amazing! great article. and don't forget to check out dylan's entire asian series, on display - for the 1st time in NY:
Is he planning a Pepsi/Will.i.am series?
From the article: "The paintings that Dylan showed me out in L.A. were paintings from his travels in Asia. Some of them looked too big for him to have painted them while he was there, so maybe he had done them from memory or a photograph or a sketch or a drawing. I didn’t ask."
He should have asked. He should have asked a lot of questions about where the material for the paintings came from. Because many appear to be near identical recreations of other paintings and photographs.
In fact, the painting titled "Opium" that he describes is a line by line copy of an old photograph. Maybe Dylan bought the photo in Asia, but otherwise it has nothing to do with his travels.
Here's the NY Times story on Dylan's "inspiration" for the paintings.
