It’s a small collection of new works that make up “STUCK UP,” the exhibit that, as its tag line indicates, is a poster show for the poster movie that’s about the poster scene, in Houston. The film in question is Alex Luster’s Stick ’Em Up!, now available on DVD.
Michael C. Rodriguez’s contribution to the exhibit shows a brick wall covered with two of the film’s posters; a drawing in the graphic-novel style shows a young woman in the foreground looking fearful of the image behind her. The work is mostly black and white, with just a hint of red in the woman’s makeup. Several red-and-white Hello My Name Is… sticky tags cover GONZO247’s poster, which, like Rodriguez’s, is done on plain brown paper. Instead of names, the tags feature illustrations. Two faceless creatures curled up into fetal positions are on one, two smiling, round-eyed insects are on another.
