Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Giclee Prints from Palm Springs:
The original run of 300 prints (published by M Modern Gallery) has long been sold out by the gallery.
But, Cherry still has a small limited number of these prints available from her own private collection.
The original painting was Acrylic and Mixed Media on Panel.
She will hand deliver and personalize the print for you!
Cherry's first visit to Palm Springs was a spa weekend at the Spa Hotel.
This was years ago when it was still in its full glory with the glamorous
white canopy awning on the corner of Tahquitz and Indian Canyon.
To the right was a classic concrete screen and parallel to the walkway on the left
clear Modern reflecting pools went right through the front entrance wall to create
an indoor/outdoor water filled ambience.
"It was my first visit to a real spa and I was not disappointed with the clean tiled mineral baths
that took me back to an age of elegance in a city yet to rediscover its historic past.
My room looked out towards Deep Well, a delicious dinner at the Agua Room was on the house.
And dare I say it – I made a visit to the "clothing optional" solarium."
"Even though the hotel has lost much of its original look and feel, in my heart and memory,
the image of that facade will always be the epitome of Palm Springs Modern style."
Cherry Capri's work is inspired by vintage matchbook art from the 1950s and 1960s.
The work also serves to educate viewers about the history and preservation of Mid-Century Modern history, architecture and signage.
Cherry Capri is a quirky punk-red haired performance artist and cult celebrity.
Her life is a world of retro inspired fashion, tikis, exotica music, low-brow art, classic cars,
and Las Vegas Rat Pack era shenanigans.
Cherry writes a monthly advice column for Tiki Magazine and CA Modernism Magazine and
her Royal Majesty Cherry was even once crowned Queen of the Pasadena Doo Dah Parade!
