    Jermaine Rogers 'We Carry Each Other', 'Winter' + 'Western Pop' Print Release Details

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

    - 'We Carry Each Other (Slight Return)' Art Print -
    This screen print measures approx. 22 x 32 inches and is printed on white gallery stock. The imagery is an updated twist of one of Jermaine's most recognized images, 'We Carry Each Other', which depicted two 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.'

    From a very limited edition of 60 signed and numbered prints. $50 plus shipping/insurance. This print goes on sale at JermaineRogers.com on Friday, Feb. 26th at 3pm EST Absolutely no holds or reservations: one print per buyer.

    - 'Winter' Art Print -
    This screen print measures approx. 23 x 31.5 inches and is printed on white gallery stock. The imagery 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. Delayed in release due to previous logistical commitments to the band WEEN (for whom the artwork was originally created), 'Winter' will finally be released. NOTE - Many have inquired about the art print release of 'Spring'. Jermaine answers, 'Arrangements have been finalized to release this print, which will come with a bonus item. The art was originally commissioned for a show by Ween, The Flaming Lips, and Sonic Youth...so lots of folks were involved. To cut through a bunch of legal mumbo-jumbo, a lot of time has passed and I can finally release it as an art print. Release info. is forthcoming.'

    - 'Western Pop' Art Print -
    This screen print measures approx. 25x16 inches and is printed on gallery white stock.

    About the imagery, Jermaine comments:
    'I was asked by Saul Williams and Matt Morgan of Afro-Punk to come up with a design for the 2009 Saul Williams / Afro-Punk tour posters, merch and advertising. The design I came up with taps into many of the themes that Saul talks about on his awesome records...the idea that social patterns of thinking which become very ingrained & almost sacred are enforced by manufactured 'popular culture' that permeates every aspect of our society. I wanted to take 2 big socially-relevant trademarks of culture that were decades removed from each other & have absolutely no relation to one another. I wanted to mix these two together and see what would happen. The 'Golliwog' character sprang out of Western pop-culture in the 19th century as a commercial and advertising subject... first in England, then migrating over to the USA. Used to sell everything from bottles of jelly, to cigars, to bicycle tires, black-face 'Golliwog' imagery was profitable. Dolls were made. There was power in the imagery. What now depicts supreme ignorance and prejudice was once a mainstream 'cash-cow'. I did an art print a couple of years ago which was also used by The Foo Fighters for a show poster. It depicted a little bunny rabbit decorated in the 'lightning-bolt' face-paint made famous by David Bowie on the cover of his 1970's album, 'Aladdin Sane'. Of course, I knew the image would trigger immediate connotations to Bowie and all that he represented during that era, and yet Im still amazed by the process. The power of a single, simple image or icon can dredge up immense feeling! I decided to put this same symbol from modern pop culture onto that startled black-face of the 19th century 'Golliwog'. Two pieces of pop-culture separated by a century... joined. I'm sure if the creators of each design were magically brought together in the same room, each would be SURE that the other was a freak. Popular culture is a beautifully divine, perfect, sick and twisted thing. Sometimes it's difficult to even visually 'sip' on an image that once was heartily gulped down by the masses, guilt-free.'

    From a signed and numbered edition of 150. $30 plus shipping/insurance. This print goes on sale at JermaineRogers.com on Friday, Feb. 26th at 3pm EST Absolutely no holds or reservations: one print per buyer.
