Musical Abstracts

Deadlines make art happen. In this instance, a deadline + a studio full of problematic paintings + an empty sketchbook + my love for music resulted in a body of work in a brand new style. 

Every painting in this series is my visual impression of a song. They started out as rapid sketches I made while listening. I kept going until I filled up my sketchbook. It took 15 months to translate all 59 sketches into finished paintings. I worked in small groups with a shared palette, changing my approach slightly with each group. The completed body of work is colorful and full of layered geometric shapes, creating a sense of motion in each piece. Sizes range from 9x12" to 20x30" and include board, canvas, and paper as substrates.

Completed paintings are shown below along with a clean line drawing of the starting sketch. All are painted with acrylic.
