    Jermaine Rogers 'Ween' + 'Afro-Punk' Print Release Details 

    http://jermainerogers.com/art_2010/10_gene_ween_chicago_LRG.jpg

    -GENE WEEN (Chicago)-
    This screen print measures approx. 32 x 22 inches and is printed on cream gallery stock. Personally commissioned by Gene Ween, this print promotes his recent solo performance at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, Il. The show version of the print (printed on white stock) was a hit at the show, with all copies selling out. The imagery is an updated twist of one of Jermaine's most recognized images, 'We Carry Each Other', which depicted two of bunny rabbits in an intimate embrace. That 'bunny' design was not only used by the band Deftones in a poster for their Philadelphia and Boston shows, but was also released as a much sought-after art print. This new design substitutes another of Jermaine's highly recognized creations, The DERO, in the same intimate embrace...though a bit more disturbing. Of the imagery, Jermaine says, 'These 'Carry' images, both the one with the bunnies from years ago and this new one with the DERO bears, convey a certain intimacy between two characters that, in each case, I'd always depicted alone. I first used the DERO bear on a prominent concert poster/flyer back in 1995. It was a flyer for a KMFDM show. Since then, the DERO bear has become quite known in the 'rock art' world, and I've used them on various prints for various bands...as well as creating a vinyl toy line based on these beings. Individually, these characters were always a bit disturbing... and depicting them as a single, solitary threat was enough to convey this. To actually depict TWO of them involved in an embrace gave them a warmth that was non-existent in my previous works featuring them. I like the idea that everything is co-dependent... no matter how threatening it is on its own. Everything, on some level, needs something else. We all carry something, or someone else.'

    This print is in an extremely limited edition of only 50 signed and numbered pieces. $50.00 USD plus shipping/insurance. This print goes on sale at JermaineRogers.com on Friday, Feb. 19th at 3:00pm EST. Absolutely no holds or reservations: one print per buyer.

    -WEEN (Eureka)-
    This screen print measures approx. 31.5 x 23 inches and is printed on white gallery stock. Personally commissioned by the band WEEN, this print promotes their recent performance in Eureka, California. The prints were a hit at the show, with all copies selling out. This print has been long-awaited by Ween poster fans, and now after several months of waiting (and Jermaine traveling,) the print will be released. The imagery also completes Jermaine's 'Seasons' series: a group of 4 prints promoting 4 selected Ween shows... which depicted Jermaine's 'nature children' in different seasonal settings. The prints were also released in 'art print' versions, sans the show text and info. This print depicts 'Winter', and is a beautiful 7-color screen print, including a seamless ink fade (The 'Winter' art print will go on sale at a future date.)

    This print is in an extremely limited edition of only 100 signed and numbered pieces. $50.00 USD plus shipping/insurance. This print goes on sale at JermaineRogers.com on Friday, Feb. 19th at 3:00pm EST. Absolutely no holds or reservations: one print per buyer.

    http://jermainerogers.com/art_2010/10_afro-punk_malcolm_LRG.jpg

    -AFRO-PUNK 'Malcolm' (Artist Proof)-
    This 7-color screen print measures approx. 18.5 x 25.5 inches and is printed on white gallery stock. Created for last years AFRO-PUNK Festival in Brooklyn, NYC, this imagery re-imagines Malcolm X as a 'punk'. In reality, he was as punk-rock as one could be. The print was part of a trio of prints depicting 3 African American personalities (Malcolm X, Jimi Hendrix & Spike Lee) as stereo-typical 'punk rockers'. As Afro-Punk spokesman Matthew Morgan said, 'The idea of using these images is in response to the "What Is Afro-punk?" question. Afro-punk is not as literal as 'Black punk rockers'. It's a mind set, not defined by the clothes we wear or the hair style we rock. The images depicted are of the mind set. Using OUR reference instead of the typical perspective of what is punk rock.' The prints are Jermaine's visual interpretation of this ethic and its community, of which he himself is an active member.

    From a limited edition of only 25 signed and numbered ARTIST PROOFS. $40.00 USD plus shipping/insurance. This print goes on sale at JermaineRogers.com on Friday, Feb. 19th at 3:00pm EST. Absolutely no holds or reservations: one print per buyer.

    -AFRO-PUNK 'Spike' (Artist Proof)-
    This 7-color screen print measures approx. 18.5 x 25.5 inches and is printed on white gallery stock. Created for last year's AFRO-PUNK Festival in Brooklyn, NYC, this imagery re-imagines Spike Lee as a punk. The renegade independent film maker has truly been a personification of the 'punk' ethic with his revolutionary style of film-making.

    From a limited edition of only 25 signed and numbered ARTIST PROOFS. $40.00 USD plus shipping / insurance. This print goes on sale at JermaineRogers.com on Friday, Feb. 19th at 3:00pm EST. Absolutely no holds or reservations: one print per buyer.

    'Hi everyone. Just wanted to welcome the many new ones who've joined the mailing list in the past couple of months. I hope you stick around. Thanks also to all of you who showed so much hospitality to us recently in New York City, in Maryland and Virginia, as well as in San Francisco (you know who you are.) Some of the things we've been working on for the past few months are so very cool and so very different from anything I've done before... and I'm so excited to see watch them all progressively come to light.
