An exhibition of brand new limited edition graphics from The Drawn Blank Series by Bob Dylan will be on display at The Halcyon Gallery, 29 New Bond Street from Saturday 25 July. Based on a series of drawings and sketches Dylan executed while on tour during the late 1980s and early 1990s, the drawings express the sense of dislocation inherent to Dylan’s life on the road.
The Drawn Blank Series was launched at Halcyon Gallery, Mayfair, in June 2008 to widespread critical acclaim, and is the most comprehensive and authoritative collection of Bob Dylan’s paintings ever assembled. The Lightbox exhibition was the first chance to view the works outside London, and the tour will continue in 2009 to Edinburgh’s City Arts Centre.
Dylan has been a committed visual artist for more than four decades, and this collection casts a new light on the creativity of one of the world’s most important and influential figures.
The Drawn Blank Series echoes the themes and images of Dylan’s prose, poetry and music, and the paintings are based on sketches made while on the road during the period of 1989 to 1992.
