Customized LOST Statue
Thanks to the quick twitpic action of Ryan Crippen, and despite the best red herrings of Mr. Jon Burgerman, here’s a photo of Jon’s contribution to Gallery1988’s LOST Underground Art Project show. The poster project parked at Damon, Carlton and a Polar Bear.com has been leading up to the show that caused a rumored 15 people to sleep outside the LA gallery last night. It was only recently that I found out my friends at Pretty In Plastic had sculpted and cast LOST statues for customization by great artists. “What lies in the shadow of the statue?” you ask? Doodles, in part. The statue is hand-painted resin, and it’s in terrific company with customs by Reactor88, Motorbot, Jesse Hernandez, kaNO, Dave Pressler, Brent Nolasco, Nemo and 64colors to name a few. (And that doesn’t even begin to cover the 2D art by Alex Pardee et al.) Love the TV show, the artists, the sculptors and the gallery. The only misfire in this whole process was G1988 holding it in their LA gallery rather than their sister gallery in San Francisco! Ryan posted the first images of the customs, and until they get bumped by newer twitpics, you can see them here. G1988 will surely have a subdomain up with all of the art and prices sometime very soon.
