Surreal Salon in Baton Rouge!

by ncwinters on January 23, 2013

Baton Rouge, I’m coming for ya!

As you may or may not know, I am the guest juror for this year’s Surreal Salon at Baton Rogue Gallery in Louisiana. I’ll be giving a guest lecture Sunday, January 27 about my thoughts on the show, Pop Surrealism, and my process and art in general. The talk is an informal setting and should hopefully be fun and not just me droning on for half an hour. I’m looking forward to questions afterwards to try and get a decent discussion about the nature of the movement and art making in general. I’m also really looking forward to the food of Louisiana, on my first trip ever. Full details about the show including ticket information here. See you then!

Number 80.

by ncwinters on January 17, 2013

Busy, busy.

Thanks to everyone who purchased a print yesterday. There are still prints of “Fruition” left in the shop. I’m pleased to discover they all have identical appeal, with the same number sold of each variant. I was expecting a clear outlier, just goes to show the value of experimentation!

On to the newest 100 Drawing. Wow, already up to Number 80! I guess “already” isn’t quite the best word, as the project was started a few years ago. It has clearly morphed into something else, as many of you have pointed out, they aren’t so much “drawings” so much as small paintings. I’ll shoot for returning to simpler drawings soon, I promise! This one is entitled “Gilded” and was the first official started and completed in 2013 piece for me. It came after a long bout of sickness, and was my foray to get back into the groove. I’m happy to say I think I found it. Look for a small print release of this one on the horizon. Enjoy!

Gilded
Pen, acrylic and acrylic ink on paper, varnished. 7.25″ x 11.25″ (2013)
Number 80 of 100 Drawings.

Fruition- New Print Release, Three Variants!

by ncwinters on January 15, 2013

First print release of 2013 and it’s a doozy.

I am releasing a print of my recent 100 Drawing “Fruition” and it will be available in three different color permutations: “Scorched,” “Frost,” and “Obsidian.” As a lover of digital in addition to traditional mediums and of course ever experimenting, I want to see how each color variant is received to get a feel for what you guys like. Often when working digitally, the freedom to easily experiment with different color options can be frustrating as there’s usually only one final result required for a particular project. In this case, I get to experiment with a multitude of options.

Each variation will be released in a hand signed and numbered edition of 25. Rather than an edition of 75, each color will have its own run, so this is more like three runs of 25 prints each. Each print is a high-quality archival giclee print on 140 lb. (300 gsm) Entrada Rag Bright White acid-free 100% cotton. The image size is 10.5″ x 12″, printed on a sheet size of 12″ x 14.” Prints are $50 each, plus shipping. All prints are shipped flat. The prints will release Wednesday, January 16. As always, for those interested in getting the earliest numbers in the series or to ensure you don’t miss out on acquiring a print, sign up for the newsletter to get the exact release time. Thanks as always for your support, I’m looking forward to an exciting 2013! Enjoy!
