20/1: Latest Vinyl records with colour flecks
My parents had a childrens record in their 45 collection called ‘Happy hour’ and I remember some stories and songs being on it. I used to play or just look at sometimes because it had lots of coloured flecks that looked like they were bits of paint inside the vinyl.
I thought I’d reproduce this idea of ‘painted’ vinyl on a 12″ scale . I realize that they look like Damien Hirst’s Circle paintings with less drips, although he drops paint onto a canvas that spins via a motor. I’m just using a variety of different brushes and occasionally turning the paper. I’m not sure about these, they’re not finished, just an exploration. What do you think? (Contact form at bottom)
