Dye transfer on acoustic felt tile, 60 x 60cm x 7mm
Limited edition of 50 prints, 2019. Ships in a box.
Quincy Magoo is a diminutive, wealthy retiree whose inadvertent shenanigans result from his extreme near-sightedness, compounded by his stubborn refusal to admit that he can barely see. Through uncanny streaks of luck and eternal optimism, Magoo inevitably walks away unscathed and blithe to any danger that may have come his way. I’ve loved Mr Magoo my entire life, especially his endearing voice, provided by Jim Backus, aka Thurston Howell III on Gilligan’s Island, and James Dean’s dad in Rebel Without a Cause.
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.
