Broadcast by ABC-TV from 1974 until 1987, Countdown was a weekly music program that could be called Australia’s Ed Sullivan Show. Classic Countdown moments include Ian “Molly” Meldrum referring to the Queen as “your mum” to the horror of interviewee Prince Philip; British singer Billy Idol explaining to Molly that he’d “had some great sex” since arriving in Australia for the Countdown Awards; and an inebriated Iggy Pop constantly mocking Molly during regular segment Humdrum.
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.
