This piece is using old timers knowledge, the precision of the gilding process, combined to new school techniques imported from my cultural background such as spray and marble painting.
The sign is retaking the classic codes of sign-painting to deliver the funeral message addressed to haters.
It also celebrates the fact that they tend to disappear out of the mind once we are focussed on creation.
Stay busy, keep the best, bury the rest.
Unique piece. Handmade enamel marble painting, 'Boston Style' beveled letters gilded on reverse glass. Big caslon typography, reworked by hand to obtain the convexity.
