Mock ‘n’ Roll
27 April - 7 May 2013
Illustrator Jack Hudson has once again teamed up with 3D image-making duo Lord Whitney, this time to produce a body of work inspired by the most vibrant, iconic, and downright weird record covers in history.
Jack and Lord Whitney have created an entire back catalogue of LP cover designs for a series of fictitious musical artists. This exhibition will launch you into a sonic time warp where only the best bits from an era rich in music and visuals are permitted. Doves will cry. Hair will spontaneously perm.
This feast for the senses will be equally delicious to eyes and ears, with established musical artists penning original songs inspired by these outré artworks.
Expect the private view to bring a touch of Club Tropicana to Leeds, complete with colour, music, and exotic fruit-based beverages. Just remember to remove your rose tinted aviators, and you may be able to spot some of the ‘real’ superstars themselves…

Lord Whitney are Amy Lord and Rebekah Whitney, whose collaboration began after studying together in Leeds. Their practise in 3D image making often includes building props and installations for anything from photoshoots to music videos and all things weird and wonderful inbetween!
Jack Hudson is an illustrator/designer currently based in East London. Inspired by all types of mid-century illustration, fashion and photography he hopes to push his work into new directions.
