For the latest PHANTOM HAND show, focusing on dead technology, I chose the cassette tape. Ironically, I still release cassette tapes, though acknowledge the novelty of it to the average person. I did this image of a mix tape that had the tape pulled from it completely out of tape, no stencils were used. I illustrated, then cut all of the art out of tape, and re-stuck it to a canvas. I did the background in a sort of Van Halen homage as well, and surround the border with tape from an actual cassette.
Phantom Hand presents an
exhibition of the antiquated and obsolete. This collection will pay
tribute to occupations, tools and practices now relegated to the
'dust-bin of progress'.
The Dead Cats of Civilization is the
inaugural exhibition kicking off Phantom Hand's residence at Jinxed. The
first in what will be a long line of exhibitions showcasing
Philadelphia illustrators, printers, designers, and cartoonists.
