The End of the World - New Print From Keep Calm

THE END OF THE WORLD (REALLY BUILT TO LAST) is Paris-based artist Matthew Rose's latest surreal fantasy about the fragility of world we live in and the end of the world we've built. 
Based on an original collage from 2008, THE END OF THE WORLD, reports from the frontiers of the real and dream worlds, where foods and animals, naughty little boys and errant little girls enter into the visual field and run, jump, hang and float in and around an assortment of human narratives that are veering dangerously out of control. Like in life.
This work, and others in the series, will appear in Masters of Collage (Lark Publishing, USA) in May 2010 along with 40 other contemporary artists.
This full color print measures 25 x 25 cm, and also has a border for framing.  Signed and numbered in an edition of 85, the print, produced by Lalande Digital Art Press Paris costs 38 UK Pounds exclusively from Keep Calm Gallery.  Click here to go to Keep Calm Gallery to see detailed images and order.

Ricardo Bloch: Huckleberry Dick

Huckleberry Dick began as a collage work by Ricardo Bloch in 1995, and has now been published as a facsimile of the original, in a limited-edition of 250 copies, printed by Lalande Digital Art Press.

Copies are available directly from the author for only 15€ plus shipping.

Using the classic glue and scissors technique, during an obsessive spell in a cabin by Lake Superior in the summer of 1995, Ricardo blended Classics Illustrated adaptations of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Moby Dick. Starting with page one, and using two copies of each comic book, Ricardo advanced page by page until the climactic page 48. Images and/or fragments of text were cut and pasted to create a seemingly seamless hybrid story. The task was facilitated, or in fact made possible, because both Huckleberry Finn and Moby Dick are first person narratives that recount tales of personal discovery, of boats and water, and of a friendship with a man of color.

It may not completely surprise those that have read the books, that the coupling of the two stories has brought to light the subliminal homoerotic themes underlying their narratives.
