Speaking of Coffins and Printmaking

April 30, 2009

The last post reminded me of Glen Baldridge’s scratch-off coffin print series “Lucky Seven’s”. This one is Lucky Sevens (Titan), it was published by Forth Estate in 2008 and printed by Axelle Editions. The print you see above is an image from a coffin catalog that has been over-printed with scratch-off ink (think: Scratch-off Lotto Tickets), and then someone scratched off the ink (I guess they were feeling lucky).

If you dig this work and are in the greater New York area be sure to check out his exhibit at Klaus Von Nichtssagend Gallery in Brooklyn, May 1st – June 7th.
