Neverbetter is a limited edition series of mixed media on 11' x 14 7/8" sheets of Winsor & Newton 300gsm watercolor paper.
Here is #7 of 11 and it comes framed in simple black 12”x15” frame with glass!
The skeletal centaur image is from a collage I made in 2005 while working with my collaborative art group, GMSH.
I would often think back on this character and want to revisit it. Finally I had a new silkscreen made and create d this new series of work with 12 years in between the first incarnation of this figure.
One of my favorite things about this guy is the humor of him. I really enjoyed working on this series. It felt good to channel the monkeyshines with my old friends and collaborators.
Working in this manner is a good way to let off some steam and poke fun a little at yourself and the world.
Also, It makes it possible to create an edition of prints that are tethered though imagery but each work remains completely unique.
In addition, although they all carry the tile of the "NEVERBETTER"edition, each piece comes with it's own personal title.
#7 is *pure joy* This one reminds me of the strange attraction to people with so called "imperfections". I have always been drawn to people with bad hair, bad teeth and peculiar features.
Each of the works are silkscreened with selective areas of acrylic painting and drawing. The materials used vary in technique for each work but all consist of acrylic, inks, pencil and wax.
Also I am offering FREE SHIPPING on this piece right now for collectors in the USA. $15 for everywhere else. Not too shabby of a deal I'd say.
