If I could shoot laser beams out of my eyes, I would (shoot laser beams out of my eyes).

James Kirkpatrick
Matt Furie
Jon Bocksel

Opening Reception:
Friday, January 8th,
7:00 – 10:00pm
Space 1026 is excited to present an exhibition of paintings and drawings by James Kirkpatrick, Matt Furie and Jon Bocksel. While breaking traditional storytelling techniques, the exhibited works retain motifs of narrative picture-making, challenging the viewer to interpret their own version of truth. United by shared interests in printed ephemera, comic-inspired motifs and graphic compositions, these artists bring three unique visions rich in vibrant color and sophisticated humor to Space 1026 from January 8th through the 29th with an opening reception Friday, January 8th from 7 to 10pm.


James Kirkpatrick resides in London Ontario Canada where he makes a lot of things to look at and to listen to. His paintings, sculpture, installation and sound pieces are inspired by the world around him, underground comics, hobo train art, good food, nice and bad people. Although James likes London Ontario, he enjoys being away from there even more, sharing his art and music wherever he goes.

Matt Furie was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1979. He graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio in 2001. Matt is a leo, he enjoys long walks in the park, bubble baths, and an occasional glass of wine. He currently lives in San Francisco. His comic series “Boy’s Club” is published by Buenaventura Press.

Jon Bocksel paints words, phrases, bricks, crumbling facades, pyramid schemes, and other mundane places. Using type specimens from letterpress catalogs, sign painting books, collected ephemera, and daily observances, Jon paints images on paper to crack jokes and act as topical vantage point. For his work he often picks common words from our vocabulary and embellishes, exaggerates, or at times redefines their meaning, thus creating an examination into our greater surroundings and colloquial digressions.

Kilowatt Ours: A Plan to Re-Energize America

This Sunday, December 6th, Space 1026 will be hosting a FREE SCREENING of Kilowatt Ours: A Plan to Re-Energize America.
A must-see film for everyone concerned about the future of our planet, Kilowatt Ours illuminates the problems we face with energy production, and – unlike many films of its kind – offers immediate everyday solutions, refusing to leave viewers in the dark.

Kilowatt Ours is a documentary by Jeff Barrie that has become a national movement to promote energy conservation, efficiency and renewable energy.
Kilowatt Ours is also a non profit organization advocating for conservation power plants in every community in America. We provide resources for homes, businesses, schools and communities to begin their journey to energy savings.

Informational materials will be included, and refreshments will be served.
