IM SCAR3D at LA’s Gallery 1988 opened tonight, October 12, 2007. Though the Greg.Craola.Simkins solo runs for a month, the originals sold out completely in record time at the onset of the online preview at noon. Within minutes the entire show was red-dotted. The opening had the feel of a rousing home-coming, yet at a breakthrough phase in his work. Universally, the renditions were sublime. Lavish detail with meticulous strokes made a resounding statement. To the point, his ‘mad-skillz’ demand to be witnessed in person. With an exhibition like this, it’s no wonder that Greg’s career is entering a gear with extremely high-octane.
