I went to the Fecal gallery opening, man that place is small. I was kind of surprised that piece didn't sell but if you look at the price and size and the new character it is more understandable.
As much as people say they want new stuff from artists, way more people want a pink bunny or a skull bunny than a kangaroo I bet. Plus at that white walls show you could get a huuuge woodcut piece for what? like $300 more? I still like the piece though.
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"
Oh yeah, I thought some of them were $1,500, guess they were all $1,800. But I think those canvas pieces like the one you got were bigger than the kangaroo one, and they looked cleaner and more precise. I think I might rather have something like this for $600
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).
