New Painting for Music Video Inspired Show!

by ncwinters on October 6, 2011

The show is entitled “I Want my Music Video Art Show”, the theme being pretty self-evident right there in the title. This awesome show, curated by the fantastic Chris Marrs Piliero and David McDowell, will feature several amazing artists, each picking one of their favorite music videos to pay tribute in his or her respective art style.

I chose “Land of Confusion” by Genesis, mostly because it scared the hell out of my as a child. I’d seen the video countless times and the Spitting Image puppets had an amazingly disturbing quality of grotesqueness that was (and is) beautiful in its own unique way. Plus, a little bit of political satire for a video that’s still pretty relevant even today.

The show is at Gallery Meltdown, in Hollywood. They show opens this Friday, October 7th, and runs until October 20th. Many of the artists (including myself) will be in attendance, and it promises to be a fantastic show. Here’s a little bit of early press so far. For full details, click here. Hope to see you there!

Are you planning on releasing prints of “Land of Confusion”? As usual great work that I’d love to see in my home 🙂
