MICHAEL KRUEGER - "Evil Acid"
MICHAEL KRUEGER, Titled “Evel Acid, archival digital print and lithography w/ hand cutting and perforation, 12.5” x 11”, 2007 limited edition – 10 sets of prints, only 4 available.
This image is a recreation of a sheet of blotter acid complete with perforations between each acid hit. The blotter acid sheet was printing out using a high-end archival digital printer. The image of Evel Knieval was overprinted using the tradition print media lithography.
The Full Metal Journals prints are digital printouts of Michael Krueger’s original high school notebooks with hand-drawn lithographic images printed over them. The notebooks are subtly manipulated in PhotoShop altering the surface to make room for a new image. The new images printed over the digital facsimiles of the notebooks are personal free associations combined with more directed images that conjure war, drug culture and early American history. The updated notebooks are rich with psychological dementia describing past and current cultural paranoia.
