Low-Fidelity (Lo-Fi) is a term commonly used to describe a type of music that contains technical flaws, often due to poor quality or low budget recording equipment. Stephen Giblett’s recent paintings draw a parallel between Lo-Fi music and low-resolution imagery taken from iPhone screen-shots and the Internet. The technical flaws from the original files provide avenues for creativity – a shift from idealistic photorealism to freedom at the foot of abstraction.
