SCALIN, Noah [born 1972]

Untitled [#83]

undated [2007-2008]

acrylic on wood panel / 4 inches x 4 inches

On June 4th, 2007 artist Noah Scalin began the “Skull-a-Day” project, producing the 366th two- or three-dimensional piece in the series on June 3rd, 2008—it was a Leap Year. The project developed an international cult following and yielded a book illustrating the first one hundred fifty pieces. This unsigned image (acrylic on unprimed wood panel) is identified only as “#83” on its reverse.

Scalin’s painting became part of a fund-raising effort in Seattle, Washington, to raise money for a cancer survivor whose insurance had rejected ongoing payment for his treatment. It was acquired from an on-line auction and donated anonymously to the Community Collection simply “In honor of Jonathan.” We do not know Jonathan but hope for his recovery and long life.
