THE FRITE of SPRING video
made in collaboration w/ Richard Saja and HISTORICALLY INACCURATE
You stumble upon a clearing in the woods. Baby fawns drape you in garlands of spanish moss and spring hay. You can hear pan flutes and synthesizers somewhere in the distance. You spy cloven hoof prints in the dewy grass and follow them through the glade to the Bell House. The villagers have brought a disco ball for sacrifice. Satyrs and nymphs pirouette across the stage drawing runes in the dirt. We open up your head with a dowser stick and do the maypole with your brains.
Feather yourself in flora and fauna, commune with the earth and pilgrimage to CHERYL this month as we welcome the change of seasons and the arrival of spring with dance floor rituals from before time began. Dress like wallpaper. Picture Eden. Classical idylls. Harps, lyres and Hot Chip. Ancient facepaint.

Bosch pages 89 and 90
collage on watercolor paper.
Each panel is 8 5/8 x 5 7/8 inches
The images in the collage come from a book titled Hieronymus Bosch by Walter S. Gibson. The sheets come from two different editions of the same book, thus the difference in the paper qualities, and are cut out from the same page in each book. They come from the reverse sides of each other. The black and white illustration from page 89 is from the exterior panels of the Garden of Earthly Delights triptych which depicts, in shades of grey, god creating earth inside of a glass sphere. The color illustration from page 90 is from the interior left panel which depicts the garden at the moment when the god figure introduces Adam to Eve and other stuff like animals and fountains and delightfully sunny lawns.
gesso on inscribed self-hardening clay and board
14 1/2 x 12 7/8 inches (irregular)
edition # 5 of 10
This work comes with a booklet that describes its use
and relationship to the work by Heironymous Bosch from which this design is taken.
