Childish Gambino (12.12.18 San Jose) Artist and Variant Editions
Jermaine Rogers was commissioned to create the official print for the recent Childish Gambino show in San Jose, California. This is a 24x18 in. screen print. Show copies of the print that were available at the event sold out instantly. Now, the limited 'Artist' and 'Variant' editions are available, direct from the artist.
This print features striking imagery which Jermaine says, "reflects the desperate and pensive state of mind that is a regular condition in some of our lives. The particular portion of the 'This Is America' video upon which this image is based occurs at the very end, and was especially potent for me. I couldn't shake it for days afterwards. It reminded me of the fact that I live with a sort of 'breathless' type of fear, which wallows just beneath the surface. And it's there most of the time. It's a worrying, stressful thing. You never want to betray any unsteadiness or fear in this world, because these streets are full of civilized animals, looking to exploit that type of thing. So, you keep that shit on lock-down most of the time, which isn't healthy at all...because it eats away at your guts. But sometimes it's too much. You get worried...and you get scared. Quiet panic. When I saw the end of that video, with the running and that terror on Glover's face...I literally said to myself out loud, 'I know.'"
