CELEBRITY TRASH by Jason Mecier
INTERNAL-ETERNAL by Begelgeuse
Opening Reception: Friday May 6th 5pm-Late | On Display Through May 28th
Pop Artist Jason Mecier creates one of a kind and outrageous mosaic portraits. He meticulously fabricates anybody out of anything, from Kevin Bacon out of bacon, to Honey Boo Boo out of 25 lbs. of trash. Jason’s artwork has been featured everywhere from Entertainment Weekly to The New York Times, on TV shows like Glee, Rachael Ray and TMZ, as well as music videos by Pink and Pitbull. His portraits are hanging in Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museums, countless celebrity homes, and even in The Playboy Mansion!
Bedelgeuse is an anatomical collage artist. All of the source material used comes from old science and medical books that are in the public domain. He makes both physical cut paper and digital collages that form into a wild amalgamation of botanical, zoological, and anatomical imagery. These compositions produce synergetic visuals that represent humanity’s inherent relationship to nature. Bedelgeuse’s first show in San Francisco, “Internal – Eternal” is a visual representation of wellness, unconditional love, and personal growth.

Wandering the deserted backroads of the American Southwest, Troy Paiva has explored the abandoned underbelly of America since the 1970s. Since 1989 he’s been taking pictures of it . . . at night, by the light of the full moon.
A multi-discipline artist, Troy needed to find a new medium to create personal art while he worked in a heavily art directed graphic design job. Sitting in on a few night photography classes, he had a revelation when the subject of lightpainting came up. Here were techniques that would be perfect for capturing the atmosphere and mystery of the modern ghost towns and sprawling desert junkyards he had been already exploring since he was a teen.
