2006 Signed Original Magic Marker Drawing Size 9x11.5 of a Skull Flower with Gold Tooth
"Gold Tooth Skull Flower," an original marker drawing by Tara McPherson, is a striking example of modern street pop artwork that blends the macabre with the delightful. Created in 2006, this signed piece, measuring 9x11.5 inches, illustrates a skull flower characterized by a single gold tooth—a symbolic feature that offers a glimpse into McPherson's unique artistic universe. Rendered in pink and purple marker on card stock paper, the drawing exemplifies McPherson's approach to her subjects, which often intertwines themes of the surreal with human emotions. The skull, a symbol frequently associated with mortality and the transience of life, is given a new lease on life by transforming it into a flower—a representation of growth, beauty, and renewal. The gold tooth adds a playful twist to the otherwise sad symbol of the skull, injecting humor and lightness into the piece. This juxtaposition is a common thread in McPherson's work, where she seamlessly merges contrasting themes to create artwork that is both thought-provoking and accessible. This work stands out in street pop art for its distinctive style and the engaging way it invites viewers to reinterpret familiar symbols. McPherson's art often graces both the walls of city streets and the halls of galleries, reflecting the growing acceptance and appreciation of street art within the broader art community. In "Gold Tooth Skull Flower," McPherson continues to explore the endless possibilities of simple materials such as magic markers, proving that impactful art is not confined to traditional mediums or methods. Her work remains a celebrated part of the street pop art movement, known for its ability to challenge perceptions and delight audiences with its whimsical take on the everyday.
