Dazzle Disc references Blake’s early work as well as his recent exploration of the ‘dazzle’ effect, which was originally a method of helping vessels avoid enemy detection in World War One.
In 2015 Blake was commissioned to ‘dazzle’ a Mersey Ferry, the result was ‘Everybody Razzle Dazzle’ and the print it inspired ‘Dazzle’. The choice of a circular format for this new work has multiple resonances; the most obvious being that of a vinyl record, but also a badge, a film reel, a rose window.
His choice of the word ‘disc’ is certainly suggestive of the influence music and musicians have had throughout his career. The composition was originally created as a stained glass window for installation at Worton Hall Studios.
