i thought the wood cuts were $1800 i was on the fence between a woodcut and the canvas i got... and i though, eh. i'll save $600 & the ones i thought were the nicest were gone already. then when i saw them in person, i thought "damn, would have been pretty sweet to get one of those"
In his first museum exhibition, Jeremy Fish will use the upstairs galleries to do an installation with symbols and characters that he has been developing over the last ten years. Fish's iconography generally consists of a fairy tale world inhabited by beavers, skull, and birds which he has developed in part as a response to the influence that popular culture, cartooning, and literature-like the Brothers Grimm-has had on him.
Fish, who lives in San Francisco, was born in 1974 in Albany, New York, and has lived and worked in San Francisco for the last 15 years. In 2006, Fish worked with Nike Skateboarding, designed the Air Classic Shoe. Fish has also collaborated with hip-hop artist Aesop Rock for the album The Next Best Thing.
He has had exhibitions at Fifty24 SF, San Francisco (2008, 2006); Joshua Liner Gallery, New York (2008); and The Don Milan (2008). His publications include Once Upon a Time, published by Fifty24SF Books (2008); Romantic Delusions, published by Drago Books (2008); and the cover of Juxtapoz magazine (December, 2006).
