A few weeks ago, we dropped in on Alex Pardee and his team as they were painting the offices of Urban Air in SOMA/San Francisco. We snapped a few photos, caught up with the man, and tried not to get black paint on our shoes. Thank you to Urban Air for letting us sit on their couch and vent. —Raymond Brown/The Citrus Report

One of our favorite artists, and friend, Herbert Baglione, just updated and opened a new website, featuring a bunch of works that previously were hard to find from the past 3 years. As you may already know, Herbert is a Brazilian artist based in Sao Paulo, who has had his Visa revoked from traveling within the United States after a mistake at Houston’s airport in late 2007. Because we haven’t seen Herbert since his solo show at Lazarides Gallery in London in 2008, we wanted to make sure we see his art. His bodies of work continue to be some of the most thought-provoking, introspective creations we have see each year. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report.

Swampy “In My Room” Open for 1 Extra Day Today

Review of the show by The Citrus Report:

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-followed Swampy Skull 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 by friends and casual passerbys. And most importantly, it is not permanent. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report
