Spoke Gallery, and SF fun

A little late posting pictures, but the recent trip to San Francisco was awesome!

The opening night for the September group show was a great evening. I was stoked to finally meet Charmaine, Tatiana and Handiedan as well as Ken Harman who did a great job of putting the show together and taking care of us all.

Nice to see Handiedan’s work in person for the first time. There’s so much textural detail to her pieces that is missed in the shots you see on the internet, I was really digging the darker tones of some of her newer work too.

Speaking of black, Charmaine Olivia’s work was equally impressive and by way of contrast, Tatiana’s paintings were buzzing with vibrant colours and energy. Beautiful work!

Opening night:

The rest of the trip was spent hanging out and checking some of the galleries and opening nights. Special mention to Brett Amory’s show at GalleryAD in San Jose which blew me away. Awesome work, haunting and ethereal but still firmly rooted in urban reality.

Other highlights: Hanging with Tatiana and Han and sketching over coffee in the morning. Visiting Charmaine in her studio – inspirational, I HAVE to get a studio sorted. And Ken’s collection of sneakers. We only got to sample a few of them but heard many stories. The guy is obsessed.

Craww @ Spoke Gallery SF Sept 1 – 22

Time to post about some new work and an upcoming show!

I’m very excited to be part of a new exhibition at Spoke Gallery in San Francisco. I have 4 new paintings showing alongside work from Handiedan, Charmaine Olivia and Tatiana Suarez. All the work is based around different interpretations of the female figurative and I’m stoked about how the differing styles  complement each other.

Opening night is September 1, 6pm – 10pm, showing through September 22 at Spoke Art, 816 Sutter Street, San Francisco CA. I’ll be there on the night so if anyone can make it, come and say hi!
