A Little Knotty and Dead Inventors opening

We would love to thank everyone who came out for the opening last Friday! It was a fantastic evening with tons of wonderful work by Dave Cooper and Troy Nixey. This was our first opening of the year and a great way to kick it off! We are very excited about showing with both of these awesome artists. This just happend to be Troy Nixey's first art show ever too! It is long overdue and we are overjoyed to have been a part of it.

Dave Cooper made a name for himself as an underground comicbook artist in the '90s with his graphic novels, "Suckle", "Crumple", "Dan+Larry", and "Completely Pip and Norton". Near the end of the 90s, with the release of his Fantagraphics Books series "Weasel" and subsequently, the graphic novel, "Ripple" Dave established his position in the field. The critical acclaim and general notoriety that his work attracted during this time lead to many interesting opportunities in toy design, fine art printmaking, animation design, illustration, and screenwriting. At the turn of the century Dave turned his attention toward oil painting. He's since had a number of successful, high profile solo shows in Los Angeles, New York, and Paris.

Troy Nixey is well known as an illustrator/writer of comic books. Notable comics include “Batman: The Doom that Came to Gotham,” “Batman: The Gasworks,” “It’s only the End of the World Again,” “Grendel: Black, White and Red” and “Bacon.” Nixey also co-created the comic mini-series “Jenny Finn” and the critically acclaimed comic “Trout.” His comic book background has been perfect for Nixey’s transition into a director of genre films, allowing Nixey to bring his unique design sense and storytelling ability to “Don’t be Afraid of the Dark” the Guillermo del Toro film he directed in 2010. Troy Nixey is currently in development on a few feature film projects but his love for drawing still runs deep.

Check out some succulent shots of opening below...

There was even live jazz music!!

Dave Cooper "A Little Knotty" full set

Dave Cooper's pleasantly pillowly ladies frolic about in an erotic playland. These curvacious women create a carefree world that is nicely juxtaposed by Troy Nixey's confident and calculated penmanship.

A close up of Troy Nixey's piece "Dead Inventor 12"

Here is the artists caption to accompany the drawing.
"Professor Gasplant was notorious throughout the department for ignoring memos but when his nose hair began to tingle and his eyes bulged he swore if he survived he’d never again forget that a) all memos are important and b) Wednesdays are bring your gasmask to work day."

Please be sure to stop by and check out all of the amazing work by these two! The show will stay up until the 7th of April so you still have plenty of time. We have also just posted on the webstore along with all of the originals from the show nine other small originals that Troy Nixey did as a compliment to his other pieces.

1. Pen and ink drawing on antiqued paper tag 2.25" x 4.75"
Each one of these smaller pieces by Troy Nixey is available in our webstore for just $75!

Many thanks to our fabulous photographer Riley Ziesig and to both Dave Cooper & Troy Nixey for making the treck to Brooklyn to be at the opening. Also another thank you to eveyone who has been able to stop by and see the show since then!

The show runs March 8th - April 7th
