IKONESCAPE SERIES: KYLO & REY by Rory Kurtz On Sale Info!

We’ve been teasing a new project, with a new artist, for a few weeks, but now it’s time to grab your gear and head to a galaxy far, far away as we celebrate May the Fourth with Rory Kurtz’s brand new print series, IKONESCAPE.

Rory Kurtz has only been in the pop culture art world for a little while, but he’s already a force to be reckoned with. His consistently clean aesthetic mixed with his uncanny ability to capture a subject’s likeness with accuracy and style make Rory’s work imaginative and impressive.

We asked Rory to say a few words about the new IKONESCAPE series, including the first two prints that we’re releasing, Rey and Kylo Ren from Star Wars: The Force Awakens:

"There are a handful of films that give us more than a singular isolated story. These are films that create an entire universe around their characters, universes that exist beyond the finite narrative of the film. Ridley’s Blade Runner, Lynch’s Dune, the Harry Potter series, and so many more that have their own histories, cultures, languages, and visual aesthetics. I wanted to explore these characters in their natural worlds without the constraints of color counts and title placement. It’s an admittedly large sandbox to play in, and I couldn’t think of a better place to start than the Star Wars universe, with Kylo and Rey squaring off in that quiet moment before all hell breaks loose in a snowy landscape. In the future I hope to explore characters in film worlds we’re familiar with, and others far less traveled."

Rory’s first IKONESCAPE prints will be available on (5/4) @ 12PM ET on our homepage, Bottleneckgallery.com!
