I am an artist and a musician, and in my work I explore the indelible nature of visual art with the fleeting essence of music.
While these two disciplines have always felt like two distinct entities each as huge as planets, I have sought to find a satisfying way to bridge the gap towards holistic visual identity.
In using music in service to art, I am focusing on creating visual interpretations to different tunes. In response to certain musical idols and favorite pieces, I have created visual pieces that seek to enter into the music and have as direct an experience with the two as possible. Sometimes working in segments as the music presents, other times as an over all impression of the piece. . This is a body and soul proposition; often hypnotic and lyrical in nature, ever in search of that synergy
In my drawings most often the lines are smooth and lyrical as in the fluid nature of a sax improvisation. In paintings such as the series "Round Midnight" the blues, greens, and blacks are used to capture the mood of the haunting smoky melody.
Kandinsky said "Lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting...and just stop thinking. Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to 'walk about' into a hitherto unkown world. If the answer is yes, what more do you want?"
