Upper Playground in association with FIFTY24SF Gallery is pleased to announce Rubicon Sun, a collaborative show between David Ellis and Doze Green. This exhibit will utilize both the upstairs and downstairs Fifty24SF spaces as the artists create a dynamic installation with limitless boundaries. This show will also coincide with the release of their new 96-page book entitled, "Shaft".

An excerpt from the artists’ press release, written by Tidmore C. Jones:

“For Rubicon Sun, David Ellis and Doze Green present an exhibition they have been training for their entire lives. It’s an installation combining every discipline and material imaginable that weaves drawing, painting, sculpture, music, kinetic movement, sound, light, projection and film. It’s a memorial to a magic porthole filled with trumpets whose signal is now jammed, it’s a glimpse at the last days of the worst four letter word in our vocabulary, and a nod towards a future on the other side of the river that lays down it’s sword and shield and looks again to the sun for wisdom.”

Raised in North Carolina, David Ellis’ work explores music and sound through improvised live painting sessions he calls “motion painting” as well as through kinetic installation. He has exhibited at contemporary art museums and galleries both nationally and internationally.

New York City-native, Doze Green has roots firmly planted in the soil of street culture as a graffiti legend--the “King of Characters”--and as an original member of the Rock Steady Crew. His career in art began in 1974 when he started painting on the streets of NYC and has since seen his work included in many public and private collections across the world.
