20 +1 = WHEN WE GOT THERE THERE WASN’T A THERE THERE.
The unlikely attraction of two global icons: Jason Freeny and Gertrude Stein forms the basis of the latest FRINGE print. #10 of 12 in the Facsimile series makes oblique reference to the artist’s previous print claiming ‘2020 you fucked us good and proper.’
Now, the latest work reflects on the global expectation that 2021 would be a year of massive change. Paraphrasing the words of the great art collector, Gertrude Stein, we are reminded that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
The art of Freeny makes an appearance – and in this context reminds us that appearances are not everything. Even the stereotypical, pristine beauty of a Barbie Doll is upstaged by the reality that all humans are really made up of blood and guts.
