Chris Fallon Interiority and Other Objects Park Life Gallery 220 Clement st SF CA 94118 Interiority and Other Objects unites two groups of paintings set in distinct but analogous environments: the swamp and the home. Both places provide their own form of sanctuary to Fallon’s off-kilter characters. Some have been drawn to the swamp for clandestine communion, under cover of shadows and peculiar flora. Others have congregated indoors amongst artifacts meant to signify sophistication, but which instead project banality. Fallon’s people possess archetypal tokens of beauty (flowing hair, painted lips), but they are nullified by skewed placement and aesthetic flaws. In the tension between flatly-rendered people ...

Link When Jamie Alexander and Derek Song opened the first Park Life store on Clement Street nearly a decade ago, they knew they were taking a risk by moving into a neighborhood better known for its cheap eats than its appetite for left-field art and design. The boutique flourished in the Inner Richmond, ushering in like-minded retail spaces such as the clothing retailer Seedstore and eco gift shop Foggy Notion. Now the Park Life partners are hoping to repeat the formula with their second outlet of the same name, which opened this month at the corner of 22nd and Shotwell ...

Park Life is proud to present What Have You., an exhibit of new paintings from Evah Fan.

August 31 – Sept. 30, 2012.

Opening Reception Friday August 31, 7-10pm.

Fan's delicate gouache paintings are narrative, poetical and minimalistic and sometimes puzzling. Her sparse and colorful compositions contain elements of nonsense, mystery, and whimsy. Fan tackles mundane objects and figures in negative planes throwing in elements of parody and irony that address a certain naïve humor. Her subject matter often mines historical details from Victorian and Egyptian eras.

Landscape art represents the cultural, political, and spiritual aspirations of a particular group of people. Because humans are nostalgically inclined and landscapes are forever in flux, people may often find it challenging to appreciate the vistas before them, instead preferring to wax sentimental about the past or to anticipate a gilded future. Michelle Fleck’s paintings, however, don’t offer viewers such pastoral panoramas. Instead of arcadia, Fleck foregrounds overfilled dumpsters, stripped billboards, and construction
