Crash Site Artworks

These are all the art pieces I created for the album Crash Site by CJ Kane. Each image in this post has a caption showing the title of the song the artwork is for. 

I have created more detailed blog posts for the majority of the pieces, you can see these posts here.

The album is free to download from cj-kane.com and can also be listened to on Soundcloud.

Please check it out and support independent musicians/ artists.

New Artwork: La Da Da


la da da final


La Da Da, acrylic ink, pigment ink pen, acrylic paint on canvas board,  25 x 25 cm

Piece for the second song on the album Crash Site. The pieces in this series were commissioned for a music album by C.J Kane.

The second image shows the image with text as it will be shown.

The main visual ideas suggested for this piece were ‘Pine trees (forest) under night sky – white/grey/black/blue/green.’

After some experimentation with different colour combinations I decided to keep the background white- partially to compliment the other pieces made for the album and partially to allow textures to be seen. I felt that it was better for the overall look of the artwork to suggest the idea of a cold evening/night with textures and dark hues rather than flooding the image with black.

I also decided to add the plane silhouette to both complete the gap between the tree tops and reference the album title itself.

Artwork: Coming Back





Coming Back, ink, acrylic paint, dry pastel on paper, 15 x 18cm

This is the next artwork in my Gotye Project.

In this piece I wanted to represent two figures- one lonely and missing the other, filled with thoughts about what they are doing, where they are and the uncertainty that goes along with it. The other falling through these thoughts and fading to a vague recollection.

The grey, blue and black hues symbolise these feelings- the colours are darker further away from the figure representing darker thoughts looming. The figure is also slowly being consumed by darker thoughts of the self at the same time.

The other figure exists within the thoughts but is white, vague and also fading into the surrounding thoughts.

You’ve been gone so long you’re fading
And it takes all the time I
can find just retaining
Thoughts of things we did
while you were here
But I know you will return my dear

Main figure reference is from the amazing SenshiStock

(I did upload this a few minutes ago but saw something on the piece that needed changing so I altered it slightly and re-scanned it)
