Following the fine response to my Sex Wax sculptures here is what happened.
My car went into the shop in early spring. Nothing major, but in it went. Not thinking of it, I left a few packs of wax on the dash. Then chance had it spring came and over a weekend melted the wax packs on my dash leaving a nice beautiful flow of wax running down the vents over the stereo and forming a beautiful stalagmite on the ashtray.
Sooo cool, I thought. And then right there on the floor of the passenger seat were a few empty cans of Dr. Pepper rushing my nostalgic brain to remembering my first Dr. Pepper. It was given to me by legendary Danish skater, Frank Messmann, who had just returned from the states with a case of Dr. Pepper! It was a sunny day at Isreals Plads in Copenhagen. He also gave me a pair of Converse All Stars in grey leather. So thank you, Frank. And “Thank you, Frank”, “Thank you, Frank. Again” and “No really thank you, Frank” was born.
So far they have been shown in Copenhagen, Cologne and Basel. I plan on showing some in Miami at the Nada Fair this coming December with Klaus Von Nichtssagend Gallery.
