Estranged Black Sabbath Drummer Bill Ward to Showcase Rhythmic Art Collection
Estranged Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward, who sat out the band’s current album and tour cycle due to contractual issues, may not be manning the kit for the group, but he is remaining creatively stimulated. Ward will debut his fine art collection, ‘Absence of Corners,’ on Aug. 1.
Ward has worked on the rhythmically-centered project for a year and it’s a new and exciting way of approaching art as we know it. The drummer employed a sophisticated formula to create the collection’s visuals, using an array of drumsticks and rhythmic accessories that produce light, much like a painter makes use of brushes and oils.
The movements featured within the captured rhythms are then studied and developed into abstract artwork that showcases a dimension not normally seen by the human eye. It’s certainly unique.
Each piece is limited and numbered, and signed by Ward. They come in traditional gallery sizes (30″ x 18″) as well as massive (106″ x 30″), so if you collect art or are a huge Ward fan, you can decided between whichever suits your fancy. More info about the art project and Ward can be found here.
