Rocker unveils new Black Series art
Wentworth Gallery presents a collection of works from legendary musician and fine artist, Paul Stanley. Since the artist’s last exhibit over four years ago, Stanley has created new original paintings, hand painted signature Paul Stanley Ibanez guitars, mixed media originals, and limited edition artworks including new works on metal. Several of the pieces on display come from the Black Series that was originally commissioned in 2020 for museum exhibition. As with most events in 2020, that exhibit was canceled due to the pandemic.
With the Black Series, Stanley pushes the boundaries of his art by starting with a black canvas and creating vibrance and emotion with his trademark bright colors. A wide selection of curated works is currently being showcased in Wentworth Gallery locations throughout the United States.
“Paul’s artwork really connects with people. In particular, his unique use of colors elicits strong emotions. It is extremely rare to sell an entire gallery of art during a show, but Paul does it regularly. He has become an art phenom,” says Christian O’Mahony, Principal Wentworth Gallery.
Stanley will appear in person to unveil the new Black Series on December 17th between 5-8 pm at Wentworth Gallery at Mall at Short Hills in Short Hills, NJ. Stanley will also appear at the Florida locations of Wentworth Galleries weekend of January 28, 2023 and the Washington, DC area Wentworth Galleries the weekend of February 18, 2023. Details TBA shortly.
Stanley designed and created the iconic Kiss emblem which remains universally recognized as one of the greatest logos of the 20th century. His artistic and visual input has been and continues to be seen in his designs of Kiss album covers, performance stages and apparel.
Stanley returned to his passion for painting ten years ago by creating portraits and abstracts that are emotionally charged compositions. His tremendous success with his artwork has led to an entirely new fan and media presence for the accomplished musician, actor and artist. He maximizes the direct and powerful impact of his paintings through scale, texture, color and simplicity of imagery.
Stanley’s works have been praised by well-known and distinguished art concerns and acquired by fans, celebrities and art collectors worldwide. Stanley’s works have been coveted by collectors as evidenced by consecutive sell-out art shows with total sales in the tens of millions. Additionally, the Artist has been commissioned to create numerous large works that are on exhibition globally.
