Put the needle on the record is the name of a current group show at the Twilight Gallery in seattle, curated by the fabulous ellen Schinderman of www.schindermania.com
In her own words :
Put the Needle on the Record explores the constant connection between visual art and music. Cover art has been a part of the music experience since the first pieces of sheet music were published. Photos and portraits of musicians catch out imagination and allow us to feel what it might have been like to be there, at that show……
My contribution to the show was a whole new chanllenge in scale and size fr my retex sculpture. The portrait is based on the Bjork cover of her Homogenic album, designed by Alexander Mc Queen.
This was all new as the piece is much smaller than the pieces i had produced so far as well as the fact that i usually work with several pictures to reference the 3D quality of my work, tho in this case there was only the cover to work from.
Needles to say i am rather thrilled with the result and am more than pleased that she arrived safe and sound at the Gallery.
I also hand embroidered the #bigswingingovaries version of the iconic Technics Dj slip mats to go with the theme.
All in all the show looks fabulous and i regretfully couldn't attend the opening! That however doesn't mean that you can't ;)
It will still be running until the 15th of september , with events happening along the way https://www.facebook.com/events/1441605729499546/
