Salt Lake City, UT: . Calendar. SIGNED. 13 folio sheets [48 cm x 34 cm] comb-bound at the head. Thin 6" mark to rear cover. Near fine. Item #59993
Signed by the artist at the foot of the cover, and additionally signed by eight of the models, on their respective months. The two elements featured in this series of twelve oil paintings, Utah landscapes and 30s & 40s era pin up girls, become unfamiliar by way of their juxtaposition in each work. With tongue firmly in cheek, Call's girls make a nod to his background as an urban/graffiti artist as they whitewash, obliterate, and just simply overpower their surroundings. Attack of the fifty-foot women meets the sagebrush rebellion.
