Many of my paintings are inspired by music. This is one of my favs, its called Slow Dance and is from my Jazz Lines series.
Slow movements in music often allow for the most expressive communication, and Jazz is no exception. Every moody, melancholy, thoughtful note wrapped up in bone melting vibrato and intense melodies, tugging at heart strings and calling forth emotions long locked away, all the colours of your life.
‘Jazz Lines’ is an exploration of the soulful nature of jazz. Curvaceous bold lines represent the underlying structured nature of jazz. But like jazz music, the simplest sections can hold the most complex of chords, single notes falling and merging into the next, easing through twists and turns with a sensuous beauty. These pieces are painted on large art paper, and designed to showcases the strong movement, relying on shape and colour to paint the music. Subtle perspective shifts draw you in as you engage with the works over time.
