Preview: Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock’s “Loading” at FFDG

Ferris Plock and Kelly Tunstall are a couple with a sense of humor. Working together in their shared home studio, they spend their days painting and bouncing ideas off one another, kept company by their cats and two young sons. Their painting process is in a state of constant dialogue — intentionally or not, each piece becomes a collaboration. A follow-up to last year's "Edible Complex," which examined the Bay Area's dining culture, their upcoming show, "Loading," at FFDG is a response to the current tech boom in San Francisco. As 22-year-old engineers donning Google Glass become an increasingly common sight in the City, the artists pause to examine the effects of an instant culture obsessed with staying connected. Take a look at some of their recent work after the jump. "Loading" opens August 16.
