LIL VICIOUS featuring DOUG E.FRESH, Freaks, 199…?
The first time I saw Jason Jägel’s work was at the inaugural Bay Area Now show at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts back in 1997. His large narrative drawings were some of my favorite works in that show, which is saying a lot considering fellow participating artists included Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen, Chris Johanson and Rigo.
Jason’s paintings have a story telling quality to them. His works on paper combine text, flat color, shapes, and images to create a narrative that exists in the present. September is a busy month for Jason, as he has shows opening back to back in Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as the book launch of “73 Funshine”.
Sad news for Saturday, Deitch’s art Parade has been cancelled due to impending weather. I cancelled a bbq a couple weeks back due to impending weather, it ended up being gorgeous and I ended up hungover anyway.
Opening tonight deep in Bushwick is Power and Currency, a group show curated by Natalie Kates. Featuring notable artists such as Espo and D*Face amongst others, artists in the show explore “these two fundamental forces.”

Notorious B.I.G., Big Poppa, 1993
Got an interesting looking tube in the mail yesterday. Follow me after the jump while I open it up…
Got a nice email surprise from Paul Schiek last night.
Opening tonight at Stephen Wirtz Gallery in San Francisco is the thing about you is you will end up like me. The show sounds pretty impressive as ” the gallery has been rendered entirely white—floor, ceiling, and walls—resulting in an environment that feels unbound and separate from time and the physical world outside, even as it presents a stark distillation of the artist’s relationship with that physical world. A small selection of black-and-white photographs hang from the walls, and stacks of newly released, self-published photography books by the artist emerge organically from the gallery floor.”
Somebody take pictures for me.
