Press via Beautiful Decay: Great show up at FFDG in San Francisco right now. Eric Shaw and Henry Gunderson spent a couple weeks on the beast coast cooking up some vibey abstractions for us and now they’re ready to be seen! Both artist’s works definitely play off each other really nicely, and if you’re out in SF, this one is not to be missed.
In and Out, Eric Shaw

Eric Shaw and Henry Gunderson are two young artists walking the contentious middle ground between a tried and trusted geometric abstraction and a newly forming breed of representational surrealism. Shaw's work, hopping between abstraction figurative narratives and unabashed op-art patterning, is a refreshing reminder of the fertile and ever-growing common ground between the worlds of independent music and professional art. Gunderson's newest work is a renewed showcase of his ability to embrace painterly two-dimensionality while remaining fully engaged in an image's potential as a window-space to be entered and explored. Both artist's work share an obtuse unearthly charm as a common language, and their work promises to have an energetic and productive conversation in their upcoming exhibition. -Tom Betthauser, 2012
