The INDIE - 1988- 04.21.07
Gallery 1988’s SF space just opened tonight, in time with APE, and The Indie was an incredible show. Honestly what i’d hoped I Am 8-bit would be more like. The art was amazing, and if i had to pick one piece that has been stuck in my head since, its Rich Tuzon’s “Samurai vs. Cowboy”… as well as his other cowboy themed pieces… They feel like the manlier version of Audrey Kawasaki’s pieces in a way… (and the other one up there is Graham Annable’s “Space Saddness”). Incredible selection of artwork, you can see more of them at the 1988 The Indie page, and pictures from the opening in Gallery NOTCOT… and a few more below.
These were the other cowboy pieces by Tuzon.
Other standouts from the show? - chuck norris piece, star wars piece, Kevin Dart’s ladies, Josh Ellinson had some amazing cats and squid, Jason Sho Green’s “SAVOUR THE WHALES”, Annie Owen’s piece, Camilla d’Errico’s crazy robo girlies with insects and birds strapped to their hair…
See my quick snap shots here.
