Back in the late 80s and into 90s I used to make mixed cassettes for myself and friends. I would spend hours carefully choosing out the songs by planning where they would fall in the playlist. After the mix was recorded I would spend just as much time creating the cover artwork and coming up with a fake title for it. Enter this century and things got a lot easier with ability to move tracks around digitally. These digital paintings, inspired by music and lyrics, are a reversion to those hands on days but developed with new tools. Using a combination of traditional tools such as paint, pencil, ink, as well as photos I’ve taken and found, I mix these together to create a cover for a “fake” mix tape. For this exhibit I created playlists for all the pieces that can be scanned and come with all the prints.
