'So The Echo' visually weaves the past five years for Brandon, who spent much time honing his craft, displaying his work, and using art as a tool for activism. Beautifully designed, the book reveals many new sketches and works with watercolor and other experimental techniques, as well as very personal photos and journal entries. There is a breath and space to the book and artwork that is a departure from his previous publications but the intimacy remains very much in tact.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
’s work as a singer, songwriter, both as a solo artist and with his platinum-selling rock band, is well documented and universally acclaimed. But now his other life’s work -- that of a painter -- has been garnering increasing attention and devoted audiences of its own.
In his painting and drawings, Boyd reveals a personal, freeform, ambiguous kind of visual style that focuses on magic, serendipity, curiosity and mystery. Describing his art-making process as a kind of “blissful, familiar trance,” Boyd’s works carry both the evidence of the beautiful chaos and the power of revealing the narratives inside of it. His images are constructed by chance through colorful ink spills and the contents of his own travel journals. As songs might come to him in a dream, so he discovers the vibrant, witty, eccentrically classical constellations of shape and circumstance that hide in plain view or emerge from his own quieted mind through another kind of sight.
