|Artist Luis Varela-Rico w/|
his latest creation
Liberace used to say "too much of a good thing is wonderful," and I couldn't agree more. When you have an amazing artist like Luis Varela-Rico showing off his work you know you are in for a wonderful treat. You may have seen his gorilla style sculptures throughout Downtown. Whether its on a building, light pole or even some random sign, his metal origami represents a new breed of artistic expression seldom seen in our neon covered jungle. I will admit I have been a huge fan of his work since my friends Michael and Hillary introduced me to it in late 2010. There they were, two birds, just hanging on a side of a building silently moving in the breeze, I was in enamored...
This past weekend I had the pleasure of getting a sneak peek of Luis latest flock at his home and work space. How I survived not being cut by a piece of steel or blinded by a plasma torch is beyond me, but at least I am hear to tell the tail
. Anyway enough of my bad humor. In addition to Luis work there will be an exhibition of emerging photographer Nathan Douglas. These two artists are definitely not to be missed!
Luis and Nathan's work will be on exhibition beginning on Preview Thursday, May 31st at Brett Wesley Gallery in the heart of Las Vegas' Arts District.
