Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This is the fourth, in a series, following previous version “Rock n Roll Star”, “10 Year Itch” & "Fun at the Fun Fair!", and has been inspired by the romantic film “Dirty Dancing (1987)" and the song “I’ve had the time of my Life”.

This features Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) on vacation at a Holiday Resort during the Summer of 1963, where she meets the dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) for dance lessons.

This is set in the last scene of the film where Johnny utters the famous line “Nobody puts Baby in the Corner!” and takes Baby out the corner to perform the last of the season song together to the song “I’ve had the time of my Life”. Baby runs of stage and jumps into the arms of Johnny, where he lifts her into the iconic balanced pose, featured in this work.

Johnny is standing on a Disco Dance-floor, gridded into squares, and represents a secret message in Binary Code. An infill square of either, Blue, Red or Yellow indicates a 1 in the Binary Code, such that from left to right it will display a Letter from the Alphabet, and forms words. Also, inspired by the Disco dance floor lights of the 1970s and later work of Angela Bulloch.

I have been inspired by simple outline drawings, in thick ink, with infill textures, and comic text, such as the work by Roy Lichtenstein, Michael Craig-Martin and Julian Opie, Angela Bulloch.

*** Offer Any Three works, "...because you're Gorgeous...nobody puts Baby-Bird in the Corner!", "Rock n Roll Star!", "Fun at the Fun Fair!" and "10 Year Itch", for the price of Two, of £120, while Stocks Lasts.
