Derek Toomes @ SECCA
NCNC [North Carolina New Contemporary]
October 8, 2010 – March 13, 2011
From SECCA: “A recent movement in art-making is fusing seemingly disparate elements of history painting and collage with graffiti, video gaming, folk, anime, advertising and film. In a state of continual muta-tion, this movement congregates a variety of practices under one amorphous umbrella – speed-ing through titles as quickly as it does styles… Such efforts found immediate traction in major urban centers, and intriguing interpretations outside the mainstream. Such is the case in North Carolina, where a generation of young artists from across the state are animating “new contemporary” with painting and sculpture that traverses the aesthetic spectrum.” Featured artists: Darren Goins, Hieronymus, James Marshall [Dalek], Brian Mashburn, Sean Pace [Jinx], Taiyo la Paix, Parail, Mathew Curran, Derek Toomes, Gabriel Shaffer
