‘I Don’t Want To Go To Heaven’ is a Giclee print with silkscreen glazes by art duo The Connor Brothers. From a limited edition of 150, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Fictional twin art duo The Connor Brothers - aka Franklyn and Brendan Connor -satirical and humorous work explores the blurring of boundaries between truth and fiction. Mimicking vintage book cover imagery, often from romantic novels or Shakespeare classics, the artists reproduce the covers as large scale acrylic and oil paintings, modifying the book titles with their own text, changing the message while maintaining the context.
‘I Don’t Want To Go To Heaven’ depicts a seductive, 1950s woman, adorned in a low-cut black dress, with waves of platinum blonde hair framing her face and cherry red lips pouting toward the viewer. Set against a textured blue background, the title words have been printed in blocky, white lettering, recalling sultry film noir posters with a postmodern twist.
