Review: Nicolas Delort and Teagan White art show at Galerie Nucleus

Pop Onirism

Last Saturday was the premiere of the Nicolas Delort and Teagan White art show at the Nucleus Gallery (Alhambra, California). I had previously shown you a few exclusive art works from Nicolas last week, but the final reveals of all the pieces of the show blew my mind. You may know Nicolas Delort from his many alternative posters for Mondo and other galleries throughout the world, but no pop culture involved in this show. I found it important to review the art show nonetheless, first because I think it is important to share the work of artists I admire and respect, but also because the main goal of my website is to share some great art with you. The fact that it is pop culture related is, in the end not that important. And if the word “Geek” is synonym of passion, then Geek-Art is the web dedicated to art lovers !

And in the end, I cannot see Nicolas Delorts work as not being part of pop culture. Those beautiful landscapes seem to have emerged from an ancient Myth, sometimes because of his characters (a faun, a priest), sometimes because of his ruins and castles. There definitely is a fantastic and onirical spirit in all his artworks. I feel the urge to explore his landscapes, visit his old ruins, get lost in his forests… The visual poetry of Nicolas Delort is definitely part of the imaginarium inherent to pop culture.

The same process comes with Teagan Whites work, in a different way. Her work reminds me of the masterpiece that is David Petersen’s Mouse Guard. Her autumnal compositions are rich and full of symbolism, each piece becoming, just like Nico’s work, a real invitation to a spiritual journey. And isn’t it what we all ask from a piece of art ?

Please enjoy the artworks below, you can also check various pictures from the event at the Nucleus Gallery, a big thank to Ben and Linda for providing those for me !

The artworks are available for sale on the Nucleus Gallery website. Most of the artworks are original works, so the price are a bit high, but some of them were printed as screen prints, allowing everyone to experience the fantastic worlds of Nico and Teagan!
