BushwickBK.com :: Review :: Un Named Rottens [10 Jul 2008|10:07am]

Back to Bushwick, Factory Fresh

Posted by Anna D'Agrosa on July 8th, 2008
Categories: Art and Artists, Bushwick Culture

My friend Nicole ventured out of Manhattan to sightsee in Bushwick this weekend — practically her first visit since she lived in the Moore St. lofts 5 years ago. It was the perfect opportunity to show off the Jefferson stop area and “Morgantown.” We started off with a swing by the best coffee shop on earth, and rounded the corner to the famed tacos of Starr Street (open on weekends now!) and she was of course already amazed. We then stopped and each got a dress at Urban Jungle Vintage — then on to the main attraction: Factory Fresh.

Their current show, Un Named Rottens, “showcases works that look at the primal side of the human psyche and its relation to us in the modern society” and features new works by New York-based artists Beau Velasco, Daniel St. George II, and Jeremiah Maddock. Co-founder Ali Ha came from the backyard when we came in and reported that the opening (scroll down for pics) had been successful and that they actually get more foot traffic for openings here in their new spot on Flushing Ave than they did on Orchard Street in the LES!

We were both blown away by Jeremiah Maddock’s intricate drawings and Ali told us that as a child, writing utensils had to be taken away from him or he would draw on anything and everything. Daniel Anthony St. George II (aka AZstar78) displayed text and image collages made on (really amazing) found paper; copies of his recent zine “The Royal We” are available at the gallery. Painter/tattoo artist/noise band co-founder Beau Velasco’s pieces were a great contrast to Maddock’s “musical hieroglyphics” (as perfectly described in his bio). Factory Fresh delivers again. We swung by Moore Street to take a peek at Roberta’s — and the Saturday tour was complete.

UN NAMED ROTTENS
New works by Beau Velasco, Daniel St. George, and Jeremiah Maddock
June 28 – July 21, 2008
Reception: Saturday, June 28th from 6-11pm

Factory Fresh is proud to present the collaborative exhibition, Un Named Rottens.  Featuring new works from New York-based artists Beau Velasco, Daniel St. George II, and Jeremiah Maddock, Un Named Rottens will showcase works that look at the primal side of the human psyche and its relation to modern society.

An artist with no formal training, Beau Velasco grew up on a farm in the Australian outback. In his early 20’s, he moved to the US to pursue Noise/Pop music with his sometimes band, The DeathSet.  While working as a tattoo artist in Harlem, Velasco is constantly creating new art and writing music for his new band, Giantize. Beau Velasco currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Daniel St. George II visually narrates his life through writing, cryptic symbolism, and popular cultural imagery.  As he creates his own mythology, St. George redefines the context of how things are viewed in relation to one another; he embraces the ideas of rejection and loss.  His works juxtapose images with text, creating a new relationship between the two.  Struggling with the idea of what it is to be human - selfish, scared, loving, and rejected, his new work is done on found, stolen, or discarded paper and objects. A resident of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Daniel St. George II attended Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida.

Jeremiah Maddock's latest body of work is an example of his ever-expanding visual narrative.  Having recently relocated to Brooklyn, NY from the rural Washington woodlands, Maddock found himself among the emerging creators of the New York art scene.  His works are an attempt to create the purest expression of existence, totally free from external conditioning and undefiled by compromise.  His language is a crystal-clear spring flowing with Machiavellian-like "musical hieroglyphics."  At times disconcerting, his works possess a certain candor and delve into the perception of the supernatural.

A new contemporary art space in up-and-coming Bushwick, Brooklyn, Factory Fresh was founded by Ali Ha and Ad Devillle of Skewville, the former owners and curators of Orchard Street Art Gallery.  The opening reception for Un Named Rottens will be held at Factory Fresh, located at 1053 Flushing Avenue (corner of Vandervoort Place) on Friday, June 26th from 6pm-10pm.  Via subway: Take the “L” train to the “Morgan” stop. The show runs through July 27th.

note: The Un Named Rottens show is approching quickly I'm working on 6 or more large pieces for the show as well as a group show with Andenken Gallery in Denver. June is going to be a month. I'm going to have to drop my larger paintings off to be photographed and documented as they get finished then framed them. I moved into Queens (Sunnyside) to be closer to my studio.

Un Named Rottens [08 May 2008|07:32pm]
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Un Named Rottens

New works by Beau Velasco, Daniel St. George, and Jeremiah Maddock
June 28 – July 21, 2008
Reception: Saturday, June 28th from 6-11pm

Factory Fresh is proud to present a collaborative exhibition Un Named Rottens, featuring new works from New York-based artists Beau Velasco, Daniel St. George 2nd, and Jeremiah Maddock. Un Named Rottens will showcase works that look at the primal side of the human psyche and its relation to us in the modern society. The three artists share similar views on how they view the world, as well as a dark, humorous, and, at times, cryptic visual narrative.

Beau Velasco is an artist with no formal training now living and working Brooklyn, New York. Beau grew up on rural farms in the Australian outback & in his early 20s he moved to Untied States in order to future pursue Noise-Pop music with his sometimes band The DeathSet. Velasco is currently tattooing in Harlem while constantly creating new art and writing music for his new band Giantize. When asked about his art Beau replies "Fuck you, I love you. " This is his message for the world today.

Daniel Anthony St. George 2nd visually narrates his own life through writing, cryptic symbolism, and popular culture imagery while he creates his own mythology and redefines the context of how things are viewed in relation to one another. His works juxtapose images with text creating a new relationship between the two. He struggles with the idea of what it is to be human -- selfish, scared, loving, and rejected. In his new work on found, stolen, discarded paper, and objects, he embraces the ideas of rejection and loss. Currently living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Daniel St. George attended Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida but never finished his degree.

Jeremiah Maddock’s latest body of work is an expansion of past works and his ever expanding narrative. Maddock has recently moved to Brooklyn from his rural life in the Washington woodlands to find himself among the emerging artists of the New York art scene. Maddock’s works are his own attempts to create the purest expression of existence, totally free from external conditioning and undefiled by compromise. His language is a crystal-clear spring flowing with Machiavellian-like "musical hieroglyphics.” At times disconcerting, his works possess a certain candor and delve into the perception of the supernatural in every form.

Factory Fresh is a new contemporary space in up-and-coming Bushwick, Brooklyn. It was founded by Ali Ha and Ad Devillle of Skewville, the former owners and curators of Orchard Street Art Gallery. The new space allows them to put on larger and more expansive shows than the previous space. Factory Fresh aims to bring works from the brightest and smartest artists from around the world.

The opening reception for Un Named Rottens will be held at Factory Fresh located at 1053 Flushing Avenue (corner of Vandervoort Place) on Friday, June 26th from 6pm to 10pm. Take the L train to Morgan stop via subway. The show runs until July 27th. For more information and gallery hours please contact Ali Ha at: 917-682-6753 or visit http://www.factoryfresh.net
