Christopher Owen

Childers-West and Christopher Owen Nelson

November 1–30

Mark White Fine Art, 414 Canyon,

Mark White Fine Art is adding two new represented artists to its cohort. One of these artists is actually two—Childers-West is a husband-and-wife team. Josiane Childers paints bright, drooping, and balanced colors of the rainbow onto the steel and mixed-media sculptures that Justin West creates.

This exhibition will welcome Childers-West beside Mark White’s other new represented artist, Christopher Owen Nelson. Nelson creates paintings, often on glass, as well as mixed-media sculpture using alternative materials. “Using textures and microscopic elements of the natural world, I thrive on giving things new life, purpose, and movement,” he says. “Reviving these details found in nature reshapes the way I exist myself.”
