Triple Base Gallery
3041 24th Street,
San Francisco, CA 94110
After a long evening of work and then a quick dinner we had to seriously motivate to get out the door. Since Triple Base is only a few blocks from our house the bike ride was a quick 5 minutes... A complimentary glass or two of wine from Bear Flag in the back of the gallery helped to keep spirits high as we checked out these two great shows from artists who recently returned from long stints abroad. Oliver inspired from a year long spiritual trip to India went to town in the basement while Bryson displayed new paintings created during his two year stay in the arty town of Berlin.
Andrew of Ever Gold which is closed for the month during renovations.
Some nice works in the back room.
Bryson Gill's work
Like these two.
In the main project space, Triple Base is please to present Bryson Gill's newest body of work that spans painting, drawing and sculpture the culmination of the artist's two-year stay in Berlin. Gill's densely layered paintings explore the fine line between abstraction and figuration, all the while struggling between the rational and the natural. The composition of Gill's ambiguous landscapes, totemic structures, and portraits remain just recognizable enough to create a spectrum of meanings and emotions.
Stairs to the basement space.
Down we go to the hot muggy basement.
In the coinciding Triple Basement exhibition Japa, artist/curator Oliver Halsman Rosenberg returns to his San Francisco roots to share the work he has made after one year of nomadic art making in India, as well as create a shrine with work by other travelers, locals, and friends he met during his journey. Rosenberg's series of small gouache paintings on recycled eucalyptus paper from Munnar and drawings on rice paper from Phaplu is infused with local inspiration as well as imagery mined from probing the subtle depths of consciousness.

On the way out 6 cop cars descend onto the intersection with guns drawn. The Mission keeping you on your toes.
