Tip of the Iceberg 

Wednesday, Sep 19 2007
In artist Ryan Scully's Water Rushing Through Forms, a soft, round, bulbous form floats in a turgid sea, a weighty lump that's set off by a small protuberance, seemingly reaching out to — OK, it's pretty much a boob. Creating flesh colored, humanlike blobs that hint at buttocks, torsos, feet, and hands is Scully's thing, and he places his objects in mad, colorful oceans that recall Japanese woodblock prints. His work shows up in the appropriately titled group exhibit "Fertile Ground," which also features the delicate juxtapositions of William Crump, who places beautifully rendered male athletes engaged in traditional sports (football, track and field) against traditionally feminine backgrounds like floral wallpaper. Sarah Sohn and Julia Marchand also contribute.

    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
