Not too much needs to be said about these paintings by Jason Edmiston because everything is so obvious.
They are obviously perfectly conceived.
Obviously executed to perfection.
I think my favorite part about these musical monsters is not the ease with which you can identify the musicians even though they are wonderfully distorted – but it’s the very serious approach that was taken to create the series. It’s that it’s all just done so goddamned well.
I take my arena rock seriously, and Edmiston takes turning those people into horrific creatures seriously too.
And I respect that.
