We’re on a road trip this Summer, going up the west coast chasing the Sun north. Here is a particularly awesome sunset from Kalaloch Beach in Olympic National Park while we finished up a new painting. We’ll be in the Seattle area for a few weeks checking out what the pacific north west has to offer.
We were happy to share our animated paintings with Dan, and talk a little bit about how they are created in order to share the experience of altered states of consciousness that most people will never get to experience in their adult lives. He asks, “So this is the artist version of an acid trip?” and Nate answers, “Quite literally yes.”
We are so blessed to have been included in the opening of Sananda Gallery at Full Circle Venice. Our dear friend and amazing curator Liana Sananda’s new gallery in partnership with Full Circle have put together an amazing space and an even greater collection of contemporary and visionary art.
Our original paintings are installed there and available for sale. We have a few smaller originals as well that work with our augmented reality app like the larger ones in the temple upstairs.
We set our projection mapped paintings up at SOhO in Santa Barbara for the Nomads Nook fundraiser Lucidity Festival pre party. We’re looking forward to having them at Lucidity Festival April 11-14.
We’re finally back in Santa Barbara after a whirlwind through the Southwest that brought us to Tucson for Gem and Jam Festival this past week. What an incredible experience it is to share our animated paintings with our community and to see and hear your reactions. With the help of our friends at Digital Permaculture and the new 20′ dome they built for our gallery space we created the first iteration of Mono Amor Gallery in physical space.
We met some amazing artists and spent as much time as we possibly could with friends from all over the country surrounding one of the most amazing Gem Show’s in the world. During the Tucson Gem Show, the entire city of Tucson is transformed into a Gem, Crystal, Fossil and Mineral bonanza. Gem and Jam Festival sold out Saturday night for the first time in 4 years and was a fury of excitement! We picked up so many new crystals we’re not quite sure what to do with them all yet. You may see something very exciting from us later this week involving crystals and a projector!
Thanks to everyone who joined us in Hollywood this past Friday Jan 16 for Re:creation Gem and Jam Pre-Party. We got to meet a lot of new people and enjoyed some amazing conversation. We’re looking forward to Gem and Jam Festival next month in Tucson where we’ll have the Mono Amor Gallery of projection mapped paintings and prints to sell.
