I didn't know what the album art should look like, except I knew I wanted a painter. After endless weeks of googling every possible word in the English language next to "oil on canvas" this was the image that caught my soul's eye. From there I found more of his work that spoke to the soul and the overiding theme of this album. When I asked Mr. Helnwein if he would allow us to use various works of his, he graciously said yes without any beauracracy or hesitation, and he very much dug our music. We are honored to have his touchingly haunting images be the visual mediator of our sound. That an artist of his caliber and stature could be so generous with his work is truly a blessing for us, and a testament to his humble character.
Do yourself a favor. Take a few moments and enjoy some real art. And yes, in the mixed media section, those ARE indeed paintings!!! Not photos. I know, unbelievable.
