RATTLE & SHAKE
It’s almost instinctual to grab a lager as soon as the summer sun rises. Jake Gerth began the project with an interpretation of a summer road trip, gassing up the clunker and hoping you make it to the final destination.
Jake ended with a piece of art that was outside of his comfort zone. Rattle & Shake is that wind in your hair, and certainly a quick departure from whatever you had planned for the day. Jake went through several variations and concepts before landing on the adventurous highway full of different colors and patterns.
Jake’s frameshop on Main Street has been an adventure for the artist himself. The shop has allowed Jake to focus on the business side of things, the day-to-day financial reassurance we all strive for. It has taken him in and out of his own art. This project, an excuse for Jake to get back into making art, was a new adventure.
Rattle & Shake is a reminder that the road isn’t always straight. Sometimes it takes a few bumps to truly enjoy that perfect moment of sweet sunshine.
