Opening tonight at San Francisco’s Needles and Pens is “Clutter,” a solo exhibition by Troy Lovegates aka OTHER. “Clutter” is a selection of assorted work created in his new California home and along his journeys. A frequent traveller, Lovegates paints and draws the people he encounters. Elegant old men and women who live simpler lives pervade his work with tidbits of his own doodles, resulting in a beautiful stew of life on the road. Recently relocated to the Bay Area, Lovegates now draws inspiration from the people in his neighborhood, the eclectic and gritty Tenderloin.
