Opening: Sage Vaughn @ FIFTY24SF Gallery

We braved the rains on Saturday night, and opened Sage Vaughn’s Runaways exhibition at FIFTY24SF Gallery. Everyone seems to really like two envelope pieces in particular, and we will let you guess which ones we mean. The baseball bats in the window get a nice atmosphere going once you walk in. The show is open through December 15, 2011. Then, the infamous Terri & Gary show.

Tonight: Sage Vaughn “Runaways” @ FIFTY24SF Gallery

Just a reminder that Sage Vaughn is opening his new solo show, Runaways, at our FIFTY24SF Gallery tonight, November 19.

After two successful exhibitions at London’s Lazarides Gallery and The Outsiders, Vaughn returns to the United States with a body of new work. The first group of work in Runaways echoes the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, “children are all foreigners.” The work illustrates the cast off minutia in our midst, the runaways, the street urchins, scamps, and hooligans that are often ignored. The focus is on the individuals, the small things. Vaughn uses song birds, feral parrots and escaped exotic pets on their own or, at times, with an accomplice, in an obscure dystopian setting. Here the viewer can explore sentiments of rebellion, survival, isolation and stolen sweetness the birds experience as they go about their secret lives above our heads.

The second group of paintings looks at the concept of the fleeting existence of the butterfly. A butterfly is only in this form for a comparatively short period during its life span; during which, it lives to fly, to mate, and to reproduce before it fades. constructing a single visual movement based on the compulsion of the individuals illustrates the driving force behind their transformation. in these works  assembles the inconsequential to a point where they can emphasize something more powerful and instinctual.

Runaways will feature works in a variety of mediums, including a new series of paintings and Vaughn’s iconic envelope paintings. There will also be a large-sized hand-painted print in an edition of 24.
