Art Rocks
A set of two rocks and a map contained in a box

Each box of Art Rocks packages portable protest so that if California State legislators once again reduce state services and give money back to the wealthy, your voice can be heard loud and clear.
Jeff Foye and Gordon Winiemko create situations wherein an audience will reflect on their participatory role in the ever-changing cultural narrative; every one of us contributes to our collective culture, but at the same time we are all defined by culture. As such, their work frequently “takes on” the form of familiar social customs and iconography, and also enters into a dialogue with the site or the context in which the work is exhibited. The artists also forward their personae, and frequently mediate their performative actions through video, as informed by the cinematic aesthetic. The artists live and work in the Los Angeles area. jeffandgordon.net

charlene tan: happymeal

paper sculpture with box and tag

As a child of immigrants, assimilating and culture shock come naturally as breathing. Accepting and having the American taste for fast food came as a hallmark of socio-economic assimilation, a badge of honor. An example of this “badge of honor” can be found in the “Happymeal” marketed to children by offering toys and junk food.

kelly lynn jones: a mediated living box

A Mediated Living Box
Unique boxed sets containing small sculptures and a 4 x 6″ photograph
in edition of 10 total, signed and numbered on the back
$75 each

– a moment is captured by a photograph
– the photograph’s image is searched through Google Images database
– someone else’s moment is discovered
– sculptures are created to depict this image of a stranger’s moment
– the original moment evolves into something entirely new

Kelly Lynn Jones uses her studio as the infrastructure to document an evolving process of making, breaking down, remaking, and repeating. Her “work space” exists next to the “designated art space”. The distinction between her studio and a finished art piece has blurred, yet are still contingent on one another. The action of developing a new physical situation and having to negotiate a conversation between process, place and object is what Jones is attempting to attain. She uses her personal landscape mediated through found images on the internet, by remaking objects found in photos and isolates them within a three dimensional space and ultimately bringing them back to an image. This slippage between the semblances of the real, authorship, and personal vs. public are highlighted through her process of making. www.kellylynnjones.com

leah rosenberg: plates & napkin sets

Dessert Plates
Food-safe 6” or 8” hand painted dessert plates
$12 – $18 each

I wanted to make something that one could eat off of or hand on the wall. I work as a pastry chef at the Blue Bottle Rooftop café and thought ideally one would buy a dessert plate at Shadowshop and come over to the café to order some cake they could ask to have served on their striped cake. Delicious.

Each package contains 26 napkins in 13 assorted colors.
$8 a set

I hand embossed napkins with the phrase I Made This For You and repackaged them so each package would contain a riot of color.
Life is like the crust of the earth or the rings of a tree. Our experiences and emotions accumulate in layers. Moments follow moments, days upon days. A rush of passion builds over the sweep of a familiar song, which came after a morning of disappointment, which blanketed a dream of pure joy. My process combines systems of accumulation and layering techniques often through color and stripes, to explore how our experiences, emotions, and memories build up over time.

Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Rosenberg received her MFA in 2008 from the California College of the Arts and her BFA in Visual Arts from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2003. She is an inter-media artist whose bodies of work combine systems of accumulation and elements of layering to explore how our experiences, emotions, and memories build up over time. Her paintings, paint-based sculptures and cakes have been exhibited throughout the US and Canada. She is currently employed as the assistant pastry chef at the Blue Bottle Coffee rooftop garden café at SFMOMA, creating desserts based on artworks of rotating museum exhibitions.
