A Confluence of Sounds with Jazz in Visual Art is the outgrowth of a conceptual framework evolved through my art exploration as fine art and in performance. Personal myth and romanticism are combined through the process of writing, then drawn into shaped non-verbal symbolism. This unique visual language connects the abstract with the figurative forms resulting in works such as this largely abstract painting series, or its preceeding often more figurative depictions which include ceramic sculpture and performance art. All content refers back to a central theme which governs my expression, that is; Art is Communication, Love is the Allegory. .
This subjective root of my art stems from an underlying continous narrative. The unconscious is reflected in modern myth as drama. Active animate female archytypes define their experience of a seamless emotional supernatural life. Fundamentally psychological in essence, my art is an intuitive rather than an intellectual response to everyday reality. As the observer relates to an arbitrarily existential domain, the soul takes its clips of sanity from contrast. Mortality composed within immortality, the male born within the female, nature's cast of characters; animal, plant, antmospheric, infinite, supreme in all being conceived within our human perceptions. A tenuous mind resides in the fortress of perpetuity. Art, however, for me, offers an illusion of permanence, so I choose to believe...
A Confluence of Sounds is the musical score for Symphony 1000. Its archetypal composers, The Jazz Telepathizers, open up on stage inviting an improvisational jazz concert derived from these series of images. The notational reading, when played by participating musicians, lifts the painted abstractions onto a vibratory plane where sound and shape immerge out of the spectrum of light captured in hues.
Will this expansive approach taken literally into Jazz lead an audience to an unpredictable meeting of the minds? Visual and musical artists, toss the soup on the floor left to chance? Their own...exclusive compositions... rhyming in precise reflection of the other's soul.?. ...
Can there be a Painting moved into a sonar realm of tactile experience, and music moves to the fllicker of a brush?
Let us see..
