Status at CP

Ali, who has to be America's number one consumer of Frederix 12"x12" canvas panels, appeared on Coudal's Fresh signals a month or two ago, so she reciprocated with a fine rendering of a T-bone for the Swap Meat. We were pretty excited to get one of her free paintings, and without having to go through the embarassing farce of paying for it, so bartering via Swap Meat was the perfect answer. Most of us being from the vinyl generation, there's something magical about the size and weight of this piece; we sort of expect a record to drop out of the side of it. Maybe there's a Swap Meat Symphony out there, looking for an album cover. Keep it up, Ali, America needs all the quality free paintings she can get.

Back to the Shop.
