Mel Kadel | The Diamond Sea
    Wednesday, 14 November 2012 /// Written by Trippe

The Diamond Sea has concluded at FFDG, but there are some artists we've yet to profile that deserve to be.

Mel Kadel has just wrapped up her solo show Stuck On A Wave in Los Angeles at Merry Karnowsky Gallery and lives in LA where she now resides in a log cabin by the 5 Freeway with her partner, artist Travis Millard (also in The Diamond Sea). If you wanna have a look at their awesome cabin, check our visit from last year.

Location? Age? Education? Website?

Los Angeles, 39, BFA, melkadel.com

How would you describe your work to someone?

It's like an old pillow case, with a narrative.

Influences?

They are all over the place.

Favorite place traveled?

Port Antonio, Jamaica

Working routine? Music? Time of day?

I work every day but the time varies. I start with news radio in the morning, and bounce from music to silence for the rest of the day.

Double Breaks @Double Break
    Tuesday, 06 December 2011 /// Written by Michael C. Hsiung

A few November weekends back, I headed down with Travis Millard and Jim Dirschberger for o Breaks, a group show curated by Jay Howell and Louis Schmidt, which opened 11.11.11 at Double Break store and gallery in San Diego, CA.

The show included over 30 artists including Bill Griffith, Russ Pope, Neil Blender, Mark Whalen, Thomas Campbell, Marco Zamora, Deth Kills, Chris Sullivan, Ruth Swanson, Sean Stout, Rob Helmstetter, Christopher Kardambikis, Rich Bott, Jim Dirschberger, Deth P. Sun, Mel Kadel, REMIO, David Cook, Michael C. Hsiung, Travis Millard, Tim Presley, Ryan Travis Christian, Thomas McMahan, Jay Howell, Louis M. Schmit, Jesse Balmer, Matt Coors, Mark Mulroney, and Ed Templeton.

Hope I got all those sites correct. Anyhow tons of folks showed up for the opening, drank tons at the local bar, 3 out of 4 of us who carpooled together barfed, crashed on Jim's Motel 6 floor, ordered a late pizza, and ran over a ham and cheese sandwich on our way home.

Mike Maxwell stopped by with some presents. Thanks for the cards, zine and shirts.

Mark Whalen next to his piece.

Ed Templeton pieceeeee!

Something exciting just happened and I think I missed it.

Dream Team in Sao Paulo - Part 2
    Monday, 05 December 2011 /// Written by Trippe

San Francisco based Mildred emailed us some photos from a recent trip he and Pacolli took to Sao Paulo, Brazil for the group show Dream Team she curated featuring the likes of Travis Millard, Mel Kadel, Michael Hsiung, Mark Todd, Esther Pearl Watson, Matthew Rodriguez, and many others. Words and photos from Mildred.

Before the show it was pretty much just me and Pacolli painting the whole gallery and doing all the instalations and hanging all the work. lots of shit to be done. I also painted the front of Choque the week after the opening. And we had a little concert at Choque in which I played keyboard and two other folks played guitar and sang. Ephameron went there the day before the opening and did a tape installation as well. During the month we also had a zine/print/shirt sale at Choque as well. It all went very well and we had a blast! -Mildred
