James Connolly’s record remixes

I’m a British, New York based artist, approaching painting with a more cut and paste collage aesthetic. I paint images over found images. My current project of transforming old record covers was inspired by endless record rummaging trips in junks shops where I’d see the same old records, left gathering dust. I find our consumerist relationship to objects interesting. How we can crave an object, but effortlessly discard it when it ceases to fit in with who we are. I wanted to give these unwanted records a new lease of life by using them as a canvas for my work. ~James Connolly
