New Artwork- Night Drive

Night Drive Artwork

Night Drive, acrylic ink on canvas textured paper, 117.8 x 1012.6cm

The next piece in my Gotye Project.

There’s been a long gap between the last piece and this one just because I’ve been busy with many other things.

This one came together pretty easily as I had the image in my head for a while- the ink itself has a pretty organic form in that I let it do it’s own thing on the paper. I like that the ink picked up the texture of the paper beneath it, I didn’t have to add any extra texture to the piece

This is one of my favourite songs on the Like Drawing Blood album- you can listen to the song here on Youtube.

New Artwork: The Only Thing I Know

The Only Thing I Know artwork

The Only Thing I Know, acrylic ink on paper, 15x10cm

The next piece in my Gotye Project.

For this piece I wanted to reflect the loneliness referenced in the lyrics of the song. The lonely corner of a room synonymous with a lonely corner of the mind.

The song The Only Think I Know is on the international release of the album Like Drawing Blood, it is a newer version of the song originally on the Boardfacealbum in 2003. On the Australian release this is replaced by A Distinctive Sound– the artwork for that is here.

A Distinctive Sound, mixed media collage on postcard, 15x10cm

The next piece in my Gotye Project.

The song A Distinctive Sound is on the Australian release of the album Like Drawing Blood. On the International release (the copy I have, being in the UK and all) this is replaced by a new version of the song The Only Thing I Know, originally on the Boardface album. I will be making pieces for both songs in this project.

This track is very much an audial collage of sounds, music and vocals. I wanted to reflect the layers and texture with this piece. The cut text emphasises various ‘lyrics’ throughout the song.
