• Articles on ArtZone 461 and Artists

San Francisco- CA - ArtZone 461 presents a solo exhibition featuring a survey of works, 1947 to the present, by historic Bay Area artist José Ramón Lerma. He is among the important artists whose careers are most associated with the San Francisco school of Abstract-Expressionism.
                                                                                                     read more  >http://artknowledgenews.com/2009-09-09-20-34-12-artzone-461-gallery-opens-a-survey-of-jose-ramon-lerma-works.html
SAN FRANCISCO — At first glance, Korea-born artist Jeong Im Yi’s trompe l’oeil studies of cracked, scarred walls and peeling paint appear to be detached analyses of decay or disrepair. But take a closer look at her paintings, and you start to see a history unfold. Whether with expanses of white walls afflicted with bits crumbling at a seam, small stones of compressed sediment or the well-used wooden box lovingly rendered in “Grandfather,” Yi captures little details people often overlook, showing a respect for and reflection on the passage of time.                      
                                                                                                              read more  >http://www.sfexaminer.com/entertainment/Korea-born-painter-reflects-on-time-and-memory-51437612.html
Jeong Im Yi: Reverent Memories, a collection of new and recent works by the Korean artist, is on display in the ArtZone 461 Gallery main space through Aug. 16.  The San Francisco gallery also hosts a group show of its own artists as a celebration of its first anniversary. Among the featured participants is Keith Gaspari, who worked for several years in interior design and fashion design, including time with Joan Vass and Geoffrey Beene.                                                                                            read more >http://www.contracostatimes.com/ci_12813358?source=rss&nclick_check=1

Jeong Im Yi elevates the quintessentially banal to the rarified realm of high art via the trompe l'oeil ploy by painting the likes of smooth rounded creek bed stones, empty drawers, lone apples, masking tape on dinged up sheetrock walls, and even the back side of a stretched canvas. You gotta look twice sometimes 'cuz they can get seriously subtle, but in the end you like 'em. And lastly, she throws in a set of primary color-field squares to pep it all up.                                                                                                read more  >http://www.artbusiness.com/1open/071109.html

ArtZone 461 Gallery: Jeong Im Yi - Reverent Memories
ArtBusiness.com | Alan Bamberger | July 11, 2009

It has been said that the avant-garde of any period is simply those with the most energy. By that token, the sometimes scruffy, less-than-pristine galleries in the Civic Center and Mission District might presage the future of San Francisco’s art world--at least if you accept the premise of Franklin Melendez, who, in a recent San Francisco magazine article praised the marketing savvy of the new, ambitious Generation Y entrepreneurs who have set up small galleries in the bohemian-hipster Mission District.  Melendez believes that these new dealers might make San Francisco he next big thing, nationally and internationally: the new SoHo...

Farther west along bike- and cafe-friendly Valencia Street are the closely spaced Jack Hanley Gallery, Michael Rosenthal Gallery, Artzone 461, and Mina Dresden Gallery, all showing emerging to mid-career artists.

The Art of San Francisco
ArtLtd. Magazine, San Francisco Special Supplement | Dewitt Cheng | September 1, 2009

"I'll paint until I drop dead," he [José Ramón Lerma] said Wednesday in his Oakland apartment. "But I only paint when I want to — I don't punch in or punch out. It's not a job. It's a gift, and it's a privilege."  Lerma is to painting what Clint Eastwood is to movies. Both continue to excel after first gaining importance in the 1950s.
                                                                                                     read more  >http://www.mercurynews.com/columns/ci_13318390

Outdoor forest scenes depicted here with more color and detail, but on close examination approaching the abstract. The paintings are not monochromatic, though they play with the idea, ultimately yielding to color schemes. One can get lost in these shimmering colors. The work evokes our previous experiences in the woods with wonder.

Jose Ramon Lerma is a veteran Bay Area artist who has somehow eluded-- well, at least, not pursued-- the attentions of the art world, 'til now, anyway.  Nice selection of work here, from his Surrealist/Los Tres beginnings in the late Forties through AbEx (for which he is usually associated), and Pop, to his current conceptually oriented assemblage sculpture.  On his early career: 
"The [Korean] war has pushed and liberated me. There was no fear of the abyss. I became open to everything and let my feeling come from the inside."

“Though I paint landscapes, I am not a landscape painter. I use the outdoors mainly as a setting for urban and social issues. In this body of work, I have been preoccupied with placing images of industrial or domestic trash in the scenes to create a raucous disharmony with the surroundings”.

William Wolff was a San Francisco painter and printmaker of the Bay Area Figuration generation. A friend of eminent artists like James Weeks and Theophilus Brown, a lover of literary and musical culture, and a political progressive, he represents the engaged humanist artist, SF-style.  His dramatic woodcuts here compellingly reimagined through a pictorial synthesis of Picasso, Matisse, and Beckmann.

September issue, 2009

Perfect viewing for Halloween weekend, the paintings of Gage Opdenbrouw evoke a sense of nostalgia & isolation. It’s worth clicking around and getting to know of this young California based painter.

The Pursuit of Happiness. Pro Arts' 2010 Juried Annual is a triumph of diversity  | East Bay Express | DeWitt Cheng | December 09, 2009

...Happiness, a juried group show judged by London independent curator Sherman Sam, is complex, provocative, and diverse.
... Jane Fisher and Rico Marcelli work within realism, but idiosyncratically, Fisher portraying a prize-winning steer at its moment of glory, and Marcelli representing an apartment door with its ageless brass number, peephole, and mismatched jambs.
