When Rivet's Scott Kuenzli introduced Bob and I to Scott Campbell during November Gallery Hop at the reception for his solo show, Scott C. doodled a little Mark Mothersbaugh on the print we purchased of his Devo/Space Invaders mash-up and mentioned a blog he’d recently started about great movie showdowns. I’ve yet to fulfill my promise to send him some suggestions, but I did get to check out the blog, and it’s a big treat for movie and lowbrow art lovers. Here’s his most recent post, inspired by Beetlejuice (caption below); the archive has some really fun and unexpected pairings, like the Chief and the sink from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Spinal Tap and a tiny Stonehenge statue, and Super Size Me's Morgan Spurlock vs. an Extra Value Meal.
Scott C.’s work is also available for gifting. Check with Rivet on original works, or read this blogspot post from Scott on other options online, including a 5-print set of “Showdowns” - but act fast to make the shipping deadlines.
“THAT is why I won’t do two shows a night anymore, I won’t.”
