For the past two weeks, Nicolai Sclater, known the world round as Ornamental Conifer, has taken up quarters at The Emporium of Postmodern Activities under the auspices of the Deus Ex Machina artist in residence program. Camped out on the roof high above the alarums and excursions of The Emporium, Nico has been fastidiously applying brush to canvas, completing a flight of fancy vintage Honda Elsinore project in conjunction with a soon-to-be-unveiled, full-scale wall installation in the Deus Café. We’ve had a blast with Nico, laughing at his jokes, watching him create inspiring artwork, and just plain old hanging out. Thanks for the fun, Mr. Conifer!
