Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Art Market SF / NYC, a group exhibition. Due to the postponement of Art Market San Francisco, originally scheduled to take place in April, we wanted to take the opportunity to share new and recent works which were made especially for the fair.
Dennis Brown (also known by his pseudonym Bagger43) is a San Francisco based artist who studied illustration, working as a full-time designer and utilizing his free time to pursue self generated art projects. The playfulness and lowbrow style of Oakland based Jeffrey Cheung’s contorted nude figures has quickly gained traction within the Bay Area’s ever-changing art scene. Cheung’s humor translates across his works, which depict a celebration of love, acceptance and equality.
San Francisco based Kim Cogan’s work explores the many mood and environs of American cities through the use of oil paint, capturing contemporary life in all its beauty and absurdity. Bay Area artist Jessica Hess is a hyperrealistic landscape painter. Her depictions of the urban environment celebrate the art of graffiti and explore themes of censorship through a fine art lens of oil painting and gouache.
Erik Jones is an Illinois based artist, who investigates figure, form and composition in his works, intermixing elements of hyperrealism and geometric expressionism. Rendering elements of his subjects in a hyperreal aesthetic, they are surrounded by a colorful swell of shapes, color and form. San Francisco based Sean Newport’s sculptures deal with perceived notions of reality and the idea of creating a digital aesthetic through analogue processes. Working primarily as a woodworker, Newport has honed his skills as a carpenter and fine artist over the past decade.
Joel Daniel Phillips is an American artists whose work focuses on the tenets of classical draftsmanship. Inspired by the depth and breadth of human experience, he strives to tell the personal and societal histories etched in the faces of those around him. Pennsylvania based Crystal Wagner combines 2-D and 3-D form, alternative use of materials and hybrid approaches to printmaking to create amorphous sculptural works and large scale installation.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there will be no opening reception for the exhibition, and the gallery will be closed to the public. The exhibition will be on view through the gallery website. An Instagram live walk through of the show is scheduled for Saturday, May 23rd at 3pm eastern. Joel Daniel Phillips and Crystal Wagner will participate in the live stream.
