ABOUT THE ART
"For our portraits, I thought Ron & I should be live-action onstage. I painted ourselves on canvas in black and silver (silver paint & silver metal leaf.) I closely recreated of a photo of myself. Ron’s image is a composite of photos and memories. It is as close to reality as it had been onstage. Just the facts."
"For my addition to Niagara’s art, I riffed upon newspaper headlines and punk flyers with my own pattern elements woven in as well. To me, punk has always been about provocation and an ability to work both inside and outside the framework of mass culture. I love Niagara’s subversive sense of humor, so I did my best Niagara impersonation with the fake newspaper headline ‘Let There Be Dark.’"
