News Alert: Rock Music Art Originals Available to Purchase Exclusively Through Saatchi for the First Time!

Rock Art OriginalsI started the Rock Art Series back in July of 2012. I thought it’d take me no longer than a year to complete.

How wrong I was!

I am still busy with the 10 paintings I set out to create. You can read the WHOLE enticing, dramatic and emotionally provocative story HERE.

I was going to wait until I painted the last one (Queen) before I released all the originals for sale.

What changed my mind?

I’ve been getting SO many requests for the prices of the originals of these pieces that I just decided to bite the bullet and set them free into the wild unknown.

I’ve grown very attached to many of them as they are dotted all over my house — from flanking my bed to gracing my hubby’s music studio. It’s time for me to detach and let someone else enjoy the depths of these works, in the flesh.

So without further ado…here they are all laid out for you to see what they’d look like in a room and to scale (click on pic’s to take you to the gallery where you can check out the prices/make an offer/buy a print at SaatchiOnline):

Who’s Next Up on the Easel?

I am still effectively busy trying to complete this series.

The next painting I announced was going to be David Bowie. I was devastated to hear of his passing earlier this month and it feels strange now to carry on with my plans knowing he is no longer with us. But, who knows, perhaps he’ll make an appearance in spirit like my Jeff Buckley painting. 🙂

Thanks for taking this journey with me.

The Resurrection of Muse — Rock Art Painting no. 7 Photographs

Header Muse by Cherie Roe Dirksen

If you don’t already know about this series of paintings to the best musicians ever — please check out the other works of art and how I subliminally came about them HERE.

So far I’ve covered (with lashings of paint and canvas) Radiohead, The Beatles, Jeff Buckley, Pink Floyd, Skunk Anansie and Templeton.

I’ve just worked out that it has been a whole YEAR since I did painting no. 6!  Where has the time gone?

Couldn’t Have Planned it Better

I’m a firm believer in things happening in their own time and for the right reasons and this painting just happens to coincide with the hype to the release of Muse’s 7th album, ‘Drones’ — due out on the 8th June, 2015.

I would like to say that this painting was finished a few weeks ago — before I knew what the album was called — and due to unforeseen circumstances (me and my hubby, Mike, having had the privilege of being in the movie, ‘Detour’ being filmed in our town and then us both getting ill on top of that!) I haven’t had the chance to reveal it yet.

Drones, Clones and Blood

What really struck me when Muse released the name of the album ‘drones‘ (and all three of the members having their eyes blacked out on one of the promotional photo’s) was that there were (in the painting) strange clay-like creatures that immediately emerged from the middle of the canvas and I jokingly said to Mike that they look like ‘clones’.

One of these clones even has wide, white, staring, blank eyes…eerie or just proof of quantum revelations?  Can we really pluck things from the ether before they are physically ‘out there’ — i.e. did I tap into what was going on in the Muse studio?

I really dig how this works!

A friend of mine got a sneak peak over Skype as I was in the process of painting this and asked me what all the blood was about in the center of the painting.  At the time I had no idea because, as most of you know by now, these paintings materialize themselves — I’m just acting as the conduit.

Muse just released their first song ‘Psycho’ with a video on Saturday and as it started nearing the end, the penny dropped…

There was blood all over the one characters face and the song is generally about the ‘manufacturing’ of soldiers to become mindless killing machines.

I hope I’m whetting your appetite here.  Cause further down I’m going to take you on the pictorial process — the start to finish photo’s of what is called ‘Resurrection’.

The Evasive Message Behind the Art

In next weeks blog I’ll be taking you through the emotions that came up whilst painting this so we can get a better perspective of what this artwork may represent.

Personally, I’m still a bit in the dark and will have to mine the painting to extract the subliminal message by unpacking the words I jotted down on the sides of the canvas.

So, without further ado…let’s have a look at MUSE on canvas:

no. 1

no.2

no. 3 no. 4 no. 5 no. 6 no. 7 no.8 no.9 And now for the grand reveal…
