“The artwork on album 4 was something that I’d been working on with a sculptor called Malcolm Poynter, who’s work I thought was really strong. There was a book I’d seen on distortions, a little like fairground mirrors, and we started using Flexi Mirrors.” – Peter Gabriel.
The final sleeve art is from an experimental video directed by Malcolm Poynter, with professional help from his editor friend David Gardner. The cover features the distorted image of Peter.
“My memory of this project, which was crucially pre Photoshop, was us dragging around Flexi Mirrors and Fresnel Lenses, and some sculptures, and then having a very creative (if chaotic) time. It was good!” Malcolm Poynter.
Malcolm Poynter attended Goldsmiths College and the Royal College of Art 1970-73. His diverse career as one of Britain’s top artists creating fantastic sculptures and theatre performances spans several decades. Malcolm’s work has been has exhibited in USA, Japan, Australia and Europe.
