Forty-One of Phifty-Two
|Title:||Do Tigers Sleep In Lily Patches?
|Materials:||Hand Pulled Screen Print
|Inspiration:||Song – “Tube”
Some songs you love instantly. The first time you hear them they get stuck in your head and you just can’t get enough. You put it on repeat, sing every word, and even catch yourself humming it while waiting in line at the grocery store. Phish’s song “Tube”… well, it wasn’t that for me. I thought it was a good tune, but wasn’t hooked. This year has been a bit unusual for me as 99% of my music listening (2-5 hrs per day) has been strictly Phish. Over the course of the year “Tube” has crept into my head and is now one of those that I catch myself humming every now and then. I now love it.
On a recent listen, I paid particular close attention to the lyrics and found several great images to pull art from. Excellent imagery could be created from lyrics like: “An asteroid crashed and nothing burned”, “Do rhinos run from thunder?”, “gang wars and ails of riches spewing forth their color”, “There’s a Mummy in the cabinet”, “Ten cents to a dollar now for a shelf of pregnant hens”, and “Do tigers sleep in lily patches”. There’s six art pieces right there! (except my friend Otto already beat me to the punch on two of them)
This week’s art piece “Do Tigers Sleep In Lily Patches?” is a hand pulled, five color screen print. It was printed on a few different stocks of paper in a limited edition run of 25 signed and numbered prints. The prints have been made available in our online store.
