Black Parts, by Antony
The Cut, an exhibition of artwork by artist and musician Antony, is now showing at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. gallery in New York City. Antony, whose full name is Antony Hegarty, is lead singer for the band Antony and the Johnsons.
According to the gallery:
The initial inspiration that provided the framework for the exhibition was a poem written by the artist entitled The Cut, which describes the source of creation as a slit in the sky. The marks that the artist makes on the surface of his artwork can at once be understood as scars as well as applications that have the ability to heal the surface of the paper, fabric, or canvas. A delicate line can be juxtaposed with a harsh application of paint or a torn edge.
The Cut opened May 31 and continues through July 12, 2013. Contact the gallery for more information.

In 2010 Antony and the Johnsons released a special edition of their album Swanlights which included the CD inside a 144-page art book containing paintings, collages, photography and writing by Antony.
