Yonder shop is a well designed space with unique, lovely, approachably designed items for your home, yourself, and your family. Every object in the store is selected because it has a story to tell. The approach is it's either well-designed, handmade, useful, beautiful, often all of the above. The aesthetic is modern while remaining warm and inviting.  There is a selection of the most contemporary makers in ceramics, mine and many others, and so much more to be explored and enjoyed. I am committed to being continually on the hunt for inspiring designers/makers who have a passion for what they do.

The storefront space was designed for flexibility.  Imagine a gathering place able to host monthly events showcasing great talent, gallery shows, and community events workshops, and trunk shows.

STILL LIFE WORKSHOP - EMILIO VILLALBA FEB 16

150.00

Still Life Painting Workshop — Saturday, FEB 16th 1 - 5pm

Emilio Villalba lives in San Francisco and teaches in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. He is formally a portrait painter, but his recent series of paintings explores abstracted subjects telling stories of the artist’s life blurring still life and portraiture. You can find out more about his work at EmilioVallalbaart.com

Emilio will be focusing his considerable skills on still life for this workshop. He will set up a still life scene with pieces pulled from the shop. Emilio will do a demo, teaching intro to painting basics of the subject matter covering his take on form , light and shadow. This class is designed for all levels — so. beginners are encouraged. I have taken a number of painting classes from Emilio and can attest he is an extraordinary instructor for all levels. We are excited to have him in our studio to discover pottery and other forms from a new perspective.

Statement

In the most basic sense, I paint portraits. Contemporary representations inspired by master works of the past.

With these pieces, I wanted to explore a kind of omnipresent pressure I think we all live under. One that grows out of the clash between humanity —our unique mess of emotions, obsessions and urges—and society’s prescription for success.

I’ve always been fascinated by the mess.

The new visuals are a nod to the modern art aesthetic. Subtle shifts, repetition, (re)placement, or absence of facial features are attempts to create a feeling of dissonance and pressure in the viewer. I want someone to be drawn in by the uncanny nature of a piece and still feel safe to explore the feelings and reactions the pressure gives rise to.
