H/D Front Porch is proud to present Joe Penrod.
Joe Penrod captures the temporary beauty of shadows through the use of tape. He documents spatial relationships between objects and time of day by “tracing” or “coloring in” the shapes of cast shadows with common painter’s blue masking tape.
H/D Front Porch is proud to present Jordan Tull.
“I create visceral and provocative sculptures and installations to unnerve the primal space of the mind. My work is a reassertion of my belief that visual perception guides our fundamental curiosities and desires. Similar to the way we intuit beauty from classical proportions, my collective body of work is an iteration of architectural language.”
This month in Half/Dozen Gallery’s Front Porch space, Alex Rouch contemplates white. We have 3 essays given to us by Alex as an aid to his piece. This piece will be up through November 1st.

Analytical Aspects of the Easterlin Paradox
by Kenneth Burke
At Half/Dozen Gallery this first Thursday holds an opening of a new Front Porch project. Benjamin Young who is a Portland Native, uses his process and material as a conduit to communicate with his audience. The complexity of material is as important as the underlying concept, yet he is willing to let, for this specific show, this black plastic degrade in the elements of the Portland weather and Old Towns night life.
H/D Front Porch is proud to present Derek Faust.
“Looking at the way we store information can be a portal into looking at how we perceive ourselves. From the processes we use to infuse materials with data, to the way we archive information, we distinctly value some information more than others. My work grapples with these information systems through an investigation of their physical and visual language. Be it a dot and dash of Morse code or the notched holes inside a cassette tape there is a language that has a direct lineage to our own self-image.”
H/D Front Porch is proud to present Kendra Larson
“My paintings are a discovery of an unforeseen sense of place and a questioning of perception. Though I am working within the grand tradition of landscape painting, there is a point where I draw out and highlight the material properties of paint through shifting its application.“
