BOB DYLAN. The New Orleans Series: from the 5th of February to the 10th of March 2013 at Palazzo Reale, Milan (Italy)

The poet of the american music, universally acknowledged for hits like Blowin’ in The Wind, Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,  The Times They Are A-Changin’… – has always been fond of painting.

We're talking about Bob Dylan, obviously; from the 5th of February to the 10th of March he will be at Palazzo Reale in Milan, Italy with 22 paintings belonging to the *New Orleans* series.

A recent creation of the artist who took free inspiration from photographic subjects, this work alternates isolated subjects and choral -almost suspended- scenes; all of them telling tales of a deep tension between violence and love.

The New Orleans Dylan portraits is the town of the 40's and 50's; very far, thus, from the present town so deeply changed by the flood that reshaped its features and its disposition.

We might just take a peek at some of the paintings....and click here to know the promotions of our hotel and how to pay only 79 euro for a double room:

Questa mostra…. bob dylan la vuole in serie… di pitture….

Questa mostra e’un mostra e’ legata a new orleans e quindi sono 23 dipinti che si intitolano la serie di new orleans

Molte immagini sono prese da fotogrammi di film in bianco e nero, fotografie….

E poi c’e’ una sala con 4 cortili molto colorati con 4 quadri, abbastanza diversi dagli altri quadri, che abbiamo lasciato alla fine della mostra che invece sono quadri che…..bob dylan fa basandoci invece su disegni che lui schizza dal vero..

Perche’ a lui piace molto camminare nei luoghi dove dove poi va a suonare ai concerti e passa del tempo

Lo stile e’ molto veloce e molto ….anche molto grezzo e ruvido come pittura…. non diverso  diverso …..da molti artisti dell’arte contemporanea piu’ famosi di quanto non sia bb dylan…..

Guardando i giadri di puo’ tentare di trovare un filo rosso tra la pittura e la sua musica

Ma forse credo che siano piu’ le atmosfere…..

I quadri….. e’ difficile pensare che dei quadri possano aggiungere qualcosa a una musica

Particolarmente a quella di bob dylan che e’ conosciuta in tutto il mondo Che e’ assolutmanete qualcosa di universale

 e’ difficle pensare che dei dipinti possano…..Anche come mezzo espressivo…sono qlcs che uno deve vedere dal vivo oppure non fanno la stessa diffusione….

Aggiunge sicuramente qualcosa…..a…  a Bob Dylan persona, bob Dylan manager…..questa intimita’, questa necessita d volere essere n personaggio molto intimo, molto isolato 

BD E’ uno dei tanti musicisti che poi dipingono anche ……mi piaceva questa sfida di mostrare un lato  di un artsta secondo me valido

Altri artisti musicisti tipo david bowire miles davis ha un …………dipingeva cn grande passione….

Credo che chi ha un cosi’ forte rapporto col pubblico chi viva di questa esperienza musicale ripsetto al public Nella pittura trovi n momento di initita’ e di silezni che gli consente di riflettere forse anche sulla musica…

E quindi non credo che sia un passatempo…paola conte dipinge, lorenzo cherubii dipinge e credo anche dipinga….credo che

Dentri l’arte visiva il musicista ritrova un po’ di intimita’, un po’ di quei confini che nella musica…………..non ha….

 

 

 

This exhibition…..Bob Dylan wants it in series of paintings…
This exhibition is an exhibition linked to new Orleans and so they are 23 paintings whose title  is *The New Orleans Series*.
Lots of images are taken from black & white movie frames, pictures….
and there’s a hall with 4 yards… very colourful….with 4 paintings……quite different from the others…we’ve left them at the end of the exhibition….which (the paintings *other than* the yards, I think) are, instead, paintings Bob Dylan makes basing on drawings he sketches from real life.

 

*******************************************************************

The style is very fast and very…..a very rough and crude painting, too……it’s no different….no different ……from many contemporary artists more famous than Bob Dylan.

As we watch the paintings we can try to find a fil rouge linking his painting and his music.
But I think it’s more the atmosphere….

 

****************************************************

The paintings……it’s difficult to think some paintings may add anything to his music…..particularly to Bob Dylan’s music, since it’s so widely known all over the world…..even as a means of expression…..they are something you must either watch live or they won’t give you the same impression….

 

They surely add something to Bob Dylan as a person…..Bob Dylan as a manager (???)……

This intimacy, this need to be a very intimate and isolated character….
****************************************************************************


Bob Dylan is one among many musicians who are also painters……I liked the challenge of showing another side of an artist….a valuable side,  in my opinion…


More musicians, like David Bowie, Miles Davis have….he painted with great passion.
I think those who have such a strong relation with an audience, those who live by this musical experience with their audience may find a moment of intimacy and silence in painting and this allows them to ponder on their music….


So I don’t think it’s just a hobby…Paolo Conte paints, Lorenzo Cherubini paints and I think that he paints too…..
Inside visual arts a musician finds a little bit of intimacy, some of those boundary lines he doesn’t have in music….
