Meat Light—The Uncle Meat Project/Object Audio Documentary

The Cover Art

Theo Holdt, "My Artwork On The Cover Frank Zappa's Posthumous Release Of Meat Light," theoholdt.com, January 15, 2017

I met Gail and Diva Zappa in LA at The Brewery Art Walk in 2014. Gail saw this artwork which was part of a 250 panel installation that I did at The Back Space in Portland Oregon in 2012. It stuck with her and she contacted me a month later and told me she wanted it for the cover of a new release of Frank Zappa's work from the 60's. This painting is part of a previous series that I did in 2004 or 5. I added it to the I am Drawing a Blank series after I ran it through the table saw to make it square. Sometimes the path a painting makes is more interesting than you would suspect.
