time. Keyes currently lives and works in Portland Oregon with his wife, graphic designer Lisa Ericson.

Paul Urich
Gone But Not Forgotten
Jan 8 - Feb 15, 2009

// Driven by the notion that people die when their face is no longer recognizable, San Francisco based Paul Urich haunts his viewers with faint sketches of anonymous folk culled from old family albums. With light pencil strokes, Urich sets tiny faces floating on vast expanses of paper, then overlays them with dabs of color and broad gouache strokes that resemble the bubble and burn of melting celluloid.

Tiffany Bozic
Symmetrical Balance
Oct 25 - Nov 16, 2008

// Symmetrical Balance is a continuation of San Francisco based artist Tiffany Bozic's investigation into the human relationship with the natural world. Allegorical paintings illustrate the notion that all living things share basic needs and desires: to preserve our fragile body, to forage, to nurture and protect our family. Revealing the interdependency between predators and prey, humans and our environment, Symmetrical Balance exposes the equilibrium that must be maintained between self-preservation and the other life upon which we depend.

Mike Shine
8 Tracks and Wallbangers
Aug 8 - 31, 2008

// Mike is a painter who mixes driftwood, reclaimed house paint, Nordic mythology, insomnia, 1970's pop culture, absinthe, Teutonic philosophy, his wife, and woodworking skills leftover from a previous life- to make art that is one part uplifting and two parts disturbing. His coastal art/surf shack was recently featured in Fecal Face's Art Mondays (view it), and intrigued us to bring his work into the Fecal gallery for a closer look.

Tara Foley
Say Hello To Neverending
June 6 - July 3, 2008

// "Say Hello To Never ending" is an exploration of the idea that things have no beginning and no end - everything is cyclical and patterns repeat themselves. Using both graphically intracate and sometimes diagrammical acrylic paintings in combination with found object installations, Foley creates a narrative about the infinite potential borne from life cycles. Her work charts the symbiotic relationship between destruction and creation by mapping a world ruled by juxtapositions; a door scorched by fire on one side, yet pristine on the other, a diagram of barren trees giving way to lush ones, dynamics within our social structure.
