I remember as a youngster reading Stendhal’s Rouge et Noir, and that always stays with me, subliminally somewhere… Then I remember a teacher telling me “White, is the presence of all color.” But then adding to that, as is black.
So I’ve been pondering a series called Rouge, Noir Et Blanc, painted to music. The work would be imbued with the “rhythm and color” of the music. When I work in this vein, I get lost in both the process and the product. It’s magic! It works magic on me.
