“Record Collector”; Oil and Acrylic painting on Canvas by Bob Claytor

61cm x 61cm; Oil and Acrylic on Canvas

“Somebody was trying to tell me that CDs are better than vinyl because they don’t have any surface noise. I said, “Listen, mate, life has surface noise.”        -John Peel

This painting shows an old established record shop in Sheffield, England. I have tried to represent something of the old shop’s character, speculating about the music memories that it has seen. I hope that the paint surface illustrates some of the music and underlaying archeology of this wonderful old building.
