Why this work is something you should consider purchasing
If you're anything like the anonymous collective of THE STOUT INDUSTRIAL COMPANY, you probably don't like buying shit or, when you do, you're either fucked up or just really jazzed about that object or thing. We get that.
This canvas reproduction of an original work comes from a series of paintings made in a motel room off south Broadway, in Englewood, CO, & subsequently in a paradise-inflected yard of a multi-family home off of Federal Boulevard, in Denver, Colorado.
The vocabulary is decidedly abstract; it looks to Joan Mitchell, de Kooning, Maria de Silva, Samson Flexor, Pollock Rothko Newman, Frankenthaler, Klee Cezanne Monet Manet Picasso. It is deeply engaged with Cecily Brown.
It responds with colors from the neighborhood in which I live & walk regularly: the Mexican dressmaker building, the restaurants, the lines painted on concrete with a year left, the rectilinear gentrification projects booming with each new bulldozed bungalow.
What we do that may or may not compel you to support the collective
This venture raises money for arts organizations & organizations supporting the wild plurality that refuses totalization under the current regime. We support art & artists, works & poor people, neighbors, strangers, whatever. The point is to raise capital, liquify it, funnel it to people doing things, & keep on. Thanks for "being here" but more, thanks for being.
