KUBRICK - An Art Show Tribute by Spoke Art Gallery

Posted by The Daily Zombies Wednesday, September 3, 2014

Here to pay the ultimate tribute to legendary film-maker Stanley Kubrick, Spoke Art Gallery has assembled a stunning collection of over 60 amazing artists for their next art show: KUBRICK. 

Being big fans of cinema in general, we were elated to cover Spoke Art Gallery's tribute art show to legendary film-maker Martin Scorsese at the "Scorsese: An Art Show Tribute" in New York last year with a massive showing of more than one hundred paintings and screen prints from more than 70 artists across the world.

This year, the San Francisco-based gallery returns to cover yet another important film-makers of our time, Stanley Kubrick. Set to be launched this weekend at Spoke Art Gallery, KUBRICK will be running from 6th to 27th September. Unveiled exclusively by both Bad Ass Digest and Blurppy, let's take a First Look at some of the awe-inspiring pieces conjured by fellow Poster Posse members, Tracie Ching, Chris Skinner, Samuel Ho, David Moscatti and Fernando Reza

“2001 A Space Odyssey” by Tracie Ching
18″ x 24″

“Space Station 5″ by Chris Skinner
4 color screen print 
36″ x 24″
Edition of 25

In the artist's own words courtesy of Blurppy:

“I love the space plane scene to Station 5 in Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, the vision that travelling to space is an everyday occurrence to viewers in 1968, the revolutionary special effects and Johann Strauss’s The Blue Danube Waltz must have had viewers in awe at the cinema. I wanted to capture some of the essence of that scene in this print and have Orion 3 space planes arriving and departing as though travelling to the stars is done with ease. With the style of the artwork I wanted it to have an air of nostalgia and vintage feel like classic 60’s and 70’s science fiction art.”

Spoke Art is proud to present: KUBRICK – An art show tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick. Over 60 artists were invited to re-imagine their favorite characters, scenes and thematic concepts from one of the world’s most prolific directors. Spanning a plethora of mediums from sculpture and painting to limited edition prints, the show seeks to honor one of the 20th century’s most significant directors while also reinterpreting his impact in a contemporary context.

Widely known for his controversial techniques and highly controlled directorial style, Kubrick has fabricated a diverse repertoire of films and imagined worlds for his viewers. One of the great idiosyncratic masterminds in history’s cinema, Kubrick has cultivated a noteworthy genre completely his own. Critical discussions of humanity, morality and social justice all appear in his work regularly. Contextually disparate but psychologically banded, all of Kubrick’s films challenge the viewer both intellectually and ethically. A true auteur, Kubrick’s work pushes our understanding of human nature to severe place. Extreme violence, salaciousness and deranged psychological behavior are commonplace motifs instrumented to establish Kubrick’s pessimistic undertones. Even through satire, Kubrick manages to take levity to a place of lunatic proportion.

All the artists were allowed to select the film of their choosing, there were no guidelines on subject matter or content. Each artist was given free reign to re-interpret and render their take on Kubrick’s entire cinematic collection. Resulting in a variegated display, KUBRICK is an experiment in modernity, a cross-section between film and art.

KUBRICK- An Art Show Tribute will debut on Saturday, September 6th, from 6pm – 10pm. There is no cover charge, complimentary beverages will be served and some artists will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view until September 27th.

Participating artists include: Aaron Jasinski, Akira Beard, Alex Kirzhener, Anarkitty, Audrey Pongracz, Brian Ewing, Brian Methe, Bruce White, Christine Hostetler, Crowded Teeth, Cuddly Rigor Mortis, Cuyler Smith, Dave MacDowell, Gene Guynn, Guillaume Morellec, Irma Rivera, Jen Mann, Jesse Riggle, Johannah O’Donnell, John Wentz, Jon Wayshack, Kate Zambrano, Kate Copeland, Kiersten Essenpreis, Mandy Tsung, Michael Ramstead, Nicole Gustafsson, Robert Wilson, Sandi Calistro, Sarah Joncas, Tim Maclean, Veronica Fish, Epyon 5, , Jayde Fish, Meghan Stratman, Adam Maida, Brandon Schaefer, Chris Skinner, Chuck Sperry, Dan Black, David Moscati, Doug LaRocca, Eiko Ojala, Fernando Reza, Glen Brogan, James Gilleard, Jermaine Rogers, Jessica Deahl, Joshua Budich, Justin VanGenderen, Blunt Graffix, Oliver Barrett, Rhys Cooper, Sam Gilbey, Sam Ho, Sam Smith, Scott Mitchell, Tim Jordan, Tracie Ching, Bartosz Kosowski, Thomas Walker, Van Orton Design, New Flesh, Vincent Aseo, Geoff Trapp, Steve Yamane, Ivonna Buenrostro
