New and recent record paintings by Martin Grover
at Graham Hunter Gallery

About

For nearly twenty years now, Martin has been painting his life-size and larger than life record portraits.

Painted in a tromp l’oeil style (trick of the eye), they are unashamedly nostalgic. Celebrating a golden age of record buying, while also lamenting its demise - these paintings resonate with a halcyon glow.

Grover revels in the faded patina and ephemeral nature of these dog eared, torn, slightly translucent paper sleeves, whilst also paying homage to the iconic designs, graphics, labels and songs of the era.
