Archival inkjet print is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity that is signed and numbered by the artist. “Marching Band Does It Again” is the first print ever made of a Leo Gabin painting. The original 80 x 60" piece was part of his second solo show titled Tallahassee at Peres Projects in Berlin. The exhibition was centered on Leo Gabin's first feature film A CrackUp At the Race Riots—based on the eponymous novel by Harmony Korine. While the book never localizes itself with a specific place, Korine has mentioned that the nebulous story took place in and around Florida. "Marching Band Does It Again" encapsulates the essence of the Sunshine State: while initially bright and warm, the graffiti-like strokes overlay classic black-and-white photography, conveying the paradox of suburban angst, a notion often replayed within the work of Leo Gabin.
