Gee Vaucher and Penny Rimbaud, collective members of CRASS and early stencil pioneers, will be in San Francisco this weekend. Their logo may be one of the most famous stencils from the 1970s punk scenes. Gee also recently told me that CRASS also altered billboards with stencils during the same period.

FORE is a collection of 14 years worth of image/ word associations--original stencil illustrations coupled with four-letter words. The pairings range from the pedantic and apparent to the obtusely personal--nodding to pop culture, politics and adolescent vulgarity. Collectively, these illustrations and text form FORE--an invitation to vandalism and creativity masquerading as a 26-word homage to 21st century youth that moonlights as a picture dictionary trying to make it as a handmade artist book.

Boxi creates hand cut multi layered life size stencils that he exhibits in galleries and on street walls. It is often their placement within the installation or urban landscape that completes and defines their action, enabling the work to interact with the space. It is within this collaboration that the material boundaries of the work are dissolved, affecting the perception of the image.
