Every once in awhile an artist is born that grows and matures into serious double trouble. Not only is artist Nic Noblique renowned for his amazing skill and talent as a metal sculptor, he also tears up the visual art world with his highly sought after oil paintings.
Noblique returns to the Dallas art stage with his latest exhibit, “Music, Flame Retardant & A Tetanus Shot” on Saturday, March 12th at The Cameron Gallery from 6-9pm.
The always impressive body of work showcases many of Noblique’s latest Corten Steel sculptures, several of which are ambitious in size, measuring nearly 16 to 18 feet in height. Each of Noblique’s metal gems come in variety of fantastic powder-coated color, looking like a 1957 Cadillac Eldorado fresh off the showroom floor.
When previously asked how he ‘sets the table for his muse’, Noblique’s response was simple: “Music, flame retardants and a tetanus shot”, which made for an interesting title for this exhibit.
Originally hailing from Wisconsin, Noblique has made quite a name for himself in the art world over the last few years, with sculpture and painting work in private and corporate collections the world over. In Texas alone, his work is represented by nearly 10 different galleries and has an artist CV as long as The Warren Commission.
Noblique, along with wife Audrah’s business prowess and support, has owned his own gallery as well as a successful alternative art space and studio concept, which garnered a ‘Best Of’ award in 2008. Additionally, he has been honored with awards in sculpture including the prestigious international Navy Pier Walk Competition in 2003, juried by David Pagel and several ‘Best of Show’ awards for 3D Art.
“Music, Flame Retardants & A Tetanus Shot” is on exhibit through the remainder of March, and additional work will be on display during this year’s popular Savor Dallas festival.
The Cameron Gallery is located in the heart of Dallas’ Design District – 1414 Dragon Street, Dallas, TX 75207. Open Monday-Friday, 10a-5p.
