New Art Purchase

May 8, 2012 at 5:10 AM 6 comments

This past Friday was my brother’s birthday and so Graham and I headed over to Oakland (where he and his wife live) for a birthday dinner and an evening out at the Oakland Art Murmur.

While, walking the galleries, all four of us fell in love with artist, Evan Holm’s work.  He works with plaster and makes imprints from cast off objects.  For instance, here is a whole wall of old records which he has imprinted on plaster.

The entire grid was very impressive and would be the absolutely coolest on a huge loft wall of a bachelor pad.  To all young bachelors out there that need somebody to pimp out their SoMa loft – think of me!!  First thing I’ll put up is some Evan Holm pieces.  I’m thinking this car…

It was so much cooler in person too.  It’s a totaled impala and a very large piece – the scale alone was so impressive.

I really loved this piece for a bathroom

His more abstract art was also amazing

He also makes really fascinating sculptures.  I’d love to put this stool in a home.

Joe and Bridget purchased one of his records and Graham and I bought a series of three of his records.  We don’t get to retrieve them until the show is over on June 30th.  Once their hung up in our house, I’ll be sure to share.

If you’re looking for really good, affordable, awesome art, I highly recommend Oakland Art Murmur, which occurs the first Friday of every month.

    Is the crashed Impala a triptych? It is really awsome, would LOVE to see it in person; I’ll rearch. Thanks for introducing me to Evan’s work; excellent!

    Such a unique artist. Where is the series of records headed in your home, Kate?

      That’s the million dollar question. 🙂 We’re thinking the kitchen but it’s still a little up in the air.
