Amy Sol just posted an AMAZING painting on her blog. This piece is for the “I am 8 bit” show at Gallery 1988, and here is what she had to say about it:
“i choose the odd Mario 2 originating from the 1st NES. i liked that Princess Peach (originally Princess Toadstool) could be chosen as a play. i was certainly influenced by video games particularly in the mid 80s-early 90s .
and began playing at around 6-7 yrs old, i think.. mario bros 1-3 i enjoyed particularly during those years:)
my piece is titled ” Peach, Yoshi & Subcon the land of dreams” & measures 17″ 23″
the title is general but since i strayed so far from the original design, i suppose it helps to describe
it’s origins. oh and the girl is supposed to be princess peach, though i couldnt bare to paint a crown on her head.
this piece took about 3 months to finish.
finally here it is”
Let’s hope we see a print of this, it is my favorite Sol piece ever.
