I've given it some thought, and I'm pretty certain that the piece I'll be working on for Art Hotel's Love Song Show will be a visual tribute to Iron and Wine's "Flightless Bird, American Mouth." Each artist has been presented with the challenge of creating a representation of a cherished love song.
After playing Beatles album after Beatles album, some 80s love songs, and even some Reel Big Fish, I took a trip down to the garage with a beer, turned on my iPod and this song just felt right. The lyrics are weird as hell, but it just feels right, damnit!
Much respect to my homie, Shayne for inviting me out be a part of this exhibit. Art Hotel is a new exhibition space here in the, dare I say burgeoning Dallas art scene, and I am proud to be affiliated with such wonderful folks. Check it out at www.myspace.com/art_hotel.
