Spoke Art is pleased to present “Fade and Finish”, a new solo show by San Francisco-based painter Jessica Hess. Following her successful solo show last year at White Walls gallery, and two person show with Kevin Cyr there the year before, Jessica Hess will be debuting a new body of original paintings starting September 6th, at Spoke Art gallery in San Francisco.
Known for her photorealistic paintings depicting the sprawling graffiti-laden landscape, Hess’ work combines traditional and formal technique with contemporary subject matter. The result is a documentarian snapshot of her ever changing environment, a moment of time perfectly captured and recorded in between the flux and constant states of change that are an ingrained aspect of the street art world.

Epilogue is an immersive installation based art show. It’s processes and concept have been inspired by America’s gun loving culture, corporate behemoths considered “to big to fail”, and a financial meltdown. It has pushed the three of us as artists away from what we have come to identify as our own individual styles along with the tools and mediums we have become used to incorporating into our artistic careers. We’ve traded the more traditional media of oil paints, canvas, and inks for reclaimed billboards, fire stencils, carbon soot emissions, and hand painted assault rifles, as a way of taking what we felt was a more relevant look at today through the scope of our art. This video itself is a movie style trailer come art video, that acts emblematically of our longing to step outside our artistic comfort zones. What we did with the video was a new feel for us in that we did not show the artwork nor do a traditional narrated artist interview but instead looked at the video as a piece of art itself which does less to answer a question and ideally more to inhibit curiosity in the viewer, leaving them with questions on our modern society and potentially life itself.
“Epilogue”, a show by D young V, Eddie Colla, and Hugh Leeman, opens Saturday, September 8th at 7 p.m. in downtown Los Angeles at Hold Up Art Gallery, 2 blocks south of the Geffen Contemporary MOCA, 358 E. 2nd St. know more, see here epiloguela.com

The Pasadena-based Rob and Christian Clayton, otherwise known as the Clayton Brothers, are known for producing dynamic, extemporaneous, yet purposeful paintings. The Clayton Brother’s work is inspired by the ethereal sublime, and searching for that moment of calmness. Their images speak to all through a universal, visual vernacular borrowed from folklore, mythology, urban legend, sound bytes and info-graphics.
“A lot of our work addresses the feeling of ‘bliss,’ and the moment when everything seems perfectly sound,” says Rob. The Clayton Brother’s recollections of the past are revealed as slightly tainted yet sublime memories. They believe the world of action sports and art are analogous to each other in a way that it takes extreme creativity and intuitiveness for the athletes to do what they do.
“The Signature Series is refreshing because art and action sports have always gone hand-in-hand,” says Christian. “Art is one element that separates action sports from other mainstream sports. As youngsters, we were passionate about skateboarding, BMX, and punk rock.”
