NY: Psychedelic Solution, 2003.
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 third state of the packaging for these cards, in a red envelope with a b&w label printing a Rick Griffin illustration affixed to the front. In 2003 the gallery gathered their announcement cards into a set for the third time, and this group includes 4 cards not in the first sets done in 1995. 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 36 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 scarce in the original packaging as issued and sold at the gallery. As new (minor wear to envelope).
