Once a week FWN features a show poster from the Fort.
This week's featured show poster has that Paul Klee color palette that makes me think of all the sweet ass sherbet flavors this planet has to offer. That's another way to say, "I like this show poster so much I want to lick it to death!"
Doors are always open but the music starts at 9:30pm w/ Mr. Savage. As the poster indicates, this show is FREE!!!
Mind-blowing local Ft. Worth artist Devin Selby drew this dream-like image which was co-opted and converted to a show poster for tomorrow night.
I see a man donning a powdered wig, or what could possibly be his own long white hair. And he's in a bad way, like, straight chaos surrounds him while he chiefs on some super-kill East Asian opium.
Am I wrong? Probably, but that's what makes art, well... art. The patron sees what they see and there's no right or wrong.
Like in a dream, there's no right or wrong. There's no clear path. This guy, if anything, looks to be conflicted.
Or maybe not...
Maybe he's a nihilist and all that chaos buzzing around his head means absolutely nothing to him. He's perhaps comfortable knowing that life is but war and savagery and this portrait, this imagery, it's nothing but a moment of cathartic contemplation on the vastness of nothingness.
Whoa, hold on a sec, "war and savagery" = War Party + Joe Savage. Now where exactly Kevin fits into all this, I'm not sure. Perhaps the dream part; he's pretty dreamy, that Kevin.
Anyhow, the pen work and color work are about as excellent as one could hope for. Big cheers to Devin for creating this visually ruminative piece.
See ye tomorrow at TCRP!
about the word writer person:
Prewitt Scott-Jackson writes Dad poetry & short fiction when he's not hyping and typing for Fort Worth Noise. His writing can be found in Ghost City Press (New York), Five 2 One Magazine (Los Angeles), Prairie Schooner (University of Nebraska Press) and Sick Lit Magazine (Texas), among others. He prefers short walks on the beach because – and I quote – “It’s really hard to walk on sand.”
