We asked Adrian, how music inspired this piece :
" My paintings chronicle the mythic narrative of the Border Creatures, a fictional race of beings that live in a lush and wild landscape. This painting, "Forging the Fatherdress," depicts the Border Creatures collaborating to create a a supernatural garment that will help them protect their home from a mysterious and spectral threat. The ritual depicted here requires every creature to pour their expressive energy into the dress; painting, fashion, poetry, and music combine into a harmonious whole through their actions. And throughout this moment of creativity, the character Glow Gardener provides a soundtrack on the guitar. "
