date : 2006
size : 8½” x 11½”
medium : collage.
notes : Another recurring motif in Jones' works, are his series of ‘subverts’ produced over the years. This piece transforms the classic Rodchenko beer ad, into an anti-mobile phones warning.
comment : “The original is great; coulda cribbed-it very quickly in Photoshop, but preferred to spend the time cutting-out every single piece with a scalpel. This was both to tip-the-hat to Rodchenko, and to end-up with a piece of artwork, instead of just another disc. I'm anti-radiation, and refuse to have a mobile; I know dudes who've had tumours and worse. People already know about the delights and downfalls of beer, but seem delighted with their mobiles. A scandal by any other name”.
