living in the 70s
Dye transfer on acoustic felt tile, 60 x 60cm x 7mm
Limited edition of 50 prints, 2019. Ships in a box.
Skyhooks’s 1975 debut album Living in the 70s was produced by Mondo Rock singer Ross Wilson. Despite its sales of 240,000 making it the highest-selling album by an Australian act at that time, six tracks from the record were banned on commercial radio, in defiance of which, the ABC’s new Sydney youth station, 2JJ, played the track You Just Like Me ‘Cos I’m Good in Bed as their first ever song when they began to broadcast in January 1975.
HOW I FELT is a series of 200 prints, each in a limited edition of 50.
All are hand-printed in Sydney using dye transfer on acoustic felt tiles.
I sign and number each print.
I love these felt tiles because they look and feel beautiful. As a bonus, they’re designed to absorb sound and improve a room’s acoustics.
L-pins ($10 for 4) or a hanging brace ($30) are a great way to hang my unframed prints on plaster or wooden walls. I recommend a wooden frame for brick or concrete walls. My frames are custom-built in Sydney using solid timber with natural grain. Each frame is $149. Please note that I do NOT include glass because the felt looks better naked. I can provide acrylic (not glass) and a sealed backing for $50 if the work will be hung in a moist environment like a beach house. Click here to add acrylic to your framed order.
I enjoy special requests, be it for a certain product or theme, or work at a specific size. I also work with interior designers to create feature walls that visually and acoustically enhance a room.
