It All Seeped Into the Ground

Through April 19
844-278-7447
It All Seeped Into the Ground
Many of Simon Tran’s (aka ghost ghost teeth) paintings are explosive — both in color and gesture. In his current show at The Compound Gallery (1167 65th St., Oakland), It All Seeped Into the Ground, streaks of paint overlap one another as if ripping through the surface of each panel, forming a density akin to being lost in a rainbow forest. Installed like the scattered panels of a Japanese manga, each of Tran’s paintings stand alone while also cohering into a larger, even more abstract narrative. Pinks, oranges, and greens dominate the story, indicating potential cuteness — yet the compositions are too chaotic to be contained by such a reductive description. Tran is a Vietnamese-American artist whose parents immigrated to America during the Vietnam War. His work is a means of parsing his dual cultural identity. It makes sense, then, that his imagery seems to depict something that is both healthily growing and also going up in flames. Tran will speak more about his work at an artist talk and closing reception on April 19 from 3–6 p.m. Tran’s work is also up in the Worth Ryder Gallery on the UC Berkeley campus for The 2015 Wendy Sussman Prize in Painting Exhibition until April 24.

This Is Real Life

Through April 23
510-444-9140
This Is Real Life
Diedrick Brackens’ current show at Johansson Projects (2300 Telegraph Ave.), entitled This Is Real Life, includes a piece called “10-79” — the police code to notify the coroner. It’s a long, woven tapestry with worn blue, green, and orange stripes running down it. There are white hand marks bleached onto the weaving, with fingers outstretched as if held in the air, or forced onto the sidewalk. The bleach is wiped across the tapestry like the remnants of a struggle. And deep red marks are woven into its stripes, dotting them like open wounds, with extra threads dangling like drops of blood. Brackens’ show features eleven of these woven artworks, which take aesthetic cues from European tapestry, West African weavings, and Southern quilts. Functioning somewhere between painting and sculpture, his weavings take up a technical language of their own that frees the medium from the boundaries of domesticity. Not all of the pieces are as political as “10-79.” Most are much more subtle, defying clear representation. In these, the colors and patterns speak loudest, appearing almost haphazardly, like accidental spilled dye. Brackens manages to imbue a sense of spontaneity in each textile that reimagines the work of a weaver. Free
