Of Ice and Movement by KLUTCH, at FIFTY24PDX Gallery May 2nd – May 26th, 2013

Klutch has been making a mess for over three decades. From his work with the early 1980’s hardcore punk scene and the legendary Skull Skates, to painting backgrounds for ads in Vogue, his work has appeared around the world on t-shirts, skateboards, city walls, magazines, and galleries. In 2005 the suite he created at San Francisco’s Hotel Des Arts was featured in Time magazine’s annual “Best Of” issue. Since then he has accomplished very little.

In Of Ice and Movement, Klutch builds and installation which is a sculptural representation of glacial rust, intended as a metaphor for the constant yet invisible to the naked eye process of personal growth. All work, over 125 handmade wooden columns, was produced over the past 6 weeks exclusively for this show, and this is the only time they will be shown or sold in Portland.

An opening reception for Of Ice and Movement will be held First Thursday, May 2nd 2013, from 6:00-10:00 PM. Show runs May 2nd – May 26th 2013.

All we are going to say is, you will be very, very surprised… there is a ton of great work going into this show… from the installation each piece of work.

Swampy “In My Room” Opening Night

DSC 8491 15 605x402 Swampy In My Room Opening Night swampy paintings interview installation in my room

We have had a bunch of openings that we have visited over the years, a bunch at FIFTY24SF Gallery in particular. But there was something in the energy on the 200 block of Fillmore Street last night, when the first patrons began walking into Swampy’s “In My Room” solo show and installation. At first, the show is clean and simple: 3 large paintings and 8 photographs. They were striking simply based on what we know of Swampy: photos of train-hopping adventures throughout North America, paintings on found objects, and of course, the now widespread and cult-created Swampy Skull Donkey icon.

But then, of course, this show was not just 3 & 8. It was a full installation, with these 11 works just as integral to the concept of the “In My Room” installation as the entire back room experience. This was a “Swampy Show,” the before and after, the work put in and the output, inside the mind and what comes out in paintings and photographs. The life, lifestyle, and the work. The adventure. The obsession. The dedication. The character.

So, of course, you lift the 3rd paintings, and climb into the world behind and inside the Swampy Donkey. Its cluttered, it moves, it makes a sound, and it gets added to but friends and casual passerbys. And most importantly, it is not permanent. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report

It would be really cool if we could embed this video of our friend David Choe with Scion, but they won’t let us embed things because we aren’t special enough, and/or they don’t embed options. So trust us, and click here, but David talks about stuff in it.

Monica Canilao and Jason Jaworski at Noise Pop Culture Club

NOISE POP/CULTURE CLUB with FIFTY24SF present:

FUTURE SOUNDS

MONICA CANILAO & JASON JAWORSKI
Future Sounds is a collaboration between artists Monica Canilao and Jason Jaworski, consisting of an on-site installation created by Monica Canilao and a performance within the space by Jason Jaworski. Culled from found objects, ephemera and other bits of houses long fallen, Canilao’s shack installation activates the dreams of all who look upon it; the roof bleeds colors of every possible outcome a path will take you once you step out of these four walls. In a performance within the installation, Jason Jaworski, dressed in a costume spilling out of the entrance, will be delivering fortunes and the prose of a person’s future on a typewriter to any who enter and inquire.

Saturday and Sunday, FEB 26-27 at SF Public Works
