Cover Versions – Laura Trinder & Chris Wildgoose
Laura Trinder and Chris Wildgoose have contributed art to the upcoming Cover Versions exhibition organised by Robin Harman, which is going to be on display at Orbital Comics, London, this May 1st to 14th, 2015.
Laura’s cover art is based on Florence & The Machine: Ceremonials, while Chris’ piece is based on the Deftones: Around the Fur. Other artists include, Andy Poyiadgi, Emily White, Robert M. Ball, Marc Laming, Andrew Whyte, Declan Shalvey, Clayton Cowles, Isaac Lenkiewicz, Kate Brown, and Dean Beattie, and you can read the full discography here.
About the exhibition, Robin Harman said, “I approached a couple of artist friends about their thoughts on the idea of creating new pieces based on their favourite albums in an effort to raise some money for Brain Tumour Research.”
“Without hesitation, they said they loved the idea and volunteered their services. This generosity blew me away, and I am eternally grateful for their support from the start, and the time, energy, work & commitment given by all the contributors so far.”
“From the 1st – 14th of May, Orbital Comics have been gracious enough to allow me use of their gallery space to display these pieces. The finished pieces will be displayed at 12″ record sleeve size, and will be available to pre-order from this site the same day. I’m not much for hype, but I can genuinely say that the art showcased is some of the contributors best work: I’m humbled by the effort they have put in: everyone has gone above & beyond. This is going to be a special show, and hopefully, if successful, one I hope to repeat in the future.”
“I want this project to be a celebration. Of comics, of music, of life. Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting some interviews, playlists & articles every Monday, Wednesday & Friday, by myself & some friends about the music/comics crossover.”
“I hope you enjoy.”
