New Painting: “System Update.”

by ncwinters on December 16, 2014

Another new small painting, available for purchase!

This one is a bit of a biomechanical sort of thing, fun to make, with more in this vein in the future, most likely. Don’t forget that the FESTIVUS sale is still going on, all month long! Enjoy!

“Low Key Resplendent” -New Art.

by ncwinters on December 15, 2014

After a brief out of commission sting with a failed hard drive, I’m back with a new small painting available for purchase!

“Low Key Resplendent” is a painting that has been building for awhile, and has finally come to completion. Layers of acrylic ink washes and then thin washes of acrylic have been put down to build up the subtle tones of this piece. I’m pleased with the result, as well as a new direction of leaving more areas less than 100% over rendered. Hopefully you dig it as well. Enjoy!

Crazy 4 Cult 8 – Back in LA!

by ncwinters on December 11, 2014

It’s back again!

The eighth annual Crazy 4 Cult show at Gallery 1988 has returned. After a brief stint in New York, it’s back in Los Angeles, and I’m (as always) honored to be included in the roster. For this year’s submission, I went after a piece I’ve been itching to do for years. As an avid fan of David Lynch’s 1984 imagining of Dune, I could never shake his gruesome version of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (played by Kenneth McMillan). Cult seemed like the perfect venue to tackle this portrait, and I’m super pleased with how it turned out. The painting is a layered mix of colored inks and acrylics all suspended in various layers of gel medium on paper. This piece has my traditional resin coating and is mounted to a cradled wood panel. I’ve been enjoying experimenting with various forms of translucency and will dive deeper into this approach in the new year.

The show opens Friday, December 12 at the G1988 West location (7308 Melrose Avenue). Enjoy!
