Painters Chris Crites and Chris Reccardi are having a joint show at Seattle's Roq La Rue Gallery opening tomorrow, Friday June 13.
Reccardi, known in the animation world for his work on Ren and Stimpy, Powerpuff Girls, and Spongebob Squarepants, paints space age daydreams he calls "psy-fi." Crites generated quite a buzz in recent years with his paper bag paintings of vintage mugshots. For this new show, he created an entire series of firearm portraits. They resemble screenprints, but actually each color is hand-painted separately with no overpainting at all. The Roq La Rue show runs until July 5 and all of the work is also viewable online. At top, Reccardi's "Miss Mono" (acrylic on board). Below that, Crites's "M16" (acrylic on pine).
