Frances Bean Cobain has first gallery show

Frances Bean Cobain Assumes Pseudonym, Debuts Artwork



2:13 pm Tuesday Jul 13, 2010 by Laurie Kamens

We always knew to expect great (or, at the very least, provocative) things from the offspring of two of rock’s major provocateurs, and Frances Bean Cobain’s burgeoning art career has not disappointed. The 17-year-old offspring of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love (pseudonym: Fiddle Tim) just put up her first gallery show Scumfuck at L.A.’s La Luz De Jesus Gallery. Cobain’s art is gritty and visceral (kind of like her dad’s), depicting androgynous, obese, or malnourished characters and fringe public figures like punk anti-legend GG Allin and cult leader Jim Jones. Oh, and there’s one piece with the caption “Treat me like your mother or I’ll eat the sun.” From what we’ve seen, young Frances Bean’s artwork promises to be as controversial as her parents’ musical legacy. After the jump, check out some images from the show and let us know what you think of the alterna-rock scion’s creations.
