~DUKE RILEY . . PASTE ART
well, there’s being ripped off (!!), and then, there’s no . . . ripping off.
it’s interesting to contemplate the differences between ‘digital’ art, i.e. photos posted on the web vs paste art, drawings on paper that are pasted to the wall.
quelle funnie, how ‘paste’ and ‘post’ . . ‘rhyme’ !!
and then of course, when you get your mind around that a bit, you can contemplate:
roller, as in roof and pole art vs. paste and paper . . at street level.
somebody wanted this DUKE RILEY PASTE ART, but there was no way, it was gonna happen.

the low-fi ‘poster’ invites you to his current show,
DUKE RILEY, ‘See You At The Finish Line’
Magnan Metz – 521 West 26th St, Chelsea, NYC
the show opened Nov 1, 2013 and runs thru JAN 11, 2014.
but of course I was at the opening. the lovely and sea-worthy MARY GO-ROUND sang nautical ditties, whilst accompanying herself with a soulful accordion, and DUKE was serving drinks at the bar in the back, in full ‘mask’. (it was the night after Halloween.)
photos coming up . . next.
in the meantime, check out: DUKE’S online portfolio.
