INDIE CURATORS, KATE & THEO CERIGO at the opening of ‘UNDER THE VOLCANO’ – their very first curatorial project.
and it was a . . hit !!
behind them is their late dad, SIMON CERIGO’S . . huge & wild paint & collage piece, with found artifacts, made on a found ‘curtain’.
for: WE LIVE IN PUBLIC insiders, yes !!
KATE . . is wearing a real, limited edition MARK ENGER, of EXPLODING SKY – silkscreen T-Shirt, of a skull.
skull, skull, death & bones – shiver me timbers all ye young hipsters !!
– . . for ye shall surely die one day, too.
done in his signature rebel indie style, RIP, MARK . . I miss you, we miss you – so much !!
the t-shirt was given to Kate, by Mark in person at a studio visit, we did just about a year or so, before he died, too.
a couple of years back. was he even 50 ? I don’t think so ?
no ventilation in the silkscreen studio, and a bad ciggie habit – !! and, that’s what happens.
I wanna say, ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG – but where does that leave me ?????
I guess someone has to stick around – to tell the tale, and yep: I’M TELLING IT – !!
I’M SCREAMING IT !! – FROM THE ROOF-TOPS OF THE WWW / THE WORLD WIDE WEB !!
THIS IS OUR ART, THIS OUR HUSTLE !!
the scene has been hi-jacked by lowlifes – and, the banal – for, far too long !!
LONG LIVE THE HARDCORE REBEL INDIES !! LONG LIVE THE UNDERGROUND PUNKS !!
I hear ‘love/hate’ maven, you just never know ??
CHARLIE FINCH is calling me . . the “widow” – behind my back !!
haha – love it.
CRACKULA is a WIDOW !!
LONG LIVE CRACKULA !!
but I must admit, I am a little lonely with 3 of my best art ‘buddies’ – gone, gone from the face of this dusty globe, finally free of the . . red red dust.
but, watch out . . for that ghost army !!
that surely follows close . . behind !!
