Seaweed and Space 

Wednesday, Mar 24 2010
Seaweed and Space Husband-and-wife team Kate Tedman and Eric Siemens go by the name Kate Eric in the art world. Unlike most spousal duos, they paint together, collaboratively, which may seem impossible to anyone else who's married. Very few people paint well with others, of course. But the arrangement yields epic canvases — at "Bug War Over Two Blue Mountain," they're twisting, spacey cathedrals inhabited by bright, organlike shapes. Gray expanses drop out far behind orange nonlungs with flapping finlike, seaweed-inspired appendages, while protoplasm shoots out all around. The exhibit is named for a particular, huge new work that looks like a grand medieval fairy tale under the sea, equal parts Hieronymus Bosch and surfer acid trip.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    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.'"
