Below the Lights Oil on Canvas 24"x30"

“(Our album, “Below the Lights” ) is more or less a tribute to the idea of these darker places – these sub-worlds – that come along with all existences, so to speak. Our consciousness being coupled with a sub-consciousness. In mythology, you have the gods and beneath the gods, you’ll have trolls or dark creatures that lurk. It’s kind of an acknowledgement that in a lot of cases these dark places are where life or ideas spring from. To make it the most basic metaphor: where human life comes from – the womb – is not a light or nice place. It’s pretty grotesque and dark. It’s the same with the soil. Stuff dies and decomposes, and up comes something nice. It’s not a negative and positive in the tradition of light/dark. It’s more some thoughts on seeing that they’re both there.”
