My Submission to Postcards from the Edge, NYC

Peter Combe, Damien Hirst at SFMOMA, 2011 

Above is my submission to Postcards from the Edge, NYC. When I saw Andy Bosselman’s photo of San Francisco based artist, Xiang Gao outside SFMOMA – I cracked up and knew I wanted to incorporate Damien Hirst‘s noggin.

Postcards from the Edge is an exhibit and benefit sale of over 1500 one-of-a-kind postcard-size works of art by established and emerging artists. All artworks at Postcards from the Edge benefit are exhibited anonymously. The works are signed on the back only and though viewers receive a list of all participating artists, they don’t know who created which piece until purchased.

Postcards from the Edge will be hosted at Cheim & Read from January 6-8, 2012

Seems Berkley Rep found my ‘Freezing to Kushner‘ post in cyberspace and posted a response on their Blog. Moments ago, I received the most delightful email from a fellow called Christopher at Berkeley Rep. It was so delightful infact, that I have produced a sequel to my original Berkeley Rep T-shirt design…

Freezing to Kushner

Posted in souvenirs subversifs by petercombe on November 1, 2009

My niece from UK and I went to see Tony Kushner’s ‘Tiny Kushner’ at the Thrust Stage in Berekeley last Thursday. The 5 short plays did not disappoint. The Arctic chill of the theatre sure did. Those in the audience near us were doing the best they could to wrap themselves in warmth, my neck felt like a block of ice. Both myself and an older woman down a couple of seats kept dozing off. I’ve heard that when you freeze to death, first you fall to sleep. My complaint to the stage manager fell on deaf ears and so…I was inspired…
