Jimi’s Nightmare Distorted Guitar Sculpture

Jimi’s Nightmare (Distorted Guitar #1) is the first work in sculptor Bruce Gray’s upcoming series of distorted guitars. This sculpture was created from a cut up and reassembled Fender Squire Guitar. Made for The Zimmer Children’s Museum in Los Angeles, it will be featured in the exhibit, Show & Tell: The Art of Harmony. Bruce states that, “I have always found musical instruments to be fascinating, comprised of interesting shapes and very beautiful to look at. The electric guitar with its curves and sleek glossy finish reminds me of expensive Italian sport scars or a woman’s body. This is a perfect subject matter for the artist to transform into their own unique vision. A distorted musical instrument has a surreal quality, and this sculpture is an homage to Picasso’s deconstructed instrument paintings and assemblages.” See more of Bruce Gray’s whimsical art at his website, Bruce Gray Dot Com.
