Saturday Night Special is a special print release for BASK's Solo exhibition at 323East Gallery that opens April 23rd. For more info on the exhibition visit 323East.

In this image the woman is casually framed by ghostlike mechanical engines and an ambiguous ocean of objects swirls beneath her eyes - the latter element resembling the schema of a computer's mainframe as delineated by things suspiciously similar to spermatazoa. Is the mask meant to conceal identity or does it hide the marks of some past crime?

Original artwork available.

Bask is the moniker of one, Ales Bask Hostomsky, who along with his parents emigrated from Czechoslovakia to Florida and began to soak up America’s popular iconic imagery along with the sun.

Bask quickly began to notice similarities between the communistic iconic propaganda from his youth and the consumer advertising of his teens. He soon discovered that they were simply, two sides of the same coin. Each vying for our short-lived attention spans, all the while selling us (or telling us?) anything and everything from Marxism to McDonalds. Seeking conspiracies -and finding them embedded in the popular iconography of the mass media, Bask began painting bold, media critical broadsides to assuage his fear of being manipulated. A fear cultivated in a repressive regime, had now returned, but to the most unlikely and safest of places- The American living room.
