Here’s another look at Andrew DeGraff’s new body of work, this time a painting mapping out the classic horror movie “The Shining.” I know this one may seem less intricate or busy as the others you’ve seen, but do me a favor…LOOK AT THE HEDGE MAZE. He got down every turn!!!

The show opens tomorrow night, March 29th, from 7-10 PM at G1988 (East). Come join us, and the artist, as we STARE at his work for hours.

This Saturday night, we open “Cartography,” a solo show from Philadelphia-based artist Andrew DeGraff, at G1988 (East). I feel like we’ve been holding this piece back for a year, waiting to promote the show, and now here’s the day.

Calling this just “a painting” is like calling Lord of the Rings just “a movie.” This piece is about 53 inches x 31 inches, and framed it comes out to be about 5 feet x 3 feet. Andrew has completely mapped out, rendering every location and character path for, the ENTIRE Lord of the Rings trilogy. For those who don’t understand the insanity of that process, last year the artist spoke to Germain Lussier for Backstory Magazine and said this - 

"I watch [the films] a lot, probably the equivalent of 20-30 times. I start out watching it and listing scenes, basically reverse engineering a plot outline. I then watch it again, pausing and noting the time of specific scenes when there’s a good shot of an interior or ship. I then start sketching it out on graph paper so it’s proportional as well as figuring out a ratio for a fixed, flat perspective grid, and start laying out the major landmarks."

This piece easily took him around 300 hours to complete. THAT’S INSANE. It HAS to be seen if you can get to the gallery. There will be a limited signed poster AND a limited signed and numbered HUGE giclee print of this LOTR piece available.

The show opens Saturday night, from 7-10 PM, at G1988 (East) and will run through April 19th.
