HEAD ON SWIVEL | Chris Konecki Solo Show
Through May 26thKonecki is self-taught and constantly experimenting. He is known for completing large scale aerosol murals, fine artwork including paintings and miniature sculptures, as well as various public and private site specific installations. Konecki’s work is explorative of social consciousness, generally irreverent, and focused on subjects that are both serious and absurd. His use of found and ‘repurposed’ objects in his work advocates the reassessment of typical ideals of function and beauty. Elements of nature often collide with harsh urban landscapes and elements of street art and graffiti, symbolizing the ongoing struggle between the harmonious coexistence of these two competing monumental forces.

11 Minna Gallery Presents

AMANDALYNN + LADY MAGS

Opening Reception: Friday, JULY 12th, 2019 | 5-11pm
Through August 29th

Alynn-Mags are very proud to present ‘Lullaby’, a fine art exhibit, debuting at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, CA, opening Friday, July 12th, 2019. By definition, the word Lullaby refers to a soothing song or piece of music that is played for children. Lullabies are also often used to develop communication skills and emotional intent. Amandalynn was inspired by a beautiful Lullaby written by her friend, Phyllis Whitney and sung by the very talented Venetia P. The simple yet meaningful words and melody of this particular Lullaby evoke an emotion of peace and connectedness to everyone. For Amandalynn, that is something that she also hopes to achieve with her new series of work for this exhibition. She shared this Lullaby with Lady Mags, and together the duo has been dreaming up a visual display of artwork intended to inspire and ease the viewer, just as the perfect Lullaby can soothe one’s inner child.

A Guy Colwell Retrospect Show | 1990’s to Present

“This artwork is outward looking. Confronting the world as it is and engaging in public discourse about it, are more important than exposing the inner self or producing beautiful spots of color to decorate walls. It is artwork that looks at the human world as we find it now in the early 21st century. It is artwork that looks at the natural world as it is, threatened and threatening. And, at its crucial heart, this artwork is an exploration of the relationship, or more precisely, the alienation that exists between these two worlds. These pictures from the early 1990’s until the present should each be read as an essay about the state of life from the perspective of one big primate at this moment in time.” – Guy Colwell
IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE FUTURE | Beau Adams Solo Show
Adams creates richly textured oil paintings on canvas and finely detailed watercolor works on paper, finished with intricate gold-leaf applique. In a style inspired by classical pietas and Byzantine era icon paintings, his work introduces modern symbolism and ideologies. Beau creates images of holy men with patterned vestments and Russian gang tattoos, vivid and energetic oil paintings borrowing from classical composition that highlight the violence often intertwined with religion throughout history.
