Description

This and three other hand tinted prints by Walter Rockford Ferris, aka Rocky Ferris, were purchased in the summer of 1978 at the Ann Arbor, Michigan Arts Festival. They have been displayed in one residence or another in the family since that time. We disassembled this and the other pieces to clean, photograph, and replace the acid free backer, prior to listing in its original metal, period 70s frame.

This image is titled "1954 Corvette." It is a screen printed image, number 2 of 97, with applied water color, and white Conte' crayon. It depicts a view from the buyer's perspective of the steering wheel, dashboard, and surrounding cars on a car lot. The artist attends with passion, graphically, to the infinite details of the industrial design including the speedometer, the tachometer, oil pressure gauge, ... A ' vette enthusiast will feel like they are in the driver's seat.

Taped to the back is the original artist's statement and contact information for W.R. Ferris, Walter Rockford Ferris II, aka Rocky Ferris. The statement provides significant insight into the artist, it reads:

"Walter is one of those unusual person who has combined all phases of his life to make them work for him and he expresses them within his work. He is an artist and always has been.
It was his childhood goal. His appreciation for quality, design, and presentation was introduced in his youth in New England. His preoccupation with autos began in his teens and was rekindled with his first antique auction ten years later. At 30, Walter changed his occupation from commercial artists to fine artist and started drawing what he loved... autoscapes.
It is the individuality of the most commonplace, especially during the 30s, 40s, 50s, that has inspired him to recreate this mood. He has exhibited in numerous national shows, lives in Florida in winter, Michigan in summer, and drives a Plymouth Woody."

His work is in private, corporate, and public collections. He has received numerous commissions, and prestigious awards at art festivals.

His individual style has evolved over the years he describes as "many lives." Living on a boat and creating miniatures for years, then back on land with a studio, he describes his work as "Tropical Surrealism." He no longer paints simply photorealistic images, he makes "the normal seem abnormal and abnormal seem normal... surrealism." A member and an instructor at the Key West Art Center, Key West, Florida, as of 2006. Discovered through numerous sites and links, he may be quoted as stating that "photorealistic images of which are not real or present and come from my mind are what make me feel truly creative."

Measurements: 24" wide and 20" tall framed

I never received it. I was waiting till I got my credit card statement to deny the charge. I would like to know what happened.

Dana responded

Today we received a convo from the buyer. We were stunned. It was the first convo since the purchase and the buyer’s cancelation four minutes later. We did not question the request for cancellation, we understand what can sometimes be an impetuous purchase. We immediately refunded the buyer. We followed all the proper protocol. We were equally disappointed yesterday with the buyer’s negative review. We certainly don't feel it is deserved. We responded to the buyer’s convo by providing not only a verbal explanation but screen shots of her purchase and quick cancellation. We told her the piece was available. I asked her to reconsider her negative review. Unfortunately, nothing to date. We are thrilled when a piece finds new purpose, or place, with someone equally impassioned by its spirit. Peace.
