Ever Vivid – States of Being

September 2021

Artwork for a double vinyl album in gatefold sleeve on Exalt Records.

The first time I listened to this album, before it even had a title, the music gave me images of something broken or smashed. When I found out it was to be called States of Being that idea made made even more sense.

I explored lots of ideas around the theme of broken objects, from pots to mirrors and windows. I eventually came across this smashed glass image and hit on the idea to put a person at the centre of it, the fracture lines radiating out from the figure, a suitable metaphor for the music.
