Canvas Print

Albert Lee (arbot)

Wednesday Addams

by Albert Lee
DESCRIPTION

Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.

ABOUT THE ART

This piece was made for a variety of reasons. As simplistic as it sounds, I began by making an illustration that was merely indicative of the month of October. As I spent some time mulling over potential concepts, I eventually gravitated towards one idea that exuded the most personal significance, Wednesday Addams. My sisters and I grew up watching shows like the Addams Family in the 80's. We often felt drawn to characters that shared the same awkwardness and otherness that we experienced. Wednesday Addams' persona seemed to encapsulate some of my memories of growing up in Poughkeepsie, NY. Quiet, withdrawn, and preoccupied with death (a friend of mine passed away at the age of 8), I really didn't seem to be interested in the things that intrigued the kids in our neighborhood. I also chose the Addams Family because I felt as though the strength of their familial ties was reflective of our own. Despite each of their distinct eccentricities, each member was privy to a unique bond that made them an integral part of the whole. It took me about 6 hours to complete.

Since Halloween was on Wednesday in 2012, it stands to reason that it will be on Pugsley this year. :D Great piece.
Albert Lee commented on January 30, 2013 9:43am
Possibly. Though Pubert is definitely in the running along with cousin Itt. Thanks for the kind words, Joel. :)

I love her
Albert Lee commented on April 9, 2013 2:23pm
Not sure what it is but it seems like a lot of people who grew up during the 80's early nineties gravitated towards characters like her. I definitely loved that show and others that depicted a not so idealized family with quirky/strange individuals.

Wow, thanks for sharing this Albert. I love that you wrote all that. I don't often see artists include background info on their pieces like this.
Albert Lee commented on May 5, 2013 11:07pm
Jango, thanks for the encouragement and kinds words. I am pretty introverted and not known for sharing my personal thoughts. I am grateful that others can relate to those feelings and as well and that some have even shared their own experiences with me.
