Erik den Breejen Smile at FREIGHT & VOLUME

James Kalm never surfed in California, never drove a "Little Deuce Coupe" and never dated a surfer girl, but these images, created by Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys, provided a beautiful fantasy sound track for a big chunk of his adolescence. Eric den Breejen also came under the sway of this West Coast band, and has spent the last year or two making painting in homage to "Smile" Brian Wilson's legendary unreleased album. Using blocks of text and color shifts, the paintings exist somewhere between a song script and a blown up Pop Art cartoon. The works might be a manifestation of the idiom "one picture is worth a thousand words" or conversely "words are worth a thousand pictures", especially if the harmony is good.
