Giant Robot is proud to host Fare Thee Well, a joint show featuring new work by Oakland- and San Francisco-based artists Deth P. Sun and Ferris Plock.
Deth P. Sun’s acrylic paintings on panels bring epic landscapes and cosmic occurrences into a private and personal world. Influenced by David Attenborough, as well as the Moomin series and films of Terry Gilliam, Deth seeks to create a fantasy world as a reflection of his own experiences and worldview. It is a place where cold mountains loom under the stars, cloaked figures arrive with the night, and lone dreamers struggle–a place where hope and belief still shine in dark times. For Fare Thee Well, Sun is making about 100 or so paintings that will be joined by an overarching theme and a new color scheme.
Ferris Plock’s work is primarily character-based imagery that incorporates his passion for storytelling. Based on sketches, his artwork more often than not incorporates animals or monsters in everyday human conditions: going to work, dodging splashes from cars, walking their pets, or some other scenario involving the amazing creatures. Using acrylic, watercolor, spray paint, dip pens with India ink, gold or silver leaf, collage and stains on wood panels, canvas, and found objects, Ferris attempts to build suitable environments in which his subjects can comfortably reside. Plock is creating a new cartoon (Seafarers 3) for the opening and basing 21-28 hand-pulled silk screens on it for the show.
Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based magazine about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with shops and galleries in Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as an online equivalent.
An opening reception for Sun and Plock will take place from 6:30 – 10:00 on Saturday, October 2. For more information about the artists, GR2, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
