Our friend Oliver Vernon is about to premier a new set of work at the Irvine Contemporary tonight (6pm).  The show “Double Down” consists of the next stage in Oliver’s already psychedelic and well rendered 3-D visual works, utilizing gouache, ink and acrylic to create his complex compositions. During his show at Joshua Liner Gallery (covered) and his last show down here in DC (covered), we caught ourselves and others staring at his work trying to take in all the detail.

Another incentive to stop by is to see Oliver at work. He’s currently painting at the back alley of the gallery and building a gorgeous mural layer by painstaking layer. We can’t wait to see it completed. Check out the sneak peek of the show after the jump.
