Photos by G. Art by Courtney Love.
Finally! Rock goddess Courtney Love is making headlines not for her scandalous tweets and her wild life, but instead for a side of her that the public has not gotten to see – her art! “And She’s Not Even Pretty,” at Fred Torres Collaborations in New York showcases 45 works of art by Courtney Love. Her drawings reference the isolation of the Rock and Roll life, shattered romances, insecurity and rejection.
During the press preview for the exhibit, Courtney Love fielded questions and she mentioned that most of the works in this exhibit were made between 2011 and 2012. It seemed that Courtney was uneasy talking to the art press but she stayed to do interviews and answer questions for about an hour and a half! I asked her who her favorite artists were and she mentioned Julian Schnabel and David LaChapelle, but said “there are so many I love.”
If you are a fan of Courtney Love’s music, you will not want to miss this exhibit as you will get to see a very vulnerable side to the hard living singer. The works range in size and below, you can see my favorite panel in the exhibit.
For more detail, head over to Fred Torres Collaborations (located at 527 West 29th Street) in New York. “And She’s Not Even Pretty” by Courtney Love runs from May 3 to June 15, 2012.
After the jump, see a photo of Courtney talking to the press as well as my signature – a photo with the artist.
Thanks again Courtney. It was great talking to you and congratulations on your first of what I am sure will be many exhibits!
