Black Sabbath Legend Bill Ward Launching New Exhibit

(hennemusic) Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward will present an exhibit of his fine art collection, "Absence of Corners | Rhythm On Canvas", at the Fathom Gallery in Los Angeles.

Running August 15-29, the event will launch on August 15 with two artist discussions by Ward in which he will detail the concepts underlining the artwork and relate personal stories of how each piece is connected to his private or professional life.

The free lectures are set for 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. and attendance to each is available on a first-come basis; pre-registration is required at the Fathom Gallery.

Over a year in the making, "Absence Of Corners" is the result of a complex multi-disciplined approach to creating art that combines high-end digital technology with the oldest known musical instrument. The resulting images capture Ward's experimental spirit and translate onto canvas powerful abstract expressions of his music.

"When I'm working on new ideas, musically much of what's played is guided by a visual appearance or shape," explains Ward. "Since my early childhood, I've played drums in visuals as well as sound. When I write, there's always an image, sometimes a color attached to what's being created... I am delighted with the captured expressions - from my head and my heart. Their arrival onto canvas is beautiful." Read more here.
