Weekend Extravaganza

Heading down to Los Angeles for this weekend’s LA Art Fair! Don’t worry we will still be open for one last day of Sanguine Machine by Beau Stanton. If you aren’t attending the Art Fair you should definitely hit up our pal, Casey Gray’s exhibition titled Style of Eye, opening this Saturday October 1st, at White Walls Gallery. Check out his sweet promo video here.

Studio Visit: Scott Greenwalt

Last week we took a trip to visit Scott Greenwalt in his Oakland art studio. We caught him in the midst of preparing for his upcoming solo exhibition titled Alchemist, opening November 2011 at Gallery Hijinks.

The works have a sense of chaos, grotesque, scientific phenomenon combined with a mutation of both uncertain origin and destiny. Check out some snapshots we grabbed of the works in progress ranging from small paper pieces to large paintings on wood panel and canvas.

(t)here new works by Pakayla Biehn

On Exhibit: October 8th – November 5th, 2011

Opening Reception: October 8th, 2011 from 6-10pm

Gallery Hijinks is proud to present (t)here, a solo exhibition by Pakayla Biehn. Featuring new photorealistic multiple-exposure paintings that revisit the cognitive distinction between authenticity and abstraction while utilizing the suggestive combination of critical and substantial realism. Please join us for the opening reception on October 8th, 2011 from 6-10pm.

Building upon the double exposure theme of her previous works, Pakayla uses oil paint on canvas to present dream-like transfiguration of the natural world. The skill and refined beauty of her paintings enlists a realist style that recalls the delicacy, formality, and craftsmanship of old master techniques. She combines the cultivation of the portrait with a very intimate and vibrant observation of nature.

The artist is concerned with themes of ephemerality, melancholy, and the marriage of subjective experience and beauty. Pakayla’s process treats her subjects with a modern approach; the dual imagery provides the viewer with the sense of historical substance or the artist’s version of it.

Pakayla displays the unique potential to capture her subjects in inextricable moments that appear to straddle two worlds at once, that in which we exist and another slightly beyond our comprehension. These indistinct figures lend to the imagination with soft color, faint texture, and shrouded focus, offering the viewer a chance to finish the story that has been laid before them.

(t)here: a point where emotional complexity, dreams and reality are unified in a solo exhibition by Pakayla Biehn. Showing October 8th through November 5th, 2011. This event is open to the public.

Beau Stanton Installation

Beau Stanton is not only an amazing oil painter but turns out he can make cool installations too! After taking a few trips around the greater Bay Area to collect the materials to make these framed structures, the team went to work. Special thanks to Erik Otto for donating scraps from his massive salvaged collection of goodies, Builders Recourses, Ohmega Salvage and the streets of this great city.
