Pete Davies: Record Sleeve Collages

(c) Pete Davies

Part of an ongoing series of altered / re-appropriated 12″ and 7″ record sleeves using traditional cut and paste collage techniques.

I only use sleeves from the 1950s and 1960s, so there is a kind of subtle subversion of what would have been the mainstream at the time. All of my visual work (photography, print making, collage) is heavily influenced by music, I’m always looking for some form of rhythmic consistency in the finished pieces. I also play the drums so that mathematical sense is important to the overall feel of my work.” (Pete Davies)
