WTF?!? FILES///ART & COMMERCE///PHOTOS OF STEPHEN POWERS/ESPO’S CONEY ISLAND ARTWORK FOR SALE AT CRATE & BARREL
In a move seemingly made especially for the WTF?!? Files, mass market home furnishings retailer CRATE & BARREL has recently made available for sale an ink-on-canvas print of a photograph of the Coney Island snack shop signs hand painted by STEPHEN POWERS (aka: ESPO) back in 2005 as part of CREATIVE TIME‘s Coney renovation project, THE DREAMLAND ARTISTS CLUB. Shot by photographer ERIN CLARK, the image is available through the company’s “hip” CB2 imprint for the rock bottom price of $249 USD and comes signed by the photographer with a list of the Clark’s accomplishments printed on the reverse, yet curiously, no mention of Stephen Powers or the Dreamland Artists Club:
“Hot diggety dog. Armed with a camera and an appetite for nostalgia, artist and NY native Erin Clark captured this kitschy Coney Island summer tableau. Reproduced in ink on canvas and stretched on a wood frame for hanging. Artist signature; bio on back informs Clark’s work has been shown in various solo and group exhibitions.
Collectors take note: This one-time-only limited edition of prints will not be re-issued, so don’t miss out.
•A kitschy detail shot reminiscent of childhood summers
•Printed on high-quality canvas
