Andy Hopkins' "Blooming Under Lampshades"

by Andy Hopkins

  • Compact Disc (CD)

    Andy Hopkins' multidisciplinary and reference heavy works inhabit a fantastically surreal world filled with humor. Based in Glasgow, Scotland he produces drawings, objects, sound and video incredibly prolifically and frequently using his iPod to make work, his entire [RHP] CDRs release was recorded through this everyday device, which updates this type of all-encompassing practice which is rooted in dada and surrealism and has been popularized recently by artists and projects such as Ergo Phizmiz's 'Excessive Entertainment' and David Shrigley.

    Physically, the album fits the [RHP] CDRs template of an artist designed cover, some artist supplied but house designed content in the form of a small insert, in the case of Andy’s release this takes the form of an 8 page zine containing lyrics from his album as well as the disc containing the work. For this [RHP] CDRs edition we have moved slightly away from the regular format and have adopted an A5 format to benefit the zine and cover art.
