Crazy4Cult 5 print - 'Tidbits Of Time'

Hello friends, here are some detail images of my piece for the Crazy4Cult 5 show at Gallery 1988.  It's a 10-color screen print (with 2 fades), approx. 25.5"x15.5", edition of 95 (no variants were printed for this one).

This 'tidbit of time' shows the darkest moment for Norville Barnes, when the forces of greed and public shame begin to close in around him. All seems lost, until a noise from within the room breaks his concentration; suddenly he seems to forget the despair and pulls back from the brink, moving towards redemption and his second chance...

I consider The Hudsucker Proxy a severely underrated film, full of timeless themes such as good vs. evil, greed vs. passion and the eternal mortal struggle to make every moment count, especially when time itself seems pitted against you. ("Tidbits of Time" = the fictional newsreel title in the film).

In addition to being a great script, I've often thought it would make a fine stage production since many of the performances are deliberately exaggerated and even some of the sets look as if they were designed to resemble stage facades (seem to remember hearing about a Hudsucker college production?). There are a few additional characters joining Norville on this 'stage', with even Waring Hudsucker making an appearance.. sort of...

Thanks for the kind words everyone-had a lot of fun working on this, and felt good to switch up the style a bit.

"How can i buy this?"

The gallery usually puts up any remaining prints on their website the day after/soon after the show (not sure if they'll wait until the signing on Sunday this time)
Should have a small amount to sell here as well-JC
