Tonight is the first show of the SOLD OUT three night stand at Alexandra Palace in London. Chuck Sperry did a poster for each night, and he here’s what he had to say about the set: “I was inspired by The Black Keys song ‘Gold on the Ceiling’ which comes across to me as a song about fate and success.
The posters depict The Three Fates – Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos. Clotho spins the thread of life, Lachesis measures its length, and Atropos cuts the life thread at the end.
I printed the lifework in Eye-Fry Blue on the Fluorescent Red figures. The optical effect is very bizarre. There’s an illusion of depth in the figures that looks like they are floating on the paper.”
I will be making a very limited release of this poster (cut and uncut) on Sunday, February 12, 2012 at a random time.
