‘First Play’ is a 3-colour screen print, using a striking black gloss and printed on GF Smith’s Zen Pure White 270gsm paper. The print is signed and numbered by Poppy and is an Artist Proof originally from of a small edition of 30 which has sold out.
Much of her work seems to harbor a message of escapism. Her cutouts bare an image of floating through the cosmos, make something quite classic feel futuristic and otherworldly. Acknowledging these decades as a revolution for fashion and rock and roll, Poppy pines for the past.
‘First Play’ uses original 1960’s found images to create this psychedelic twist, absorbing and visulising the feeling of hearing a record from that era for the first time.
