The three pieces featured here are all the same
Miles Davis quote. As the words imply, the work is
the result of playing.
The first version is done in sumi ink with an eye
dropper used for the letters. My intent is for the
words to be illegible and for the piece to make you
ask the question —What is it? The gray is a mix of
sumi and water and the red highlights are done in
The next piece has a
wash of walnut ink. The rectangles, squares and circles are done in
watercolor. There is a softness about the colors and where they have
mixed they have the appearance of sea glass. The lettering is done in
sumi and the small gold circles are gilded in 14K gold.|
The last piece is done entirely in sumi ink. The intent is for the
design to flow and for the words to have a dance-like quality.
