The Dave Stewart: Jumpin’ Jack Flash & The Suicide Blonde exhibition opened to the public on Saturday, July 13th at the Sunset Marquis location. A private press hour garnished interviews with the Eurythmics songwriter on July 12, 2013, followed by a private reception that many celebrities attended.
Beyond his creative work in the music industry, Stewart is also a renowned author, director, filmmaker and photographer. His career spans three decades and over 100 million album sales. Behind the scenes, Dave has produced albums and co-written songs with Stevie Nicks, Mick Jagger, Bono, Joss Stone, Bryan Ferry, Gwen Stefani, Tom Petty, Diamian Marley and more, earning numerous Golden Globe and Grammy Awards along the way.
Says Stewart, “I’ve always been obsessed with visual imagery since I was a child. These portraits were mostly taken in my apartment, I don’t know how or why these shoots came together – usually it was just part of a continuing conversation or a spur of the moment thing. I’m always taking photos or filming stuff for no reason other than to document what is going on around me. It’s a kind of re-assurance to myself that these things did actually happen.”
“Dave Stewart is one of the more creative musicians/artist/photographers working today. He continues to produce mind blowing things at a very fast pace. He is always doing something – sound, video, photography, film and music. Working with others on projects. He is a creative powerhouse to watch when it comes to his photography and we are very pleased to present him in this exhibit,” says gallery co-owner and iconic photographer Timothy White.
