KQED Gallery Crawl

In January 2010, Gallery Crawl stopped by Gallery Hijinks to learn about the mission behind this new San Francisco art venue, and meet artists Martin Machado and Aleksandra Zee, two of the three artist featured in As It Was Before. Each artist in the show (which includes Todd Freeman) takes cues from his or her personal experiences with the environment, producing imagery that comments on human relationships with the natural world. Freeman makes prints of mythical landscapes and creatures in a style reminiscent of vintage storybook illustrations; Zee's installation juxtaposes natural and manipulated materials; and Machado's paintings and photographs are directly related to his day job as a merchant marine.
