Bricks Are Heavy - Electric Painting No.14 (2022) - Acrylic, gloss varnish on canvas, 20cm x 20cm x 1cm
“Bricks Are Heavy” - The 14th in a new series of Electric paintings painted around May’s Electric edition of the Art Car Boot Fair. Album covers interpreted and a painting finished during the time it takes to listen to that album (very loudly) just once.
L7's 1992 album Bricks Are Heavy was and is a very electric album. L7 were really alive there back at the start of 90's and alt.rock and grunge and no messing about. it was also a release that I played a very small part in back in the days of doing things with Atom Seed and London Records during the Organ days
I am being very picky about the albums chosen here, this is 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 fair. Hopefully, all being well there will be a few more on the other side of the Art Car Boot Fair, I expect this series will go on beyond the fair..
“Electric” is 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. Album covers interpreted and concluded during the time it takes to listen to that album just once.
There's a small "s" signature on the front and full title and signature on the back
