Jammin' Acrylic 30 x 24 SOLD
I've been asked about my jazz paintings currently on exhibit at the Victoria International Airport. So here are three of the images to give you an idea. They are part of a series called
"The Architecture of Jazz". This scene is the entrance to Market Square in Victoria, a popular place for festivals in the Summer.
Musical Spaces 2 Original Acrylic 30 x 24 $700 +s/h
These paintings were done with a palette knife on textured canvas. The canvas was textured first with molding paste, then the paint built up in many layers, creating a lot of depth and texture, to echo the depth and texture of jazz music. This scene depicts a loft space in Old Town with a view of the much loved Johnson Street Bridge, or the Blue Bridge, through the window.
Backstage Bebop Acrylic on Canvas 30 x 24 $700 + s/h
The concept behind these paintings is that jazz musicians play together as a combo, then depart individually into their own musical space as they launch into improvisation. The musical spaces are represented by the architectural features of doorways, leaning and tilting as they move to the riffs and grooves of the music. Backstage Bebop has a forties feel to it, as so much great jazz music came out of that era. It depicts a lone musician warming up backstage.
