EMPTE EYES: "just got back fr/ neck's show! It was suprisingly really fun and a really well put together show.
After meeting the "goat killer" himself I found a new respect for Neckface! After seeing some of first tags go up in NYC in 2002, move abroad and come back to the United States of Neckface, seeing him in every publication on the web, magazines and exciting the outsider street art world suprised me to say the least.
Talking with other writers to avg. joe, everyone wants to know who is this guy? and why? It's not neccesarily who he is but what he brings to the table! The raw excitement and youth of the ambitious kid "beat with the ugly stick" reminds us what being motivated and dedicated is all about. Not the talent but the drive. It seems like everyone is striving to be "so" individualistic especially these days, where "SATANS BRIDE" effortlessly came about showed and exemplified what being an individual is really is, that is doing what you believe and not wavering in ambiguoty.
"I feel good about the show, it's all coming together better than I thought." as Neckface should! I was very impressed with the welded car hood installations, his welded masks, collage paintings and his cameo photo op! He turned me into a fan over night reminding me why I started Graf.
The always impressive "Luggage Store Gallery" will continue the exhibit with the amazing "Datefarmer's" duo @ 1007 Market st. @ 6th st. San Francisco wed-sat.12-5 pm until Feb. 5 2005.
