The Jinn

JINN (genies) are supernatural creatures in Arabic mythology. Jinn is derived from the semitic root "jinn" meaning "to hide or conceal". These shape-shifting spirits are made of fire or air, and can embody both human and god-like characteristics, and thus can mix and even mate with humans. They are known to be seductive, and can be helpers, tricksters, or demons. In early Arabia they were thought to inspire poets and soothsayers. Some say they are hunted by angels and wolves, who can see them when others cannot. 

This piece holds my appreciation for how these creatures were hunted in various tales... and survived. As a gay man growing up in 80's and 90's I imagined a kind of kinship with the Jinn as I eventually got the nerve to come out later on in life. What better creature to inspire queer courage than a powerful flaming spirit?

This project merges my visual work as "My Pet Skeleton" with my musical collaboration with "Johnny Hollow". It culminated in a cd package that contains 5 paintings with 5 songs based on 5 strange tales. Each print comes with a signed copy of "The Old Gods of New Berlin" CD/Book that was painstakingly designed and formatted by yours truly.  (see flip through video below)


Each print is signed and numbered by yours truly and is created with archival pigment inks on fine heavyweight, museum quality paper.

Each piece will be carefully packed inside an acid free sleeve and fully protected by a VERY thick craft tube.

WHAT IS A GICLÉE PRINT?

A giclée print is created with special fade-resistant archival inks and printed on acid free textured paper stock. They are also known as museum quality prints since they have a similar life span as most original water colors (depending, of course, on the lighting conditions). Each piece is hand titled and signed by the artist in pencil. If you are a collector and want this work to retain it's value (or more), this is your best option. All of my giclée prints are printed in LIMITED EDITIONS. 

WHAT IS A LIMITED EDITION?

A limited edition means that there are only a certain number of prints created. The specific number of the edition is identified in the bottom left hand corner of each piece. 

WHAT IS AN OPEN EDITION?

An open edition means that there is no set number of prints created.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR ME TO GET MY ORDER?

All orders will be packed and shipped within 3 days of your purchase. Shipping times may vary but normally you will receive your package within 2 weeks of shipping. For international orders without a tracking number it can take 2-6 weeks.

HOW IS THE WORK SHIPPED? 

If the work is larger than 10" by 10" it will be carefully packed in an acid free slip and rolled into a super hefty kraft tube. If it's smaller than 10" by 10" it will be packed between 2 very thick pieces of cardboard and mailed flat*.

*if you have bought a large print AND a smaller print, then both pieces will be shipped in the same tube, unless one of those items is a giclée miniature, then both items will be sent flat OR separately (at no extra cost to you).
