"Rat Fink's Revenge"
A Tribute to Ed "Big Daddy" Roth
June 7 - 30, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday, June 7th; 8-11 PM

La Luz de Jesus Gallery

Big Daddy has left something that will live on forever. After forty years, Rat Fink fever has gotten in our heads, on our speedways, in our skateparks–there is no cure. We've gone on to become artists, filmmakers, mechanics, executives. He's become an action figure, a bobble head, a rececar, a doll, and has achieved timeless cult status along the way. At first it may have seemed that Rat Fink was originally drawn for us to laugh at, as a throw away carton. Now he's the one laughing–Rat Fink's Revenge indeed.

This collection of 40 Rat Fink statues is taken from the book compiled by David Chodosh. The project originated as a way for the author and four score contemporary artists to exorcize their inner Fink–the sick monster inside who needs to come out and show itself to the world. All the contributors, for whom Rat Fink is part of their soul, were given the same 12" resin model kit to customize.

La Luz de Jesus in partnership with David Chodosh, is proud and honored to present this collection based on Ed Roth's most notorious Custom Monster.
