Opening reception, September 1, 6-9 pm

Contemporary narrative artists, Phil Noto and Brandt Peters are joining forces to create a 2 person exhibition focused on empowered portraits of the strange, the unusual, and the eccentric.

Phil Noto is an Eisner nominated American painter, comic book/ concept artist who is known for his work on such titles as Black Widow, Jonah Hex, Uncanny X-Force, and most recently Star Wars (Chewbacca and Shattered Empire). After a 10 year career at Disney Feature Animation, he started to work full-time as an artist for Marvel, DC, Image Comics and Dark Horse, and as well, time in gaming working on such blockbuster hits such as Bioshock. While most of his commercial work is done digitally, Noto works in traditional acrylic painting for his fine art works that focus on contemporary character portraits of iconic empowered women that teeter into superheroes and villainous archetypes.

Brandt Peters emerged from the entertainment industry into an internationally recognized and accomplished fine artist, designer, and producer. Often known for his award winning toy designs, Peters is also a mixed media painter and story-teller who centers his work on character design and visual development. His work hearkens back to the earliest days of comics and animation, with a seeming simplicity that hides layers of intricate back story rooted in humor and a strong, empowering narrative voice.

In the project room, ceramicists Simon Boses and Calan Ree present new character driven works exploring nature’s role in inspiring mythology and personifying its elements.

Simon Boses creates an ongoing mythology through ceramic narrative figures. His myth is influenced by the events of his life, often drawing upon threads of common human experience. Simon’s creations have a surface meaning that is easy to recognize. Further investigation reveals the use of a library of symbols developed over a lifetime to layer ideas into the physical form. Allowing a deeper, subtler symbolism in the piece.

Calan Ree creates contemporary ceramic and mixed media figurative sculpture. Clay is her first true love, so even when working in bone or metal, there is more often than not, ceramic binding the elements together. She finds the natural world just as intriguing as the folk lore that tries to explain it. Her work is figurative in nature and often expresses the hidden spirit that resides within the subject.

The OUTER LIMITS gallery tour comes to Stranger Factory this August

with Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters!

Internationally recognized fine artists and toy designers Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters launched their highly anticipated OUTER LIMITS gallery tour earlier this Summer of 2016 across three cities from the “mile high” city of Denver, Colorado (Sally Centigrade Gallery)… to Old Route 66 in New Mexico (Stranger Factory Gallery), to across the pacific ocean to the capital city of Manila, Philippines (Secret Fresh).

Stranger Factory is pleased to host the second stop for their OUTER LIMITS TOUR at their flag-ship gallery in Albuquerque, NM. Outer Limits opens On August 5th with an opening reception with the artists from 6-9 PM (both artists in attendance).

Outer Limits presents the most recent collaborations and individual new works from this artist couple. Often known for their hand made art toys and limited edition vinyl figures, both Peters and Olivas have also spent the last 20 years developing their careers as narrative painters. This current series of work is inspired by cosmic travelers, psychic healers, futuristic utopias, and a potential zombie apocalypse.

This exhibition tour marks the first time Peters and Olivas have shown together as a two-person exhibition in over 6 years.

About the Artists:
Kathie Olivas is an internationally exhibited multi-media artist from New Mexico. Through her current body of work she explores society’s insatiable desire to assign ‘cuteness’ and our discomfort with the unknown. A dark blend of early American portraiture set in post apocalyptic times, her paintings and hand-made art toys are a satirical look at how fear affects our sense of reality.

Brandt Peters is an award winning internationally recognized and accomplished visual artist, designer, story developer (animation-film), illustrator, character and toy designer. His work hearkens back to the earliest days of comics and animation, with a seeming simplicity that hides layers of intricate back story. His humor and unerring sense of composition, combined with a strong narrative thread that has consistently woven through all his work for the past decade, has made him a favorite of art and toy collectors the world over.

The show will run August 5 – 28th.
