GUIDED BY VOICES - PARADE
17.6 x 21.4 – 3 color silkscreen with split fountain – S/N edition of 100 – The band are notorious drunks and I wanted to link their stage antics to the ‘pink elephants on parade’ scene from the 1941 version of Dumbo. The pink elephants represent a drunken euphemism. I’ve seen GBV several times and once the band hits the stage, beer will be spilled, hallucinations will happen and with a little luck we’ll all be seeing pink elephants before the show is over. There is an under print of a dark alley beneath the black and pink that serves as an added layer of texture.
