This piece is part series of work Hochbaum began in 2018. He calls the series "A Solid Friendship". This was a phrase that came to his mind while creating a tribute work dedicated to a dececed close friend. After scrawling the text into the work he followed up the idea with the 19 part edition of small works.
Each of the small works focuses on a specific person, place, or moment that holds significant importance to thge artist.
They are mixed media collages using techniques like carbon transfers, acrylic painting, inks and pencils.
All of the works in this series is also coated in Hochbaum's own homemade wax encaustic made from beeswax, dammar, and carnauba wax.
"Everyday Ferry" is #12 of the group. The sentiment "See you in hell" has made a few appearances in Hochbaum's work.
The work is on a 1/4" MDF board and is presented here in a custom handmade guilded pine frame.
Total dimensions: 8.5" x 10" x 2.5"
