Monument Valley Flying Eyeball: A Tribute to John Cipollina

c. 1990
Ink airbrush on paper.
34 x 56.2 cm. (13 3/8 x 22 1/8 in).
The imagery in this painting is typical of Rick Griffin’s artwork from 1988 to 1991, the flying eyeball being one of Griffin’s continuous motifs from his work in the 1960s and the Monument Valley images informed by a trip he had made to Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. Griffin had recently designed a tribute poster for the wake of his good friend, John Cipollina, guitarist with Quicksilver Messenger Service, who died in May 1989.
