Here is a quick preview video of my solo exhibition “Innovations in Obsolescence” opening this Saturday, October 21 from 6-9 PM at Lost & Foundry Gallery 305 Center Street, Oakland CA.
Stag Beetle (48″ x 38″ x 18″)
Aircraft components, Elk antlers, dough mixers, peacock feathers, conveyor brush, massage motor, LEDs, and a whole lotta creepy.
I’m just sharing these images as teasers for my show coming up on October 21. Check back for better documentation of this sculpture, and many, many others in the coming weeks.
Tired of looking at pictures on the internet? Try looking at a real book!
This book is a survey of some of my favorite pieces from over the years 2000-2016. Currently 80 pages in length, this catalog is updated roughly annually as new work is produced.
Im very excited to announce that I’ll be having a solo exhibition in the gallery at Lost & Foundry Oakland, 305 Center Street, Oakland CA on October 21st from 6-9PM.
I’ve been developing this body of work over the last year, and as I write this I have 17 new pieces and counting! I’m pretty sure I’ve never had so many pieces on display at one time (I’ll have some older work installed too). If that isn’t enticing enough, my studio is in the adjoining building, so this will be an open studio event as well.
If you’re in the Oakland area, please come and experience this new work and the materials and processes that went into producing it.
Facebook event here.
On October 22, 2016 my first solo show in many years “Parts & Labor” opened at the On-Sight Project in Oakland, CA. It was an honor to get to share this collection of work with so many enthusiastic people, in such a beautiful space.
Many thanks to Anja Ulfeldt for curating, and for taking the majority of these photos.
Below are a few highlights, click here to see a full slideshow.
Please join me for my first solo exhibition in many years! This will likely be the last time my giant shark sculpture “Megalodon” will be on display on the West Coast before it ships East. I’ll also have an entirely new body of work to share, alongside some old favorites (more images to follow soon). Curated by Anja Ulfeldt, The On-Sight Project is a mobile pop-up venue converting vacant commercial real estate into exhibition space for local artists.
Opening reception is Saturday, October 22 from 6-9 PM at 471 9th street, Oakland CA.
The gallery will be open Fridays 10-2, Saturdays 1-4, or you can contact me to make an appointment. Show closes November 12.
Its been a few years now since I had Chris Siracuse in my studio for the filming of this project. Now that its made the film festival circuit we’re ready to share it online! Please take a minute (or 9 minutes and 24 seconds) and experience his insight into my work and process. Of particular interest are the scenes of the very first stages of my Megalodon sculpture. It was a major effort, and I’m grateful to have this document.
You can view the entire film here.
In honor of its fortieth year, SCRAP is excited to present Reclaimed: Elevating the Art of Reuse, a juried art exhibition that will run from October 1 through October 23 and proudly hosted by the San Francisco Arts Education Project (SFArtsED) gallery, located in the Minnesota Street Project. Gallery hours are 11:00-5:00 Tuesday-Saturday
October 8 1:00-4:00
An artist’s reception, open to the public, will be held on Saturday, October 8 from 1pm-4pm at the SFArtsEd gallery.
I’m really pleased to finally be able to share images and video of “Megalodon” in its finished state! Shown here are a few examples, click below for the full story:
Big thanks to Chris Potter for the video, and my father Arthur Gould for the soundtrack!
I recently had the honor of hosting the team from Discovery VR and conducting a short interview with Dr. Mike North in my studio. This immersive video technology provides a pretty unique way to snoop around my shop and get a preview of my new piece “Megalodon” which debuts at Heron arts on April 16.
Viewing VR takes a little getting used to, and experiences vary depending on what kind of device you watch it on. From a desktop computer you can pan around each scene with your mouse while its playing. If you download their mobile app you can peer around simply by moving your phone.

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be displaying my new sculpture “Megalodon” at Heron Arts in San Francisco on April 16. The piece will be a part of the group show “Perpetual Motion” which features an international cast of Automata makers, all of whom I’m honored to be associated with.
I’ll be working down to the last minute to prepare, but for the moment, here are a few teaser images of the piece in its final stages of development:
The exterior is pretty much finished, but the real action happens on the other side. The viewer will be able to peer inside to see the inner workings of this beast!
The project grew out of a discarded wing mounted fuel tank from a F-94 bomber plane. I feel that this true war machine DNA has carried over into the final project.
If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, mark your calendar:
This coming Saturday, December 12th I will have my studio open from 5-7PM in conjunction with the exhibit “Something for Everyone” which will be opening next door in the Lost & Foundry Gallery at the same time. If you are in the area, please come by:
305 Center Street, Oakland CA 94607
I’m pleased to have finally finished my latest commission: “Hypertensive“. It was a long road, but I’m really happy with the results. Please be sure to view the video below for the full effect.
This piece serves to diffuse tension and anxiety in the user. When the hand held timer is activated, bad energy flows through the cord and is safely converted into various forms of kinetic energy such as electricity, air pressure, heat, sound, light, rotational force, etc.
Dimensions: 31″ x 21″ x 16″
Cooking pot, bell jar, amperage meter, blood pressure gauges, pump, X-ray timer, projector parts, neon sign transformer, phenolic, aluminum, brass.
Be sure to join us for our next exhibit and open house at Lost & Foundry (305 Center Street, Oakland CA, half a block from West Oakland BART) on the evening of Saturday, February 28 from 4 – 8 PM. The gallery will have new works by some of our resident artists:
In addition to the amazing art that we’ll have on display, we are also organizing a “Resource Allocation” Junk Sale and Stuff Giveaway… because… well… we’ve just got too much stuff…
We’ve got random cool objects sitting around our studios that we’re just not sure what to do with… but maybe you do?
Tools, brick-n-brack, found objects, unwanted film flam!
We’re purging our studios so come check out what we’ve got and take some of it home with you.
Cash only please…
