Four Seasons 2011-2012
This series is linked by the idea of suspension, both in medium (color in water) and subject (form in motion). The process of listening to music entails a multivalent perception of the piece as a continuously changing moment and a single reconstructed memory. These paintings are an attempt to suspend this contradiction in a form that can remain present, though not unchanged, through the experience of the musical performance. The titles and inspiration are drawn from Toru Takemitsu's violin duet, "Rocking Mirror Daybreak."
