Jim Budde Art Show

Hello Friends,

It is my great honor to have the Lottie Rose Gallery hosts my mentor and good friend Jim Budde this coming November 12th.

Jim Budde is known both for his politically charged satirical pieces about contemporary issues and personae, and sculptural teapots that combine expressionistic human and animal imagery.  He draws from popular culture and classic literature as well as historical art references.  In each of these contexts the work often mingles imagery that carries diverse associations about the human condition creating a sculptural collage with a poetic narrative.  He enjoys working with the prerequisite boundaries and technical obstacles his references impose on the way in which he approaches each new work.

The inherent dialogical nature of Budde’s work is strongest when referencing a current event, well-known personality, cultural icon or literary reference. Conversely, when Budde works from more imaginative resources, the pieces begin to emphasize form and a feeling of entity over direct subject matter. Both approaches highlight the strong voice and striking technique that has become equally signature to Budde’s work.

I hope to see you all here for this amazing art show!!

Gummy Leotard and Other Easy Recipes

Opening Reception: October 8th from 6-9pm.

Totally Rad Gallery (1212 San Pablo Avenue, Oakland) is very excited to present “Gummy Leotard and Other Easy Recipes”. The Gallery will be set up like a movie theater and will feature a “movie reel” of video works by Amber Mueller and Marguerite Kalhor. These series of videos and soundtracks examine the lore and traditions of popular American culture. Installation, video and artwork for sale.

Amber Mueller is a painter and media artist. She employs found video, audio and recordings of television programming and creates collages that resemble portraits and narratives. Her work commonly contains themes of cultural identity and gender roles, often examining the beautiful as well as the disturbing elements that are woven into popular American culture. 

Marguerite Kalhor is a painter turned new media artist. Interested in contemporary practices in social media, she takes styles, concepts and processes from YouTube videos and applies them to her video practice. Her work is currently focused on social media possessing their own characteristics; the results of both human cultural constraints and the overall framework of the web platforms on which posts are placed.
