49 Geary Streeet, Suite 202
San Francisco, CA 94108
A visit to 49 Geary on a First Thursday is much like trick-r-treating. Except, most of the time, the galleries are handing out pencils instead of candy. Thankfully, this month, there's plenty of gum drops to go around, and Mark Wolfe is handing them out in buckets. Needless to say, Jeremy Mora's work is just plain cool.
I first noticed the balloons and thought it was the usual 49 Geary flair. But then I saw the little island underneath. Very curious.

My friend James goes in for a closer look.
Amazing amounts of detail. I love the intimacy of these miniatures.
I always thought it would be awesome to have a tree house.
Each one is like a little island in the gallery.
I think my favorite thing about these is how much they appeal to my inner child. They're playful, and fun. They also remind me that I'm due for a vacation.
Jeremy stoops down to adjust the chair.
Never mind, I think my favorite thing is the scale (and detail) of these pieces. They're just so darned cute!
Jeremy Mora was a cool guy to chat with. He also runs POV Evolving Gallery down in LA.
Over all, a great show. There's so much detail it's difficult to flatter the work with photographs. If you can't make it to the gallery, however, check out Mark Wolfe Contemporary for an artist interview and more pics of Jeremy Mora's work.
