The Show of the summer is approaching!!! What is it you ask?
SIMPSONS WAVE is the name, and its happening on SATURDAY AUGUST 19th,2017 7pm at ARC Gallery! Local Chicago artist, Erica Brooks’ large size ( 3ft x 4ft and up) Simpsons inspired pastels are a unique of some of the most iconic Simpsons imagery.
WHAT IS SIMPSONS WAVE?
“So what exactly is Simpsonwave? Basically, Simpsonwave constitutes a genre of YouTube videos that collage classic “Simpsons” moments with vaporwave tracks. The clips from “The Simpsons” are often heavily edited, given a codeine purple filter, a static-y VHS feel, and generally arranged with psychedelia in mind. Overlaid on these clips are the classic vaporwave sounds of John Carpenter synths, cheesy muzak saxophones, and skittering drum machines, making the otherwise strange edits feel complete. The mashup of the both is startlingly relaxing. Those early seasons of “The Simpsons” are reeking with ‘90s nostalgia and flashes of surrealism, while vaporwave accesses something deeper in that energy, tapping into a sort of dreamy ennui.”
WHAT IS SIMPSONS WAVE THE EXHIBITION?
Because The Simpsons are an already established brand, I will not be making anymore Simpsons based pastels. The inspiration of for this show are websites like, http://www.bootlegbart.com/, Simpsons Wave music, and Portlandia episode, Fashion, which includes a cameo with creator Matt Groening.
This Exhibition is my own contribution to the Simspons Wave Movement.
