Destination St. John's: Wildly Unique Read
Peter Wilkin's Music to your Eyes collection is displayed on a wall

Peter Wilkins

Music to your eyes.

Represented by: CPG

In this collection, Peter Wilkins draws on Newfoundland musicians to celebrate both music and its imagery. The inspirations are eclectic, ranging from Ron Hynes to Great Big Sea. Through their colour schemes and visual elements, these artworks evoke the original album covers. They have taken on the likenesses of records through abstract representation and digital re-mixing. In addition to the general forms, they draw upon each unique album cover. They recall the original covers, while creating wholly new visuals at the same time. By extension, they bring memories of the music rushing back to those who have heard it.
