Ten Year Anniversary Show at G1988!

by ncwinters on April 10, 2014

Hard to believe Gallery 1988 has been going strong for ten years!

To celebrate, G1988 has invited several artists to create art for some of their favorite pop cultural themes, but in a subtle way. This Friday, “The Subtle Art of Pop Culture” opens at the Gallery 1988 west location, and the art I’ve seen so far looks incredible. This show will showcase art that has a more subtle nod to various pop culture films, with a heavier emphasis on the art rather than any overt pop culture theme.

I was excited to take on Fight Club again for my painting, with a subtle nod to the main character Jack’s power animal. Mild spoiler alert- it’s a penguin. I also wanted to make a custom frame that went above and beyond my recent hand sculpted frames, and I’m super pleased with how this one turned out.

The show opens at 7PM, and is accessible via RSVP only, as the crowds are expected to be massive. Enjoy!

Another custom framed painting!

This is the last for a bit (I think) while I focus on a few other projects, all of which are very exciting! I’ll definitely be making more custom frames, but for…something else.  More details on all of that soon. For now, enjoy “Hopelessly Anachronistic.”

New Painting: “Licheness,” and Show News.

by ncwinters on March 26, 2014

Exciting news recently fleshed out.

I’ve booked a solo show in New York City at Last Rites Gallery for this coming November! I recently sold my Tarot painting “Sun” there and got the invite, and I couldn’t be more excited. What that means is a ton of new work that will be under embargo, though I’m sure progress shots may still end up on my Instagram feed. In the meantime, I am still an artist that makes and sells artwork for a living, so pieces will still trickle out such as this one for public purchase in order to pay the bills.
Enjoy “Licheness.”
