Bob Dylan the legendary musician/songwriter is also an artist and Halcyon Gallery is showing some of his works right now. The exhibit is a series of his first paintings on canvas, based on drawings and sketches while on tour from 1989-1992. The works shown will complete his Drawn Blank series which debuted at his first exhibit in 2007 in Germany. He’s not only a great musician but a pretty good artist we think.
“I just draw what’s interesting to me, and then I paint it. Rows of houses, orchard acres, lines of tree trunks, could be anything. I can take a bowl of fruit and turn it into a life and death drama. Women are power figures, so I depict them that way. I can find people to paint in mobile home communities. I could paint bourgeois people too. I’m not trying to make social comment or fulfil somebody’s vision and I can find subject matter anywhere. I guess in some way that comes out of the folk world that I came up in.” – Bob Dylan
