First Works of 2015!

by ncwinters on January 6, 2015

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone’s holidays were merry. The new year got off to a slightly rocky start on this end due to some slightly overzealous celebrating on the last day of last year. Ahem. But I’m back and have hit the ground running. Many new projects, and an onslaught of new work coming your way. One of my goals this year is at least one video, and hopefully several uploaded to the YouTubez for your viewing pleasure. I’m going to try and buckle down and get back to making smaller affordable pieces more often to both hone my skills, and well, pay the bills. Hope you’re with me for the ride!

I’ve been experimenting with new ink and color techniques. It’s an enjoyable exercise, forcing me to stretch my wings and push through barriers. There is much work to do, but I am enjoying the early progress. More to come on this front for 2015. The first few pieces are clowns. For some reason, I can’t seem to keep clowns out of my work over the years. To some, they are beloved, to many they are feared. I always felt a strange sadness about them. In any case, here are a few for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

New Works! Some of the Last of 2014!

by ncwinters on December 29, 2014

Wrapping up a few more works from 2014.

Here’s a couple that have been on the burner. “Broken Jetsam Redux” is the result of a recent delve into reworking old print remnants that accumulate around the studio. Prints are an interesting paradox, as they serve as a lingering reminder of old work. Print fragments, damaged prints or other print experiments loiter around often past the initial inspiration, and can force new perspective on a finished idea. They’re also a rewarding way to revisit older themes with new technical and emotional directions. In any case, here is one case of that. I’m sure it won’t be the last, they are  intriguing studies to make.

The second piece, “Vincent” is one of many new directions I’m tackling for the new year. Look for similar works on the horizon as I further experiment with color, form and the ubiquitous visage of the human face. Enjoy!

New Painting: “Natural Selection.”

by ncwinters on December 26, 2014

Hope everyone’s holidays were merry!

In wrapping up the last bits from 2014, I have a few more small pieces that will be available in the shop in the next few days. The first is “Natural Selection” a small painting that was one of the first studies for my recent “Overgrowth” show which will be on view at Last Rites Gallery until tomorrow. I hope to have more for you soon as I come up from the holidays. Best wishes to everyone for the rest of 2014 and a prosperous 2015!
