Press Release (+Click to expand)

FFDG is pleased to present San Francisco based painters and husband and wife duo Ferris Plock and Kelly Tunstall in their second two person show with the gallery entitled “Loading” featuring new mixed media paintings inspired by the transfer of information as recontextualized through the artists unique and personal filter. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, August 16th (7-10pm). Beer and wine will be available.

With minds fine-tuned to the perception of millisecond delays, seconds feel like infinities; a slow network is a robbery of our precious messages, instant pictures, the tenuous threads that connect us, that when severed, make us ever so nervous, scared, if not very very angry. These moments between are indeed a disquieting reality check. To be inaccessible or to be kept waiting is almost to die.

In this instant culture, we look at who is selling, who is buying, and what a search actually is: a reach of a skeleton, waiting to be fleshed in with missing lyrics, skin, muscles, bones. At the end of it all are our ever-hungry hands and eyes, starving for the result of a search sequence, the next delivery to add to our lives, the next bit of like for the status update of one of too many personae; we are always searching and forever loading.

“Loading” is Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock’s wry take on the recent Bay Area tech explosion; a follow up to 2012’s FFDG “Edible Complex” exhibition; a study of San Francisco’s food culture.

About Ferris Plock & Kelly Tunstall

The experimental yet classically grounded work of Ferris Plock and Kelly Tunstall lives comfortably in a space between graphic expression, stylized representation, surrealism, and sketch. Their preferred medium is a combination of acrylic, collage, spray paint, pencil, pen and ink, gold leaf. The binary contrast of masculine and feminine as the major theme in their work is also a very real and personal visual conversation between their imagined realities. Enhanced by complex, delicate layers, their bold pieces exist not only as individual pieces, but as part of larger installations or site-specific works.

Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock live and paint in San Francisco with their two sons. They have exhibited extensively locally, nationally, and internationally both together and separately. Plock and Tunstall recently completed a landmark commission for San Francisco’s Michelin-starred restaurant, SPQR. Tunstall also completed a major body of work to be on view permanently at Oakland’s A16. Tunstall and Plock have worked or are currently working with the San Francisco Arts Commission on their Passport initiative.

Studio Visit & Interview w/ Kelly Tunstall & Ferris Plock
    Thursday, 21 June 2012 /// Written by Trippe

We swung through the home and studio of San Francisco based artists Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock. The married couple are putting the finishing touches on the work for their upcoming food-centric show Edible Complex opening at FFDG on Friday, June 22nd (7-10pm). We spoke of San Francisco's love affair with food, got into their working practices, saw what makes them tick and how they keep up with their lively 2 year old son, Brixton while enjoying a couple Coronas.

@FFDG

Your upcoming show at FFDG, opening on June 22nd, focuses a lot on San Francisco's intense food culture. How do you guys, as a family, fit in? Do you eat out a lot?

Ferris: Well... we order a lot of food in... Having a 2 year old with an attention span of 10 seconds means that when we eat out, we often eat in shifts... We eat a lot in Japantown because our son Brixton really loves to run around there and he loves to eat sushi.

Kelly: We also have a very unique place that we're coming from- being kind of insiders and outsiders of the food bit at this point in our lives. I love so many places, and we've been lucky to be tangentially and directly involved in many efforts.

It's truly a special occasion that we're out for dinner together- and frankly, we're more often grabbing food from a truck at events and stuff, but yeah- a little more out of the loop than I used to be, so it's interesting to see how eating in the Bay Area has shifted in focus and intensity in just the last five years or so.

Do you think San Franciscans are too focused on food?

Ferris: I think everybody is focused on food because we all die if we don't eat.

However, I feel like I have seen enough photoblogs of peoples' food to last me a life time.

Sometimes I feel like our food culture renaissance is a bit like couture... It is based more on concept and pushing the outrageous and less on consumption. Isn't weird there is a cupcake store downtown that puts cupcakes in its windows to show their outrageous culinary inventions... but no one ever eats them? They all get thrown out?

Fashion: Kelly Tunstall in 7X7
    Tuesday, 19 June 2012 /// Written by Trippe

Street Style Report: Local Artist Kelly Tunstall Shows Us Four Spring Looks, in Presidio Heights. <-- You may recognize Kelly Tunstall's artwork from her mermaid murals at Bar Crudo. Or maybe you've come across her work at a local gallery. I first saw her artwork years ago, at 111 Minna, and was instantly charmed. Her whimsical figures and enchanting use of color make her artwork distinct and easily lovable.

I later met Kelly at a party in the Mission, and went gaga over her green Dries Van Noten pumps. It's no surprise that the creator of such lovely pieces of art would have an incredible sense of style, too.

Plock & Tunstall to Support Rise Japan
    Tuesday, 10 April 2012 /// Written by Trippe


Ferris Plock tote bag to help support Rise Japan

Kelly Tunstall and I (Ferris Plock) created illustrations for two tote bags for Rise Japan.

Rise Japan is an organization that is helping raise money for the ongoing support of the people of Japan. I know it isn't front page news anymore but, the people there are still suffering badly and are in need of aid.

Rise Japan asked Kelly Tunstall and I to create designs for tote bags with all the money received going to the relief effort going on in Japan. Kinokuniya Bookstore sponsored the whole run of tote bags which is awesome and can be purchase there too! Please check out the link below if you have time and please repost it to your twitter and facebook accounts if you can. -Ferris Plock

 

Kelly Tunstall @111 Minna
    Friday, 09 September 2011 /// Written by Trippe

Being exhuasted last night, we didn't stay too long at Kelly Tunstall's latest solo show Secret State at 111 Minna. We did though get some photos of her newest paintings.

We'll let some of her PR describe the works. The simplicity of the messages are enhanced by the underlying vitality and complex layering within the work. In her portraits, Tunstall renders stylized female figures and their pets, prey, powers, dreams and whims in symbolic environments: nests built of painted boards held together by drawn nails or far off planets. The physical form and its accompanying exterior become a mirror for internal thought processes and turmoil.

Kelly Tunstall's Secret State Sept 8th
    Wednesday, 24 August 2011 /// Written by Van Edwards

Kelly Tunstall opens the huge solo show Secret State @111 Minna including both very large and very small scale works set for Thursday, September 8th (5-late). w/ DJ ROMANOWSKI

The Secret State examines civilization’s long romance with the examination of the space that we inhabit and our scale within it; the exhibition itself is aimed not at providing any comprehension of our universe’s truths, but instead, at celebrating the joy of discovering new clues to their elaborate puzzles and the spaces between. ~complete details

Bitches Brew Friday @Park Life
    Wednesday, 19 January 2011 /// Written by Trippe

Bitches Brew
Featuring works from: Aiyana Udesen, Hellen Jo, Kelly Tunstall, Marci Washington, and Rebecca Ebeling
@Park Life
Jan 14th - Feb 11th, 2011

This show features five artists from the Bay Area. Although there is a slight connection with figuration, each artist uses that launch point to create wholly different work. Pieces vary from figurative drawings, illustrative paintings, comic renderings, and mix media abstractions. Bitches Brew serves as a bookend to 2010's Bro Palace that featured works by several male artists from the Bay Area's art community. ~VIEW OPENING PHOTOS
