Travis Millard and Michael Krueger are opening a new exhibition in San Diego at Double Break tomorrow night, May 18. They are calling it Digging A Hole, Looking For Something, and if we lived in San Diego, we would go. “Double Break is delighted to announce Digging a Hole, Looking for Something, an exhibition of new work by Michael Krueger and Travis Millard. Coming to us from Lawrence, Kansas and Los Angeles, CA respectively, Krueger and Millard will bring new drawings, prints, ceramics and more. Both widely exhibited and admired artists, the two first connected at the University of Kansas and have long drawn inspiration from one other. Both artists explore the figure of the “common man,” displacing the mundane and the mythic from everyday life, weaving threads between past and present. Their search for the sublime in this densely hyper-visual yet vacuous post-industrial age is rife with humor, longing and discovery, as is apparent in this selection of new works on view at Double Break. The opening reception is Friday, May 18, 2012 (6-10pm).”
Double Break is excited to announce Horror Days, a solo exhibition of works by Gunsho (a moniker for the Providence, Rhode Island-based artist James Quigley). His ongoing series Demonology is a modern interpretation of the seventy-two demons classified in the occult text known as the Goetia. This series of screen prints began in 2006 as part of a continuum of autobiographical cartooning that began very early in his childhood.
The show opens tomorrow evening (October 7th). Be sure to stop by.
Recently opened in June by UC San Diego MFA grads Matt Coors and Louis Schmidt is the gallery and art bookstore Double Break. They recently had a show with Jay Howell and Chris Kardambikis that runs until August 28th and a book signing and release party with Ed Luce in coordination with ComcCon. The space looks great. If you’re in San Diego, swing by and check it out.
