Alison Mosshart of The Kills and The Dead Weather has opened her first solo art exhibition in New York.
The exhibition, titled Fire Power, opened at Manhattan’s Joseph Gross Gallery and features 127 pieces including paintings, drawings, mixed media, and tapestries that “reflect Mosshart’s life on the road.”
Pieces in the exhibition include portraits, works on Persian carpets, and “tire track” abstract pieces, Stereogum reports. Mosshart is said to have recently settled into a studio space and has no formal artistic training. She describes her process as quick and passionate.
The exhbition runs until July 11.
Speaking in 2014 Mosshart said that The Kills‘ next album will be “completely different” with bandmate Jamie Hince said to have been looking to dubstep and reggae for inspiration.
Speaking over a year ago, Mosshart said: “We’re trying to make a record that’s completely different. Anything that sounds like it could have sat quite easily on any of the other records will probably get scrapped or reworked, played on some kind of different instruments with a completely different kind of rhythm and a completely different kind of feel. That’s what takes so long, is trying to break out of the thing that you know and you’re good at and trying to get good at something else.”
Earlier that year The Kills played a number of live shows, including support slots for Jack White, Queens of the Stone Age, The Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys.
