2010 Ric Ocasek


Teahead Scraps

Ric Ocasek
March 26th – April 25th 2010
Opening Reception Friday March 26th 7-10pm


Teahead Scraps marks Ric Ocasek’s first art exhibition in New York and
features never before seen drawings selected from a body of work that spans
the last 30 years. Like the music of his beloved rock band The Cars, his
drawings are unabashedly pop- and yet unlike his music’s super sleek veneer,
these works are a bit more raw and unedited, revealing meditative moments of
a Zen-like drawing practice. Never intended for public view, these works on
paper are fluid and unselfconscious abstractions made with colored pencils,
pens, and markers. Ric’s spontaneous, rhythmic mark-making is completely
musical and explores repetition and patterns with psychedelic colors and
sinuous lines.

While The Cars as a band were perhaps the perfect embodiment of pop art and
pop music (Andy Warhol even directed an amazing Cars video), the art of Ric
Ocasek can easily be seen as another extension of this union by one of its
pioneers and constant practitioners.

Ric Ocasek is an artist, musician, writer, and former vocalist and guitarist
for The Cars. He has produced countless records during his career including
seminal releases by such pioneering bands as Suicide and the Bad Brains as
well as pop sensations such as Weezer and No Doubt. He currently lives and
works in New York.
