Further information
Music serves as both inspiration and content in Tim Bavington's work. Using synthetic polymer, he transposes music into imagery by assigning each musical note a particular paint color. The width of each vertical band corresponds to the note's length within the musical sequence. Upon close inspection, the soft, blurred edges created by Bavington's airbrush spray gun are revealed. She is Love is based on the solo segment in the song of the same name by Oasis, one of the most beloved British rock bands of the 1990s.
