Übermensch
A solo show of works on canvas

Opening Reception: Friday, July 5th, 2013, 6:30 – 9:30pm
Show Dates: July 5th through August 3rd

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 1AM is pleased to present, “Übermensch”, a solo show by Ales “BASK” Hostomsky that opens July 5th from 6:30-9:30pm. “Ubermensch” will showcase works depicting children painted as superheroes on found and weathered surfaces that exhibit an energetic urban art aesthetic. The term “Ubermensch”, coined by Friedrich Nietzsche, refers to a state of being super-human; a state which Nietzsche believed mankind should strive to obtain. Expect to see a mix of iconic comic book imagery and playful representations of children upon panels and box frames.

During his childhood, the idea of God as a form of salvation seemed like a foreign concept, but the thought of becoming a super-man seemed obtainable or, at least, something worth striving for. BASK’s highly textural works of child-like figures upon layered, urban backdrops with vibrant comic book iconography recall the fantastical imaginings of his youth.

Bask’s work has appeared in countless publications in both advertising and editorial capacities. He has been shown in the Florida International Museum as well as the Jacksonville Museum of Modern Art, which also has his work in its permanent collection. In addition to doing work for Death Cab For Cutie, Primus, and RIDE Snowboards, he was recently commissioned for a series of canvases for the backdrop in Iron Man 3.

HEAVY WATER – Cannon Dill’s Solo Art Show – April 5th, 2013

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

Le Qui Vive Gallery is inside the Famous Four Colors building in Oakland, CA.
Heavy Water Art Show.

Cannon Dill from LeQuiVive Gallery on Vimeo.

Cannon’s dual conflict of man and nature remains evident as he works in the classic wood grain, rustic, fine line detail of work. Cannon takes on a new form as he introduces color into his palate. Between the sharp lines a new liquid, oozing between the idea of innards and substance. The colors strike and dawn the perimeters of the artist’s narrative scale. At first glance, Heavy Water becomes the feeling of the pinnacle, folksy storytelling from Cannon, leaving the title of the show to stand for the organs produced. Dictating the scale of proportions, this narrative begins to set this rule. We also gain the magnitude and importance in the large scale murals that Cannon produces; a direct translation of size within his work. The approach reprises the undertones that Cannon consistently aims for. A sense of detachment from the wonders of the simple world bring to life the harrowing dismissal of nature; present in the subjects he draws a new idea of reason, awareness & introspective thinking.
