DEATH BECOMES YOU: A VISUAL TRIBUTE TO SUNN O)))
March 3, 2017
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Sixteen artists have come together to culminate a body of work inspires by the discography of iconic doom metal band, SUNN O))). Their work will premiere as a visual compliment to SUNN’s one-night-only performance at the Coolidge Theatre March 16th from 8-10 PM.
Artists from all over the world contributed work inspired by or emulating their experience with SUNN O)))’s music.
“The first time I heard Sunn I was really into the depths and boundaries they push in terms of what is considered experimental music,” says local illustrator and Death Becomes You Participant Joe Gettler. ”My piece is inspired by Aghartha, which I see as being about the death of an old world and a creation of a new.”
The artists come from a variety of illustration, painting and tattooing backgrounds, working in pen, graphite and oil to encompass the soundscapes in a visual manner.
After the premiere of the install, the show will be moved to Eridanos Tattoo and Gallery in Cambridge where it will be on display from March 17th through April 15th. There will be a closing reception open to the public April 15th from 8-11 PM.
