Ceremonial

Okay…back to catching up art from last summer’s solo show of recycled/upcycled art work! The next few posts are all about artwork that was created on 33 1/3 LP’s. One of my very first gallery showings, about ten years ago, was made up of the same thing so this isn’t new for me, just re-visited as it fit the theme.

The first step for all the pieces was to fasten wood pieces to the back so the hangers could be attached and so that they would stand out from the wall a bit when hung, giving them more dimension. It was also essential because some of them were made into clocks and there needed to be space for the mechanisms to fit. Blog, 2013-04-24 11.12.17

After that step was finished I began work on the individual pieces. Some had been spray painted and others were not. For today’s piece, Ceremonial, it had been painted  bright red. The time-consuming part of this creation was rolling all the magazine pages! From a distance many people have mistaken them for pencils. :)Blog, 2013-05-07 11.25.58

Once that had been done then I began playing with the layout of the piece. I had cut a piece of scrap foam core and covered it with aluminum to use as a vertical break in the piece so I arranged the magazine rolls to one side of it until I was pleased.Blog, 2013-05-27 12.28.34

Prior to attaching all the piece I colored the aluminum piece with inks to compliment the background color of the record.  Then it was time to glue the pieces down, add a few embellishments and, ta-da, finished!
