ÜBERMENSCH – Ales “BASK” Hostomsky Solo Show – San Francisco, CA

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

BASKCanvas-1AMGallery1AM Gallery
1000 Howard Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

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.

RECKONING – A Group Show About Catastrophe – 9/28/2012

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Reckoning at 1am SF Gallery.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 1AM is pleased to present “Reckoning”, a group exhibition reflecting society’s obsession with catastrophe, both imagined and real. The collection includes original art by Leon Loucheur, Optimist, Robert Bowen, Pemex, Monty Guy and Chamber Made. Drawing from a wide array of disciplines and cultural influences, these six artists expose a darkening horizon, commenting on the ruinous, self-destructive capacity of human societies. The opening reception is on September 28th from 6:30-9:30pm and is on view through October 27th.

“Reckoning” will feature works that incorporate a variety of styles and techniques, blending highly rendered realism with abstract painting, collage, urban and graphic influences to build mood and dynamic into the narrative of the composition. With graffiti and street art backgrounds, these artists will surprise viewers with this newest collection of works aimed at deconstructing conventional realism and reassembling it with layers of context and meaning.

All of the participating artists have been actively showing in galleries around the Bay Area and abroad, bringing worldly impressions from Ireland, South Africa, Taiwan and more. Explore their imagination and experience their influences through dramatic images and compelling landscapes in the paintings displayed in “Reckoning”.
