Original artwork description:

Inspiration
During the 90’s when I was a young and regular weekend raver, I used love the bright art backdrops that used to adorn the walls at underground raves and nightclubs. They were painted with a ‘glow in the dark’ paint so they would glow under the UV lights. I wanted to create a piece of art that would bring back those memories, but something that would look great in the day too.

Process
I picked up this huge second hand piece of MDF from a skip. It originally was covered with a piece of fabric with Marilyn Monroe’s face on it. Even though I like Marilyn, the fabric had to come off so I could get on with creating my ‘Rave Backdrop’ inspired art. It was made with a mixture of using glow in the dark paints, papers, mirrors and other knick-knacks found in my studio and around the home. I also drilled holes and thread through some copper LED lights that can be switched from the back.

Materials used:

A mixed-media assemblage made with a mixture of using glow in the dark paints, papers, mirrors, copper LED lights and other knick-knacks found in my studio and around the home.
