Joshua Budich – “Daisy”
In addition to being one of the most talented and respected filmmakers of all time, Stanley Kubrick gave our beloved genre of science fiction several instant classics. 2001: A Space Odyssey is a hypnotic epic stretching from the dawn of man to our near extinction. A Clockwork Orange adapted Anthony Burgess’ novel in cold, methodical fashion, serving up a bit of the old ultraviolence that inspired countless pop-culture references and hipster Halloween costumes. Those two films are just a few of the many being paid tribute by an exhibition that recently wrapped up its engagement at the Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco. Thankfully you can still see what the show’s artists had to offer, and you don’t even need a plane ticket or a time machine.

Justin Van Genderen – “Fullest Possible Use”

Spoke Art’s Kubrick exhibit enlisted the talents of over 60 artists, each of whom picked one of the director’s films and created their own unique tribute. There were no guidelines on subject matter or content, and “each artist was given free reign to re-interpret and render their take on Kubrick’s entire cinematic collection.” You can see some of our favorites below, and head over to Spoke’s website for the rest. Some of them are even for sale, but you might need deep pockets…
