LA Collector Tim Campbell 
lives with Art by Frank Ryan
Home of the Brave
Article in November Art Ltd. Mag.
by Paul Young

Tim Campbell might be a very wise man. Each day, as the 44 year-old architect arises from bed, he looks directly at Francis Ryan’s Dead Soldier, which depicts an almost life-sized image of an Iraqi battlefield, with a lone corpse splayed across a desert floor. His arms are severed and charred, his skin burned beyond recognition. “I didn’t buy [the painting] to shock people,” says Campbell. “I bought it because it’s a way of re-engaging with the horror that we’ve all grown to live with and ignore. Because I don’t want to forget things like that. I want to face what we’re doing as humans, as people, and as a country, everyday. So more than anything else, it helps me remember why I’m angry about the things that I’m angry about.”

Valencia Street, ground zero of the burgeoning Mission District in San Francisco, bustles with a cacophony of sights, sounds and interactions: the streets swarm with creatively tattooed twenty-somethings, local Latinos exchanging stories in Spanish, shopping cart-equipped street people and young professionals returning to their refurbished Victorian condos after a day at their jobs in the Financial District. Gourmets from other areas of San Francisco dodge the sidewalk action as they hunt for the storefront of the latest, cutting edge restaurant or check addresses for yet another new clothing or furniture boutique.

Soda Cans is the initial project in an upcoming series of marble objects by Agelio Batle. Using art history's most regal of materials, Batle's Soda Cans are both irreverent and provocative. They wink back at Greek and Roman sculpture while asserting marble's place in contemporary design. The Soda Cans are also functional: lifting the lid reveals a perfect space for small storage!

ASB Workshop is currently accepting reservations for Soda Cans.

Jane Fisher’s Down Time opening is featured on the website for San Francisco Art Gallery  opening reviews of October 25, 2008.

Alan writes: “Twenty-year survey of paintings and works on paper by Jane Fisher, portraits and figure paintings for the most part, all adept. What gives Fisher's work depth and bite is that you know there's a story behind each piece -- either the one she tells you or the one you make up yourself”.

Jane Fisher
Down Time Opening

Jane Fisher’s exhibition is reviewed by Chérie L. Turner in her Nob Hill Gazette column A Fine View.

Turner writes: “Loose brushstrokes of bold color capture tense, complex, contemplative, sometimes amusing or strange situations with people who often directly engage the viewer. Fisher’s mastery of medium and color, and ability to capture the psychological state of her subjects, even in the most ordinary of settings, results in beautifully captivating imagery”.

Down Time Review

Lincoln Center Theater commissioned Jane Fisher to create a painting to be used to promote their latest production Saturn Returns.

The planet Saturn's orbital return to its position at the moment of a person's birth happens every thirty years. Playwright Noah Haidle uses this phenomenon to take a look at one man during these pivotal moments - a three different stages of his life - as he confronts the three women in his life.

Saturn Returns is on stage at the Lincoln Center Theater in New York until January 4, 2009.
