A Distinctive Sound

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.

New Artwork Box frame- Sit and Stir

DSC_0494

Sit and Stir, paper, ceramic, paint, ink, collage in box frame, 11.5 x 11.5cm

Another box frame completed with a shard of my broken mug.

I have two pieces left of the mug but they’re much larger than this, may have to get a couple of larger frames as i really do love making these.

I’m also thinking about selling them, will have to be in the UK however as I’d be worried about them surviving shipping overseas.

New Artwork: Puzzle with a Piece Missing.

Puzzle with a piece missing, ink, cut text, ink pen, acetate print, 17.3 x 23cm

The next piece done for my ongoing Gotye project.

With this piece I wanted to capture the overall sombre feeling of the song. I decided to use muted blue and purple ink accented with simple black and white. I also wanted the figure to look and solemn reflective with the jigsaw texture (and the absent pieces) as an obvious link to the song title.

The subtle graphics in the background ink is a collage made in Photoshop from vintage diagrams and text, printed onto acetate and then onto the ink base. The text in the piece is a couple of lines from the song.

I used this stock image by AmethystDreams1987 as drawing reference.
