The Lebowski Cycle – Jester (Detail)

Detail - Jester (After Velazquez's Portrait of Pablo de Valladolid) • Joe Forkan oil on linen, 48" x 76" (121.92 cm x 193.04 cm)

I just received some new photos of The Lebowski Cycle paintings that I had shot while the Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion exhibition was still up. Photographer Susan Einstein did a great job and I got many very clear detail shots like the one above (the complete painting is here.) I’ll be swapping out some of the post images for some of the clearer ones from this shoot, and posting more process info on the paintings soon.

The show is down now, but most of the paintings (and a few additional ones) are going to travel to an exhibition of The Lebowski Cycle at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, FL

That exhibition opens at the end of February 2012.

More on that soon.
