Pop Perspective

Matt and Miles Ritchie

January 6 - 27, 2018

 

SPOKE SF is pleased to present Pop Perspective, a dual artist exhibition featuring new work by Matt & Miles Ritchie. For their debut exhibition together, this father and son duo has created a fun and affordable pop culture experience featuring hand cut and painted wooden sculptures and paintings complimenting their two distinct artistic styles.

Ranging from the Avengers to Zelda, Pop Perspective is a comprehensive pop culture survey from the perspective of two different generations. Sharing a mutual love for comics, film, TV, music, video games and everything pop, Matt & Miles Ritchie distill their favorite characters and icons into crisply crafted and dimensional pieces.

Matt Ritchie’s colorful painted wood pieces explore individual characters and their iconic accouterments, concentrating on the immediately recognizable essentials. His slump series is “an exhausted look at exhausted pop,” celebrating the artist’s deep love for pop culture and commenting on the ubiquitous over saturation of each franchise.  Where his Dad’s perspective is steeped in decades of fandom, Miles Ritchie is presenting beloved characters with fresh eyes. Simplifying and refining many of the same characters, the younger Ritchie takes a more minimal approach to rendering his “Pop Ply Portraits” using only natural wood and shadow.

Please join us for Pop Perspective, opening Saturday, January 6th, with an opening night reception from 6pm - 9pm where both artists will be present. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, January 27th.  For more information or additional images, please email us at SF@spoke-art.com.
