Fringe Screen Print #4 - The Transformation by Ghoulish Gary Pullin

Fringe Benefits Limited Edition Fringe Screen Print Series - “The Transformation” by Ghoulish Gary Pullin

The Transformation” by Ghoulish Gary Pullin is the fourth print in the Fringe Benefit Screen Print Series released in honor of the hit FOX television show Fringe’s fifth and final season. Each print will be based on an episode’s case (aka fringe event) selected by fan voting at the Fringe Benefit website. Pullin’s design is based on Episode 113, entitled “The Transformation.” In that episode scientist Marshall Bowman gets a nosebleed on an airplane flight, and he tries to warn the crew to give him sedatives or use force against him. He transforms into a beast in the bathroom, and bursts out, causing the plane to crash. This is one of The Blot’s favorite Fringe episodes, but this print does nothing for me. It looks like a page out of a comic book without any frame of reference. It's also not a piece of art I’d hang on my wall. All in all, this TV show print series has been a pretty big disappointment so far.

Ghoulish Gary Pullin’s limited edition Fringe 4 color screen print “The Transformation” measures 18”x24”, has a run size of 150 pieces (only 100 available for purchase) and comes hand numbered. The print retails for $30 each and can be purchased here.

To celebrate and honor the fifth and final season of Fringe, six of Gallery 1988’s most sought after artists and designers have been commissioned to create screenprints depicting some of the series' most memorable cases. All profits from the Fringe Benefits project will be donated to The Mission Continues, an amazing charity that encourages and aids volunteerism by disabled and wounded veterans. These screenprints are hand-pulled, each its own individual work of art, in an edition of just 150, with only 100 available to the public through this project. Once the edition is sold out, they will never be printed again.
