Another music themed post, with another early journey expressing late nights filled with emotionally charged music performed by close friends.
This one means alot to me. I have shared it before .
Early on, I began to focus on the importance of gesture in hands. I made them larger and more important than they seem to be in nature or photography. I distort them into unattractive unnatural shapes that express emotion and drive the narrative.. For guitarists, its all in the fingers, the music lives through touch..
These early musician paintings developed a vocabulary of shapes that would evolve and propel my current work.
With continuing gratitude to Pedro, Little J., Bash, Dupester, and Gabs.
