Yet More of the Familiar 'Bull'...
graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour/30x20cm
A new year &, indeed, decade, but...the subject-object matter of this most recent drawing in the ongoing series of 'roadkill' diptychs is the reverse plane of the example of found 'Readymade Cubism' as featured in the previous drawing, its branded identity again surviving & familiar, even in synechdochal form.
Hearing out the old year in fine style with the varied & complex wonders of Jesca Hoop's 'Kismet' & then in with the new with a couple of oldies-but-goodies of which it was pleasant to be reminded: in the light of more recent musical 'developments' & the attention afforded to such (&, indeed, their original sources), the intriguing retro-electro pop stylings of Ladytron's debut album, referencing all the right noises, were, curiously, years ahead of their time, back in the early 2000s.
