Yes, Courtney Love is now a visual artist. And apparently David LaChapelle is the one who encouraged her to show her work and supplied her with materials.
All created last year the show consists almost entirely of self-portraits done with colored pencils, watercolors, ink, and pastels on paper. Pain, sex, violence, drugs, and celebrities (including a portrait of Gwyneth Paltrow holding her infant son) feature prominently in the approximately 45 works on display.
