David Choe on artist Derek WeisbergJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 15 Dec 2010
Derek Weisberg has a show opening at Anno Domini in San Jose, California in February of 2011, but David Choe wanted to say something to introduce Derek to us before the show gets too near.
Weisberg has shown at Space 1026 and Rowan Morrison in the past, and this will be his second show at Anno Domini.
Here is David Choe's words:
i met this kid derek years ago in oakland
he had his art right next door to the korean cultural center
where i would blast on drums,
the people that owned that gallery would always complain about the
noise. and i was all like whatever art fags, and would never go in there, but then one day
i did and saw derek's three dimensional ceramic masterpieces and was blown away,
the hands, the faces, the gestures, he was doing in scuplture what i loved about paintings
he was able to capture a real human expressions and experience through his work, and immediately i wanted to trade art with him,
if your in the bay go check out derek , his art keeps getting better. but dont touch it, it's fragile
you break it you buy it
