phonograph record players, record albums, found objects
Artist and musician David Pohl's environment turns old record players (picked up in secondhand stores) into a series of expressive altars, whose insistent sounds evoke the repetitive mantras of eastern spirituality. Other elements, often obsessively worked, sustain the concept of both universal and private religious experience. David Pohl is an award-winning illustrator and multimedia artist based in Pittsburgh. He works with layers of graphic elements to explore themes of acceptance and social justice.
