A unique, hand-embellished and hand-signed giclee on paper by cultural icon Bob Dylan.
Between 1989 and 1992, Dylan began to sketch, rapidly, in order to “relax and refocus a restless mind.” He chronicled his life on the road: in between gigs, on trains, in cafés, backstage.
'Train Tracks’ is one of the most iconic drawings from ‘The Drawn Blank Series’. The image of the train track receding in to the distance, with no beginning and no end is reminiscent of Dylan’s own journey. Having played more than 2,500 shows since June 1988, Dylan continues travelling across the world from city to city. Trains have always played an important part in Dylan's music, writings and art.
The 'Side Tracks' collection sees Bob Dylan exploring a range of tonal variation, and changes in mood and atmosphere that bring fresh and new interpretations to this iconic image. Restless, and not content to put his brush down, Dylan has reinvented the image again and again over the course of these works. Each unique print in the collection is hand-embellished by Dylan and has been dated and named by location, evoking a specific time and place on his continuous journey.
