James Flames Lost Locke Print for The Official Bad Robot Art Experience Gallery Show World Premier Exclusive



Without a doubt one of the greatest villains in TV history is Locke from the series Lost. James Flames chose him as the subject of his print titled "Two Players. Two Sides. One is Light. One is Dark." for the Official Bad Robot Art Experience Show

I interviewed James about the creation of the print and he said the print plays on the duality of good & bad through the light and dark stones that keep appearing in the story line. If you remember on the beach Locke taught Walt about Backgammon, Jacob and The Man in Black played as children as well and the game turned up several more times through the series.  Light and Dark stones were also found by Locke in the cave with Sawyer. Locke leads Sawyer to a cave, inside of which is a set of scales holding one black and one white stone. Locke takes the white stone and throws it into the sea, referring to it as an inside joke. Locke leads Sawyer deeper into the cave, where there are several surnames written on the ceiling and walls.

James carried the idea through into the making of the print also. The regular print is on Midnight Blue Paper (Dark) and it also glows in the dark (Light)

The regular edition and variant are both 18 x 24 inches. The regular edition is a 7 color screen print including glow in the dark ink with an edition of only 100. The variant is 3 colors including glow in the dark ink with an edition of only 5.

The Official Bad Robot Art Experience group art show opens in Los Angeles tomorrow night. Featuring a collection of artwork inspired by the films and TV shows of writer, producer and director J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company. The show’s opening reception is Friday, April 26, 2013 from 7 PM to 10 PM at Gallery1988′s new location (7308 Melrose Avenue) and will run until Saturday, May 18th.
