I recently completed a piece for an exciting upcoming exhibition called Painted Sound, a project curated by Ixie Darkonn and Alexandra Mazzanti (Dorothy Circus Gallery) that opens at Flower Pepper Gallery in Pasadena later this month. Inspiration for each piece came from my go-to inspiration… MUSIC! Artist’s chose a song, painted their hearts out, and wrote about how and why the song inspired them. The painting images / descriptions from the 46 artists taking part will exhibit AND be made into a small book coming out later this month (will keep you posted about that!). Here’s my piece…
Circe (pronounced SUR-see)
inspired by the song Now’s the Only Time I Know by Fever Ray
11″ x 14″
Graphite/Acrylic/Oil on Canvas
EXHIBITION: Flower Pepper Gallery, Pasadena, CA | Jan 26th – Feb 28th, 2013
