Riccarda de Eccher Interview

November 29, 2023

I grew up in northern Italy, in a city called Udine, about one and a half hour north of Venice. No one in my family had any interest in art, but for some reason I always did. As a teenager, every other year, a friend of mine and I took the train to the Venice Biennale. Back then, I did not have the intellectual tools to understand what I was looking at, but I was curious and interested. Some of the people from my small city would look at the art and say "my five your old son could do that". I kept looking, fighting these prejudices, trying to stay open-minded.

Jeph Gurecka Interview

December 9, 2023

Growing up in a very small and isolated hamlet in the middle of forest drenched western Pa., was by no means a hotbed of creativity and social discourse, let alone skateboarding which I always longed to do. The amount of hills, valleys, and dirt roads was enough to discourage any activities without a motor. As an only child with a plethora of pets ranging from one horse to seventy ducks and pretty much all other genus mixed in between was from what I recall idyllic but there was a sense of foreboding uneasiness. As I developed more formidable thoughts and awareness these creatures lacking intellect became less interesting over the years.


Afterburner is a fearless tour de force and an absolute must see. With nothing like it in the San Diego area, TECHNE stands out as a lush oasis in a very barren landscape. With TECHNE's boldest exhibition to date, curator Chuck Thomas embarks on an ambitious extravaganza that should be both heralded and acknowledged. The abundant supply of color and texture in this show is spectacular.
