By happy coincidence - serendipity! - (I will get tired of this, but not before you) the exhibition is on for 23 days and since there are 23 paintings, for the sheer hell of it I will be posting about a painting every day throughout . . .
Nancy Sinatra - Phaedra 4567 Reprise. Acrylic and mixed media on canvas 70 x 100cm.
Also available as a 42 x60 cm (A2) limited edition print.
The construct of the painting is based on the Reprise records vinyl label, yellow in the bottom half then green & lilac a quarter each on the top half, then broken into flat blocks of similar colour. Bit of proto synthetic cubism going on there. The lettering/ideas for the composition comes from Some Velvet Morning, Phaedra was her name of course, the 45 recorded in '67 on Reprise. Not The 5678's although iIt's Japanese for Nancy spray-painted on the right and of course she had flowers in her hair it's 67 after all and who's in her head, none other than the mournful mustachioed Lee Hazlewood. They called him Sand.
