The Music goes On and On
The Music goes On and On 1964
One of the first 'clandestine' paintings undertaken by AMA when he first started art lessons at Uppingham School in the autumn of 1964. As with 'Strokes of Primary Colour', this was produced when AMA believed the art master was not around.
Needless to say, this work was entirely intuitive in mixing applied objects with rolled on powder colour paint. What AMA also didn't know at the time that the application of a ruler into a picture preceded the renowned American 'Pop' artist, Jasper Johns doing the same thing in certain works.
Innocence and ignorance can be a wonderful thing when attempting to be creative.
Powder colour on sugar paper with 7" vinyl discs and metal ruler tape attached
