The Garden Of Abandon:
I.The Summer Queen
II.The Winter King

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (who were later known as the Pre-Raphaelites) were initially a Seven member group of English artists that rejected the modern art doctrines of their time. Influenced by Romanticism and often choosing to focus on Medieval, Shakespearian, and Arthurian themes, they searched for a beauty they felt lost and sometimes laughed at by their contemporaries. They held a deep reverence for the natural world and a strong belief that freedom and responsibility were inseparable. It was a common practice amongst them to instill multiple layers of symbolism into their works such as the mythological and metaphorical interpretations of flowers and plants. This album is a dedication to them and an absolute rejection of the ugliness of our current times.

“I mean by a picture a beautiful romantic dream of something that never was, never will be—in a light, better than any light ever shone—in a land no one can define or remember, only desire—and the forms divinely beautiful.” —Edward Burne-Jones
