Self Portrait as the Barefoot Mailman. Christy Gast


2013
Gelatin Silver Print
20"x 24"
Limited edition of 50
Exclusive to the Unscripted, Bal Harbour Art Program

"Self Portrait as the Barefoot Mailman" is a limited edition black and white silver gelatin print inspired by Christy Gast's public art sculptural installation of the same name that was commissioned by Unscripted, Bal Harbour this year. To create this editions image, Gast assumed the character of the legendary barefoot mailman that is said to have walked the shores from Miami to Palm Beach to deliver mail. Dressing as his character, Gast re-performed his walk along the shores of South Florida that would have traversed, recapturing the image that a resident then may have seen. Gast's image simultaneously evokes the nostalgia of this mythological mailman figure, and defies this character by refashioning his persona in her own contemporary and feminine likeness.

Exclusive to this six-month long project, and individually signed and numbered by the artist, the proceeds of these silver gelatin hand printed editions will help to fund Unscripted artist commissions.
