Friends of mine are aware I have the unfortunate talent of remembering obscure details. This print of two open matchbooks is iconic of such details. The words were penned by my friend Chris in 1997 one evening while socializing after work. Chris is notorious for pulling ideas from the sky, writing things down and punctuating with his signature.
Immediately precious, the matchbooks found their way to my pocket and later into safe storage. The text reads, “My dream is to have sex’ with Selma Hayatt [Salma Hayek] and after she lights up a cigar and we smoke it!!” and “If I had to be anyone else other than me, I would be the ORB and wear tiny round glasses and play song #3 clouds!”
Salma Hayek is self-explanatory and the Orb is an electronic music group. We were listening to an EP of “Little Fluffy Clouds”; now you have an insight into our mindset during that time.
The edition is limited to 15 prints (print is 6″x8″ sheet is 9″x12″); price $20.00 each. Contact me for availability.
