Wait, WHAT? Music and painting?
Where painting and music meet
Listening to great music has taught me much about the act of creation. Inspiring, dreaming, exploring, inventing--these are all reflections of the emotional and "motional" world created by a piece of music. My paintings are chronicles of my personal encounters with music, and I try to make each work a fusion of air, light and passion as I immerse myself in both new and old masterworks of sound. In 2016, I founded an art-music making performance laboratory, called Parallel Play SF with co-creator Deanna Badizadegan, violist and virtuoso collaborator. We create art experiences fusing art and music in the studio, and we invite audiences to participate, learn and enjoy.
