Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain discussed how a ‘horrifying’ tattoo Courtney Love got of her when pregnant inspired her new art piece at a recent art show with W magazine.

Her painting in this show, featuring a small, angel-like character in one corner, was inspired by a tattoo Courtney Love got when she was pregnant with her daughter.

“It’s supposed to be her interpretation of what she thinks I’m going to look like when I was in her stomach, and it’s horrible, terrifying,” explained Cobain. “I tried to reimagine it from the perspective of imagining what I think she thought I would have looked like in the womb. It’s a weird train of thought, but I tried to think from her perspective.”

Her mom was also there tonight to take in the piece herself. “She’s around somewhere,” Cobain said. “I’m glad she came out. It’s really nice of her to support me.”

By at that point in the evening, there was a line halfway down the block on Melrose Avenue, by La Cienega Boulevard, across the street from Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs, where previously there had been a billboard of Cobain from the spring 2017 campaign.

“I really enjoy the aesthetic of building my fashion sense,” she said of working in the industry. “I enjoy the process of going through fashion phases. I don’t love the narcissism that comes with that world, though there are people who are negated from that way of thinking. Like my friend Jeremy [Scott], who’s here tonight. He’s the most brilliant, kind person […] So, people like him make me feel encouraged to be able to have fun with it, and not allow it to be the epicenter of my universe. As long as I keep it at arm’s length, I really like it.”
