“You Are Strong” Screen Print by Tara McPherson x Collectionzz x Pearl Jam

“You Are Strong” Screen Print by Tara McPherson x Collectionzz x Pearl Jam

Collectionzz has launched a really cool new screen print series entitled Art Unleashed: Rock Art for a Cause. It’s a collaboration with some amazing artists from around the world, who are very well-recognized within the world of rock and gig posters, with two goals in mind: to raise money for charity, and to bring to members of Collectionzz some of the most phenomenal rock art they’ve ever seen! But what’s really amazing about this project is that Collectionzz will be donating all profits from the sales of the art to the charities of the artists’ choices. How cool is that!?! The Blot will definitely be trying to snag a few prints from this exciting new series.

To create original and interpretive art, Collectionzz has asked each artist to use a song as inspiration, and harness their guttural reactions to the music itself, without limitation. For their second release, Collectionzz has asked the super talented Tara McPherson to design an art print for the classic Pearl Jam song “Why Go.” As Tara explained, “I was assigned the song ‘Why Go’ by Pearl Jam for my art print in this series with Collectionzz. After reading the lyrics I was taken with the character's strength in fighting the system and the status quo. I feel she is an icon of strength, and I wanted to illustrate her independent spirit. I see parallels with scratching letters into walls with tattooing words across your chest. There is this alternate universe hinted at through the heart shaped hole in her chest, creating a sort of portal to an alternate dimension, maybe where one’s mind would go when trapped in an isolated place. I also chose Planned Parenthood as my charity because they fight the good fight for women's health and reproductive rights. The title is a reminder, a mantra, for women everywhere going through any rough spot that life throws at you... You are strong.”
