It was going to be hard to top a show like last years’s 3G. ( Ghostbusters, Gremlins & Goonies ) As a fan of all 3 of those movies and a fan of Gallery 1988 this show was a blast and a real inspiration for me to crank out some art in the following year. So the second I heard about this years 3B show I got a little excited, not just because I’m a huge fan of Back to the Future, Bill & Ted’s and Beetlejuice, but because i knew i needed to be a part of this. Luckily The Autumn Society thought so too. I am so stoked to be a part of 3B. I really hope everyone gets out to Venice to check out the all the art that these people brought together. If you can’t wait until May 5th to check out a sneak peak of some of the artwork that will be on display, hop in you virtual DeLorean and/or phone booth and check out The Autumn Society‘s website.
As for my art in the 3B show, I went the pin up route. Why not, right? I hope you like them. The first one featured Jennifer, Marty’s girlfriend from the original Back to the Future. Not that I dislike Elizabeth Shue, but I just think the first one was hotter. I call this painting “Oh La La”.
The 2nd entry was for someone a little random but very memorable. It’s a diptych of our friend who was cut in half from what I have to assume was a magician’s saw trick gone bad. I call my Beetlejuice entry “Hack Job”.
And as for my “Bill & Ted’s” entry, I have this double pin up of the two princesses from the Renaissance period that Rufus brought back to our most excellent heroes. I was playing with the idea of what would life for these two hotties be like if they got to live in San Dimas in the 80’s. But the part about this painting that I had a really good time with just was the icons for each of the fellow time travelers along the boarder.
After checking out just some of the kick ass entries that the other artists have turned in, I am convinced this show will blow people away. Even more so if you kinda like these 3 flicks. And if you love these 3 flicks like I do, then it is certainly not to be missed. I’m really excited and proud to part of such a talented group. Thanks to those who let me be a part of it. See you in Venice!!!
