If you order something from our online shop today, we thank you! We're a small, entirely artist-owned and operated shop. As you might imagine, we're running a little slower than usual in these uncertain times. You might experience a slight delay on your order and on the USPS ship time, but don't worry: we're on it!
Winter is a metaphor for the times in which we are traveling. Inspired by Chris Stain and Josh MacPhee’s interpretation of Gil Scott-Heron’s album which bears this title, I used a burning barrel which is evocative of some of the social themes Scott-Heron tackles. Economic hard times today are similar to those of the 1970’s, when “Winter in America” was written and recorded. Their impacts are made invisible in most landscapes. The fires lit in burning barrels symbolize the perseverance and mutual aid of the downtrodden.
Many artists, including many of us at Justseeds, are facing acute economic consequences as a result of the COVID19 pandemic:
cancelled art fairs, lost opportunities, dwindling sales. If you were thinking about supporting your friendly neighborhood radical artists’ cooperative by picking up a print, poster or book from our shop, now would be a great time, and much appreciated!
