Gromit ,

Do you happen to know whether or not a serigraph of Mr. Blue was done ?




Note this island in the background . Looks almost like the one in Medusa !

Hey Sushiman, nice to hear from you!

To my knowledge, no. (Nice image!)

Someone should make an online catalog of all of Shag's prints.
This website from Shag's sometimes-publishers over at Copro-Nason,
has everything up until a couple of years ago:
http://www.copronason.com/shagweb/index.htm

Also, the book, "SHAG, LTD" has every Shag
print released until about 2005.
Shag, Ltd: Fine Art Limited Editions: A Catalogue Raisonne (Hardcover)
http://www.amazon.com/Shag-Ltd-Editions-Catalogue-Raisonne/dp/0867196475/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223919273&sr=8-10

Lovely book to look through and start coveting what others have.

I also see Shag reuses lots of elements, like the island.
The female in "Raft of Medusa" is a match for the one sitting
in the boat in "In Search of Tiki," and the figures in shadow
in "The Extraordinary Evening" were also in "The Discerning Guests,"
and the woman in the front left of "The Extraordinary Evening" is pretty
much a match in pose and facial expression to the woman in "Three Monkeys."

That may bother some people, but I love how it connects them all.
Repeated use of an element is something lots of artists do.

tiki-riviera,

You and I like "In Search of Tiki" for the same reason. I love all those
Tikis in the image. Could this even be a record for Shag of number of Tikis
in a single image released as a print?

Regarding the mountain in Medusa and Mr. Blue . You'll notice that in Medusa , the moon is on the left side ; there are 3 trees on the left and 7 on the right ; and the mountain peak slopes to the left . In Blue , the moon is on the right ; there are 3 trees on the right and 7 on the left ; and the peak slopes to the right . Whether or not this was done consciously by Shag or not , who knows ? But I feel that the scenes in Medusa and Blue take place on opposite sides of the same mountain , possibly even on the same night .

Shag's next Tiki-filled serigraph,"In Search of Tiki," coming in November:


Have to say I love the humor in this one, and all the tikis,
but I am torn about getting it because I prefer his images that
are more in the "Raft of the Medusa" color scheme.

Still, what do you folks think?

Love the tikis of course , but the amount in this new print is almost overkill . And I agree with you about the color scheme , however , the more I look at it the more I think it would contrast very nicely with the only print I have which is Medusa , and it even stars the same woman ! ; )
