Original 3D Supersize painted singles
(27×27 inch single in 32×32 inch frame)
Each original painting of a seven inch single measures 27 x 27 inches / 68 x 68 cm—approximately fifteen times the surface area of the original singles on which they are based. You can see one alongside—a beautiful Japanese pressing of “Gimme Shelter” by The Rolling Stones, with the supersize original painting that Morgan has created from it.
The source for each of Morgan’s original 3D paintings is an actual pre-owned seven inch single. A canvas bag measuring 27 x 27 inches (approx 68cm x 68cm) is hand-painted and distressed to replicate the creases and kinks in the original bag. Morgan then fixes a large black grooved vinyl disk with a 27 inch (68cm) diameter inside the bag, and the centre label detail is all hand-painted by Morgan.
The completed supersize single is then housed in a white box frame, ready for hanging (dimensions 32 x 32 inches / 81 x 81 cm). This has been designed so the the single, fixed in its bag, floats inside the frame, highlighting the 3D effect. Each original painting is signed by Morgan on the front, and supplied with a certificate of authenticity attached to the reverse of the frame.
If you have a particular single that has a special resonance for you, and which Morgan has not already produced, then you can commission an original 3D painting of it. Get in touch if this appeals and we will explain the process for commissioning an original. Please note that Morgan will only paint an original single once, and subsequent commission requests for a piece that already exists will be turned down.
If your budget doesn’t stretch to an original, Morgan offers limited edition versions.
