Did you know that in 1991, Rolling Stone magazine said that Aoxomoxoa was the 8th best album cover, ever? I did not know that. But I can see why.
When it comes to finding projects on wood to do, I want to find something that challenges my abilities and creativity. With wood, it isn’t just about acrylic paint on a wood surface. How can I bring the cover out in a multi-dimensional way? And can I bring other elements into the work? Aoxomoxoa was a great challenge and strengthened my passion for the art I create. I got so much out of making this and happy with how it turned out.
My Dremel really worked overtime on this project. The video below helps show how I attempted to bring every element of the album cover to life. I also brought in a different way to bring the incense to life. Wool dipped in lacquer to harden in the shape I molded. Pretty wild how it came out!
For me, this is some of my best work and I’m glad to share its completion.
It is hard to show the level of detail in a photo so this video aims to show you just how detailed this piece is.
