Hobo filmmaker, phototramp Bill Daniel is back on the road with a pop-up photo show comprised of 30 years of 35mm photographs beginning with the early 80s punk scene in Texas, featuring all of your favorite old school punk bands. Daniel has continued to document various sub cultures using the same camera/lens/flash and Kodak Tri-X film for over 30 years. This exhibit, all non-digital darkroom prints, charts a path starting with punk shows in Austin and crawls through various subcultures, from the 90s graffiti scene in San Francisco, freight hopping scenarios, art openings in Los Angeles, house shows in Louisiana, generator shows on the Monongahela River, etc… all seen through Daniel’s signature spelunker style flash-lit vision.


Bill will be joined at Space 1026 with a live musical performance by The Baltimore String Felons  https://www.facebook.com/baltimorestringfelons

“The Baltimore String Felons. Fantastic timelessly weird old American folk music with a punk edge…”

Please Pardon Our Appearance


Opening Reception: Friday, October 3, 2014 / 7-10pm

Exhibition Dates: October 3 – October 29, 2014


Space 1026 is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition, Please Pardon Our  Appearance, by Jacob Lunderby. This exhibition opens Friday, Oct. 3, 2014 with a reception from 7-10 pm.  For this exhibition, Lunderby depicts images of windows that have been digitally modified and layered over enamel paint on wood panel. While the production of work includes the use of digital resources and printing, the artist’s objective is to see the work in a context of painting.

The paintings of windows originate from one of two gestures: blocking out to prevent observation into an interior space, or covering a break to arrest fracturing of the window surface.   As with the vernacular of painting, the images of windows shift between presentation of depth, surface tension and reflectiveness. The marginal materials used as devices to control vision and the sense of precarious formalism found in this meshwork of image and pattern provides a generative model to engage layers of attention, materiality and durations of time, from the context of a restaged image to the life span of a painting.

Through the process of using images that gesture towards methods of concealment, containment and protection, Lunderby uses painting to engage the potential to contain, disrupt or direct vision, and address the image/painting object in its complex relationship to time and context.

Jacob Lunderby is an artist, educator and preparator based in Philadelphia, PA. His recent exhibitions include: Redactor, Pentimenti Gallery, Philadelphia, PA (solo); Cephalopod Interface, Okinawa Prefectural Art Museum, Naha City, Okinawa; Confiscape, Circa Gallery, Minneapolis, MN; The Implication, Emory and Henry College, Emory, VA (solo); Painting Zombies, Regis Center for the Arts, Minneapolis, MN; Heaven on Earth, Little Berlin, Philadelphia, PA; Minnesota Museum of American Art, St. Paul, MN; and more. He received an MFA from the University of Minnesota (2002) and BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design (1998). Lunderby is represented by Pentimenti Gallery, Philadelphia.
