Opening June 10th @ Rotofugi Gallery, is the art show titled "Return to Carrara", which will feature art and sculpts from Candy and Nick, known to folks as Noferin! And they "return" to the fold along with their daughter Poppy, who is featured on tons of their paintings too!
"One of the greatest things about preparing our upcoming @rotofugi show is working creatively together again. Whilst Candy has been busy painting, Nick has been busy sculpting new Pecanpals out of wood. It is a completely new design from our first Pecanpals back in 2007. This is Pandacake in Molasses."

Stay connected via their Instagram @noferin_art (images judiciously featured here) where they give further in-depth commentary about their artwork!
And if the name "Carrara" sounds familiar, tis because "Pecanpals" live on "Carrara Island", in the world of Noferin, where Candy and Nick are the "storytellers" (Read my interview with them circa 2007 with the first introduction of Pecanpals!).
"Return to Carrara" - New Works by Noferin exhibits thru July 3, 2016.
On one of our local walks there is a pine forest where we stop to eat our snacks. It's lovely sitting in there watching the trees sway back and forth in the wind and being the only voices in the whole entire world. There are rotten logs that we explore for little creepies and now that the rains are starting again, fungi! We love fungi. But here Fanelli and Pandacake have lost someone. Who could it be? #Noferin #Pecanpals #forest #fungi #fog #moon #painting #woodenpanel
Quite often I have no idea what the painting is going to be like. I just paint along... The environment sort of just floats in my head so it is hard to explain the process. I might have put bits and pieces of memories I have in my head together, such as a path in the Japanese forest, horizon of the ocean near home or the wild meadow in New Zealand. They are like a fragment of memories put together. #wip #inspirations #painting #noferin #poppy #pecanpals #horizon #moonlight
