Echo & The Bunnymen Guitarist Mounts Art Show at Substrate
As we've observed in the past, the worlds of visual and sonic art are far from mutually exclusive. That's a point that The Substrate Fine Art Gallery is particularly interested in illustrating, and towards that end, they're getting set to host a show featuring works by one Will Sergeant. While Sergeant may be best known as the guitarist who has made crucial contributions to the trailblazing sound of his band, Echo & The Bunnymen, ever since the early '80s, visitors to the Substrate show will soon see that there are more than six strings to his bow.
When My Own Worst Enemy — Sergeant's first big U.S. show — occupies Substrate from May 18 to June 16, arriving straight from the Penny Lane gallery in Liverpool, all the facets of Sergeant's visual art will be visible. Collages, abstract works, screen prints, minimalist pieces — they'll all be represented, with such evocative titles as Trying To Master Unseen Forces and Behind the Voodoo Curtain. "It has always been a mystical process and I still don't understand where it comes from," says Sergeant of the source for his artistic inspiration. But when his works are displayed at the Substrate, such questions will likely become irrelevant — visitors can simply soak up the experience for themselves.
