New York City and its outer lying boroughs can be really brutal in the summer, even desolate at times. Activity slowed to an almost halt because of the heat and all your friends being away. At least that’s my perception of it growing up here.
This Saturday might be the exception to that because Tara McPherson’s Cotton Candy Machine Gallery is hosting it’s annual Tiny Trifecta Art Show starting at 7PM. I’m not a fan of small gallery art shows because the majority of attendees just want the free alcohol and never buy any art.
This show is probably the complete opposite of that to the point of people camping out the night before to jockey a high enough position to acquire a piece of art for only $100 from one of their favorite artists. Every piece of art in the show is only $100.
That may sound a lot to some of you but considering the superstar lineup that Tara brings to the show, that’s quite a steal. Now I’m not saying me or Sucklord are superstars or anything like that because we are in the show and I will reveal our collaborative pieces here. We’re actually the bottom feeders in the art world.
We make toys, sometimes call it art and try to pass it off as real art. Nothing lower than that but I don’t really give a shit. Anyway, here’s our collaborative three pieces for the show. I illustrated directly on the blister backing card and carefully hand selected 9 loose figures with Sucklord out of a card board box of his spares and rejects.
He then skillfully hand painted each figure like a true artisan that he is. I then weaved a story with my illustration for each one. If you’re in the Williamsburg area , corner of Roebling and South 1st Street, definitely check out the show. This isn’t the first collaboration me and Sucklord have done but it’s probably the one well worth the price tag if you can score one.- Lamour Supreme
