    Mixed media on canvas

    Signed, titled and dated on the reverse

    PROVENANCE:
    Clementine Gallery, New York, October 2001

    NOTE:
    Chicago-based artist Sam Prekop is known to most as the lead singer and songwriter of The Sea and Cake. He is a painter of some renown, a photographer, and, in addition, he has released solo albums of pop songs infused with his own blend of African and Brazilian guitar rhythms. For some of his LPs and CDs, he produced an edition of hand-painted covers which have strong affinities with the two works in the Pillsbury collection that were purchased from Clementine Gallery, the dealer responsible for staging his first solo exhibition in New York. He explained, "In painting the covers I found an appropriate shorthand to describing the music or re-imagining it. Start with nothing and without deduction an image appears reflecting only itself, the music arrived similarly."


    Estimate: $800 - $1,200.
