In 1998, The Source placed Strictly Business on its 100 Best Rap Albums list and included two of its singles on its 100 Best Rap Singles list. In 1999, it was judged to be the 4th-best hip hop album of 1988 by ego trip. In 2001, Dance de Lux ranked Strictly Business as the 11th-best hip hop record of all time. In 2003, the album was placed on Blender’s 500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die list and ranked number 459 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Additionally, the Rolling Stone Album Guide, which initially rated the album as three and a half stars out of five, awarded the album with a five-star rating in 2004. Retrospective reviews by Spin (1995), the Virgin Encyclopedia of Popular Music (2002), Martin C. Strong (2004), and Sputnikmusic (2006) have respectively allotted the album a nine-out-of-10 rating, a four-star rating, a five-star rating and a seven-out-of-10 rating. Strictly Business is now widely considered to be a classic release and a seminal hip hop album.

“The Reverse is Also True" is a collection of recent acrylic paintings based on the practice of working daily in a sketchbook. The paintings in the show intend to capture the energy and immediacy of images and ideas recorded daily in Pommier's sketchbook and strives to echo the act of leafing through it's pages. 

 

(The pieces will be for sale. There will be a collection of small/affordable works. The price for the majority of the work will easily be below $500. Start saving everybody!)

Fortune Sound Club

147 East Pender Street

Doors 9pm / 19+

Followed by Rat Fist & Brass (9-11pm) and Z-Trip (11-2am)

Andrew Pommier's work is a mixture of the cute and the "it's funny because it is sad." It's work that speaks about the outsider: a lone figure that has chosen to remove himself from the day-to-day, by outwardly displaying his inner thoughts of detachment and singularity. People that spend their days in costumes that once made sense in their lives, as if mascots for disbanded sports teams, now refusing to return the outfits and no longer sure how to live without them.

Pommier uses very graphic inspired techniques. Bold lines, which are informed by a youth spent watching cartoons and reading comic books. Pommier mines the world of his youth much like the Japanese artists Yoshimoto Nara and Aya Takano but he also finds inspiration in classic works such as Manet's "The Fifer" and his Beggar-Philosopher series.

Most of his creative output begins within the pages of a sketchbook. In the past few years he has started to introduce more drawing elements into both his watercolors and also in his larger paintings. The pencil line within the completed pieces translates an energy and an honesty of construction. The viewer can see the process involved in getting to a completed painting and this is laid bare in his recent work.

Pommier has crissed crossed from commercial work for such companies as Virgin Mobile and Toy Machine Skateboards to the gallery world were he has shown in far afield places such as Australia and Germany to much closer locations such as Toronto and Denver as well as LA and New York.
