painting painting aims to look at painting from all sides both in terms of content and practice. The frame is challenged, the use of paint or other materials is exploited, and with experimentation at its heart these works emerge from a larger dialogue.
Painting since Modernism has long pursued a course of knowledge. In the case of Mark Rothko it was that of the Sublime. Ad Reinhardt sought it in the value of abstraction, and Robert Ryman in the paint itself. While painters like Vija Celmins cause viewers to stagger in disbelief at an intricately realistic scene that is the product of hand and brush. Jackson Pollock postulated the gesture. In her essay “Greenberg on Pollock” (1993) Rosalind E. Krauss describes what is known so well about Pollock, the drip and how the work did not “join tradition, culture, and convention” until it was lifted off of the floor and onto the wall. The trajectory of painting has evolved significantly and now resides in the chaotic. There are artists who paint and there are painters who practice, though these are not irreconcilable.
painting painting presents both sides of the coin and all matters of content on the spectrum between aesthetics and the political.

The ArtPadSF Contemporary Art Fair comes to San Francisco May 17-20, an independent hotel-based art fair focusing on emerging and contemporary galleries and artists at the legendary Phoenix Hotel.
"The Phoenix is the quintessential place to host an independent art fair," ArtPadSF Director Maria Jenson notes. "It's an oasis located in a San Francisco neighborhood that's on the edge, and for many artists, collectors, and enthusiasts, exploring the areas just outside of our comfort zones or what we recognize as familiar, is often the most invigorating way to find hidden treasures. Collecting can be fun and need not be limited to the exceptionally affluent. It can also be as much about the hunt as it is the find. ArtPadSF is an adventure-for us as producers, for our exhibiting galleries and artists, for our partners and sponsors, and hopefully for ArtPadSF visitors."
The Phoenix Hotel is located in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, a hotbed for the city's emerging artists. Perhaps the last frontier of SF's ever-expanding gentrification trend, you can still stumble upon unpolished gems in the forms of incredible cooking, unpredictable bar scenes, mom-and-pop stores, great live music and a thriving art community. This area is also home to Twitter HQ, Grey Area Foundation for the Arts and Asian Art Museum, and is in close proximity to the most recognizable art institutions of the city, such as San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA).
