Joel Birch "Under The Influence" at China Heights Gallery

China Heights is proud to present 'Under The Influence', a collection of new works by Joel Birch, centred around the overwhelming influence music has played in his life.

Fostering traditions of sign writing, Birch moves away from his habitual application of illustration and towards a paint brush to shape a set of type-based works.

Birch recounts lyrics from various bands and artists, using ink on 100% cotton rag. While each rhapsody is representative of Birch's personal unfolding, the style apparent in the lettering manifests with the viewer even before the content is understood.

Interposed are some of Birch's own lyrics. Because his primary occupation is as a touring musician, they are righteous within his core theme.
