Price: $750.00 Title: Adding The Blue Deluxe Edition Author: Chrissie Hynde
In Adding The Blue, Chrissie Hynde's first collection of paintings is presented chronologically, beginning with still life studies and culminating in vibrant abstract compositions. Working exclusively in oil on canvas, her art encompasses a wide variety of subjects, including figures, portraits of friends and family, self-portraits and landscapes. Adding The Blue is a vibrant book of oil paintings that are, in Brian Eno's words, 'full of life, love and discovery'.
'It's pretty much like writing songs. I might know what I want to write about, but generally I just dive in and see what's down there.' - Chrissie Hynde
Adding The Blue features an original text by Chrissie Hynde, and includes forewords by visionary musician and artist, Brian Eno, and the Royal Academy's Artistic Director, Tim Marlow.
Narrated throughout with Chrissie Hynde's thoughts, anecdotes and reflections, over more than 200 pages Adding The Blue offers a brand new perspective on her life and art.
'The fact that she's a great musician doesn't undermine her painting; it underpins it... I love the fact that in her studio, below the pots filled with brushes and under the table filled with tubes of paint, is a basket full of plectrums. Tools of her trades, old and new.' - Tim Marlow, Royal Academy of Arts
