‘If It’s Not Weird I’m Not Interested’ 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.
‘If It’s Not Weird I’m Not Interested’ depicts the legs of a woman, slumped at the bottom of a staircase, her head and torso cropped beyond the frame, as swathes of peach silk tumble around her. Set against a textured, abstract background of red, black and grey panels, the title words have been printed in blocky, white lettering, recalling sultry film noir posters with a postmodern twist.
