DESCRIPTION

Colour-fast ink on recycled felt in 3 sizes
Limited edition of 50 prints, 2019. Ships in a box.

Bex was a strong Aussie painkiller containing asprin, phenacetin and caffeine that came in powder or pill form. In the 50s it was seen as “Mother’s Little Helper” and its advertising tagline, “A cup of tea, a Bex, and a good lie down,” gained social currency.
During the 60s it was discovered that Bex was highly addictive and responsible for widespread kidney disease, though it stayed on the market till 1977. In 2011 former PM Kevin Rudd told the media, “It’d be a good thing if everyone had a cup of tea and a Bex and a long lie down,” over reports of his possible challenge to his leader, the incumbent PM, Julia Gillard.

From HOW I FELT
A series of 200 felt prints I created during 2019 & 2020.
Each size is a limited edition of 50 pieces.
Every work is hand-printed in Sydney on recycled acoustic felt.
I sign, title, number, date, and frame every print myself.
Not only is felt warm and fuzzy, it improves a room’s acoustics.

FRAMING

All How I Felt prints come in the frame colour shown.*
Only 70 × 50 and 50 x 50 cm prints are available unframed or framed.
10 × 15, 21 × 30 and 23 x 23 cm frames include a stand and hanging hook.
L-pins or a hanging brace are the easiest way to hang unframed prints on plaster or wooden walls. A frame is better if your wall is brick or concrete.
None of my frames include glass because felt looks better naked. 
I can provide clear acrylic (not glass) and a sealed backing for $30 if the work will be hung in a moist environment like a beach house. Click here to add acrylic to your framed order.
*Unless otherwise specified.

SHIPPING

Sydney art lovers can avoid shipping costs by collecting work and paying cash at my studio in Darlinghurst. Otherwise shipping is calculated at check-out. Each print is hand-made so please allow 2-4 weeks for domestic delivery and 3-5 weeks for international. Let me know if you need a piece urgently as I may have one already printed.

CUSTOM WORK / COMMISSIONS

I’m happy to quote on custom felt prints featuring your choice of subject matter in any size. I also work with interior designers to create feature walls that visually and acoustically enhance living or work spaces.
