on the b-side, I put down a chord progression I came up with a while
ago. How I discovered this, I'll never know. By all means, look
it up and play around; if you manage to make any songs from it,
be sure to let me know.
Restless Soul is as much a Rorshach test as anything I've
ever done. Maybe I should leave the interpretations to all the psychologists
in the audience. It's a good, violent mess; not unlike life itself.
message I wrote on the back is one of the times I wrote messages
on the back. The idea for a b-side to a painting, like the b-side
to a record single, evolved from here. Some time later, I added
the marker artwork and the gold tags (with those guitar chords)
and the stuff on the stretcher bars. Originally, I envisioned artwork
that consisted of nothing but words. People would go to galleries
and read the words on the canvases instead of looking at pictures.
It's the ultimate abstract art. If that sounds unusual, simply look
at any web site. Look at the way the pages are arranged.
