"La Luz de Germs" at the Vincent Price Art Museum...



I have been working with GERMS on a limited edition version of a floor lamp (only 4 in Edition One, with 1 artist's proof version, which is a variant of the final v1 edition), inspired by GERMS' paintings, which very often feature a floating, tentacled, luchador-inspired figure, which is the model for the lamp.

The four versions of the lamp will be on exhibit at the Vincent Price Art Museum, along with some new paintings by GERMS, as well as his site-specific work.

2011 prototype:



The 2013 versions feature hand-carved teak wood tentacles:





We are still waiting for the delivery of the hand-carved wood from Thailand, and then we have less than 3 weeks to complete the assembly and installation.

I'm a little bit nervous, as we come down to the wire, but have no doubt it will be wonderful.
