Blog / Dave Muller: top of our list

The top ten list is something of a cliche. Billboard charts, FBI most wanted–you name it and there’s probably a top 10 list for it. For years, David Letterman has offered up his own goofy Top 10 List on the Late Show. A Google search even turns up a list of  Top Ten Urinals.
But artist Dave Muller turns an ordinary top 10 list into gorgeous, monumental works on paper. His brush captures every detail of a careworn record album cover. One recent work depicts President Barack Obama’s own top 10 albums, lined up like rare books on a shelf. Dave’s work, including a brand new depiction of his own family’s top 10 list of records,  is part of the upcoming exhibition “The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl,” opening Sept. 2, 2010,  at the Nasher Museum. (Preview week starts August 26.)
Learn more about Dave’s work in this  interview in Beautiful Decay.
