Jason and the Onanauts, Cover Nr. 21, June, 2001
This is "Covers" work Nr. 21 --- ink on paper. 21 x 15 cm / 8.25 in x 6 in. Dated June, 2001.
This cover was a riff on the late Jason Rhoades and similar Neo-Dada Neo-Conceptual art. Jason loved it even though I am clearly teasing him and the form. At his request, I made a color version of it for him, which is, I hope, still in the collection of his wife Rachel Khedoori. I wrote an obit article about Jason on Sharkforum and my art articles blog, link here. RIP Jason.
