ROCK OF AGES///DAMIEN HIRST ART DIRECTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE HOURS

December 10, 2008  |  Uncategorized  |  Comments Off on ROCK OF AGES///DAMIEN HIRST ART DIRECTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE HOURS

In THE HOURS’ new video for “See the Light,” Hollywood danger girl SIENNA MILLER dons a hospital gown, gets trapped in a glass case in a bag shop, smokes, talks about suicide, cries a lot, undergoes an MRI scan, and smears herself in cow’s blood in front of four eviscerated, wall-mounted bovine carcasses. If this last image brings to mind DAMIEN HIRST, that’s no accident. Hirst, a friend of the band, was art director on the video, made by “American History X” director TONY KAYE. The Hours’ singer, Antony Genn, has found a good friend in Hirst—the artist not only contributed artwork to their first record, 2001’s “Narcissus Road,” and to their forthcoming EP, also titled “See the Light,” but has founded a record label, IS GOOD, to promote their music.

CHARLIE KRAFFT’S FINE ART FIREARMS

Charles Krafft from Patricia O'Brien on Vimeo.

Speaking of guns, now seems like the perfect time to reflect on the incredible ballistic art of the Northwest’s favorite son, CHARLIE KRAFFT. An accomplished ceramicist with formal training in the ancient art of Dutch “delft” pottery, Krafft has channeled this classical aesthetic into the production of realistic porcelain weaponry and military paraphernalia all decorated in the genre’s classical blue and white motifs. We can only imagine that receiving a package of these in the mail puts you on the FBI’s most-watched list for life…
