on the hunt for good art

Gary Evans @ Little Paper Planes

March 8th, 2012 · 3 Comments

Little Paper Planes is best known for bringing you oodles of prints by talented young artists, but now they are putting on exhibits – with the same quality and coolness as you’d expect from Kelly and her crew. LPP recently launched Abstraction in Canada¬†which is curated by Otino Corsano and appears to be their most ambitious show so far, with 10 artists. I was particularly taken with the muddy, neo-fauvist work of Gary Evans, below. The rest of the show is also worth checking out if you’re into abstract work.

Justin Richel Print Giveaway!

April 19th, 2010 · 12 Comments

Update: Congrats to winner, Leigh-Ann, of Swirl Syndicate! Seriously check out her adorable and hilarious line of baby and kiddie T’s.

Next Monday I will be giving away this Justin Richel letterpress print thanks to one of my favorite print shop, Little Paper Planes! To win, leave a comment between today and Sunday, April 25th. The print, which measures 6″ x 9″, is a Little Paper Planes exclusive and part of an edition of 45.

“The stacks for me are about the precarious balance, they allude to the fragility of circumstance. For instance the stack can only exist so long as all of its pieces are cooperating together, to shift or remove a piece would inevitably send the whole thing crashing to the ground.¬† So the paintings themselves become social commentary. I try to draw parallels between human interaction and the stuff that we surround our selves with.” – excerpt from Justin’s interview with LPP.

Christine Kesler Print Giveaway!

UPDATE: Congrats to the winner of our Christine Kesler print giveaway, gretchenmist!

Holy smokes! This is Art Hound’s 100th post and to mark the occasion we’re giving away a Christine Kesler limited edition print courtesy of Little Paper Planes.

Christine is a Bay area artist whose installation work combines painting, drawing and paper sculpture. Her cerebral process involves reusing her own materials as well as found objects, adding layers of complexity. Writing and poetry also play a significant role in Kesler’s art.

To win Christine’s print (top left), leave a comment. The winner will be notified via email in one week!

(Please be patient as I have to approve each comment before it posts. Thx!)
