Back in the fall of 1995, artist David West began doing portraits of musicians in rehearsal spaces in New York City. He used pencil and paint, and he didnŐt get too wrapped up in formal details; heŐs mostly interested in capturing Ňthe emotional dynamicsÓ of music, or what itŐs like to feel being moved by the music and/or its creators. He says, ŇYou just do it.Ó His portraits and observations on the arty likes of Blixa Bargeld, Throbbing Gristle, Wire, Cat Power, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith and Pavement are collected in a very nice little book called Drawing Down the Muse available via publisher and literary mag Sensitive Skin (http://www.sensitiveskinmagazine.com)
