Sugar Pop Dream Factory
Oil on Canvas, 2018
60x60 cm (23.6x23.6 inch)
Painted ‘Alla Prima’, mixing the colours directly on the canvas, Sugar Pop Dream Factory is a sublime work that reveals an enchanting visual response to the album 'Strawberry Jam' by Animal Collective.
The joyful use of contrasts of warm and cold colours is the exact representation of the band's idiosyncratic melodies, which in turn it perfectly accords with the powerful strokes covering the canvas.
By looking at Sugar Pop Dream Factory, you can truly hear the wild intervallic leaps - jumping up and down full octaves or going from a full-throated howl to a piercing shriek - of the singers, and ultimately enter into the Animal Collective's utopian dreamworld.
