Courtney Love was in Connecticut Friday evening for the opening of her new art exhibit at the Lyman Allyn Museum in New London.

The images were all intensely visceral, with frantic lines and images of women crying both tears and blood. Love said there was a very specific theme.

“It was a lot about a romance, it was a lot about a particular heartbreak,” she said. “It was like one dude, basically‚Ķ I got a lot of art out of it, I’m way over it. Like, we’re cool and shit.”

Love would only talk about her artistic work during the event, but did divulge that she’s recorded a new single and is planning for a May release.

As the former Hole frontwoman moved amid a crushing throng of fans, she pointed out several images. One included what she said was a suicidal vision of Mick Jagger turning into Shiva. She was in a continuous state of posing for photos and talking with fans.

“I had to seize the moment, this is the moment of my lifetime right now,” said Kathleen Layton, of North Kingston, RI after posing for a photo with the rock star. “I’ve loved Hole since I’ve been about 16 years old. I’ve seen her repeatedly, i’ve read every morsel that I could about her.”

    Courtney is a great song writer and good actress and I want to like her art. It’s terrible, she is no triple threat. It looks like a 15 year old girls doodles on her high school binder. They are overdone and have no talent. Some people can pull of the child like scribbles but courtney can’t. These are embarassing. As a fan I wish she did not do this. Because I can defend her music critics and a lot of the wacky shit but not this. This is lame
