It came as no surprise to me that the films of Wes Anderson have inspired countless pieces of art — but Jurassic Park? Really? This is what I love about the world: someone's always thinking of something I would never think of..Brandon Bird and Julia Vickerman recently curated The JP Show (Just People), "an exhibit dedicated to what people love and remember most about the Jurassic Park film series: the human characters". Namely: Goldblum. The first work you see here is not a photo-realistic painting. It is a photo. Jeff Goldblum sat to have his portrait taken by artist Robyn Von Swank, making this, in Brandon Bird's words, "the only Goldblum-endorsed humans-only Jurassic Park art show". Finally! Moving on to more Goldblum...
- IAN MALCOLM: FROM CHAOS is an oil painting by John Larriva- the original is sold, but limited-edition signed prints are available for $50!
- NAGELSATTLER by Tyler Jacobs is so Nagel-fabulous I can't stand it. A print might be just what your bathroom or beauty salon needs.
- Can I be honest? I can't remember what part of the movie PARKKRAP (LEX) by John Olsen is referencing. It's been, like, 18 years. I love the colors, though! This painting has been sold.
- There are lots more great pieces here, but I couldn't resist finishing up with one more Goldblum: HIS JURASSIC PAST, again by Robyn Von Swank. Contact her if you'd like a print!
