HEY CUPCAKE

In April 2012, Zannah Noe traveled over five months and 13,000 miles around America exploring this nation’s landscape and cultural identity…“Traveling to the guts of America to find its bones.” The work explores our nation’s differing regions through ideologies and aesthetics.  This first exhibit will feature a range of photographs including images from a Louisiana prison rodeo, Detroit graffiti, public art, portraits and a Girl Scout vintage uniform fashion show in Washington, DC.

Souvenirs will be shown under the guise of a “Gift Shop” showing samples from the artist’s collection and her own original souvenir and trip icon: the laser cut roller coaster. Addressing the irony of American souvenirs made in China, Noe created her roller coasters at the Detroit Tech Shop. “Made in Detroit” etched on all souvenirs is an acknowledgement to the Rust Belt and the country’s diminishing manufacturing sector. Originally used as an aid in creating her own street art and paintings, the roller coaster stencil became the icon, the souvenir, and pledge gifts to her supporters. Noe retranslated the stencils in glossy red plastic—as a souvenir with a metaphor, a tool in graffiti, an object d’arte—the “Made in Detroit” roller coasters echo the American experience.

Zannah formally studied photography at Hampshire College under the conceptual photographer, Carrie Mae Weems. Her work has graced the cover of SF Weekly and has worked as a photo editor for publications and magazines. While she is primarly a painter now, she uses her photography as source material for her work.

Springboard & Bones 2011
Featuring the paintings of April Hankins and Zannah Noe
THURSDAY NIGHT OPENING SEPT 22th 6-9pm
SAT & SUN 12-5PM

April Hankins received her BFA from The Massachusetts College of Art and earned her MFA from Yale University. An accomplished and noted painter we are thrilled that she is showing her latest series in our September show.  Her latest work, the Springboard series earns its name from her process - immediacy of gesture painting to push to another place in her work. The impulses in the strokes produce patterns and emphasize lines - nothing is sacred in this process. Building quickly on each impulse she lets the painting lead wherever it goes. No editing or reworking; the paintings are created via a rhythm of instinct rather than working consciously within formal constraints.

Off April’s hand comes vibrate botanical shapes, curves of earthen tones and layers of translucent paisley forms. Her abstracts are lush, grounded and full of fantasy, with a trained painter’s hand, she lets loose and springs forward.

Zannah Noe just returned from a two-month road trip through the Southwest showing American Bones: Amusement Architecture. She will be showing new work inspired by the Southwest as well the Amusement Architecture series.

American Bones Series is an exploration our cultural threads as a nation. The Amusement Architecture work is the first installment of the series. The boardwalks and fairs where generations came of age are now dated. The artist is depicting the rides as a testament to our past; a time before American marketing and engineering skills merged into a global industry of themed entertainment. The Southwest series explores our archeological roots from ancient alien/Indian cultures, western motifs, cowboys, to our modern past of space science and missile testing.

Buy & Bye Retrospective 2011
Featuring the paintings of Petra Dufoo

WEBSITE: www.PetraDuffoo.com

FRIDAY NIGHT OPENING
May 20, 2011 6-9pm

Food provided by our chefs, Jason Snyder and Steve John of (Y)our Food Choices. Sample their amazing Homemade bread and cheese panni sandwiches!

Petra Duffoo has lived and painted in the Bay Area for over 15 years.  She holds a BA in Psychology with an emphasis in Art Therapy from Sonoma State and a minor in Mathematics from University of California Santa Cruz. A certified acupuncturist from Berkeley Acupressure Institute and a teacher of qiqong; she has a unique sensibility of the organic, spiritual and concrete nature of numbers.

The Buy & Bye Retrospective represents work from the last seven years and shows her development in both abstract themes and color. From 2006 to present, Petra’s body of work fully embraces the abstract and linear parts of her personality as the earlier Pod series becomes less distinct. The linear elements are consistent but in 2009, her form loosens up and the palate explodes in bright and vivid colors. Her current work finds that the line is represented, not of itself, but as a product of two elements meeting - defining a line in the boundary of colors and shape.

"Rhythm in Space" 2011
Featuring the suspended sculptures of Soo-Hwa Yuan

WEBSITE: www.SooHwaYuan.com

Opening Night April 15 2011 5-9pm
April 16-17th 12-5pm
Soo-Hwa Yuan's work deals with the intersection of light, form, and movement. While his installations explore the mystery of space with light and fabric surfaces on a large scale, it is his suspended sculptures that embody these three elements on a more intimate level.  With light, the sculptures create movement with shapes, and change shapes with movement.  This dynamic interplay of light, form, and motion creates visible rhythms as air moves the sculptures through space.  
The work will be shown in a unique space that allows the viewer to move around, beneath, and above the sculptures to view them from various levels and angles.  
Yuan holds a Master of Architecture from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and BA in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley.
