Flazh!Alley Art Studio is proud to announce the first California solo exhibit by San Francisco surrealist painter, Craig Poindexter.

Mr. Poindexter presents paintings and light box portraits whose images refer to modern urban landscapes as well as to the iconography of rural family religion. The images speak of endings in the midst of civilized achievement, hesitation amid architectural forms, an aesthetic of impending revelation. This landscape where, as W.B. Yeats wrote, "the best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity, "is a landscape where power has been replaced by mechanics and delight in technical skill has eliminated intellect.

The paintings depict the loss of control which ultimately presages the fire which will prepare for some new dispensation, born, perhaps, of man's freedom to do and know all things; yet what will be done with the freedom is Poindexter's question. As an artist he may be saying, since "The innocent and the beautiful /Have no enemy but time;/Arise and bid me strike a match/And strike another till time catch..."

Extensively exhibited in galleries throughtout the United States including, the Limbo and Wester Hall Galleries in New York City, the Medusa Gallery in Portland, Oregon and the Southern Exposure, Springer-Croke and Tinhorn Public Works Galleries in San Francisco, Poindexter opens his first exhibition in the South Bay at Flazh!Alley Art Studio. Flazh!Alley is excited to be the first gallery in the South Bay to bring Mr. Poindexter's unique visions to a new audience.

TOM ON HIS WORK
"Yes, I consider my work pornography. Pornography means to stimulate peoples' sexual feelings, and I'm always very aware of that. My motive is lower than art." — Tom of Finland from the MSC Finland Website.
