The Lost Abbey artist is muralist Sean Dominguez. This is his painting work for the Deliverance:
From the press release:
Sean Dominguez worked overtime on the painting for this label. It is perhaps one of the darkest and most disturbing things he has painted for us. So demented in fact his wife Paige expelled it from their home the moment it was completed.I don't know that I'd call it "demented," though I can understand not wanting it in your living room. A little Bosch for most beer labels, especially since the angels carrying the guy away from hell don't seem particularly nice. The color contrast of the little blue patch of sky with the largely red and dark, threatening foreground gives it the eerie look.
Next, let's look at the Cuvee de Tomme. First, the art on the wall, then the label:
The Persistence of Memory." It's paired with an hourglass of cherries (with which the beer is brewed) and barrels (in which the beer is aged). The label art makes clear that this is a beer with quite a relationship to time. The bright sky both brings out the depth of the barrels and makes the label significantly more welcoming than, say, the Deliverance label.
Finally, we'll look at the Amazing Grace Ale:
I think Dominguez is one of the best artists working in the craft beer industry, but Lost Abbey's art is some of the hardest to find online. They have good high-res images of the bottles themselves, but the art is not always easy to come by. Which is why I was very pleased when brewery spokesman Sage Osterfeld told me in an email that they're putting together a comprehensive art gallery for those - like me - who want to see more of the very fruitful Lost Abbey-Sean Dominguez partnership.
