I will be working with Bianca and her amazing Brooklyn-made Uncouth Vermouth at La Dive Bouteille in Saumur, France this weekend. My work will be on a new batch of her incredible vermouth. More here: Uncouth Vermouth ... and La Dive Bouteille.
We will be offering as a prize a print of Immaculate Perception (Baby Bloo) to one of the visitors! The print is signed and dated 2015.
Surrealism, asserted André Breton, was above all "a revolutionary movement." And that movement, both visual and literary, was largely identified with the dream. Shock, non-sequitur, unlikely but often gorgeous juxtapositions were the signature elements of surrealist works. These ideas come to term in Immaculate Perception. Beautifully printed by Mariela Cadiz in Paris, the work is a lullaby in the surrealist cannon: A young girl in a bob cut dreams in a dream of a lemon tree. She is the revolution.
A larger and slightly different print is available (only a few left) from The Calm Gallery (online sale only). You can see and order the limited edition (50) piece here: Matthew Rose / Immaculate Perception / The Calm Gallery...
