I’ve known Hyland Mather (thelostobject) for many years and we’ve done quite a large number of creative projects together. Beyond the fact that I have always loved Hyland’s, Andenken Gallery, and I admire his own creating styles as an artist, I can also say with confidence that we are good friends. As part of the ongoing project, The Jaunt, I sent Hyland off to Haifa, Israel.  Tonight an exhibition to showcase the Jaunt Forma sculptures that Hyland made in honor of that trip will be on display at the famed Amsterdam local The Garage .    This is the one time that all of these sculptures will be on display before they ship out to their new homes for the collectors who supported the trip.    I caught up with Hyland in advance of the show to talk a bit about this and a bit about that.

Amanda Marie – I Was Just Thinking

White Walls present the first solo exhibition in San Francisco by American painter and stencil artist, Amanda Marie. Amanda plays with stencils and paint to place evocative characters in her work. The childlike illustrations explore deeper, more sophisticated themes of sexuality, envy, elation and greed.

Drawing on illustrations and characters that reference popular mid-20th century children’s books, Amanda has appropriated these ideals of an Americana childhood to her own contemporary devices. Playing with the notions of wholesome American innocence, her characters are then lifted out of context into a surreal state of stasis, dislocating them from their comfortable surroundings.
