Color.

Been really enjoying this series of work which hinges on the abstract and spontaneous nature of ink flow and other suspended pigments within water on a paper surface. There’s a real joy to only give the mildest direction to the flow of inks on the paper and adjust to the random delightful forms that result. Then it’s a matter of building up washes into thicker layers of acrylic paints but still leaving the wash elements, with all their hard edges of ink blooms to take on various errata textures. I can, and have, just spend hours working on these pieces.

For now, enjoy “Dissociative Qualities of Memory.”

Awwww, so creepy and cute…

Started this little sphynx cat painting a few months ago and broadcasted all progress live on Persicope. In case you weren’t aware, Persicope is a live broadcasting platform where one can take live video of whatever they’re doing and share it with the world, live. I’ve been trying to do more videos of my work, but as I don’t own a decent video camera, I’ve been using Persicope to record what I can with my phone. The catch: the videos aren’t of the highest quality and they are only available online for a day or so. Oh well, that’s what you get for a free service to share events live with your phone!

I wrapped up this little one the other day and have it up in the shop now. Enjoy “Little Pretty.”

Interview on the “Products of the Mind” Podcast.

by ncwinters on February 1, 2016

My first podcast!

products-of-the-mind

You can listen to my interview on Products of the Mind, a podcast about the intersection of business and creativity, created and hosted by a great friend of mine: David Lizerbram. We talk about a range of subjects, including a bit of my artistic history, my entry into the art world and how I’m slowly trying to phase out of making art exclusively about pop culture. And of course, I ramble on about other stuff I’m interested, such as the mind and how headspace-related topics in conjunction with art. Give it a listen, and if you dig it, please give it a rating in iTunes! As I understand it, it really helps with ratings or somesuch for the show. You can listen direct here.
