MUSICIAN TRIES NEW OUTLET
PAUL'S NON-MUSICAL HITS

by Marco R. Dellacava

Kiss singer PAUL STANLEY fell into a funk after his 2001 divorce. His lifeline was unexpected: a paintbrush.

'Pouring out how I feel onto a canvas is both solitary and cathartic,' says Stanley, whose dabbling has turned serious. His art sales topped $2 million last year, and a new exhibit of his work is set for July 25-26 at the Wentworth Gallery in King of Prussia, Pa.

Reporter Marco R. della Cava asked Jeff Marinelli, publisher of Art and Living magazine, to weigh in on the non-musical hits of the rock star.

'When I look at Paul's work, I immediately think, 'Peter Max,' ' says Marinelli, referring to the American pop artist whose bold colors and psychedelic visions helped define the '60s.

Stanley's similarly color-packed creations have themes that change from canvas to canvas. Some images are iconic (the Statue of Liberty) while others appear personal (a heart inside a gaping mouth).

'He seems to pick what he'll paint just as he steps up to the easel,' says Marinelli. He adds with a laugh: 'A guy like Paul Stanley has fun when he paints something like a vase with flowers. It's a chance to show that Kiss has a sensitive side.'

GREAT PERFORMANCE
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER

Hello KISS!

Saturday I went to the Graspop festival in Dessel (Belgium) together with my two daughters and we witnessed a great KISS performance. You were magnificent and we will never forget this evening. We hope you do come back to Europe and Belgium next year ! A journalist of 'Het Belang van Limburg' (a Belgian national journal) states in his article : 'KISS was the first worthy headliner in years'. Great comment, I think
