…Crazy 4 Cult is back!


This year’s Crazy 4 Cult show is expected to be the best ever. Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier (of Clerks fame) host the show at Gallery 1988, and the evening promises to be full of great art, and references to some of everyone’s favorite cult classic movies. My take this year is from one of my favorites: The Big Lebowski. Maude gets her due as the dream sequence Valkyrie under delicious double-coated resin. The painting is pretty large, one of my largest on paper to date, and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. We’ll be in attendance for the opening, this Friday, July 9th from 7-10PM. Hope to see you all there!

New art and an upcoming new show…

by ncwinters on May 25, 2010

…save the proverbial date!

First up, I’ll have a painting in C.A.V.E. Gallery‘s upcoming two-year anniversary show: “Repeat Offenders” show.  The show opens June 4th at 7PM and goes until 11PM. It’s also a benefits show, for “Haiti Healing Arts” with 20% of all proceeds to fund ICAF’s Art Therapy program for child victims of the earthquake that ravaged Haiti.


“Inner Sanctum”

The piece was a fun one to do, working it in around my upcoming solo show in September at Subtext Gallery. It’s a continuation of the recent themes I’ve been playing with, all pieces acrylic on paper, mounted to wood and of course, smothered in resin. I’m more comfortable painting now than I’ve been in quite awhile, which is not to say that I certainly don’t have room for improvement. I’m always striving to get better, and getting into a painting zone has become more…challenging lately with the birth of Jackson. Anyway, mark your calendars, the show opens Friday, September 10th at Subtext Gallery in downtown San Diego. Look for my ad in the July issue of Hi-Fructose magazine. Enjoy!




New artwork and last minute show update!

by ncwinters on February 26, 2010

I wanted to be more timely with my updates for the new year, but it looks like 2010 won’t be bringing that resolution to pass.

The show is Night of the Nick Nacks, tomorrow night at Gallery Meltdown in Los Angeles. Artists were asked to create works inspired by the movie Return to Oz and the books of L. Frank Baum. While I hadn’t seen the movie in ages, without a doubt I had to go with Tik Tok. This is another painting on paper, mounted to wood, and I really think I’ve found my groove in this medium.

Opening Reception: February 27, 2010, 6-10pm. Exhibition runs through March 23, 2010. Hope to see you at the show!
