Preview: Ferris Plock “The Fake History of The World” ~ Opens June 12th at Daniel Rolnik Gallery

stacked

Ferris Plock is a San Francisco-based artist who will travel south on June 12th to show new work at Daniel Rolnik Gallery. The new show, "The Fake History of the World" caught our eye right off the bat because one of the series of illustrations is "taco vs. pizza," one of the truly pressing conundrums of modern urban life. Plock uses acrylic, watercolor, spray paint, India ink, and collage to create detailed characters that have ranged from animals to people to food to anatomically incorrect human figures. This show is light-hearted and includes pizzas, tacos, tacos vs. pizza, and two characters named Richard and Peter who look like they love to have fun but are actually total dicks.

Q: Yo, Ferris, one quick question before we preview your new show. What's your favorite taco?
A: Seaside Metal in Guernville has my favorite fish tacos.
