Late Cars Frontman Ric Ocasek’s Art to be Displayed in New Jersey
The art work of late Cars front man Ric Ocasek will now be on display and available for purchase starting Sept. 1 at the Wentworth Galleries located in New Jersey, according to an announcement.
Ocasek’s art was influenced by the late Andy Warhol, who directed the Car’s 1984 video for the song, “Hello Again.”
“Art is a way to release tension and to organize my thoughts,” the singer, guitarist and songwriter once said of his interest in art. “It’s something I do while pondering an outcome. The drawings start with a shape and explode from there.”
Ocasek–whose interest was primarily in pop-art–also stated: ““The process of drawing is the same as writing a song. They both start with a blank page.”
Wentworth Gallery locations in New Jersey include Short Hills and Atlantic CIty.
