So during the free art event at the Oakland Art Murmur on Friday, I went around to some of the galleries. The best show of the night was at the Hatch Gallery.
Ross Cambell and Jeremiah Jenkins
I thought everything in the show was very very clever, everything was humorous yet serious at the same time. There wasn't a statement of any kind for the show but my impression was- the impact of western ideals, for example- the samurai helmet made out of american tools- the baseball- grenades. There was also a credit card- mouse trap. Everything was a mix of two different objects- that make one object, maybe the artists are trying to say the two are not so different?
