I noticed that some of the folks here on Electronic Cottage are visual artists as well. I also noticed some of the art was a means of diagraming a plan for performance sets or companion art to go with the audio. I see so much inspiring stuff here. Being a creative individual drawing, collaging, painting and photography have been outlets for my self-expression as well.
I have a few Musicians / Visual Artists that have inspired me over the years and what they do. In no particular order. I invite you to check them out and be inspired as well. I also encourage you to share with us what Art inspires your Music/Noise.
Kim Gordon - bass, vocals, guitar for Sonic Youth. Her series of watercolor “noise paintings” depicting her blurred vision of the audience from the stage and depicting the names of experimental and noise groups are very interesting to me. She also works with such mediums as stenciling & sculpting as well.
Exene Cervenka - known as the singer of the punk rock band X. Her Visual Art mediums include Journals and mixed media collages.
Joni Mitchell - Singer & Songwriter and painter. I love her portraits, abstracts, and paintings where she writes on it and it looks like a Collage.
Here is a list of Art books by Musicians Adam & I have in our collection:
Rat Catching, Oak Mot, Round My House, Concrete Inspection by Crispin Hellion Glover
The Primal Screamer - Nick Blinko of Rudimentary Peni
America the Beautiful - Exene Cervenka
Finally here are some more of my own works of Visual Art. I look forward to seeing and hearing more of your Art.
