Burnplate

years ago
i considered myself a artist
one of those analog artists
that used paint
knives
canvas
wood
(years prior to discovering the digital arts)

after a few unsuccessful gallery showings
i turned to my second love which was music

the primarly reason i chose this as the title track:
burnplate no.1 the painting and furthermore the record officially marks the end of my short lived “professional” painting career

burnplate no.1 ( the painting. which graces the cover of the record and a wall of my studio) consists of a solid sheet of plexiglass,
covered in engine primer,
and sliver spray paint
which was then sprinkled lightly with gasoline
and lit on fire while still wet
allowed to melt for a few minutes
extinguished
then sewn back together where it needed it
with some random wire
i had laying around
