NY: Psychedelic Solution, 1995.
A complete set, plus extras and variants, of invitations and announcements for the 23 exhibitions held at the Psychedelic Solution Gallery between 1986 and 1995. This is the first state of the packaging for these cards, in a gray envelope with a yellow label printing a Rick Griffin illustration in purple affixed to the front. This is the first time the cards were gathered as a set. Includes announcements for shows by Robert Williams, Victor Moscoso, Mark Mothersbaugh, Rick Griffin, H. R. Giger, Pushead, Joe Coleman, Lee Conklin, Wes Wilson, the Cure of Souls blotter art show, Stanley Mouse, and others. Altogether 32 cards that are dazzlingly psychedelic and well executed whether utilizing drawings, photographs, or graphics. Also included is a checklist of the contents. During the course of the nine years they were staging exhibitions, the Psychedelic Solution offered a diverse range of artists and redefined psychedelic art by being inclusive of everything from tatoo art to Huichol yarn paintings. A terrific zeitgeist item documenting the psychedelic art scene during the '80s and '90s, and rare in the original first state packaging as issued and sold at the gallery. As new (minor wear to envelope).
