FACES & PHASES a solo exhibition by Jesús Zamarrón

“In my work I enjoy expressing spontaneity and randomness with line and color, this gives the paintings a type of freedom and ease that contrasts the deeper voices of the subject matter, the story behind. So at the end my art is about life itself, a struggle between the yin and yang, the laughter and the seriousness of being alive. ”


Zamarrón is a graphic artist whose work has been presented in different media: internet, television, video, print, as well as art galleries. He has exhibited his work both in Spain, the United States and Northern Europe. After he had just arrived to San Francisco in 1995, he was very excited to be invited to participate in the annual show at the prestigious and avant-garde “New Langton Arts” gallery in 1995. This was a breakthrough experience and an eye opener for him and good beginning … Read more ›

Hanna is a Fine Art and Contemporary Portrait and Documentary Photographer who still shoots film.
“The photographs of Hanna Quevedo are completely magnetic.  In equal parts they are intriguing, evocative, emotionally connecting and ultimately thoroughly engaging. Hanna sees the world she inhabits as a keen observer.  Her ability to move through externals to the heart of her subject is strong and direct.  It is through her distinct observations that she uncovers the unusual amidst the ordinary.  Her sensitivity to her surroundings, both physical and personal are evident in the way in which she sees.  Observation and engagement coexist in all of Hanna’s photographs, and all contain compelling visual insights to her subjects.”
Danielle Wohl (Art Advisor)

Joshua Nissen King’s new works explore the conversation between the viewer and the neglected object. Forgotten or unseen fragments of memories and peripheral clutter fill the saturated space of King’s current series.
The mark, the gesture, the color, and the simplicity of suggestion of form are the primary components and the only tools used to access the viewer. The deconstruction of both form and subject reveals the fragile fabrication of the facade, as well as equating the surreal deterioration to our capacity to retain memory and the inevitable fleeting of the details. The most gestural marks in context with each other can suggest something so real to our memory. The device that is used has to be vague, items we all have encountered or know, but reside in the periphery of memory and every moment.
These works successfully portray the choppy fill as we travel through everyday absorbing the minimum … Read more ›
