"Never Mind The Pigeon Seed - Electric Painting No. 23" - limited edition print 20x20cm, a limited signed/numbered edition of 25. a Giclée print on matt finish 300 gram Hahnemühle Fine Art Bamboo paper
A print of a recent painting, the tenth in a new series of Electric paintings painted ahead of May’s Electric edition of the Art Car Boot Fair. Album covers interpreted and concluded during the time it takes to listen to that album (very loudly) just once.
Album covers interpreted and concluded during the time it takes to listen to that album just once. The Pop Group’s “Y” is alive with electricity, their 1979 Avant garde, Experimental Post-Punk take on things. I am being very picky about the albums chosen here.
We have here a limited edition print of the 23rd in an ongoing series of Electric paintings, pieces painted during the time it takes to listen to a very electric album just once. I’m rather enjoying the challenge on this series so far, the series was started as a reaction to the "Electric" theme of the Art Car Boot Fair back in May 2022. As expected this series has now gone on beyond the fair..
So “Electric” was the theme of the fair this time and to me electric says kranked up guitars, the smell of over heating amps and loud loud rock music. Electric music isn’t polite, it isn’t quiet. Electric music is raw, visceral, music is emotional, something you can taste, that electricity in the air. The process involved throwing on a very electric album, turning it way up and while it plays (just once) painting the cover of that album on a fresh blank canvas, the paintings will take no longer than one play of the album, the painting had to be fast, alive, reactionary, instant, flawed, the paintings need to be as raw as the music.
