The Object of the Exercise
graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour/30x20cm
The found subject/object matter from which this latest in the sequence of 'roadkill' diptych drawings was processed had been compressed in such a manner that, rather than flattened-out, has resulted in a most compact & slightly more obviously still three-dimensional object-as-such, reduced to essence, as though frozen in retracted, self-defensive mode: an interesting reconfiguration to attempt to represent.
Julian Cope/Teardrop Explodes 'Floored Genius'
The Chasms 'vs. Dandelion Radio' EP
Elliott Smith 'Roman Candle' & 'Elliott Smith'
Geraldine Fibbers 'The Hut Recordings'
Including, in its latter examples, the first CDs burned from the MP3s converted from tape cassette form, proving to be of decent enough sound quality (that of the music has been enthused about already, in the instances of both Elliott Smith & The Geraldine Fibbers) to render the purchase of the digital transfer kit from Vinyl-2-PC to have been a worthwhile & recommended investment.
