I’m pleased to announce that my newest silkscreen, “Meme-ento Mori” will be showing today, Saturday April 12th, at Balançoire, 2565 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94110. It’s part of the Nicolas Cage Art Show, which is an entire show dedicated to a celebration of our generation’s weirdest and greatest actor, Nicolas Cage. The festivities also include a number of visual and musical performers, so you really should not miss out!
I had a ton of fun going through his catalogue of works while I was working to find inspiration for this 6-colour silkscreen. The print includes both variegated metal leaf and 24k gold leaf. It’s entitled “Meme-ento Mori” as a play on both famous memento mori’s and the internet meme for photoshopping Nicolas Cage’s face onto other people, animals and inanimate objects. My camera really can’t capture it well enough to do it justice.
If you’re in SF this weekend I highly recommend checking it out!
Rumor has it that the show will also travel to Los Angeles later this spring, so if you’re on the West Coast you have two chances to check it out.
Meanwhile, I’ve put a couple pieces into my online shop if you’re interested in purchasing one of your very own: http://glukkake.bigcartel.com
