Artists: Jennybird Alcantara, Robert Bowen, Victor Castillo, Chris Mars, Christian Rex Van Minnen, Lee Harvey Roswell, Isabel Samaras, Ron Garrigues, Brian Goggin, Jessica Joslin, Lucien Shapiro, Ransom & Mitchell, Rob Reger, Chuck Sperry. Nice to see the fantastic and fabulous work commemorated. There have been tens years of awesome and sometimes dark work on display. The amazing visions have been iconic in San Francisco with all manner of narratives. Fun to look at some of these stories even if a few are from the darkside. The works are emotional and occasionally a bit personal; you may have been there and understand. Great show and memories.- ArtBusiness Review View the DECADE-1 Exhibit Online
Dan Quintana Zero Instruments Opening Reception: May 25, 6-9pmVarnish Fine Art is pleased to present Zero Instruments, a solo exhibition of new work by Dan Quintana, opening on May 25th, 2013. This exhibition showcases Dan Quintana oil paintings and charcoal drawings, featuring the bold figures set in allegorical landscapes that Quintana is known for. Zero Instruments… these (musical) devices will serve as an allegory… Our hearts and minds are a concerto of one. In this case, zero. The essence has and will always remain. Savage. –Dan Quintana
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, painter Dan Quintana channels a style reminiscent of the late Hieronymus Bosch, but with a modern twist. The tones, brushwork and overall technique of Quintana yield a result which pays homage to the great 13th century master, but it is his subject matter, and re-imagining of today’s “earthly delights” that puts his work in a class all of its own. Collectors Preview for Zero Instruments
