Marching Band Does It Again is the first time a Leo Gabin painting has been made into a print. The original 80" x 60" piece was part of their second solo show "Tallahassee" at Peres Projects in Berlin. The exhibition was centered on Leo Gabin's first feature film A Crackup At the Race Riots, based on the eponymous novel by Harmony Korine. While the book never localizes itself with a specific place, Korine has mentioned that the story took place in and around Florida. Marching Band Does It Again encapsulates the essence of the Sunshine State: while initially bright and warm, the graffiti-like strokes overlay classic black-and-white photography, conveying the paradox of suburban angst, a notion often replayed within the work of Leo Gabin.
Framing options are black or white painted wood, 7/8" wide flat face and 7/8" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
