Dye transfer on acoustic felt tile, 60 x 60cm x 7mm
Limited edition of 50 prints, 2019. Ships in a box.
Launched in 1937, Polaroid created and popularised instant photography, creating a monopoly in the field and inspiring generations of artists, including Warhol, Helmut Newton, Mapplethorpe and Keith Haring, who helped make the brand a cultural icon. But as time passed and the world switched to digital photography, Polaroid lagged behind and in 2001 they filed for bankruptcy. A major reason for their failure was that Polaroid’s executives continued to believe in the importance of the paper print. They couldn’t see that the photo album was bound to be replaced by the digital slide show.
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.
