Charlie James Gallery is delighted to announce All Makes & Fashions, an exhibition of labor by San Francisco-based artist Jeffrey Sincich. This exhibition will probably be situated on the gallery’s CJG2 area at 961 Chung King Rd.
All Makes & Fashions is a group of quilted market indicators, combined media sculptures and neon window grates. Sincich makes use of quilting and located objects to discover the handmade qualities of metropolis landscapes. He’s constructed his work based mostly on previous signage and long-standing storefronts to attract your consideration to every day necessities. Every bit contains a service or luxurious that’s usually neglected.
As a former signal painter, I look to indicators and architectural particulars across the metropolis for inspiration. Indicators are fixed reminders of what we want, and when and the place it’s out there for us. The pandemic introduced into focus what every of us finds essential in life, and for me, the every day necessities stand out. Auto restore outlets, milk, toothpaste and laundromats all should be placed on a pedestal.
Indicators on the road consistently compete for our consideration. They emit sounds, gentle up with neon and tower above with vibrant colours. Wrought iron window grates serve to guard and beautify. They each invite you in and preserve you out. I quilt textual content and imagery from indicators to spotlight their handmade qualities and use neon to emphasise the elegant curves of an iron grate. This mixture of various textures and located objects recreate a distinctively acquainted place.
