I had a lot more trouble than I expected coming up with a piece for the show, because while I like bad words just as much as (if not more than) all other words, I couldn’t really think of a way to make them the focal point of a piece without feeling like it was too synthetically rebellious or just (and it’s sad that this bothers me) completely unmarketable. But I’d been rereading Salinger stories and had the idea to channel some of the better midcentury expletives and came up with this, partially because it gave me a reason to add birds. In the long run I’ll probably replace the lettering altogether and make these into pretty little thank-you cards or something, because I’m just not cool enough to pull the expletive thing off.
TL;DR- All the other artists did a better and more authentic job than me go to the opening
Color studies for two things!
