Jermaine Rogers 'Interaction # 1: Gypsy Eye' Edition of 150 Size: 20 x 30 Inches

Here is the latest Jermaine Rogers release, here are his details and thoughts about this print! “Arguably the greatest concert poster of all time is Rick Griffin’s ‘Eyeball,’ Bill Graham number 105, done for a 1968 concert headlined by Jimi Hendrix. The immortal imagery is perfect in every way, showcasing the ‘all-seeing’ eyeball: according to sources, Rick called it ‘the eye of god’. There it hovers, bearing a skull in it’s clawed hand…a reminder that we are all mortal and passing beings. Enhancing this striking artwork is the knowledge that it was done to promote a show by the legend that is Hendrix. I can imagine Jimi moving through cosmos and alternate realities…slipping in and out of dimensions, accompanied by his ethereal companion, his cosmic guide: The Eye. These 2 legendary figures are forever entwined in the history of rock and roll…one real and one imagined. And yet the power of the one has accentuated the beauty of the other. BG 105 is a shrine of modern art, a seamless example of what happens when music and visuals combine to create a tremor on the richter scale of how we measure culture and our place in it. This is my humble tribute: Rick Griffin, we are not even worthy.”

This 8-color screen print measures 20 x 30 inches, printed on gallery stock. It features a mixture of brilliant tone inks, including a metallic and a striking color-fade. This print is from an edition of 150, signed and numbered by the artist. This is available April 2nd between 2-5pm EST. CLICK HERE!!
