I’m very happy you found my association with Eno’s work to be as positive as I had intended it to be. Are you familiar with him? I find his music has a haunting and memorable sound. It’s curious that so many painters that work non-objectively also compose or play music. Maybe it’s facility with non-verbal, original communication.
Wow...such a unique depiction of my work! Thank you!!! When I am in the studio I am immersed in paint and music from all types of genres, jazz being my all time favorite. The piece can evolve or change depending on the mood of the music. I have been a drummer since childhood. I am a collector of all styles of hand percussion instruments. Over the years I have developed a color flavor for each beat and harmony within beats and sounds. I find it very interesting that you found a similarity between my painting and creative music...hooray!! I have been currently conceptualizing a new body of work, which will incorporate visual and sound.
Thank you for inspiring artists in their process and growth.
There’s an interesting range of abstraction in your paintings, from ethereal and shifting color fields to more organic symbolism. New Religions is a piece I find graphically powerful, but also nuanced in its decorative ornamentation. Small, “accidental” marks record drips and scumbled passages, while the circular elements suggest astral constellations or mapped destinations. In the context of the title, the earthy yellow ochre and red have sanguineous associations, while the pale cooler ground references the sky or heavens. The central circle could be figurative, but also forms a central eye or port of entry. While it’s a very dominant focal point, the arms of the cross shape do direct my eye into other parts of the work. I’m also drawn to the piece titled The Briny Deep. Having little formal connection to the previous piece, the amorphous fluctuations in hue and value are soothing and calm. I found it ironic that another image you have on the site includes an announcement for work exhibited at Miami International Airport, for my first response was that these pieces were the musical equivalents of Brian Eno’s Music for Airports. I do hope you also see that as a positive association. I have always felt that Eno’s development of the generative genre of music encompasses the changing, evolving process of art making, which originates from a constant system, but flows in multiple directions.
